In my opinion the greatest church mentioned in the New Testament is the church at Ephesus. This one congregation started over a dozen new churches.
- Church in the house of Nymphas
- Church in the house of Philemon
- Church in the house of Aquilla and Priscilla
Through multiplication "all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus" (Acts 19:10).
Consider these facts:
- Multiplication is always stronger than addition.
- Healthy organisms reproduce.
- God is glorified when we bear fruit (John 15:8).
How long has it been since your church planted or helped to plant another church?
