Join the Seed Group

Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit” (John 12:24). He was speaking of his own ministry as the One sent to die for the sins of the world, but he was also describing the path of true fruitfulness for all His people.

We don’t do great things for God by exalting ourselves, by insisting on our own way. We do great things by dying to ourselves and trusting in our Lord. In the words of John the Baptist, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30).

We want you to join us as King Jesus builds a new church in the Kannapolis community. We are excited to be a light in the darkness; to call the lost, love God’s people, and glorify our King. And the way we’re going to do it is by falling into the earth and dying.

Worshiping at a new church means starting out with a small group. We’ll be gathering in someone’s home, or some little room somewhere. As the church grows, you’ll have preferences about our next locations, and our new programs, and our unfolding plans; and those preferences won’t all come true. (Of course, nobody else’s will either.) As we advance the kingdom of heaven in Kannapolis, we can expect spiritual opposition and struggle. It won’t be easy.

But it will be glorious. We will see our Savior build his church, win lost souls, restore broken people, care for his children, and tear down every stronghold raised against us. He will increase, we will decrease, and we’ll be glad to do it, as we rest in the care of our heavenly Father and see Him at work.

If you’re up for that, we hope you’ll join us. Come fall into the ground and die with us, and we’ll find out together what the Lord will grow in this field.
