Today, we planted a new church in Warri, under CGMI Unusual Province called "Church Ablaze." As I was commissioning the branch, the microphone went out, but, it didn't stop me from projecting my voice and making sure the message was still received.
I encouraged the leadership to follow the Biblical pattern of Church Growth and planting. Keep EVANGELISM as their supreme task and seek out the lost, broken and hurting.
The preaching of the Gospel is needed the most in places and to people who don't know the loving, saving power of Christ Jesus. We need to stop proclaiming how great our churches are and stop drawing believers into our churches by making them think that our messages, music ministries and environment is better. We need to deliberately go to the lost and hurting souls and bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. . Real church growth only happens through evangelism.
Matthew 10:5-8 “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received freely give." Romans 1:17, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation"
