PLANTING ROOTS IN OUR COMMUNITY
Jesus first instruction to us was…
Mark 1:17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”
Jesus last instruction to us was…
Mar 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen
Each and every one of us as born again believers have been given the ministry of reconciliation…
2Co 5:18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;
2Co 5:19 That is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
2Co 5:20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
At Rhema Family Centre we are not ashamed of the Gospel because it is the power of God unto salvation. We will be obedient to the Lord and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ at every opportunity.
The single most effective way to evangelise is to plant new churches.Whenever a church is planted within a community, be warned that the Kingdom of God has arrived and all the works of darkness are directly opposed. Where light is, darkness is dispelled.
Mat 16:18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
1 Cor 3:6-9 I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. 7 It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. 8 The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. 9 For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building.
We become aware through this scripture that church planting involves more than one person. This becomes a team effort where God may use many and different people so that in the end it is God who actually gives the increase.
Where Churches do not have a vision to multiply, these are not truly obedient to the will of God.It is clear from the scripture that God wants every man, woman and child to hear and understand the Gospel and also have the opportunity to believe in and obey the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. The Gospel is to reach every nation, region, city, town, village and neighbourhood in their language with a universal culture that is “The Kingdom of God Culture”.
Entrenched within our vision at Amanzimtoti Christian Centre is our passionate desire for church planting. We have seen firsthand the fulfilment of the Great Commission through planting churches.
Leaders are raised up, communities are touched by the Gospel and changed. People receive hope and purpose for their lives.Homecells are established and new believers are discipled. Pastors are trained and equipped for service. People take ownership of their new church and develop a culture of self worth and community involvement. Most importantly the Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached and a new generation of Christians are discipled who will in turn go out and fulfil the Great Commission.
Please join us as we step out in faith and obedience to the calling of the Lord. We welcome your support and participation in this labour of Love.
