Christos Ekklesia

Christos EkklesiaThe first time the word “ekklesia” is used in scripture it is used by Jesus.  This Greek word, “ekklesia,” means “a group of people gathered or assembled for a specific purpose.”  This was the word Jesus chose to describe what His people would be called.  We would be called Ekklesia, translation: Church.  Not a building of mortar, wood, or block, but a gathering of people, assembled, called out for a specific purpose.  Furthermore, Jesus makes it clear that it is His Church.  In this series we are looking at four components of Christ’s Church:  People Committed, People Equipped, People Together, and People Empowered.
