Church Planting Overview
The mission of the Rushwave Church Planting ministry is to establish believers in the Christian faith by founding independent, non-denominational churches primarily comprised of new converts. The vision is for each church to be:
- a loving community recognized by the world as Jesus' disciples on account of their great love for one another.
- a relational community where people spiritually engage by praying for, visiting, caring for, and exhorting one another from God's word.
- a holy community characterized by sexual purity, honesty, self-control, generosity, conscientiousness, and reverence for all human life — especially the terminally ill and the unborn.
- a church that establishes believers in the Christian faith by providing studies on Bible books, Christian living, and theological topics.
- a church service with worshipful, inspirational music and singing that draws individuals into the presence of the Lord.
- a church service with extended open, corporate prayer from godly men interspersed with biblically sound, intelligible, exhortations as spiritual gifts are exercised in an orderly manner.
- a church service with exemplary verse-by-verse Bible teaching that details the original intent of a passage combined with personal, present day, practical applications.
- a community with distributed pastoral care through small groups led by godly, mature Elders who are able to teach, knowledgeable of the Christian faith, possess managerial skills, and lead by example.
- a serving community with church members who launch, own and manage those ministries which God calls them to found.
- an evangelistic community with a strong emphasis on reaching the lost by individuals sharing the gospel in their relational spheres as they have opportunity.
- a community that seeks to establish other like-minded churches comprised primarily of new converts, especially in unevangelized areas.
- a community that remembers brethren who are persecuted and imprisoned for their faith.
