MULTIPLY THE CHURCH
We support and initiate missional community and church multiplication.
As we work together with many like-minded churches and mission agencies, we serve as a catalyst to help plant 160,000 new churches and faith communities.
We long for Acts 6:7 to be true of American cities today: “the Word of God spread and the disciples multiplied.”
HOW THE GOSPEL SPREAD IN THE BOOK OF ACTS
SENT 6:7 is a training process to equip people to initiate, build and multiply faith communities and discipleship groups, so that every follower of Jesus has a place for connection, growth and be equipped, and everyone will know someone who truly follows Jesus. Click here to learn more about it.
"the Word of God spread and the disciples multiplied"
understanding the elements of spiritual and city gospel movements
In this article and Bible Study (that you can donwload below) we will …
- define movement from a purely academic and historical point of view, and then apply the Word of God to the discussion by looking at Jesus’ model of ministry—the greatest example of movement in history.
- look at various passages in the Gospels where Jesus and His disciples are in motion (with momentum) and where the word “multitudes” are recorded. As we explore the characteristics of Jesus’ ministry, we will better define movement while we uncover both the essence of His leadership and the movement He led.
- discern what should characterize the ministry direction of City Gospel Movements in order to help us arrive at a proper integration of all the elements of movement life so we can face the changes, challenges, problems and opportunities with greater success.
IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR THE FIRST CENTURY CHURCH TO RECORD THE PROGRESS OF THE CHURCH AND THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE GOSPEL.
