INFANTALISM. You may have never heard of this before but it’s a danger for many Christians – Here’s what it is
David Garrison describes church planting movements (CPMs) as “a rapid multiplication of indigenous churches planting churches that sweeps through a people group or population segment.”
When disciplemaking stops, new churches stop being birthed. Jesus told His disciples to make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). This required going, baptizing, and teaching to obey. When we fail to teach obedience to Christ’s commands, disciplemaking stops. When disciplemaking stops, church multiplication stops.
Jesus told His disciples to make disciples who make disciples who make disciples who make disciples… (Matt 28:19-20). I am a disciple of Jesus today because of Christians who obeyed Jesus’ command. There would be more Christians and more churches if more Christians obeyed Jesus.
