You may have asked yourself, "Why plant more churches? Every day millions of people suffer from dehydration, AIDS, and abuse. Shouldn't you build wells and health clinics instead of planting churches?"
That is a great question. Here is our answer...
In Ephesians 3:10 Paul states it is "God's intent that, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known." Despite their circumstances, when people know God and are engaged in a local body of believers, they are no longer hopeless.
When a healthy church is planted in a local community, it creates leaders who feel empowered to bring about change within the communities through the Holy Spirit. With renewed hope, local leaders establish a variety of sustainable ministries, which will help to transform their communities. A holistic and contextualized response to all kinds of human needs can be achieved through local bodies of believers that can share the love of Christ in all kinds of practical ways. Programs that provide AIDS education or domestic abuse violence can work through the church for lasting impact.
