Ecclesia is a new nondenominational Christian church located on the south side of Evansville, Indiana. We seek to develop an authentic faith community and deep personal relationships in an age often defined by individual isolation and surface-level attractions. Ecclesia meets on Sunday evenings in the Community Martial Arts building at 803 Washington Avenue.

We believe that:

  • Jesus’ instruction to love God and to love your neighbor as yourself requires a new way of seeing the world, and that striving to live according to that teaching helps us to develop it;

  • genuine spirituality is developed in relationship with other people, and an important part of how we see God is formulated in our lives together;

  • true community is greater than the sum of its parts, and yet affirms and celebrates the individuality of every single person involved;

  • God’s image is so vast, wonderful, and incomprehensible that it takes the whole human race, every nation, ethnicity, language, culture, and people, to express it;

  • the mission of God is nothing less than the redemption of the whole creation, which includes healing relationships between people and God, their selves, each other, and the creation itself, and that the Gospel is God’s invitation to be a part of this cosmic reconciliation;

  • Christian spirituality is not just about a belief that is discussed on Sunday, but discipleship that results in a changed way of life every day;

  • that Jesus meant it when he said he came so that people “may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).

  • “life to the full” is a life that can only be experienced together, in radical co-unity with one another, being formed by the Word and Spirit into a family of disciples.

Ecclesia meets on Sunday evenings at the Community Martial Arts building, 803 Washington Avenue. Bring a dish at 6:00 pm for “Food for Thought”, our weekly potluck dinner and discussion hour to talk about the Bible, culture, current events, and whatever else may be on the agenda. Then at 7:15 join us for worship and the celebration of the Lord’s Supper.
