To be faithful in the mission that Christ has given to his church, we need to be deliberate and intentional in planting self-governing churches. It is one thing to respond to requests from people to plant works where there is need, but there is need for our churches to be intentional in targeting strategic areas that need healthy, biblical churches.
This sermon, based on Acts 14:23–26, was preached at the third session of the 2018 annual Sola 5 Conference, hosted by Brackenhurst Baptist Church in Alberton, South Africa.
