Glory of God

“Worship, therefore, is the fuel and goal of missions. It’s the goal of missions because in missions we simply aim to bring the nations into the white-hot enjoyment of God’s glory.”

2 nd the biblical base for church planting in the 21 st century
2nd The biblical base for church planting in the 21st century.

We need to build solidly on the biblical base and not on pragmatism.

9 biblical reasons for the planting and multiplication of new churches
9 Biblical Reasons for the Planting and Multiplication of New Churches:

HERE WE ARE BUILDING ON THE SOLID ROCK OF THE WORD OF GOD!

1 it is the will of god that his people multiply
1. It is the Will of God that His People Multiply.

Matthew 16:18 “I will build my church”

To build is an OT concept that Jesus uses to speak about His new community (His church) as seen in Ruth 4:11

This could be translated “I will multiply my new special community on earth”

Matthew 28:18- “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…”

1 it is the will of god that his people multiply1
1. It is the Will of God that His People Multiply.

The result of multiplying disciples is multiplying churches

-- More disciples

--Leads to the need of more churches for them

it is the will of god that his people multiply
It is the Will of God that His People Multiply.

Example of Church Planting Movements in China, Cuba, India.

Neil Cole’s “Church Multiplication Associates” (CMA) Network results in 700 house churches

Average attendance of 17 in each.

2 the activity of the holy spirit in the birth process
2. The Activity of the Holy Spirit in the Birth Process

The ministry of the Holy Spirit as seen in Acts is to bring people to faith and then to see them congregated in local churches that multiply:

See Acts 9:31 (“multiplied”)

See Acts 13:1 (“the work”)

3 the church is an organism a body
3. The Church is an Organism – a Body.

Organisms give birth to other organisms by reproduction as life generates life.

What is the true fruit of an apple tree?

Wrong: An apple.

Correct: Another apple tree.

4 the church functioning according to god s will
4. The Church functioning according to God’s will.

The church functioning according to God’s will “yearns”* for more to be added to Christ’s church and the result is church multiplication.

* This is the word used by Charles Van Engen in his book The Growth of the True Church (1981) p. 504

5 the church s wonderful power of spontaneous expansion
5. The Church’s Wonderful Power of “Spontaneous Expansion”

Rolland Allen first coined these words in his book The Spontaneous Expansion of the Church and the Causes which Hinder it (3rd edition 1956).

Basically he states that the Church grows “spontaneously by its own inward force…” p. 132.

5 the church s wonderful power of spontaneous expansion1
5. The Church’s Wonderful Power of “Spontaneous Expansion”

Question: Who makes the Church grow?

Answer? Yes, God does.

Then what do we do?

Encourage the conditions of growth and do not hinder growth or multiplication.

6 the example of the self giving of christ
6. The Example of the Self-Giving of Christ.

What is to be the goal of a church?

To just get larger and larger for itself?

Or to “give” of itself (Philippians 2:1-11) for others and plant new churches thus encouraging new Christians and new leaders.

7 the model as seen in the book of acts
7. The Model as seen in the Book of Acts.

In Acts we see churches growing but we also see a constant new flow of new churches as a result of missional centres being set up.

This is what happened with Paul on his second missionary journey.

8 the longing to see local bodies of believers in each town or city
8. The Longing to See Local Bodies of Believers in Each Town or City.

Everywhere we go in Acts we see new churches being planted in new cities so that each city had its own church and in many cases many house churches in one city.

Churches truly multiplied:

House churches & “whole church”

Corinth – Cenchrae (11 kms SE of Corinth)

Ephesus & 6 new churches.

9 christ manifests himself in each area by local churches
9. Christ manifests Himself in Each Area by Local Churches.

Paul writes to the Corinthians and says: “Now you are the body of Christ…” 1 Cor 12:27

This means that each local church shows Christ in its local area. So the more churches there are, the more Christ is manifested.
