Strong churches know that the local church is God’s means for bringing gospel saturation to the places God sends us (Eph 1:22-23; Col 1:27). They are compelled by Jesus’ comprehensive vision (i.e. every man, woman, and child) until we see the knowledge of the glory of God cover the earth as the waters cover the sea (Hab 2:14). They desire to actively express the answer to Jesus’ high priestly prayer for unity in the church (John 17:20-23). They know that owning the lostness of their city and area will never be accomplished by a single church.
