1. Growth in the early church was described as multiplying - Ac 6:7; 9:31; 12:24
2. Contrast 'spiritual multiplication' with 'spiritual addition'
a. Spiritual addition - involves leading people to Christ, but that is all
b. Spiritual multiplication - involves leading people to Christ, then developing them until they are leading others to Christ
3. 'Spiritual multiplication' involves four stages:
a. Evangelizing - teaching others the gospel of Christ - Mt 28:19
b. Follow-up - teaching them to observe all that Christ commanded - Mt 28:20
c. Reproducing - when they in turn begin to teach others - cf. 2Ti 2:2
d. Multiplying - what finally occurs when those taught in turn follow-up and make disciples who then teach others -
- Without 'follow-up', spiritual multiplication does not happen!
