Urban Church Planting

Today, 54 per cent of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 66 per cent by 2050. India's population in towns and cities is expected to reach 600 million by 2031, according to a 2014 UN-backed report. As urban populations continue to grow, rural populations are expected to decrease. This means that we need more people planting churches, winning souls and making disciples in urban centers. We need people who understand needs of today's urban centers and who know how to minister in an urban context. Christian professionals in the marketplace can become effective church planters, pastors, evangelists, teachers, prophets and engage in effective ministry for the Kingdom of God.

Drawing lessons from APC's own journey, coupled with insights from global leaders, this weekend school will equip you to make a difference for God's Kingdom in today's cities. This weekend school will show you how to use spiritual and practical strategies, supernatural ministry and contemporary methods for urban missions and church planting.

Content for this school is regularly updated. So, even if you have attended this weekend school previously, you are welcome to attend again, to learn fresh insights and be equipped for further ministry.

Weekend Schools are open to believers from all Christian churches in Bangalore and elsewhere.
We encourage believers to be equipped and serve faithfully in their local church where God has placed them.
Hosted by All Peoples Church in Bangalore.

Other Information:
At All Peoples Church in Bangalore we proclaim the full Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ bringing salvation, new life in Christ and wholeness to the total person (Romans 15:18-21,29). We believe we must be faithful and regular in the assembly of God, the gathering of the brethren, the local church according to Hebrews 10:25. As a Bible believing community, we engage in Spirit filled worship. We sing both contemporary songs and the great hymns of the Christian faith and tradition as in the Anglican (CSI, CNI) and Evangelical (Methodist, Baptist, etc,) churches. We partake in the Lord’s table, the Holy Communion each month. We practice water baptism by immersion, as was initially introduced by John the Baptist (Matthew 3:6) and given to the Church by the Lord Jesus in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). Water baptism services are held typically every alternate month. We also believe in the Pentecostal outpouring of the Holy Spirit as a present-day experience available for all believers (Acts 1:8, Acts 2:1-4,17-18,38-39). We regularly pray for believers to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit with expression in tongues and other gifts of the Holy Spirit. We believe in the apostolic and prophetic mandate to equip believers for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12), with the power of the Holy Spirit through the ‘charismata’ (charismatic expressions), the gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:7-11), for supernatural healing, deliverance, and miracles. We believe every believer is a minister in the Body of Christ, with a God-given role and function. Hence, we encourage all believers to actively volunteer and serve God in the local church community and beyond. Together we pursue God, to be stronger, deeper, and higher in knowing Him, and to reach further for His Kingdom and for His glory alone. We emphasize expressing our unity and fellowship in the Spirit in practical ways. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1).

All Peoples Church in Bangalore is a Spirit filled, Word based, Bible-believing fellowship of believers in Jesus Christ desiring more of His presence and supernatural power bringing transformation, healing, miracles, and deliverance. We preach the full Gospel, equip believers to live out our new life in Christ, and serve in strengthening unity across all Christian churches: Anglican, Apostolic, Assembly of God (AG), Baptist, Brethren, Charismatic, CSI, CNI, Evangelical, Full Gospel, Independent, Lutheran, Methodist, Non-denominational, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Prophetic, Revival, and other churches in Bangalore.
