What ARE Cell Groups?

Cell Groups are a collection of individuals who meet weekly, and together they do various activities… all striving for spiritual growth and development  throughout specific areas of the city. The Cell Groups are strategically placed so as to cover a larger area of the city where Christ is needed. The Cell Groups meet in participants’ homes within the area and minister according to the needs of the members of the group and their neighbors.

The Vision of our Cell Groups is to have a congregation of people seeking God’s own heart, being spiritually strengthened, and bearing fruit worthy of the Kingdom of God. We are pursuing this vision following Ephesians 4:13, “Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”

The Mission of our Cell Groups is to be an example to the church in love, speech, conversation, faith, and purity. (1 Timothy 4:12) In this way, we hope to achieve God’s eternal purpose: the restoration of all things…  starting with our lives, our families, our community, and our country. God’s Word regarding the high priests in the book of Hebrews provides a hope that this can be achieved; “He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness. This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people.” (Hebrews 5:2-3)

The Goal of our Cell Groups is that 100% of the Christian Cultural Center in Guatemala will have spiritual covering, with a clear understanding of God’s purpose for their children. Romans 8:19-21 says that “The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice but by the will of the one subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.
