The ekklesia is an assembly of believers under the headship of Jesus Christ. We are committed to the Kingdom Mandate and are submitted to each other in love. We instruct one another so as to encourage improvement. We stir one another to action in obedience to our calling from God. We comfort, console, and reassure one another through the things of this life. We gather one or more times each week to support each other’s ongoing work of being and making disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.
This is the Ekklesia at Anoka. Just as there was an ekklesia in each city in the first century, so there is today. There are not denominations, but groups of believers who gather to do the work of the Kingdom of Heaven, which is at hand.
