The materials provided on the Living Hope - Cell Church Tools website are written by Andy Laws and Howard Robinson. Based in the North West of England, we have been actively involved in researching and practicing Cell Church principles since 2000. Additionally, the training videos have been produced by Paul Davidson and Andy Powell. It is our hope that the materials offered will be of use and benefit to others in the Body of Christ, especially those who wish to develop the church through cell groups.
We passionately believe that the local church is the hope of the world. God’s rescue plan for mankind - his amazing grace given to us in our Lord Jesus Christ - offers real hope and help for all people. Throughout history God has brought this life-transforming gospel into the lives of ordinary people through his church. The church is a key link between heaven and earth.
We believe that the intentional and systematic approach to ministry that is central to Cell Church is a critical key to reaching, winning and keeping many more people in our generation. God’s plan for the lost is that they should be saved. And for the saved, his plan is to transform us so that the life he originally meant for us is increasingly restored, and our lives take on eternal significance as we become labourers with him in his eternal purpose.
By providing small groups linked by a common purpose and mission, the church can create a context for ordinary believers to flourish and grow. They can share their lives together, strengthen one another in times of need, overcome weaknesses and sins, and learn to invest their spiritual lives in others. Thus the church can grow. And God’s kingdom can more fully come upon the earth.
We hope you will understand something of the passion that drives us. Our hope is that, through this website, we can contribute something towards this great, global movement of the Spirit of God referred to as “Cell Church”. In our day, God is using small groups to help many people experience for themselves the new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead...
