Koinonia

 

Definition:

There is no single English word that is adequate to express the depth and richness of Koinonia. In the New Testament, the basis of communion “koinonia” begins with a joining of Jesus with the community of the faithful. This union is also experienced in practical daily life. The same bonds that link the individual to Jesus also link him or her with other faithful followers. The New Testament letters describe those bonds as so vital and genuine that a deep level of intimacy can be experienced among the members of a local church.

 

Background:

The first usage of koinonia in the Greek New Testament is found in Acts 2:42-47, where a striking description of the common life shared by the early Christian believers in Jerusalem is given:

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the communion, to the breaking of bread
and to prayer...All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their
possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need…They broke bread in their homes and
ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.”

 

The Koinonia fellowship involves a group of young adults who meet together to connect with God and each other. As a communion, we openly share our daily struggles and successes; pray for spiritual and earthly matters; and conduct biblical learning sessions. Our purpose is to nurture one another spiritually and bring forth a strong commitment from every individual to have a deep and meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal is to build a strong and healthy Christ-like community among young adults so that together, we can spread the love and passion of Christ to non-believers within our society and beyond.

 

Koinonia meets on every 3rd Tuesday night from 7:30-9:00pm
