CHURCH PLANTS AND AFFILIATIONS
In Matthew 28 Jesus gave his disciples the great commission: Go tell everyone what I’ve done. The normal pattern of the early church was to plant churches. That is how they advanced the gospel. Paul said in Ephesians 3 that it was through the local church that God would make the gospel known to the world. The local church is God’s plan A, there is no plan B. We want to partner with others to plant churches all over the world as we seek to spread the fame of Jesus in Fayetteville, North Carolina, near other military bases, and to the ends of the earth. At least 10% of our budget goes to the planting of new churches, and our staff also uses a portion of their time to bless, develop and resource other church planters. We plant churches at Veritas. You know what’s cool about that? If you go through partnership and become a part of the family at Veritas Church, that means you plant churches!
Below you can find a list of the church planting networks we are a part of and the church plants we are currently partnering with.
