Boiler Plate Language

  • Acts 29 is a global network for churches serious about church planting. There’s an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” The Acts 29 global community knows we can best bring the gospel to the ends of the earth when we do it in partnership with churches who share our passion for making disciples of all nations. Our efforts are multiplied and our God is glorified when we work together to advance his kingdom on earth. 
  • We’re made up of nearly 700 member churches (and counting!) in more than 50 countries. On any given Sunday, our members are worshiping in nearly 30 languages! 
  • We recruit, train, assess, and holistically support churches, church leaders, and church planters to plant healthy, multiplying churches. We partner with believers around the world to plant churches in all contexts—suburban, urban, rural, and everything in-between—and in any place where Jesus is neither named nor known.
  • We believe the church is God’s primary mission strategy on earth. Therefore, being faithful to the Great Commission’s call to make disciples means being passionate about church planting.
  • Local churches stand as a trusted presence in a community, offering hope and help amid trials and tragedies, proclaiming Christ and seeing lives transformed by his gospel and for his glory. As we plant more healthy, multiplying churches, we advance Christ’s kingdom on earth. This is the beauty of church planting.
