"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 coming. In fact, I believe that it is already 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 of which God is pouring.
The old container of “church” will no longer do. Church has become something that you “attend” on Sunday. But ekklesia is something different. Ekklesia isn’t the latest church fad or “growth program” but a Spirit-filled community that is following in the way of Jesus. Ekklesia a community where Jesus is King, the Spirit empowers believers, and 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 in the next ten years we will see a explosion of new expressions of community that will be 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,
