INTRODUCTION

Growth in the human body starts with one cell of life. That cell multiplies over and over again until a human baby is formed. After birth, the process continues in the child. Human cells continue to multiply and growth occurs. The same is true in the spiritual world. Each person who has experienced new life in Jesus is similar to a living cell in the human body. Each believer must reproduce spiritually. The Gospel is spread as believers continue to multiply in this way.

This chapter reveals your personal responsibility in this spiritual process. You will learn of the plan of God for spiritual multiplication which makes “1 plus 1” more than two.
