The word "church" is used around 100 times in the New Testament. The original Greek word is ekklesia, and the Latin word is ecclesia. This word was used to describe a body of believers, which was a Christian community--the Body of Christ.

Over time the meaning of the word "church" changed and was used to describe a building. Many, if not most, Christians in our part of the world have not been taught the original meaning of the word "church" and have not experienced life in a small Christian community.

It's hard to describe the wonder of sharing life with a few other like minded Christians. In the early church, the words laity, clergy, priests, and saints applied to all the believers who belonged to a Christian community. These words also apply to us. We are all servants of God who are called to minister to one another. To be known, to be loved, and to be cared for by a few other believers must be experienced because there are no words to express what it's like to love one another as the Body of Christ.

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)
