THE CAUSE

"Is there not a cause?"

I Sam. 17:29

Our Lord Jesus Christ has caused us to
realize that there are more missionaries
traveling around, needing financial help
than there are churches with the money to
help.   At any one time, there are [many Baptist]
missionaries on deputation and furlough,
seeking support!

New churches must be started if mis-
sionaries are going to be sent to their fields
sufficiently supported.

Someone must devote his time to rectify
this problem.   We have accepted the
challenge - we will go!

Many churches are not concerned about
starting church in America.   We hope to
cause them to become concerned.

 

 

Note: 2,765,000 people stop attending
church every year in North America.

THE CAUSE: PROMOTED

Young Men:

   We challenge young men to surrender
their lives to preach, pastor and start N.T.
Baptist Churches in the USA.

Missionaries:

   The best recommendation for approval
as a missionary is to be able to say, "I started
a church in the USA and it is alive and
well today."
  If you can do it here, you pro-
bably can do it there.

Mature Men:

   We desire to see pastors who have much
experience, after years of ministry, leave
their comfortable nests and begin new chur-
ches.   These men usually need less finan-
cial support than the young men who are
just establishing a home and have small
children; plus, they know HOW - they've
learned valuable lessons along the way.

Senior Saints:

A. To become a part of the perpetual
Loan Fund.   A gift of $250, $500 or
$1000 will strengthen this fund.   We
provide 3% loans to new churches to
build their first structures.

THE CAUSE: PROMOTED
(Continued)
All loans are to be repaid to Loan Fund
within 5 years.   The money will con-
stantly be recycled to other new chur-
ches.   This money will work till Jesus
comes.

B. To become a part of a working team
that physically builds church buildings
on a volunteer basis.

Churches:

   We encourage churches to keep alive the
message of planting churches in the USA
by all means possible: bulletin boards,
bulletin inserts, continually keep before the
congregation the responsibility of churches
starting churches, preach messages often,
pleading with young men and women to
surrender their lives to be involved in
beginning N.T. churches here at home.

Note: There are 27,000,000 cultists in the
USA.

THE CAUSE: PROVEN

Already, N.T. Church Planting USA has
been involved, physically building
churches:

BRB, K.C., MO
   Pastor D. S.
NB, Norfolk, NE
   Pastor T. F.
Fargo Baptist Church, Fargo, ND
   Pastor Tony Scheving

FBC, Montana City,
   MT, Pastor D. K.

Teams have been organized from churches
all over the USA to assist in this great
money-saving ministry.   Thousands of
dollars have been saved for these new chur-
ches.   Instead of the banks getting the
money, we have been able to keep God's
money working in God's work.

Through our Loan Fund, we have assisted
2 churches in securing their first buildings:

CBC, Chandler, AZ
   Pastor T. A./D. C.
Pond Hill Baptist Church,
   North Haven, CT
   Pastor John Achtung

As the fund grows, other requests can be
granted.

Note: "The single most effective evangelistic
methology under heaven is planting new
churches."

                                           Peter W.

THE CAUSE: PASSED ON

Because the need is so great, we cannot
afford to relax our efforts.   Younger men are
needed now to consider taking over some-
day when the founders of N.T. Church
Planting USA can no longer keep up the
pace.   We are able to serve now because of
our retirement money and the assistance of
a few churches and individuals who have
caught the vision of what we endeavor-
ing to accomplish.

PLEASE PRAY:
    For our financial support.
    For our physical strength.
    For an overall church involvement in
    starting new churches in the USA.

Note: "If American Christians become so
preoccupied with the regions beyond that
they continue to neglect the foundation at
home, the entire missionary enterprise will
collapse."

Note: There are 181,000,0000 needing the
gospel in the USA!
