Why Plant Churches?
We were called by Jesus to make Him known, starting with those in our neighborhoods and cities (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). Throughout the book of Acts, wherever the gospel was proclaimed and people believed, a church was formed (Acts 16:9, 12; Rom. 15:19, 23).
No single church can reach every person in a community with the gospel. New churches reach 6-8 times more un-churched people than existing churches of the same size. Additionally, new churches have proven to promote the health of existing churches.
A church plant that plants churches
Our vision is not just to start one new church in Kansas City, but to train up pastors and leaders who plant churches as they proclaim the gospel across Kansas City, the United States and around the globe.
Our goal is to plant a new church within five years of launching Proclaim.
