My entire ministry career since 1981 has been connected with church planting. Even before then, the first church Carolyn and I joined after being married in 1979 was a church plant. Even when both of us were children, our parents joined in to help start new churches. Yet some don’t have this background and wonder, “Why do we need new churches?”

This question is understandable, especially in some places and situations where:

  • There seems to be a church on every corner.

  • Churches are small and struggling.

  • People have tried to start new churches but they have failed.

  • The sacrifice and money used to start new churches doesn’t seem worth it.

So why do we need new churches? Listen to this podcast to find out.

Here are some of the verses related to this topic:


No one pours new wine into old wineskins. The wine would swell and burst the old skins. Then the wine would be lost, and the skins would be ruined. New wine must be put into new wineskins.” (Mark 2:22 CEV)


On this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” (Matthew 16:18b NIV)


But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes to you. Then you will be my witnesses to testify about me in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 GW)
