A Place for Relational Connectedness
Many mistake the Church as a building made up of stone and mortar. God’s Word indicates that WE are the “living bricks” or “livingstones” that make up the Church (1 Pet. 2:1-12). The goal is not just to heap a pile of bricks together and expect it to become a beautiful structure. Every piece is laid layer-upon-layer, level-upon-level with a deliberate and defined purpose. This is a beautiful picture of the Body of Christ, all shaped and gifted with different personalities and talents, co-dependent one on another, in a web of relationships.
Foundational Values (ED2)
a) Edification & Establishing Relationships
The cell structure is the most effective way to provide quality pastoral care where the individual needs of believers as well as the diverse needs of the Body are met as a whole. In the same manner where our natural, biological family provides us with care, accountability and love, the cell community enables members to feel responsible for and to each other. Significant relationships occur best in the context of a cell group.
b) Deliverance: Effective Ministry
A cell community is built on the biblical principle that all believers are ministers and that the work of the ministry should be performed by every Christian, and not just the pastor or leader. It is here where spiritual gifts are best discovered, developed and encouraged in a small group context.
c) Discipleship: Expansion of Leadership Base
The cell provides a platform for servant-hood qualities and attitudes to be developed and proven. It is the best place to identify and develop leaders.
A cell does not exist for itself. It exists to multiply. A cell that ceases to grow ceases to function. The cell is the vehicle for body evangelism and the incorporation of new christians into the Body. It provides fellowship, follow-up and nuture of new christians.
