Why plant another church in Brisbane Australia?
Surprisingly Christians often ask me this question. My answer:
The planting of a new 'church planting church' located in the Southern Inner City region of Brisbane, Australia is strategic for the following reasons;
1. The catchment area is populated by hundreds of thousands of unchurched people who need to be introduced to Christ and the life He offers.
2. Research shows that Brisbane is the fastest growing capital city of Australia and is strategically located in the heart of one of the fastest growing regions of the nation.
3. Research shows that the Australian Protestant church is not only in rapid decline but is also moving through a period of cultural transition.
4. Research overwhelmingly supports the effectiveness of church plants in evangelism, discipleship and gospel contextualization.
