The following churches have committed to work together for the full evangelization of the greater Houston region. These churches are committed to not only planting new churches but partnering together to make sure every man, woman, and child has a repeated opportunity to both hear and see the gospel.
Partnering with HCPN
Is your church interested in partnering with HCPN? The following are commitments that churches connected to HCPN are making:
Commitment to Christ
We understand the centrality of Jesus in transforming both a life and a community. The story of the Church is the story of a people who have been transformed by Jesus and who, then, transformed the world. Both the power of our witness and the effectiveness of our ministry are driven by the depth to which we have been transformed by God. HCPN is centered on the good news of Jesus Christ and commit to making Him known throughout our city.
Commitment to Church Planting
We understand that as the mission of God expands, and the gospel impacts people, new churches will need to be planted. In a city diverse as Houston, it will take hundreds of churches committed to starting different models of churches, so that our city is saturated with gospel proclaiming and gospel demonstrating churches.
Commitment to Collaboration
We understand that when God looks down from Heaven, he does not see many different churches throughout a city, but one Church, gathering in many locations. In John 17, Jesus spoke of a spiritual as well as a missional unity that was essential to the witness of the Church in any generation. In Houston, a city that has land for city growth, the work of the gospel is getting spread out over almost 10,000 square miles, making it impossible for one church to impact the city alone. Collaboration isn’t a nicety, it’s a necessity.
Commitment to our City
We understand the geographic and generational nature of the great commission. We have learned that this commission is more than an aspirational calling; it is an actual objective. In every time and location, the Church has the responsibility to saturate their area with the Gospel. While no one church, no matter how large or influential, can ever hope to accomplish this on their own, the Church can. Churches commit to reaching the city and specifically the part of the city in which they are located.
If you are interested in becoming an HCPN partner church please contact us. Thanks for the consideration of partnering together to see greater Houston saturated with the gospel through the planting of new churches.
