Episode 415: Planting a Biblically-Faithful Church

In Episode 415 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Ed discuss church planting a biblically-faithful church.

“If you live in a town that has had many churches, but most of the churches are dead or have gone the extremely liberal route, how does one go about trying to plant a biblically-faithful church in that context? Do you think it is beneficial to begin with more of an at-home Bible study house church model and as it grows expand? Or start directly with a location of sorts and a launch team?”

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • How to distinguish your church
  • The best way to plant a church in this context
