“The vigorous, continual planting of new congregations is the single most crucial strategy for 1) the numerical growth of the Body of Christ in any city, and 2) the continual corporate renewal and revival of the existing churches in a city. Nothing else—not crusades, outreach programs, para-church ministries, growing mega-churches, congregational consulting, nor church renewal processes—will have the consistent impact of dynamic, extensive church planting. This is an eyebrow raising statement. But to those who have done any study at all, it is not even controversial.” -- Dr. Tim Keller.
Over the years, we have seen this truth played out before our eyes as countless people have placed their faith in Christ and countless more have grown in their faith through the ministry of Living Water. Due to this experience, the overwhelming evidence of 2,000 years of church planting, and most importantly the call of the New Testament to plant churches, Living Water chooses to be a church planting church – not just in the Greater Harrisburg area, but throughout the world.
We are a vibrant, thriving church because eight couples, several other churches, and new friends were willing to invest their time and resources to help start a Multi-Ethnic, Gospel-Centered, Missional, Christian church in the Harrisburg area. As such, we are committed to doing the same for others.
The following are church plants in which Living Water has had the great privilege of investing time and resources to help them become a reality.
