The life and growth of the church is also within the home cells and the cells multiplying. A home cell is a group that meets to discuss topics as guided by the church as well. Just as a human body consists of cells, a church should consist of home cells. As families are the basic building blocks of any community so the home cells are building blocks on which the whole Church grows. The life, growth and support of the Church take place in the home cells.
It has a Biblical Foundation. Churches were started out of houses. The New Testament uses the term ‘church’ for a gathering of Christians.
- Romans 16:5 says, “Likewise greet the church that is in their house.”
- Colossians 4:15 says, “Salute the brethren which are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the church which is in his house.”
- 1 Corinthians 16:19 says, “The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.”
