What does "ekklesia" mean?
Our English word "church" is the translation of the Greek word "ekklesia." Ekklesia means “ones who are called out.” This is what the church is -- people who have been called out of this world to be God's own special people.
The church is not an institution created by humans, but a worldwide fellowship of people who have a common faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. When a person is saved, that person is added to the church, and should then connect with a local congregation of Christians to carry out God's work, worship, and witness!
We’re so thankful that you’re taking time to learn more about this ekklesia. Our goal here is to be a Biblically-functioning community of Christians who love people like Jesus, lead people to Jesus, and launch people for Jesus in Kingdom service to change this world!
