- - Church-planting:
A primary reason why church-plants do not succeed is because God's people and/or God's servants fail or downright refuse to make the sacrifices that are necessary for the church-plant to sufficiently develop, progress, and come to viability and self-sustaining.  Apparently, they fail to realize and/or accept the importance that church-planting plays in God's program to build His kingdom.

To substantiate these assertions from the Scriptures, and in brief:
- - - -
since the time of Jesus Christ on this earth, the church is the main element in God's program (Matthew 16:18);
- - - - through the church, the gospel is preached to the world (Ephesians 3:4-10);
- - - - during the early time of the Apostle Paul's ministry to share the gospel with the Gentiles and plant churches among them, the Philippian church was the only church who had enough concern for him and his ministry work to therein send support to him, and repeatedly
(Philippians 4:10 with verses 4:15-16 and verse 1:5).
