The Fellowship of the Hinge: Church Planting as Kingdom Building


This lecture invites you into what is called “the fellowship of the hinge.” What is this hinge? The fellowship of the hinge is joining up with the Lord Jesus in the work of church planting that He is doing in our countries. The fellowship of the hinge is a movement that brings lost people into the kingdom of God who start churches that start churches. Now, where do we find this hinge? We find the invitation to join Jesus in the fellowship of the hinge in Acts 1:1, “In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach . . ..” This is the hinge. In the Gospels Jesus began to do and to teach, and in the Acts of the Apostles Jesus continues to do what He began, but He does it through His servants. What He continued to do in the Acts, He continues to do today – through his servants and disciples, through us.
