“Church” is the translation of the Greek term ekklesia, and is used in the New Testament to identify the community of believers in Jesus Christ. Thus, when Jesus declares: “I will build my church” (Mt ), it did not come as something unfamiliar to the common : Pastor Luis Ángel Díaz-Pabón.

The Coming Evangelical Crisis is a compelling and challenging work, a valuable resource for pastors, teachers, leaders, and anyone who is concerned about the effectiveness of the church in this generation and for the next decade of a new millennium.

book the subject of the events of the Tribulation this does not prove that the Church is present at that time because saints is a generic term which describes believers of all ages. In the coming years, argue Mark DeYmaz and Harry Li, that tiny fraction will need to grow.

That growth is, as the book’s title puts it, The Coming Revolution in Church Economics. DeYmaz is founding pastor of Mosaic Church of Central Arkansas, cofounder of the Mosaix Global network, and a leader in the multiethnic church movement/5(27).

The book of Acts details the beginning of the church and its miraculous spread through the power of the Holy Spirit. Ten days after Jesus ascended back into heaven (Acts ), the Holy Spirit was poured out upon of Jesus’ followers who waited and prayed (Acts ; –4).

The church is the continuing incarna- tion of God incarnate. The word “incarnate” comes from two Latin words meaning “in flesh.” It means that God took on a hu- man body in the person of Jesus Christ. And since Jesus ascended into heaven, we now, as His File Size: 28KB.

Question: "What is the church?" Answer: Many people today understand the church as a building. This is not a biblical understanding of the church. The word “church” is a translation of the Greek word ekklesia, which is defined as “an assembly” or “called-out ones.”The root meaning of church is not that of a building, but of people.

The simple reality is that we live in a godless world. Of course, I don’t mean that there isn’t a God, or that the true and living God is not active in our world.

The rapture will be followed in heaven by the Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Revelation ) as the Church, the Bride of Christ, receives her heavenly reward.

The book is targeted to pastors and church leaders and advises them to base their ministry on God's purposes, not their own ideas of ministry, hence the term "Purpose Driven".

The first "canon" was the Muratorian Canon, compiled in ADwhich included all of the New Testament books except Hebrews, James, and 3 John. The Council of Laodicea (AD ) concluded that only the Old Testament (along with the Apocrypha) and the twenty-seven books of the New Testament were to be read in the churches.
