All in church planting

I believe that diversity is a battle worth taking up in church planting and revitalization. For in diversity, we see the heart of God and his beauty. At the end of the day, I want people to look at our community and see that something supernatural is happening. We desire to be a community that is ONLY held together by the blood of the Lamb - not our likes, dislikes, experiences, and needs.  In diversity, you know the Lord is doing a work in people because no one would be there for any other reason. It’s too messy; it’s too hard; it’s too complicated. But through Christ it’s beautiful.

Isn’t the United States of America a “Christian” nation? Isn’t the slogan, “In God We Trust,” engraved on our national currency? Aren’t there plenty of church buildings dotting the landscape already? And aren’t there enough dying churches which we should first revitalize before we start planting new ones? Do we really need new churches to be planted in the United States? The answer to that question is an emphatic, “Yes!”
