Acts 29: Churches Planting Churches

The Word of God is precious. It’s sweeter than honey and more desirable than gold, for in it we meet the living God. This is the almighty God who not only spoke the universe into existence, but also came to us in Christ to save us from the judgment we deserve.

“All Scripture is breathed out by God,” the apostle Paul writes, “profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16–17). With the Bible, then, we can truly say that we lack nothing.

This is good news for church-planting pastors. Yes, planting has many challenges. We can expect to be tested at every turn. But we can also be confident that God will guide us in all truth.

And yet it’s so easy to let worldly thinking seep into our ministries. We can be enticed by the latest growth strategy, recent trends in psychology, the newest leadership fads, or any number of other things. So we must fight to keep the Bible at the center of our lives and churches. We must never let the Bible lose its functional authority in all we say and do.

But this is easier said than done. So to help us think about keeping Scripture central in church planting, I’m excited to have Reuben Hunter with me on the podcast today.
