CHRISTIANITY WITHOUT CHURCHANITY!

You read the title of this page correctly. We are Bible believing followers of Jesus Christ and we clearly understand: WE DO NOT GO TO A CHURCH, BECAUSE WE ARE THE EKKLESIA!

Lidellan’s Scott’s Greek English Lexicon confirms that the origins of the word “church” is shrouded in mystery. The word “Klukos” is one of the words that church comes from. It says, “Of or for a lord or master (speaking of a secular lord). Assumed to be original of the Teutonic kirk, kirche, or church, but how this Greek name came to be adopted by the northern nations rather than the Roman name or Greek name ekklesia has not been satisfactorily explained.” The Greek Lexicon shows that no one really knows how church got into the languages of the world to be used as a replacement for the Jesus Christ’s ekklesia.

Church: “Derived from the Middle English word chirch/kirke, which is derived from the Old English word cirice (and the Old Norse kirkja), which is derived from the Germanic kirika, which is derived from the Classical Greek kyriake (oikia) which means “lord’s house,” and kyriakos which means “belonging to the lord,” and kyrios which means “ruler,” and kyros which means “supreme power,” and all these words are derived from the Indo European base keu which means “a swelling, to be strong, hero,” whence is derived “cave.” 1. A building set apart or consecrated for public worship.” Webster’s New World Dictionary, Third College Edition, 1988, page 251.

Church: “The etymology of this word is generally assumed to be from the Greek, Kuriou oikos (house of God); but this is most improbable, as the word existed in all the Celtic dialects long before the introduction of Greek. No doubt the word means “a circle.” The places of worship among the German and Celtic nations were always circular. (Welsh, cyrch, French, cirque; Scotch, kirk; Greek, kirk-os, etc.) Compare Anglo-Saxon circe, a church, with circol, a circle.” The Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, E. Cobham Brewer, 1894.

Church: “Derived probably from the Greek kuriakon (i.e., “the Lord’s house”), which was used by ancient authors for the place of worship. In the New Testament it is the translation of the Greek word ecclesia, which is synonymous with the Hebrew kahal of the Old Testament, both words meaning simply an assembly, the character of which can only be known from the connection in which the word is found. There is no clear instance of its being used for a place of meeting or of worship, although in post-apostolic times it early received this meaning.” Easton’s Bible Dictionary.

LETS VIEW THE EARLY EKKLESIA
The hierarchy of the Old Testament is not meant for the New Testament Covenant of Grace.
A bad idea has been made the standard in the church.
The Five Fold Ministry are gifts of God through the Holy Spirit which enable believers to build the Ekklesia. There is not instruction or command to form a church hierarchy in Ekklesia.
An additional video that talks about the church hierarchy.

We are focused on home based congregations. We do not meet in typical church buildings.

We follow an early church gathering format that is quite different from what you see in typical churches or temples today.

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

Multiply-Discipleship
Multiply-Discipleship
The gathering of believers is for the purpose of fellowship, prayer, worshiping God, studying the scriptures and discipleship. This is not so in the typical church of today.
Disciples are raised up by Elders to become Elders so they can disciple. Very simple concept.
