Why do we help start churches?

There is no command in the Bible to plant churches. There is, however, a very clear mandate for followers of Jesus to reproduce themselves… always and everywhere. Simply put, we start new churches to connect people to Life in Jesus. And there is nothing like a life-giving local church for getting the job done.


“Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you.”
Matthew 28:19-20


Place a reminder in your calendar to pray for new churches and new church leaders.


Provide funding for new churches through the ACTS Church Network.
