EE in a Nutshell

We are at war. America is facing the most serious attack since its founding. We are in a spiritual battle that manifests in the natural. We are facing Marxism, socialism, economic attack, biological attack, lawlessness, and moral decay - just to name a few. But perhaps the most serious threat is the deception, fear, apathy and lack of action affecting the people of God.

Most of us know scripture, teaching us that ALL authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Jesus, which He has delegated to us. But having all authority is useless unless we use it and take action – unless we engage. This is why we are establishing Ekklesia Engaged.

EE is an organization for patriotic Christians who are aware of the satanic powers operating in the spirit, but are also willing to engage and lead in the natural. EE is based on the promise Jesus made when He said, “I will build my ekkleisa (translated in English as church), and the gates of hell will not prevail against it” (see Matt 16:18). The words “ekkleisa” and “gates” are both governmental terms. Therefore Jesus was essentially saying that He would build His governmental body and the governmental body of hell would not withstand it.

EE brings biblical discipleship and political action together into one package, which is the true meaning of the “ekklesisa” Jesus said He would build. EE discipleship is based on the vision for the coming Kingdom with a mission of preparing the way through civic responsibility, particularly at the grassroots level.

Decentralization and Common Vision are foundational principles in EE. Decentralization is essential for diversity and creativity and is essential to build a true grassroots movement that is immune to the controlling power of establishment religion and establishment politics. Common vision creates a powerful unity that is also essential for a grassroots movement to make an impact on the culture. EE provides a decentralized strategy and training material to build common vision.
