WELCOME TO THE “WE ARE THE CHURCH” WEBSITE!

A love letter from God made up from scriptures

This website was created for one reason, to reach bible believing, born again Christians with a simple message that needs to be heard. Jesus Christ came to seek and save the lost over 2000 years ago. Before He ascended into heaven to prepare a place for all who receive Him, He told his Apostles to preach the gospel of salvation to all who would hear and receive it and to make disciples of those who received His message.

The gathering of believers in the early church worshiped and prayed together. But they also formed regional groups called Ekklesia or congregations, we refer to these today as churches. But the word “church” does not appear in the original manuscripts of the New Testament. The word ekklesia is used in the original texts and manuscripts of the New Testament and it has a very special meaning. The newer translations of the bible changed the word Ekklessia to church. The word “Church” as it is know today represents something very different than the word Ekklesia.

The word not only means the gathering in Greek, but it also means “The Called Out”. Jesus Christ has called us to come out from the darkness and into His marvelous light. To not only repent from our sinful ways and believe on His saving grace poured out for us on the cross at Golgotha, but to become born again with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit so that we can successfully walk out the remaining time of our lives as followers of Jesus Christ and not just fans. When we are born again with the spirit of God, we become heirs of the Kingdom of God with Christ and our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of life destined for an eternity with the Lord.

We have been taught by the traditions of man that man needs religion. There are many different religions in the world today. Even Christianity (The following of Jesus Christ) has been injected with religion and the institutionalization of the faith. There are not many Christians today that know how the early church worshiped or how the believers lived out their lives for Jesus Christ back in the days of the Apostles. I am going to shock you now by telling you that there will be many religious people who will not go to heaven and there will also be many non-religious people that will go to heaven!

The Gospel of John Chapter 3 – You must be born again.

Religion is not a requirement to go to heaven or to have a relationship with God. Receiving Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord is the requirement. I know that this may sound very arrogant to some that have been born into religion. But I do not wish to offend anyone here. But the truth will offend many and Jesus warned us of this. A simple faith in Jesus Christ is all we need.

WE ARE LIVING TEMPLES OF GOD!

Anyone who believes on the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins and repents from their sinful ways will not only be saved from an eternity in Hell and damnation, but they will receive the comforter as promised by Jesus. They will become a walking, breathing, living temple of the Almighty God in which God’s Spirit will reside in them. The Holy Scriptures confirms this over and over again!

1 Corinthians 3:16-17
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
King James Version
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

2 Corinthians 6:16
King James Version
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

1 John 2:27
King James Version
27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

So when we come together to worship God, to pray to God, to read and study His Word and to eat, drink and share our lives together, He is in our presence and He is glorified.

Matthew 18:18-20
King James Version
18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

WE HAVE AN ENEMY AND HIS NAME IS SATAN

It is very important to know that the devil (satan, lucifer) is real and that he not only hates God and all of His creation, but he wants everyone and everything to worship him because he believes he is worthy of all worship.

Isaiah 14:12-17
King James Version
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?


Here are a few videos about satan and his kingdom of darkness. I hope these videos will help you understand who he is and why he is our enemy. Please watch the videos and find out these vital truths!

You need to know who your enemy is. Satan is very real!

Satan has a kingdom and an army of spirits (demons) that serve him.

There are demons who serve satan, but there are people who serve satan also and Jesus called them children of the devil.

RELIGION IS NOT THE SAME AS A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

There is a big difference between being religious and having a relationship with the Creator of the universe. The funny thing is that religiosity is not required to have and maintain a relationship with God. Traditions of man have taught us differently and that is why many people do not know what a relationship with God is or how to have one.

DO WE ALL WORSHIP THE SAME GOD?

THERE ARE DIFFERENT PERCEPTIONS OF WHO JESUS CHRIST IS…

Core Fundamentals of We are the Church

DEVOTION TO SCRIPTURE – click title for more details

We are bible believing followers of Jesus Christ that are devoted to the study of scripture which is a vital part of the discipleship process. Our doctrinal beliefs are rooted in the New Covenant established by the ministry, death & resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We fully understand that the Old Testament is representative of the Old Covenant which was fulfilled and completed by Jesus Christ and is essential for a full understanding of God’s plan for his creation. Our doctrinal beliefs are based solely on biblical texts alone. We do not enforce a particular version of the Holy Bible in our gatherings. But we do encourage our groups to use bible versions that are based on the Textus Receptus (received texts). The most commonly known versions are the King James Bible & the New King James Bible, Young’s Literal Bible & Revised Young’s Literal Bible, Geneva Bible, Green’s Literal Bible, Tyndale Bible, Reina Valera 1909 for Spanish Speaking. We also use the Amplified Study Bible in conjunction with the New King James Bible to help with a deeper understanding of the imposed meaning of the scripture verses.
