In Greek, the word for ekklesia, or assembly. It was used to describe the government of a city or state. The church is the governing body of Christ on the earth.
The Gates of Hell will not be able to withstand the increase and aggressive advance of the Church, which God is using to establish the Dominion of God on the Earth. Aided by supernatural power, the people of God will be empowered to bring evidence of God’s reality, beauty, and love to the world. The church has been praying for the kingdom of God to COME on the Earth for over 2,000 years. What will that look like?
