The Power of Agreement

Planting a church is a divine assignment which involves more than just what meets the eye. It is hard, but exciting and fulfilling. Planting a church itself demands for a heart that loves people. It also calls for a strong commitment to accomplishing the task it presents.

The purpose of planting a church is what shapes the mission of a church planter. This is what makes church planting interesting because how you begin is what determines the type of church that would be produced.

As a matter of fact, you and the inner circle must have a good understanding of what a healthy church is like. In short you should all have a strong commitment to the teachings of Christ. Apart from that, everyone should definitely have the basic understanding of what creates a growing church.

When planting a church, you must find at least two or three people who you can work with. These are the people who should be in what we call “the inner circle” and they should always pray and organize with you. The inner circle helps to bring in the presence of God. How does this happen? Well, the Bible tells us that where two or three are gathered together in his name, Jesus Christ himself is present.

When members of the inner circle meet in the name of Jesus, the presence of God is made available to them. The act of meeting together in the name of Jesus Christ makes the presence of God accessible. This presence is a fact because it is made possible by the Spirit of God.

We have to understand that people can be together, but that does not mean they are united. Unity is something that comes from the heart. When people are together and agree upon anything from their heart, they can accomplish a lot more. The power of agreement is much deeper and it establishes itself on covenants.

Our God is a God of covenants and our relationship with him is a covenant relationship. In a covenant, what is promised is meant to be done. Jesus is alive today and his promises are being fulfilled. This is the reason why the power of agreement is a powerful force when utilized in church planting. When we agree according to God’s will, we are not just agreeing with other believers, we are also agreeing with God himself.
