Acts 16:5 “So the churches were strengthened in the faith, and increased in number daily.”
The goal is maturing bodies of growing believers
It’s not an accident that God commands all believers to function within a church body. He has put us into the universal body of Christ, and designed us to serve and grow best within the community of the local church body. Paul and his fellow laborers implemented Christ’s command to “make disciples of all nations” by establishing churches. It makes sense — disciples and thriving churches go hand-in-hand.
Following the pattern seen in Acts as God’s people carried out the Great Commission, we seek to establish mature churches that can take their rightful place as agents of change in their own communities and partners in the Great Commission.
