WHO WE ARE
Ekklesia is the New Testament Greek term for assembly or congregation. Never has this word referred to a building, but rather a group of people. After Jesus died on the cross and sent the Holy Spirit, the term ekklesia gained further meaning. It became the name for the early group of people who trusted in Jesus as their Savior; it was the name for the early church. We long for the same passion and desire of the early ekklesia.
To reach out
- to more people, in more places
- so more can know the truth of the Gospel
- so more become disciples of Jesus
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
God is truth and has revealed Himself through the Bible. Through truth, we can know, love, and serve Him.
As Savior, Lord and King, and Head of the Church, Jesus is supreme over all we do.
We go to more people, in more places, to see more become followers of Christ.
We love one another, serve one another, encourage one another, and pursue God with one another.
Existing in three Persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
He is the Son of God who became man to save us from the penalty of sin (Philippians 2:4-11; John 3:15-16)
He died, was buried, then He rose again (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
Today, He is seated at the right hand of God, ministering as the Head of the Church
He works to draw those who don’t believe to Christ
He lives in those who believe to mature them so they can glorify God (Galatians 5:22-23; Ephesians 5:18)
Man sins because they are sinners from birth (Psalm 51:5)
The consequences of sin are spiritual death and eternal separation from God in Hell (Ephesians 2:1-3; Revelation 20:11-15)
His substitutionary death on the cross enables those who trust in Him as Savior from sin to be forgiven completely (Romans 2:21-26; 8:1)
Once a person is saved, they are saved forever
(John 6:39-40; 10:28-29; Romans 38-39; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 2:8-9; 4:30; Jude 24)
