On a day when many hide behind masks and costumes, a man famously and courageously took a public stand. On October 31st, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle church. His conscience did not allow him to continue to hide behind the accepted religion of the day but forced him to boldly declare what he believed. His belief was that Salvation was attained by faith alone, and that the Word of God was superior to tradition. Martin Luther stood while many others hid.
Though I am an ardent Baptist that proclaims our amazing Baptist heritage, I can appreciate and be challenged by the bold stances that good men have taken throughout history. In our day that calls for believers to stand boldly, are we willing to live counterculture to our world around us? Will we hide behind the proverbial masks that are so common on this day, or will we stand? Our Baptist forefathers stood! Martin Luther stood! Let us stand by proclaiming to our world that it is Christ alone that can save, and that the Word of God alone is truth.
Timothy Ministries uses a Pauline style of church planting to be able to accomplish multiple church plants in a short, yet efficient, amount of time.
1) To plant seven churches in twelve years.
2) To train men to take over and pastor the church plant to maturity.
3) To plant churches with a heart to plant churches.
4) To establish more church planters... multiplying church plants.
