Why Start a Church?

Reading from bible

Maybe you’re thinking, “Do we really need more churches?” The answer is, “Yes.” Starting new churches is essential to obeying Christ. When Jesus Christ founded the church He gave His followers the command to go into all the world and preach the gospel. Preaching the “good news” of Christ is the primary responsibility of churches. Here are two more reasons why I am starting a church…

1. A New Generation
America is now considered the third largest mission field on the planet. It goes to show you that a Christian nation can rapidly turn from God in a short period of time. Listen to how God described a new generation of people in Judges 2:10, “There arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD…” This verse also describes the majority of people in our area today. They may know a lot about God, but only a handful truly know God. My wife and I moved from Knoxville, Tennessee to Savannah to start a church to teach people to know God, love God, and live their lives for God. God has a unique tailor-made plan and purpose for each of our lives, and we want to do all that we can to help you.

2. A Need for Bible Preaching

In 2 Timothy 4:2 the Bible says, “Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season.” God has called me to preach His Word. To preach means to proclaim God’s message. Preaching is a good thing that helps all of us learn what God has to say to each of us. Life can be difficult and confusing at times, but God’s Word is a light that guides us. Bible preaching may not be “in season,” but all of us need sound Bible preaching.
