Church in the Making: What Makes or Breaks a New Church before it Starts
by Ben Ament
Nearly eighty percent of all new churches fail, leaving countless discouraged church planters wondering why. Ben Arment
answers their question with Church in the Making
by identifying and expanding on three God ordained conditions
that make for a successful church plant even before the doors open: Good Ground
just as Jesus based his ministry on the openness of people’s hearts, we must gauge the spiritual receptivity of our
community before planting a church. If the people are not yet open to the Gospel, the first step is to cultivate their hearts. Rolling Rocks
– momentum is also key to the success of new churches. If God truly builds
his church, then our job is not to start from scratch, but rather to identify where he is already bringing people, funds, and other
resources together for his purposes. Deep Roots
– wherever there’s a church in
the making, God provides a group of leaders who can align people and resources in order to achieve and sustain the
church’s mission. Lone planters have a much less hope of succeeding, let alone surviving.
