Consider the following: “The primary mission of the church…is to proclaim the gospel of Christ and gather believers into local churches where they can be built up in the faith and made effective in service; thus new congregations are to be planted throughout the world.”
As we examine Paul's method of evangelism and church planting, this is exactly what he did. What he did in ten years following this model spread the gospel and planted churches from Jerusalem to Rome. We have a lot to learn from this example.
