2018 Church Planting Update

Louisiana Baptists have planted 22 Churches so far in 2018. 

  • 6 in North Louisiana, 16 in South Louisiana
  • 6 in New Orleans
  • 13 non-Anglo. 8 African-American, 3 Hispanic, 1 Asian, 1 Multi-Ethnic

Since 2010:

  • 234 Churches Planted
  • 56 in north Louisiana, 178 in south Louisiana
  • 61 in New Orleans
  • 128 non-Anglo. 70 African-American, 31 Hispanic, 10 Asian, 17 Other

Our goals have been to plant 300 churches by 2020; to plant more in south Louisiana where 70% of the population lives; at least 20% of plants in New Orleans where 20% of our population lives; and to plant more non-Anglo churches, increasing the diversity in Louisiana Baptist life.

Highlights:

  • Since 2010, Church Plants have reported 13,208 Professions of Faith and 3,536 Baptisms. Church Planting continues to be one of the best ways to evangelize communities. 
  • Since 2010, churches have been planted in 100 of Louisiana’s 304 cities and towns and 41 of Louisiana’s 64 Parishes.
  • Now, RePlanting is ramping up, with 25% of last years new works being replants and 40% this year.

66 churches away from our 2020 goal of 300. With each new church comes new brothers and sisters in Christ, new fronts on meeting real needs in communities, and more glory for our great God as the gospel bears its fruit across Louisiana.
