Ekklesia Christian Life Fellowship

What is Ekklesia?

Ekklesia Christian Life Fellowship is a Protestant Evangelical Charismatic cell-based church where ministry is centered on relationships and carried out using Small Groups and regular large group meetings call “Celebration” services on weekends.

We are a church . . .

Ekklesia (pronounced ek-klay-see'-ah) is The Greek word used in the Bible for church, which actually means “assembly” or literally “called out ones.” It is made up of the two Greek words, EK—“out of,” and KALEO—“shall be called.”

The way the word was used in Hellenistic (Greek) culture was to refer to a certain set of people within the populous who were to come together for a special meeting or to take care of special business.

Theologically, Christians are God's ekklesia. Those called out from the rest of the world--to be for Him a witness of His glory.

Moreover, we have adopted Ekklesia as our name, because we want to convey the idea that “church” is more than a building, but is a place of God's presence when there is an ekklesia—two or three who have come together in Jesus' name (Matthew 18:20).

As Jesus said to his disciples, “ . . . upon this rock I will build my church (ekklesia); and the gates of hell shall not pre-vail against it.” Matthew 16:18, KJV.
