Why start a church?

            There are many great churches in Delaware. They all proclaim Jesus as Lord and make an impact in people’s lives inside their church. The reason to start a church in Delaware is to make an impact outside of the church building. Churches proclaim the love of Christ inside but if you do not happen to go and visit the church then the church has no impact on society. Creating a church that spends 50% of its time inside “the building” and 50% outside “the building” will have a much bigger impact on society.

Why not simply work within an existing church to make an impact in Delaware?

            Every church has a vision, a direction of what their programs and efforts are. The people have bought into those and decided to either join as a member or to regularly attend. In order to make an impact outside the church requires a dramatic shift in a church’s priorities and that is very difficult to accept.  Whenever there is a shift in priorities in a church many within will feel threatened and withdraw as they feel that they have lost their church. Vision must come from the Senior leadership of any church, without that fundamental backing any vision will not be accomplished.
