Our goal is to facilitate a church planting movement among Native people.
Please pray about the need to reach the unchurched and under-churched communities in our state. God may be calling you to be the next church planter. He may call your church to be a partner church. You will not be alone in this endeavor. Oklahoma Baptists, as well as other churches and associations, will partner with you. Oklahoma Baptists will provide training and start-up resources.
“One of our central tasks in the present generation is to be bold in our vision of replanting churches – helping existing churches to find new vision, new strategic focus, new passion for the gospel, new hunger for the preaching of the Word, new love for their communities, and new excitement about seeing people come to faith in Jesus.” A Guide to Church Revitalization R. Albert Mohler, Jr., Southern Seminary President
Courageous steps are required in effective church revitalization.
- The church must face reality and see things as they are, not as they wish they were or how they used to be.
- The church must adopt a “whatever it takes” attitude and be willing to radically pursue God’s plan for the church.
- The church must accept new leadership, new ministry paradigms and practices over their personal preferences.
