Church Planting Movements

Here is our definition of a Church Planting Movement:

When a group of new disciples begins to gather regularly and obey all the commands of Jesus a church comes into being. When the group begins to reach out to those in their relationship network (blood relation, clan, ethnic, tribe or otherwise) regularly seeking

those who are lost, a foundation is laid. When new disciples from these networks begin to meet as churches and in turn reach out to new networks, a momentum is begun.  When this process is happening in a number of networks and 3rd or 4th generation

churches are coming into being a CPM has started.

North India CPM

God is indeed working in a mighty way in North India, and APII has been blessed to join God where He is working. Since 1994, we have witnessed a Church Planting Movement (CPM) in this area of the world. Independent audits of the work in North India have estimated that there are over 15 million new Christ-followers in this area.

This exponential growth and abundance of God's out-pouring is a result of a winning strategy focused on leadership development, making disciples, and Church Planting.

Churches Planting Churches

This is the backbone behind successful Church Planting Movements. When churches begin planting more churches growth can happen exponentially and an entire population can be reached. Church planters are taught to continue development and encouragement of a church until a 4th Generation Church can be seen. This principle is found in 2 Tim 2:2 as Paul (1) tells Timothy (2) to teach faithful men (3) that will teach others (4) also. When 4th generation churches can be seen, it is strong evidence that a CPM is taking place and God is moving powerfully in a particular region. 

Jesus tells us in Luke 10:2 that "the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." Will you also join us in the harvest? Will you consider joining God where He is already working? Will you pray for more churches to be planted in North India? Will you consider being a financial partner of the church planting ministry? Give now.
