Coral Springs/Parkland Area
We believe that God’s kingdom is a diverse one in which people from every tribe, tongue, and nation will be represented in eternity. We believe that many churches in highly populated areas are necessary to invite everyone into a relationship with Jesus Christ. Therefore, we want to come alongside the other faithful congregations of Coral Springs and Parkland and continue to draw people to Jesus in the way that God has uniquely gifted us. With a population of 130,046 Coral Springs is the 5th largest city in Broward County as of 2016. Combine that with the 30,000+ residents of Parkland and you’re looking at a big and growing area in Broward County that needs the gospel just as much as anywhere else.
Long after the national media has forgotten about the great evil that happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018, there will continue to be families in need of the hope of the gospel. This is our home. This is one of many reasons why we believe our community needs another church. Therefore, we are following God’s call to serve this city.
In Matthew 16, Jesus told Peter and the rest of the disciples "I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Jesus took twelve men, and just before ascending into heaven he commissioned them to be his witnesses in their city, their region, their country, and around the world. We believe that the same Holy Spirit that empowered the disciples for their church planting mission (Acts 1:8) is the Spirit who empowers his church now. God calls every Christian everywhere to make disciples of all nations and we believe that church planting is the best way to do that.
Jesus also told his disciples "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest" (Luke 10:2). We believe that Coral Springs/Parkland is full of people who God wants to call to himself. We simply need more laborers to get the job done. What better way to do this than to plant a new church!
