What is the purpose of the Church and what is God’s original intent for the Church? The Church began when the Holy Spirit showed up on the day of Pentecost.
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” Acts 2:1-4
There is not a certain expectation for the Church. We can be anywhere and be the Church, and everything that God says applies to us no matter where we meet.
How do we bring the gospel to this next generation with Church planting? It is said the quickest way to win souls is new Church plants. As the Church, we should always be thinking about how and where to plant the next Church. In this, we must be very careful how we lead Church plants. Greg shares how God spoke to him and said that He is going to teach him for three years what he can use for the next 30 years. As Greg talks about a Church plant that happened, he shares how healings broke out, people were having dreams and hearing from God like never before.
The Church is ready to see the power of God. In the context of this what was learned is to stay with Biblical principles. Ultimately, we need to watch what God is doing and hear from God in our time with Him. Be encouraged, get into the Word of God and be rightly related to your Pastor and your Church. What defines the Church is that we are walking out Biblical principles. At VFNKB we saw that we would need a training center that focuses on training and launching Pastors, missionaries and even business missionaries to be rightly related so they can plant the Church that they are called to plant.
Maybe you are called to be a part of VFN Dream Center? At VFN Dream center we are rightly related and in a Church planting state of mind while following Biblical principles. Join us and be a part of a launching pad and be launched into your destiny. We want to hear from you! You can write to us at [email protected]. Greg, Pat, and John shared in this segment.
