ecclesia ekklēsía  is a greek word found in the scriptures meaning church. We are a Christian community who together are learning how to live as the Church.  Our hope is that we would reflect, learn from, and serve well the city we call home as we share the love of Jesus, our Liberating King. 

Founded in 1999, Ecclesia continues to serve the city of Houston and engage global issues of poverty, injustice, and water accessibility. Over the years the church has moved from our space on Taft street in the Montrose area to our new home on Elder Street near downtown.

Below are links to offer a deeper look into the life of Ecclesia.
