[Christ] is the Head of the Body, the called-out ones (Colossians 1:18, BSV)

The Greek word often translated as “church” in most English versions is ekklēsia (or ecclesia). The word is a compound word meaning “called-out” (ek = “out”; klēsia = “called”). The ecclesia simply is God’s “called-out” ones. The ecclesia is not a building or denomination; not a meeting, or doctrinal creed; it is not somewhere we go, or something we do – it is who we as believers are.
