How You Can Help Church Planting

If you’ve ever desired to support the work of missions and church planting, but haven’t really known where to begin, let me help you. There has always been a great need to plant churches. In fact, there will always be a need to plant churches until the Lord Jesus Christ comes back. This is quite evident through the multitudes of people who have yet to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But here’s the deal; we are presented with an even greater challenge of not only planting churches, but planting thoroughly Biblical churches for the glory of God and the good of man. Read more.

What exactly is this initiative all about?

The organization’s name, Grace Baptist Partnership and its strap line explains it all.

“Grace” reflects the soteriology of the group. They joyfully affirm the doctrines of grace.

“Baptist” reflects the group’s ecclesiology. They unashamedly hold to Baptist distinctives including a baptised membership and a disciplined table.

“Partnership” reflects the group’s methodology. They desire true partnership in the gospel—one that recognizes the interdependence of the churches without sacrificing their independency.

The strap line, helping churches plant churches, clarifies that the partnership itself will not plant churches. Rather, it will use its experience in church planting to help churches plant churches in their respective areas and beyond.

How will this work be funded?

The trustees have authorised Barry King to raise funds on behalf of the partnership. He is encouraging those who desire to assist in the work to make a £400.00 annual contribution. The GBP general secretary explains that for a little more than a pound a day a church or even individuals within a church can play a vital role in forwarding the objectives of this partnership. Cheques made payable to ‘Grace Baptist Partnership’ can be sent to Grace Baptist Partnership, 48-50 Park Ridings, London, N8 0LD. Gift aid forms are available on request. Read more.

How does Grace Baptist Partnership relate to Grace Baptist Mission?

Partnership leaders view the two groups as complementary rather than competitive. Grace Baptist Partnership desires that the new churches planted as a result of the initiative will become a primary source of missionaries and missionary support in the years ahead. Grace Baptist Partnership extends thanks to Grace Baptist Mission for encouraging the development of the partnership in various ways. Read more.
