"We make it our goal to please him, whether we are here in the body or away from it"
- 2 Corinthians 5:9
We live in exciting times!
There is no other moment in history in which I’d want to live. As the world’s fears increase, I believe that spiritual revival is approaching. In fact, it may already be here. God is pouring out his Spirit to heal, comfort, deliver and restore, and it is amazing to see.
But we need a new container to capture the new wine that God is pouring out.
The old wine of “doing church” will no longer do. Church has become synonymous with a religious service or building. Ekklesia is different. An ekklesia is a Spirit-filled community that walks in the way of Jesus together. An ekklesia is a community where Jesus is present, believers are empowered by the Spirit, and God’s good news is proclaimed to the poor. Jesus said, “I will build my ekklesia and the gates of Hades will not stand against it (Mt 16:18).”
Jesus’ ekklesia is God’s instrument for worldwide transformation. I believe that the next ten years will see an explosion of new expressions of community ready for the global harvest. I think that these ekklesias will make a massive impact on some of our biggest social problems, like extreme poverty, racial division, homelessness, and the foster care system.
If you are looking for something different from the event-driven, business approach to church, then consider community in an ekklesia. An ekklesia is Spirit led, Scripture fed, and Presence focused. Visit our Monthly Celebration or even one of our house churches. If you are ready to take the next step, then contact us on our contact page. We’d love to see you get connected in community.
Blessings to you,
