What is a church?

By simply breaking down the word “church” (ekklessia) in the Bible we learned that the church was an assembly of “called out” ones.
We also found the classic definition wonderfully practical. This definition requires three things before a gathering of Christians is considered a “church”:
  • The proper preaching of God’s Word (Proclaim the Gospel)
  • The proper administration of the ordinances (Portray the Gospel)
  • Exercising restorative church discipline (Protect the Gospel)
From You Can’t Plant a Church If You Don’t Know What a Church Is, by Nathan Knight of Washington, D. C.
