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 1:8, was preached at the fourth session of the 2018 annual Sola 5 Conference, hosted by Brackenhurst Baptist Church in Alberton, South Africa.

The conference also featured messages from Phil Hunt (Kitwe Church), Sammy Leballo (Moletsane Baptist Church), Mario Maneville (Reformed Faith Mission Community Church), Conrad Mbewe (Kabwata Baptist Church), and Chris Woolley (Midrand Chapel).

The Need for Discomfort in Church Planting (Acts 1:8)

If church revitalisation is like raising the dead (a difficult task by anyone’s standard—except Christ’s!), church planting is like giving birth (easier, perhaps, but still painful and labourious). Still, like childbirth, church planting can be difficult, messy, noisy, and worrying but it is worth it in the long run. In fact, the New Testament argues that there is something of a need for discomfort in church planting.
