Luke 16:9 NIV
Use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.

Proverbs 29:18 MSG
If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.

843 Churches Planted Since 2013

The single most effective evangelistic methodology under heaven is planting new churches… Remember this simple fact: It’s easier to have babies than to raise the dead! Not that all existing churches are dead… Most can and should be brought to life by the power of the Holy Spirit. Still the most exciting part of the hospital is the maternity ward.

~ Peter Wagner – Professor at Fuller Theological Seminary

If people who so express their desire to follow Jesus are not subsequently folded into a local congregation, their decision may turn out to be nothing more than a gesture. They never become disciples of Jesus Christ.

~ Peter Wagner – Professor at Fuller Theological Seminary

Matthew 16:15-18 ESV
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 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.

1st Jesus is building His Church

Ephesians 5:25-27a MSG
Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her…

Ephesians 1:20-23 MSG
At the center of all this, Christ rules the church. The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church. The church is Christ’s body, in which he speaks and acts, by which he fills everything with his presence.

2nd Jesus wants to use you!

Matthew 16:18 ESV
you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church…

3rd Jesus Promises His Church will be effective

Matthew 16:18 ESV
I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
