“We don’t need another church in Fleming Island.”
This is the response I often hear when someone asks about the new campus we are planting in Fleming Island. In their defense, they are right. We don’t need another church in Fleming Island. But we do need new disciples of Jesus Christ and the best way to make new disciples is to start new churches.
- A new church gains 60-80% of its membership from new conversions
- A new church baptizes 1 person for every 13 members (existing churches are 1:52)
- A new church will bring six to eight times more new people into the life of the body of Christ than an older congregation of the same size
“The vigorous, continual planting of new congregations is the single most crucial strategy for the numerical growth of the body of Christ.”
– Tim Keller, Why Plant Churches
Under the leadership of Pastor David Tarkington, the firstFAMILY network of campuses is embarking on another campus plant. This time, we’re planting right in the heart of the fast-growing Fleming Island area of Northeast Florida.
So if you are not already connected to a gospel-preaching church, then please consider joining us as we embark on this exciting journey. See you at islandCHURCH in Fall 2017!
