Total Church: Church Planting

August 6, 2007

“To ask how the principles of gospel, mission and community apply to church planting is to ask the wrong question. Mission and community do not apply. Church planting is the outworking of mission and community. It is the point where mission and community intersect. It is by definition a missionary activity, arguably the missionary activity of the core missionary activity. It ensures mission is at the heart of church life. But church planting is by definition a church activity. It defines missional activity as forming and building churches. Church planting puts mission at the hear to of church and church at the heart of mission.”
