Church Planting Information System
The ASBC Church Planting Information System (ASBC CPIS) is for you!
This new resource contains informational resources for sponsoring churches, supporting churches, church planters, ministry leaders, and for all those interested in church planting...
We encourage you to access the ASBC CPIS to...
- -- Get to know church planters in Arizona
- -- Pray for church planters in Arizona
- -- Get to know the people who help find resources for church planters
- -- Become aware of resources and helps for church planting
- -- Become a part of the Arizona Church Planting Community
We ask that you prayerfully consider how you may participate in spreading the Gospel through starting new churches...
Some of the ways to participate may be to:
- -- Pray for certain church planters and send them an email letting them know you are praying for them.
- -- Find a new church that is starting close to you and visit the new congregation to encourage them and see if they may be something you and/or your church could do to help them.
- -- Adopt a new church start as a mission project of your Bible Study class and/or youth group.
- -- Be a missionary by serving at a church start for a period of time such as six months or a year.
You can get to know the community in which you live and where your church is ministering through the use of demographics. ASBC Church Planting has provided for you access to a professional up to date demographic resource called MissionInSite.
The Bible says:"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember I am with you always, to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20 (HCSB)
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8 (HCSB)
The most effective evangelistic strategy to fulfill Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 1:8 is: Planting new churches!
The primary purpose of Church Planting in the Arizona Southern Baptist Convention is to help Southern Baptist Churches through Southern Baptist Associations to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through planting healthy, reproducing churches with evangelistic passion among all peoples in Arizona.
