Church Planting

← Back to What We Emphasize



We believe the planting of new congregations is the most effective strategy to renew cities and individual people. Nothing else — not outreach programs, parachurch ministries, growing megachurches, congregational consulting, or church renewal processes — has as consistently a positive impact as dynamic church planting. So a well respected missiologist like C. Peter Wagner says, “Planting new churches is the most effective evangelistic methodology known under heaven.” (See this article by Timothy Keller for more of the “why” behind church planting.)

Consider a city like Stockton, which is consistently in the bottom ten worst places to live in the United States. When we hear that we think, “We should plant a church there to aid in the renewal of that city” and so we have through the work of Rev. Martin Sisneroz.
