"The third leg on the 3-legged stool of missions is Church-Planting. The church is founded on the person and deity of Jesus Christ." ~ Dr. Bud Steadman, guest speaker at the 2023 Missions Conference
Watch Monday evening's message from Matthew 16:13-20 entitled "The Three-Legged Stool of Church-Planting" part 3 of our 2023 Missions Conference series "The Three-Legged Stool of Missions."
In this message we will consider how the Church at Philippi was planted in Acts 16.
The Sovereignty of God in the Formation of the Church.
The Salvation of the lost to form the Church.
The Suffering of the Saints for the Church
The Supervision of the Church
God builds His church by His sovereign providence, the preaching of His Word, and the establishment of new congregations.
Robert Rothwell prepared this sermon but fell ill before he could deliver it. Josh Owen delivered it from his outline.
The Gospel message has a huge, life-changing impact on society. As you read the book of Acts, this idea blasts across each page as a primary message. Does it do the same in a culture that has no Judeo Christian background at all? This Sunday, we'll discover how Paul shares this glorious message with a city that was totally secular. What do we do when we approach people who have no knowledge of the Bible at all? Where do we start?
Acts 18 recounts the story of God's ordinary providence which brought together a ministry team which would lead to many fruitful years of ministry. God wants us to delight in His providence in the ordinary details of our lives.
