- THE CHURCH -

Ecclesia

 

 

 

THE CHURCH - Ecclesia (Ekklesia) in Christian theology means both: (1) a particular body of faithful people, and (2) the whole body of the faithful.

THE CHURCH is YOU and ME.


"The hope of the church yet lies in the purity of her theology, that is, her beliefs about God and man and their relation to each other." -  A.W. Tozier

The hope of the church - YOU and ME - lies in the purity of OUR theology, that is, OUR beliefs about God and man and their relation to each other.

 

Ecclesia is not a building and our relationship to a building.

 

Ecclesia is not a legal entity and our relationship to that entity.

 

Ecclesia is not a owned our managed primarily by a man or woman and our relationship to any man or any woman.

 

Ecclesia is not a 501(c)(3) government approved organization and our relationship is not with the government and its rules.

 

THE CHURCH is YOU and ME and is about our relationship with Him.

 

And we better get our thinking right about this, because the time of His Return is upon us - He is not coming for the Church Board, or the Denominational Headquarters, or the Church "leadership" - JESUS IS COMING FOR HIS BRIDE - THE CHURCH - YOU AND ME.

And He expects us to have this right because He is going to ask us.

 

"The hope of the church yet lies in the purity of our theology, that is, our beliefs about God and man and our relation to each other."

 

John 13:35  "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
