does the rotor turn when you crank the engine over?
if not may be a timing belt problem
possible bad igniter causing it not to fire.
maybe someone else will post more suggestions but you may want to post the engine size.

Coil wire and/or plug wires?

Check this

A easy check is remove the cap were you put the oil in you should be able to see a camshaft.Have a friend turn over engine,Does it move?If not your timing belt is toast.The good part is if it is toast Toyota engines are not self destucting like Honda.also if you do find the belt bad replace water pump at same time.
Toyotaman might have some other possible causes.

Does the starter turn but not the engine making it look like no spark.
I came across that quite often when I was a breakdown mechanic in England.
