Church Planting

Al Mohler applauds the increased excitement over church, but also warns that we must not neglect the need to revitalize existing congregations. His conclusion:
The energy and commitment evident in the church planting movement should encourage all who long to see a new wave of evangelism throughout North America. But this movement must be driven by a robust New Testament ecclesiology and must be undergirded by an eager embrace of the faith once for all delivered to the saints. This movement must complement -- not castigate -- existing churches. Each needs the other, and both can learn from each other.
