This category is for Christian house churches (also known as home church, house assembly, simple church, and organic church), as well as ministries that plant and support the Christian house church movement.
House church is not to be confused with cell church. Cell churches should not be submitted to this category. Cell church tends to be a number of small groups that often meet in homes, but are dependent upon a "mother" church that acts as overseer. Each group ministers through channels of formal authority from the parent church, often studying the same material and ministry pattern as seen in the parent church.
House churches are small assemblies of Christian believers which, rather than meeting in larger traditional church buildings, assemble together in someone's home. A house church is also commonly known by the terms home church, house assembly, home assembly, organic church or simple church.
