What is Ekklesia all about?

Community Group Slide Gathering BACKGROUND

In short, we are all about Jesus.

We exist to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches that share the same vision.

We believe the local church is a community of regenerated believers who confess Jesus Christ as Lord. They have been reconciled to God and to one another, through the work of Jesus Christ, and are given a new life with God and one another. In obedience to the Bible they organize under qualified leadership, gather regularly for preaching and worship, observe baptism and Communion as biblical sacraments, are unified by the Holy Spirit, are disciplined for holiness, and scatter to fulfill the Great Commandment (to love God and man) and the Great Commission (to make disciples of all nations) as missionaries to the world for God’s glory and their joy.

Ekklesia Eufaula is a part of the larger Ekklesia Church body, along with Ekklesia Muskogee. We are currently one church in two locations.

We gather for worship every Sunday at 10:30am.

Our Community Groups meet every week in each other’s homes.

In addition to gathering for worship every Sunday, we have Community Groups that meet at least once a week. If the local church is like a family, Sunday’s gathering is like a family reunion and Community Groups are like your immediate family. We get together to share a meal, pray, study the Bible, discuss the previous week’s sermon, and generally seek one another’s good. To get plugged in to a Community Group, come to a worship gathering, email brett@ekklesiachecotah.org, or call the church at (918) 732-9380.

We seek to love Eufaula in any way we can.

We seek to love the city through prayer and practical service. This includes being involved in various city organizations that are already working to make Eufaula great, as well as starting different ministries as needed. We are always seeking the peace and prosperity of the city (Jeremiah 29:4-11).

We want to plant other Jesus loving churches. 

For Ekklesia, planting churches is a natural extension of Jesus’ mission for us to make disciples of all nations. Church planting is a priority for us. 

We plant churches so that more people can meet Jesus and grow in Jesus. The way the first disciples of Jesus fulfilled this calling of his to make disciples was by planting churches that preached the gospel and cared for each other and their cities. Through churches, people hear about Jesus, make Jesus their identity, worship Jesus, experience true community, and become part of Jesus’ mission here on earth. We are committed to the same mission of the Apostles as seen in the book of Acts: plant the gospel in different communities across the globe by planting churches.

The Church body of Ekklesia is committed to training up and sending out equipped leaders to plant other gospel-centered churches that share the vision to fulfill the great commission by making disciples and planting churches.
