Lagos is a “city” precisely because it is a concentration of a large number of people, many of whom have yet to hear of God’s love for them. Planting churches in cities like Lagos enables more and more people to encounter and respond to the love of God. Many hear and read the word of God for the first time in church plants. Many learn for the first time that Christ is not merely a religious figure, but God himself who gave up everything to meet their deepest need.
This is why I love the mission of the church and church planting.
