What Does The Word “Church” Mean?

This Sunday (July 18th) at both Faith Baptist locations we will be looking at the question, “What is the church?” The Greek word in the New Testament that is often translated into the English word “church” is ecclesia which basically means “congregation” or “assembly.” It is a word that can have a very broad range of meaning and can mean different things depending on the context as John Piper demonstrates below:

Join us at either Faith Baptist South or Faith Baptist West as we spend the next four Sundays trying to answer the question, “What is the church?” from a number of different passages in the New Testament. If you do not have a church home, we’d be honored if you paid either location a visit.
