ABOUT THE EKKLESIA
The Ekklesia of Oklahoma exists to train, resource and equip the Body of Christ in order to advance the Kingdom of God and perpetuate the ministry of Jesus Christ in transforming culture, communities and cities locally and globally. Our objective is to be actively doing that in the areas of FAMILY, EDUCATION, BUSINESS, GOVERNMENT & POLITICS, ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT, MEDIA and RELIGION.
Our vision to see the Body of Christ embrace its Christ given identity to be salt, light, seed, leaven, & cities on a hill. Matthew 5:14, 13:24-33
Intentional Intercessory Prayer
WHAT IS THE EKKLESIA?
The Ekklesia by definition and historical account, refers to a legislative & judicial branch of government. The term was commonly used in the Roman Empire, approximately 680 years prior to the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. These "called out" or "sent ones", were males of fighting age and their presence was required when the gathering was called.
This gathering when assembled was called The Ekklesia. Here laws, ordinances, decrees and decesions would be made that would determine the direction of cities, regions and even if the people would engage in physcial warfare and apprehend new territories.
Jesus intentionally used the word Ekklesia to describe His CHURCH (Ekklesia) His governmental body left to rule and reign on the Earth until His return! Jesus made it abundantly clear that the Ekklesia would be built by Himself and on the revelation of His identity as The Messiah King and would withstand the very gates of hell.
We believe that The Ekklesia (THE CHURCH), the called out and sent ones who are redeemed image bearers classified as Sons of God, by way of repentance of sin, faith in Jesus, and commitment to follow and obey his teachings and voice, are the ONLY hope for genuine city and cultural transformation.
WHAT IS CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION?
Freedom, sustainable prosperity, and justice are the legitimate goals of all nations and people groups. Throughout the world these goals are becoming harder to obtain and we are moving further away from obtaining them.
The Ekklesia of Oklahoma is part of an global movement of Christ followers and concerned citizens responding to the growing social, political, and economic crises with practical Biblical principles and models that solve specific community and national problems. We are a group of people seeking to transcend self-interests and “politics as usual” to help our communities, cities, states, and nations thrive out of these crises.
The Ekklesia of Oklahoma is committed to city & cultural transformation and the immediate abolition of abortion.
