How do You Start a Church?

God is the one who will make it clear that He wants to form a branch of His body within a community. Normally the missionary or pastor will see the need for a body within a certain community and seek to be used to fill it. There may be a small or large group of people already seeking to join in the work. Most often these are started by small Bible studies and evangelism outreaches within the targeted community. There are missionary organizations, such as the North American Mission Board, who are instrumental in supporting and helping to start new churches all the time. For more information, look here:
