Why Church Planting?
We plant churches so that more people will be saved by Jesus as well as grow in love and service to both God and neighbor.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Jesus, in Acts 1:8
We believe the promise of Acts 1:8 will be ultimately fulfilled by Jesus, through his church, as they obey the great commission. For Ekklesia Muskogee, planting churches is a natural extension of Jesus’ command for us to make disciples of all nations. Church planting is a priority for us. We believe the book of Acts shows this: the way the first Christians sought to fulfill the great commission (Matthew 28:19-20) was by planting churches that would preach the gospel, love God, love their neighbors, and seek to plant other churches. Through churches, people hear about Jesus, come to faith in him, worship God, experience true community, and become part of Jesus’ mission here on earth. By God’s grace, we are committed to what we believe is the same mission of the Apostles in the book of Acts: plant the gospel in different communities across the globe by planting churches.
