Jesus tells us “…Whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing…” John 14-12 (NIV). The mission of this website is to provide Christian believers with materials to support them in Doing What Jesus Wants Done. It is not affiliated with any denomination or local congregation. It is owned and managed by a small group of Christians with the same core beliefs.
Our core beliefs are:
- God created everything – including us. Genesis 1:1, 27
- God loves us so dearly that he sent Jesus to die on the cross for us. John 3:16
- God wants us to love him and to love others and to help those in need – as the Good Samaritan did. Luke 10:25-37
- Jesus sums up God’s guidance for living as given in the Old Testament as: “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Matt 7:12 (NIV)
- Loving others and thus helping the needy has both physical and spiritual aspects. Based on his last instructions for the apostles both at the Passover dinner and ascension. Jesus put great emphasis on the spiritual – as shown by his final instructions to the apostles before he ascended to heaven. More…
- Matthew 28:19–20 (NIV) “…Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…”
- Mark 16:15–16 (NIV) “He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned…’”
- Luke 24:47–49 (NIV) “…and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
- John 21:17 (NIV) “The third time he said to him, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, ‘Do you love me?’ He said, ‘Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Feed my sheep.’”
At the Passover dinner, Jesus repeatedly instructed the apostles that, in carrying out their mission, they must stay attached to God and that God was sending the Holy Spirit to lead them. And later, at His Ascension He told them not to begin their mission until the Holy Spirit arrived. More…
- John 14:15–17 (NIV) “If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth.”
- John 14:25, 26 (NIV) “All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
- John 15:1–5 (NIV) “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
- John 16:7 (NIV) “But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.”
- John 16:12–15 (NIV) “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
Thus, we have come to understand that to do what Jesus would do, we need to prayerfully ask for God’s leadership – and listen with our hearts.
The Scriptures are a guide to living as a Christian – studying them is valuable, but applying them to our lives is essential. Cells are about applying Scripture to your life through your own prayerful thoughts and through sharing thoughts with others. The primary mission of our original website was to provide cell lessons for this purpose, but believing that this concept would be equally valuable to Sunday school classes – we have adapted the lessons to a Sunday school format as well. And, we have added discussions on God’s leadership, a series of Children’s Sermons, and collections of Sermons and Spiritual Insights. And, we have expanded the materials on outreach.
