“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hgades shall not prevail against it.” – Matthew 16:18 NKJV
“but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.” – 1 Timothy 3:15 NKJV
When we plant new churches, we reach new people and new cultures.
When we plant new churches, we empower new leaders.
When we plant new churches, we plant seeds of social transformation.
In the Book of Acts we can see how the Apostle Paul was sent out to establish new churches in unreached areas. These congregations formed a visible witness to their communities and became the “salt and light” that Jesus referred to in Matthew 5:13-16.
Disciples Community bears the same vision for planting churches. There are many places and peoples in need of a tangible witness of the Gospel message which is the ‘Too good to be true’ news, and we trust that God will use the new churches planted by Disciples Community to build His kingdom in Pune, India and cross-culturally across nations. These churches will not only lead people to salvation in Jesus Christ, but also disciple and train them to reach out to the unreached with the transforming message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The local church is God’s chosen vessel to reach the world with the Gospel message, and Disciples Community is committed to planting churches in every villages, towns, cities in India and then across nations until our Lord returns. We have a vision to spread the good news cross-culturally in India and across nations. By establishing a consistent witness in new areas, we hope that people will not only receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, but also be discipled and trained in His word to reach others with the transforming message of Christ.
