Sequential Steps For Precipitating A Mass Movement

Sequential Steps For Precipitating A Mass Movement

Adapted from Victor Choudhrie, Fifty Days of Harvest 2010

  1. Repent for the remission of sins. Acts 2:38, 39; 17:30; Luke 24:47
  2. Be baptized and become a baptizer. Matthew 28:19
  3. Receive the empowerment of the Holy Spirit for you and your household. Acts 2:39; 1:8
  4. In the New Testament, repentance, baptism and empowerment happened simultaneously and without delay. Baptism cannot be earned; it is a free gift of God.
  5. Apostolic teaching (Global Mission: Go and make disciples of all nations). Acts 2:42
  6. Fellowship. Church is a fellowship of Royal priests. Hebrew 10:25;
  7. Breaking bread (Love feast). Luke 10:5-8; Acts 20:7; Revelation 3:20
  8. Demolish strongholds through spiritual warfare, prayer walking and intercessory prayers for the nations. 1John 3:8; Matthew 12:29; 16:19; 2Timothy 2:8; 1 Timothy 2:1-4
  9. Unity “of one accord” will bring fear of the Lord on the people Acts 2:43
  10. Preach through signs, wonders and miracles. Luke 10:9; Acts 2:22; Romans 15:19
  11. Share material blessing with the needy. Acts 2:44, 45; 4:34-37; John 13:34, 35
  12. Going out two by two to look for the lost sheep. Acts 2:46; Luke 10:1, 2
  13. Finding “persons of peace,” breaking bread and sharing the whole counsel of God from house to house. Luke 10:5-9; Acts 2:46; 20:27
  14. The Lord was adding new believers to the church daily. Acts 2:47; Hebrew 3:13
  15. Multiply disciples who make fruitful disciples by teaching foundational teachings. Acts 6:1; John 15:8, 16; Hebrew 6:1-3, 7
  16. Entry of priests (big fish) into the Kingdom will make the growth exponential. Acts 6:7; John 21:11
  17. Cultural contextualization will result in qualitative and quantitative growth and rapid multiplication. Acts 16:1-5; 17:23, 28; 18:18
  18. Appoint elders who show integrity, are good managers of households, are given to hospitality, and can teach doctrine with competence to refute those of other faiths who contradict. Titus 1:5-9; Acts 14:23
  19. Teach them proper use of instruments of dynamic worship (Genesis 22:5-7):
    1. Scripture, the double-edged sword (Acts 14:16, 17; 15:14)
    2. The power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11)
    3. Serving one another in selfless love. The lost sheep that the Good Shepherd found is a living sacrifice (John 10:16; Romans 15:16; 2Peter 2:5, 6).
  20. Mentor, mobilize and monitor multiple generations of disciples for a mass movement. 2Timothy 2:2; Acts 14:26, 27
