What does Church mean in the Bible? [1-minute video]


What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word “church”? Maybe, you will think about the buildings with a cross on top of it. Or maybe you think of the humongous church buildings in Europe where architecture is at its highest height.

What if I tell you that the common knowledge of people is wrong about the word church? Here’s what you need to know. The term “church” in the Bible was never used to refer to a building. 

One example is in Romans 16:5. We read:

Likewise greet the church that is in their house.

As you can see, the church here refers to the saints, the people of God. The Greek word for church is ekklesia – which basically means “a calling out.” The term church was mentioned in the Bible around 80 times and all of them are used to refer to people rather than a building or any construction.
