Were there really church planting movements in Acts? This is a question that many have asked. The answer is complex. While on the one hand we most definitely see Christianity as a movement, on the other hand we see that movement comprised of Christ-followers rather than “churches.” Granted, the early followers of Christ gathered together in communities that were called churches. However, these early followers were mostly interested in seeing more people follow Christ which naturally resulted in more communities of people who congregated together for the purpose of worshipping, reading Scripture, fellowship, prayer, and mission.
