We believe that the ecclesia of this dispensation, the Body of MESSIAH, is made up of all those who have responded to the Evangel under God's mystery program as revealed to and through the Apostle Paul (1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Colossians 1:18), but does not include those who responded under God's prophetic program (those who responded to the prophetic Evangel became members of the Prophetic ecclesia also called the Kingdom ecclesia). The mission of the ecclesia is set forth by the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:14-21 and Ephesians 3:1-12. The destiny of the ecclesia is to appear at the judgment seat of MESSIAH when we shall meet Him in the air (at the rapture), and then to rule and reign with Jesus MESSIAH in the heavenlies (2 Corinthians 5:9-11, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, Ephesians 1:17-23, 1 Corinthians 6:2-3). Everyone who enters God's family is a minister. One of the most important functions for Christian gatherings is to equip its members for ministry. Advancing God's message of Grace is the most exciting and fulfilling life there is. We are His hands and feet. If you think you are not worthy to minister, you're right! But through Jesus you are both worthy, and equipped to do so! To minister means, to proclaim the Evangel! When we meet together as believers, we should encourage everyone-- young and old, men and women, rich and poor, and all nationalities -- to go out and be the missionaries of reconciliation God intends us to be.
