Yes.. you read the title correctly. We are followers of Jesus Christ and we DO NOT GO TO CHURCH!
ekklésia: an assembly, a (religious) congregation
Original Word: ἐκκλησία, ας, ἡ
Part of Speech: Noun, Feminine
Phonetic Spelling: (ek-klay-see’-ah)
Definition: an assembly, a (religious) congregation
Usage: an assembly, congregation, church; the Church, the whole body of Christian believers.
1577 ekklēsía(from 1537 /ek, “out from and to” and 2564 /kaléō, “to call”) – properly, people called out from the world and to God, the outcome being the Church (the mystical body of Christ) – i.e. the universal (total) body of believers whom God calls out from the world and into His eternal kingdom.
[The English word “church” comes from the Greek word kyriakos, “belonging to the Lord” (kyrios). 1577 /ekklēsía (“church”) is the root of the terms “ecclesiology” and “ecclesiastical.”]
So…. if we do not go to church, how do we worship and serve God then?
Simple Church or Organic Church
So… How does the Body of Christ (Ekklesia) grow if there are no church buildings or established institutions? Discipleship is the way we build relationships
We don't attend church… Because We are the Ekklesia!
