What is a Cell Ministry?
Risen Faith Fellowship is a Cell Church. A cell church is a non-traditional form of church life in which small groups of Christians (cells) meet in a special way in their homes to build each other up in Christ and to evangelize the unsaved. It is a church that defines its cells as the basic building blocks of church life.
The cell church is built on the principle that all Christians are ministers and that every Christian should perform the work of the ministry. According to Ephesians 4:11-16, God has provided apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers to prepare God's people for works of service. Such a church is not built around the assembling of all its members, but rather the clustering of believers in "basic Christian communities" or "cell groups".
Every believer is equipped to do the work of ministry through these cells. The cells may cluster for area "congregation" activities, also assembling regionally for "celebrations”. The life of the church is in its cells, not in the building. While it has weekly worship events, the focus is always kept on the Cell.
PHILISOPHY OF MINISTRY STATEMENT
Cell groups become the basic building blocks (or communities) for all church ministries. The church is formed from them and is the sum of them. Cell groups never grow larger than 15 people and multiply as they reach this figure. There are no other activities that exist in competition with the cell. Everything in the church is an extension of them and flows from their combined strength. Our philosophy of ministry is in accordance to Ephesians 4:11-16, which in essence, requires that all members or regular worshippers of Risen Faith Fellowship be part of a cell group so that they can be involved in the ministry of edification (inwards) and evangelism (outwards), i.e., works of ministry.
