There is no manual for church planting that gives perfect step-by-step instructions, nor is there a photo to look at in advance that will show the exact result that your hard work will yield. Church planting requires that one look at the seed and believe in its potential, trusting God for what isn’t seen and believing in what could be.
Christo and Sarah Emmanuel began a church in their home in Chennai, India, 10 years ago. Small at first, this church plant grew into something beyond expectation and now reaches thousands of people—children, youth and adults—through its outreach and their presence in the community. Living God Church has seen families and communities positively changed by the power of the gospel.
