Summary: church planting challenage

IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?

Romans 10:13-21

Text being 13-15 Romans For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Folks I’m not going to be crazy like the rumors have been told.

Yet there is no prove that I do that. You know foam at the mouth,scream & holler or get excited.

But I do want to share my heart with you, & hopefully share my burden that the Lord has called me to do.

As way of introduction may I share this with you?

In America there are:

(1) over 282,000,000 million souls

(2) Nearly 30,000,000 million profess no religion

(3) 71% of the population is unconverted or nominally Christian

(4) over 4,000 churches of all kind close each year

(5) 6 out of 10 children under 16 have never been to Sunday School

(6) 7 out of 10 teenagers over 16 have never been to church

(7) over 4,000 abortions performed each day

(8) Over 500 murders each day (According to Bob Jones University web page)

(Why did I mention these – Because without Christ this is part of the wickness)

I don’t know about you – This bothers me

IS THERE NOT A CAUSE

We give to the foreign field- That’s great

But we have forgotten about our own back yard

We have gotten away from starting churches in South Texas.

People are dying & going to Hell everyday in South Texas

As we travel in South Texas & look at the people

NO HOPE – NO DIRECTION- NO SMILE

We find the Catholic – Methodist- Lutheran- Jehovah False Witness

Yes even 1st & 2nd Baptist Churches in these towns

MY QUESTION TO YOU IS THIS

ARE THEY PREACHING THE GOSPEL?

DO THEIR PEOPLE KNOW

IF THEY WERE TO DIE! WHERE WOULD THEY SPEND ENTERNITY?

A young man 18 years old w/girlfriend. He didn’t believe at all in Jesus

Man & his son on their porch. He stopped his son from trusting in Jesus. (I believe he did)

A man & his son told us they had their own way.

A Baptist young man didn’t know how to go to heaven (a Baptist)

Another man told us he was part of a group that kicked Jesus out 800 years ago

IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?

We calling this outreach

MISSIONARY TO OUR HOMELAND

PLANTING LOCAL CHURCHES IN SMALL TEXAS TOWNS

Proverbs 23: 10a Remove not the old landmark....

THE BIBLE TALKS OF NOT REMOVING NOT THE OLD LANDMARKS

BUT WE HAVE DONE THAT VERY THING

GOTTON AWAY FROM STARTING CHURCHES IN OUR HOMELAND

In the old days a Preacher would move to a town & start preaching

We have gotten away from that

Men what a church already built

Not work it like the old days 1 Door at a time

In Ezekiel 22:30 the Bible says this

And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

Again in Isaiah

Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

I want to be that man to stand in the gap

My desire is to go into South Texas Towns under God’s direction

Where there is no Independent Fundamental Baptist Church & get busy

WE ARE LOOKING RIGHT NOW TO START IN

FLORESVILLE – JOURDANTON-PLEASANTON

Then go up:

IH 35 south

LYTLE-DEVINE-PEARSALL-DILLEY

IH 35 north

SCHERTZ-CAYON LAKE-WIIMBERLY-BUDA-LOCKHART

IH 10 East

LULING-GONZALES-FLOTNIA-SCHULENBURG

IH 10 west

BOERNE-COMFORT

Up Hwy 90

CASTROVILLE-SABINAL-ULVALDE

Hwy 281 north

BULVERDE-BLANCO-JOHNSON CITY

Hwy 87

LA VERNIA-NIXON-STOCKDALE

Hwy 181

FLORESVILLE-FALL CITY

Hwy 16

POTEET-JOURDONTON-PLEASANTON

THIS IS JUST TO NAME A FEW

Every Preacher we talk to love the idea of starting churches

But we want to go where God wants the churches started

God’s direction

Our goal is to see several independent, fundamental, Baptist churches started. We are not ashamed of our Baptist heritage

We plan to go door to door & Build a Church for God’s Glory

Each Church God allows us to start will be called

Bethel Baptist Church

MEANS (THE HOUSE OF GOD) WILL BE HIS HOUSE

Goal is to get started & self supporting turn over to a Pastor

Go to the next town and do it again
