Disciples Making Disciples and Planting New Churches
The Lord does not delay [as though He were unable to act] and is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is [extraordinarily] patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
– 2 Peter 3:9
This [kind of praying] is good and acceptable and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who wishes all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge and recognition of the [divine] truth.
– 1 Timothy 2:3-4
But few disciples understand what His strategy is to accomplish this goal.
Planting New Churches
The Church is at the center of His strategy (Matthew 16:18).
Unfortunately, the picture that comes to many people’s minds when we talk about the Church is not even close to God’s intention or design for the Church.
As we read through the New Testament we can get this beautiful picture of what He designed the church to be and do, and how we can be a part of what He is doing in the world today.
God has a beautiful strategy for reaching the world through multiplying churches.
The ultimate goal of all disciple-making and leadership development is planting churches that multiply as a means to reach those who have yet to hear the Gospel in our world.
Our Biblical Mandate for Disciples Making Disciples
We can better understand the biblical mandate of planting fellowships of disciples that multiply themselves by exploring the following;
- God’s Design for the Church
- God’s Desire for Discipleship Multiplication
- Overcoming Obstacles to Church Growth
- 7 Practical Steps to Planting Reproducing Churches
God’s heartbeat is for a relationship with every person in the world, and billions are still waiting to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Winning a few people or planting an additional church or two is not enough. We must start movements of multiplying churches that will reach the world for Jesus. It is God’s plan and His calling.
What will you do today to make it happen?
How can we fulfill the mission of taking the Gospel to the ends of the world in our generation?
You’ve got an incredibly vital part to play!
Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
