Antioch Baptist Church Planters have a burden to start and revitalize churches in America. Our current God-given burden is the north Texas area where there are millions of people that need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.
According to a 1999 Gallup poll, 70% of Americans were church members. In 2018, that number had fallen to 50%. As that number continues to fall, the number of adults with no religious affiliation is growing. We need God-fearing, Bible-preaching churches!
We must get back to what God has instructed through His Word, which is to start or to revitalize churches. This was largely done by Paul in teams. Look at the following verses for the Biblical model God has given us:
7, ¶ And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
2, As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
1, ¶ Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:
1, ¶ Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother,
There are other verses that we could cite as well, but the Biblical process of starting and revitalizing churches is through a team. Paul, who wrote many of the books of the New Testament, most always had fellow laborers with him in his ministry.
