Koinonia

The Fellowship of the Saints

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts‬ ‭2:42‬)

Fifty days after Christ’s resurrection His followers were filled by the promised Holy Spirit, marking the birth of the Church.  Within weeks thousands were added to their number.  The Christian community in Jerusalem had to learn very quickly how to work and walk with each other in truth and love.

The Greek word “Koinonia” is commonly translated into English as “fellowship” (see Acts 2:42). True Christian fellowship is not easy nor to be taken for granted, yet is the foundation for the Church and fuels her mission to the world. The first 7 chapters of the Book of Acts helps us to better understand the challenges and joys of being in such Christian community — to walk together.
