What is the main objective of cell ministry? We know that the goal of the Christian life is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever. But does God have a particular purpose for the cell-based church? I've come to the conclusion that the primary goal of cell ministry is to make disciples who make disciples. Christ commanded his disciples to reproduce themselves (Matthew 28:18-20). But how were they supposed to do that? This book answers that question. Most discipleship books assume that discipleship is an individualistic endeavor. And yes, there are important individual spiritual disciplines (e.g., personal devotions, etc.). Yet in Matthew 28, Jesus was talking to a group of disciples. He wanted them to follow his example by making disciples in a group. The early church continued Christ's pattern by making disciples through the house churches that celebrated together in public worship. In this book, I explain how the cell church makes disciples. In the cell, a potential disciple is transformed through community, priesthood of all believers, group evangelism, and team multiplication. The cell system ensures each leader has a coach and that training happens. Then the cells gather together to worship and grow through the teaching of God's Word. The goal of the two-wing church is to make disciples who make disciples. This book will help you understand why and how to become a cell-based church. Whether you’re planting a cell church or transitioning from a traditional church, this book will help you get there.
