WHAT IS A CELL-BASED CHURCH?
Today there are a lot of church models to choose from. All these models can be put in two main movements: “the program-based movement” and the “cell-based movement.” In a cell-based church the emphasis is on equipping people to do the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12).
A home-cell is a group of 3 to 15 people who gather from house to house on a regular basis. The focus of the members of a home-cell is to edify (build-up) and equip one another, to care for each other but also to evangelise their specific community (relatives, friends, colleagues and neighbours) through the good news of Jesus Christ.

Prayer plays a vital part of home-cell ministry. Praying home-cells are powerful home-cells. Without an active prayer life, the home-cell cannot make an impact in their community. Prayer activities include the following:
Praying daily for leadership
Praying daily for members
Praying for unsaved friends, relatives and others
Praying for specific needs
Acts 6:4 “and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.”
