Pride causes us to divide. It makes us place one preacher, one church, one brand above another. It keeps us from working together, because it makes us feel that we are either superior or inferior to others. The result: There are areas of our world that are in great spiritual and practical need, where people are dying in sin because Christians and Christian churches are so self-focused that they will not partner together for the advance of the gospel. Our own pride is the greatest hindrance to partnering in church planting.
Pastor Chris Woolley from Midrand Chapel in Midrand, South Africa talks about the greatest hindrance to partnering in church planting.
The conference also featured messages from Phil Hunt (Kitwe Church), Sammy Leballo (Moletsane Baptist Church), Mario Maneville (Reformed Faith Mission Community Church), Conrad Mbewe (Kabwata Baptist Church), and Tyrell Haag (Heritage Baptist Church).
