Christians have been starting new churches since the advent of the Holy Spirit in the first century. These days it's often referred to as church planting. The Gospel is procalimed, a community of believers gather, and together they become an expression of the Body of Christ. At FECA we encourage our member churches to be working towards planting new churches. As the Australian population continues to grow at a rapid rate, more churches are required to reach people with the Good News of Jesus.
