Only in America?

Sometimes we can think that the fully developed doctrines of Christianity and church worship only exist in America. While it is true that the United States has been greatly blessed by the Lord to have many solid, Bible-believing and-practicing Baptist churches, these kinds of churches exist around the globe.

 

Just as men can be trained as pastors in local churches in our country, they can be trained in other countries. And it is happening—India, the Philippines, Canada, Ireland, South Africa, Eswatini, Australia, and the list goes on. The key is not programs, but the Bible. It is not culture, but churches. It is not personality, but faithfulness. Where there is genuine conversion, there is a new man and the indwelling Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God works to exalt Jesus Christ and to sanctify every believer, regardless of the country. You see, God wants worship everywhere—in all the world.

 

There will be men who meet the qualifications to be a pastor, and they can be trained, and trained well. Newly organized churches in other countries have Great Commission responsibilities, just as churches in America have. As the next generation builds upon the previous generation’s example, over time, the result is greater development. What joy it is to know that the Lord’s work abounds around the world!
