“What would it take to reach our city with the gospel and advance the Kingdom of God in our midst?”

The Multiplying Church

slide4

“And what you have heard from

me in the presence of many witnesses, commit to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”

2 Timothy 2:2

Multiplication

slide5

“A multiplying church is a

community of Christ followers who abandon themselves to live out the Great Commission through the multiplication of disciples, small groups, leaders, and churches.”

Definition

slide8

They are driven by a vision to reach their

  • city with the gospel, not necessarily to
  • grow a large church.
  • “As He (Jesus) approached and saw the city, He wept over it…”
  • Luke 19:41

Characteristics

slide9

They are driven by a vision to reach their

  • city with the gospel, not necessarily to grow a large church.
    • They embrace the values of Jesus and the Kingdom.
    • They develop partnerships and collaborate with others.
    • Relationships are the “avenues” for effective ministry.

Characteristics

slide10

Christ is the vine, not the church

    • Then Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved…”
    • Mark 16:15

Characteristics

slide11

Christ is the vine, not the church

    • The gospel of Jesus Christ, and not the church, is the defining message of the multiplying church. (John 12:32)
    • Our problem in North America may be that the structures that give us support could be consuming our resources, energy and our people – and at times, the actual work that the systems and structures are there to support may be taking a back seat.

Characteristics

slide12

The making of disciples is not one of

  • many purposes for the church…
  • it is the purpose.
  • “Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations…” Matthew 28:19

Characteristics

slide13

Disciple Making is the Primary Purpose of the Church

    • “Disciple” is clearly defined and the stages of development are communicated.
    • They understand that disciples are made by someone and not by something. They create relational connections & environmentsthat foster growth and development.
    • They understand that disciples are typically made by walking them through a process.

Characteristics

slide16

Reproduction

Disciple making process

slide17

They believe that multiplication, and

  • therefore movements, are dependent upon
  • the development of leaders.
  • “And He personally gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, for the training of the saints in the work of the ministry.” Eph. 4:11-12

Characteristics

slide18

They believe that multiplication, and

  • therefore movements, are dependent upon
  • the development of leaders.
    • They believe that the best environment for identifying and developing leaders are apprenticeships in small groups.

They believe that community and

  • life-giving relationships are the keys to growth and development.
    • “Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as anyone had a need. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple complex, and broke bread from house to house… And every day the Lord added to themthose who were being saved.” Acts 2:44-47

Characteristics

slide21

Community and life-giving relationships are the keys to growth and development.

  • Community is the best context for disciple making, conducting missions, and developing leaders.
  • A small group needs to maintain balance in three areas: Communion with God, Community with believers & living out God’s commission.
