Watch our Church Service Livestream Sunday Mornings at 11:00am PST

What to expect at Ekklesia 12 Sunday Gatherings

 

We will not present an easy, watered-down version of the gospel that leaves out difficult topics. So expect a new wineskin where each gathering is led by the Holy Spirit. Our services are generally fairly long, starting at 10:30am.

We start our services with Testimonies, which are authentic forms of praise; what has happened in your life that showed the Lord's hand at work this past week or two?

What will services look like?

  • We will worship the Lord with song

  • One or two of our leaders will bring teachings

  • We will spend time in small groups praying together

  • We will celebrate communion together

  • We will provide an opportunity to sow your tithes and offerings

  • Children's ministry is available - contact us to learn more and how we can serve your family.

  • Home Groups are being launched - contact us to connect.

  • And yes, there's tea, coffee and snacks and you're welcome to bring something to share!

What is 5 Fold Ministry?

Ephesians 4:11-12

"And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ..."

The 5 Facets Of Ministry

  1. Pastoring (Shepherding)

  2. Teaching (Discipling, Feeding the Sheep)

  3. Evangelism (Reaching the lost)

  4. Prophetic (Words of Knowledge, Words of Encouragement and Teaching)

  5. Apostolic (Shifting Culture)

It is a common misconception that Christians should be quiet on matters of culture. But God calls His church out on the 7 Mountains of culture in His name, to be involved in the 7 biggest categories that define our culture. After all, what is done in God's name for His Kingdom sees far greater success than anything humans attempt alone.

Romans 8 : 1-4

1Therefore there is now no condemnation [no guilty verdict, no punishment] for those who are in Christ Jesus [who believe in Him as personal Lord and Savior].

For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has set you free from the law of sin and of death.

For what the Law could not do [that is, overcome sin and remove its penalty, its power] being weakened by the flesh [man’s nature without the Holy Spirit], God did: He sent His own Son in the likeness of sinful man as an offering for sin. And He condemned sin in the flesh [subdued it and overcame it in the person of His own Son],

so that the [righteous and just] requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who do not live our lives in the ways of the flesh [guided by worldliness and our sinful nature], but [live our lives] in the ways of the Spirit [guided by His power].
