Passion for Planting exists to equip church planting leaders to plant healthy multiplying churches.
We are a non-profit church planting support ministry started by a group of church planters from New Life Christian Church. New Life was started as a church planting church, and, through God’s blessing, we have helped start many additional multiplying churches. In 2002, our vision was to help start one new church every year and to be actively working with at least four church planters at any given time. And now, through God’s blessing, we’ve helped start over 280 churches and we’ve indirectly supported numerous other church plants worldwide. Passion for Planting is an outgrowth of our local church experience and our passion to help start healthy, multiplying churches.
Our Purpose and Beliefs
We exist to:
- Help planters discover their aptitude, calling, and readiness for church planting (Assessment).
- Help educate church planters on best practices and nuts & bolts of church planting (training via Distance Residency Cohort and Boot Camp).
- Work alongside planters to help develop and implement plans and strategies during their startup (Project Management).
- Come alongside the planter to help them “land the plane” well for Launch Day and beyond (Coaching).
- Deliver practical tools to help planters accomplish their mission (PlanterPlan Project Management Tool and our free downloadable resources).
- God, the Creator of the world, is all powerful and all knowing. God’s ways are perfect and He despises sin.
- Man is separated from God due to sin. Without redemption from sin, man’s end is death.
- People matter to God. His love for man is so deep that God initiated action to cover man’s sin and to make a way for man to be reconciled to Him.
- Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Head of the church, is the only way to God and to eternal life. Jesus died for our sins, and rose from the dead so that man could be redeemed from his sinful nature and restored to a right relationship with God.
- Forgiveness of sins and eternal life are available to all who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Those accepting Jesus Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into Him.
- The Holy Spirit lives within and empowers every Christian.
- The Bible is the inspired word of God.
- The Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to evangelize the lost and to edify the believer.
