Some on here refer to starting a church. But it seems that there are different definitions of that idea. For some, it seems, that a denomination would start a church if there were a certain number of people who were of that denominations mind set and doctrine. Sort of like the synagogue where the Jews would start one if there were a certain number of Jews. Others are using the idea of a person or persons starting a church and reaching new people with the Gospel. My idea and what we have helped to do is starting a church "from scratch", doing evangelism and discipling those new people. I get this from Paul going into new areas in Acts. What is your idea and definition of church planting?
