WeAreTheChurch.Faith \ WeAreTheEkklesia.com \ WeAreTheEkklesia.org \ WeAreTheEkklesia.net \ is an online ministry that focuses on evangelizing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost & dying world with the truth & love of God.
WeAreTheChurch \ WeAreTheEkklesia IS NOT a 501.c3 church \ organization \ corporation. We will not make a business of our faith. WeAreTheChurch \ WeAreTheEkklesia IS NOT affiliated with any institutionalized church (Denominational or Non-Denominational). We do not promote institutionalized church. Our focus is on sharing The Gospel of Jesus Christ to all who will hear it and making disciples of those who believe the Gospel. We proclaim the Kingdom of God and the need to enter it by faith only in the work that Jesus Christ has completed on the Cross at Calvary. Our focus is on following Jesus Christ by studying His commands and apply them to our lives. We are independent, Bible Believing, Born Again, Spirit Filled followers of Jesus Christ.
We understand that the Ekklesia (The body of believers who are called out by God to follow Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior) is the body of Christ which is made up of all who have been born again. Baptized by the Holy Spirit and are redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ by faith alone.
We believe that the institutionalization of the Ekklesia (the body of Jesus Christ) was not God’s plan, but it was man who instituted the traditions of men and hijacked the Christian faith. We also understand that the institutionalized church has become the known standard for Christianity and that the majority of Christians today look down on anyone who does not assimilate to the set traditions of the Christian Churches. But we hold to our deep convictions that the church system is not Biblical and are convinced that the Ekklesia is what Jesus has been building and will continue to build, not the church.
We clearly preach the gospel with an emphasis on the core fundamentals of the gospel message which are:
- Acknowledge that we are sinners that are in need of salvation.
- Accept that there is no other way we can be saved from our sin besides believing on Jesus Christ for the atonement and remission of sin.
- Repent of our sin and choose to turn from our sinful ways and desire to live a life that is pleasing and acceptable to God.
- Believe in our hearts that Jesus died for us to pay the full and final cost for sin.
- Confess with our mouths that Jesus died for us and that He is our Lord and Savior.
- Be baptized in water to proclaim our salvation decision to the world and
seek with desire the baptism of the Holy Spirit of God.
- Commit to the discipleship process and find an Assembly or Congregation that disciples believers and prepares them for a successful walk with Jesus Christ for life.
We do believe that all believers are called to Discipleship and eventual spiritual maturity of Eldership. It is not for a select few, but all who are called by His name.
We understand that this is counter to the typical Christian Church Doctrines of today, but we stand on these beliefs because we believe that they are biblical. We do not want to limit God by restricting the ministry gifts to a select few individuals who have decided to professionalize the ministry. Instead, we desire to allow God to use each and every believer for the edification of the body of Jesus Christ and the work of the ministry as the Lord desires.

We started an online fellowship on Meetup that meets every Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm CDT. Please check out our group and join us if you can!
Our dream is to one day have multiple home groups that meet weekly. We continue to plan for this and will believe for it to come to fruition. The following document outlines what that will look like. Please download a copy and check it out.
We don't go to a church, Because We are the Ekklesia!
