Three Convictions of Church PlantingLINC-UP's Goal for Every Church Plant
When God establishes a new church among an unreached people group, it should be a native church led by native pastors and leaders. Foreign missionaries attempt to work themselves out of a job by being replaced with equipped national leaders. Nationals can naturally reach their own people more effectively than an outsider. The goal of every team, project, initiative, and missionary should be to see an indigenous church planting movement begin among the host culture.
