"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 very exciting times!
I would not want to live in any other moment in history than this one. As the world’s fears increase, I believe that we are at the precipice of revival. God is pouring out his Spirit to heal, comfort, deliver and restore. The Spirit is moving.
But we need a new container to capture the new wine that God is pouring out. At the center of what God is doing is Jesus’ ekklesia. Ekklesia isn’t the latest church fad or “growth program.” Ekklesia is Jesus’ living, breathing community here on earth. It’s a community where Jesus is King, the Spirit administers gifts, 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 proliferation 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 racism, extreme poverty, 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 a community of God’s people who are 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,
