Help Establish Local Churches
“Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.” –Philippans 4:15
We would be lying or compromising if we said expanding Christ’s Church in our modern culture was easy work. We are in a depressed economy, a post-Christian culture, plagued by continual scandals involving both apostate and even orthodox ministers and churchmen and an apostate Church. All of this adds up to a field so overgrown it is difficult to work.
Yet, our trust is in God and it is important that we keep our eyes upon Him lest we become discouraged. We must remember our purpose for such a time as this.
“For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.” –Psalm 78:5-8
We are in a rebuilding process just like Ezra and Nehemiah were in their day. However, every generation is a rebuilding stage.
President Ronald Reagan rightly observed, “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”
If Reagan’s words are true civilly, you can be assured they are also true on the theological end.
As Francis Schaeffer wrote,
“Defense is proper and necessary because in every age historic Christianity will be under attack. Defense does not mean being on the defensive. One must not be embarrassed about the use of the word defense. The proponents of any position who are alive to their own generation must give a sufficient answer for it when questions are raised about it…Such answers are necessary in the first place for myself as a Christian if I am going to maintain my intellectual integrity, and if I am to keep united my personal, devotional and intellectual life” (A Christian Worldview, p153).
Theologically we are always under attack. Still yet, our day holds a more extreme caution because the generation before us lost the last vestments of a Christian nation. This makes our work even more important because we are battling against extinction.
While we know Christianity will not become extinct but will be victorious over all the enemies of Christ, in our national context we are battling against extinction.
One of the overlooked and most important battles is the establishment of true churches and/or the reformation of apostate churches.
This is the work to which God has called us. We believe the establishment of faithful churches is paramount; our objective is to be able to engage existing churches in hopes of reformation. However, we will never be useful in engaging the broader Church and culture until our local church here in Mooresville is proven.
For this to happen it is going to take resources. Every example in the Old Testament and New Testament proves the importance of having the right resources to establish and expand Christ’s Kingdom.
“Then the chief of the fathers and princes of the tribes of Israel, and the captains of thousands and of hundreds, with the rulers of the king’s work, offered willingly, And gave for the service of the house of God of gold five thousand talents and ten thousand drams, and of silver ten thousand talents, and of brass eighteen thousand talents, and one hundred thousand talents of iron.” –1 Chronicles 29:6-7
“Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.” –Philippians 4:15-17
Our first priority is to establish the foundations in which to evangelize the lost and defend the faith locally and as far as our voice will reach.
To do this we need to get to the point where we can rent or buy a building for our worship and fellowship in order to gather the elect here in central Indiana. A building is also needed for our evangelistic outreach in order to fulfill Christ’s commission.
To effectively evangelize in this day we live demands audio, video and print resources. This takes equipment and all of this takes money, time and hard work.
While truth is all important it is also helpful to produce high quality material. We will begin, as we have in the past, with the resources God has given us. We are required to be faithful no matter our circumstances; still yet, it is our desire to proclaim the Word of God in the highest quality possible.
Join us in rebuilding Christ’s Holy Church in Mooresville and abroad. It is vital that we renew the emphasis on the local church and realize that the Church is the only organization God has promised will defeat the darkness (Matthew 16:18).
“So the workmen wrought, and the work was perfected by them, and they set the house of God in his state, and strengthened it.” –2 Chronicles 24:13
