“Cell Life”

Sonlife Community Church is a “Cell Based” Church … just like a “physical cell” is the smallest complete unit of the human body so a “Sonlife Cell” is the smallest complete unit of Sonlife Community Church.

It’s in the “cell” that some of the most essential activities of spiritual life occur… here is where most of the “one anothering” talked about in the scriptures takes place – “love one another, encourage one another, pray for one another, nurture one another, confess your sins one to another” etc.

It’s impossible to know or understand the full measure of “Living” until you are involved in a vital Cell… in the cell meeting application is made of the Pastor’s message of the previous Sunday, in the cell meeting needs are freely shared and shouldered, prayer is offered and encouragement given.

In the cell meeting, an affirming sense of family is generated and our definition of Christian Living (“Following Christ in fellowship with your peers”) is fleshed out.

Cell group Leaders are designated “Shepherds of the flock” and are selected and instructed by Pastor Mark for their ministry. They are enthusiastically committed to the ministry of Sonlife Community Church and are “examples to the believer in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12)

Our first response to almost any need that a believer might be struggling with is “Get ’em in a group.” Place them in contact with the person of Christ as “fleshed out” in those who call themselves by His Name and are indwelt by His Holy Spirit – let Jesus touch them through His People and see if that doesn’t restore hope and bring healing. Generally it does!

As a Cell-Based Church Sonlife Community Church seeks to return to the simple structure of the First Century when the church met “in the temple and from house to house” (Acts 20:20).
Sonlife Community Church is finding that “simple structure” to be immensely rewarding and refreshingly uncomplicated.
