Empowering believers worldwide to reach their own people for Jesus Christ
For North America to be joyfully obedient to the leadership of Jesus Christ
For the past 10 years, Big Life Ministries has focused on fulfilling its mission, Empowering believers worldwide to reach their own people for Jesus Christ, specifically in the geographical regions of Central & South Asia. During this timespan we have seen the Lord accomplish far beyond what we ever thought or imaged - over 130,000 former Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists coming to Christ, being trained to be disciple-makers and participating weekly in the 10,000+ house churches that have been established. Truly, this has been an amazing movement of the Holy Spirit.
The strategy that Big Life has used in our discipleship and church planting efforts overseas is based on the same principles that the Lord used to rapidly grow the early New Testament church. Having witnessed this explosive growth in very difficult countries, such as Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, etc, coupled with our deep burden by the declining health of the church in North America, we now have a vision of North America being joyfully obedient to the leadership of Jesus Christ.
To achieve this vision we are partnering with Kingdom-minded churches, organizations and house churches across North America as well as equipping God-called believers with no church affiliation to engage their communities through a house church planting strategy.
Here's where you will discover the "back-to-the-basics" approach to house church planting, and have the opportunity to explore the biblical "DNA" of the process
House churches should meet at least once a week to maintain community. From the New Testament, we can piece together a clear picture of the believers meeting together as churches on the first day of the week. While this is probably the most desirable time, some churches may elect to meet at another time during the week that is more convenient to the members. Some churches may elect to meet more frequently than once a week, some less frequently.
By intentionally focusing on the foundational principles of Prayer, Worship, Discipleship, Evangelism, Missional living, and Multiplication!
Here is where you will find some great information that is designed to equip, empower, and encourage the house church planter!
