Welcome to Koinonia Group
“We declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ”. 1 John 1:3
Koinonia is the English translation from Greek word (κοινωνία) that means communion by intimate participation. The word is used frequently in the New Testament to describe the relationship within the early Christian church.
In the New Testament, the basis of communion 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. 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.
This term gave expression to the type of relationship that Christians experienced with their God as revealed in his son Jesus. Koinonia also expressed the type of relationships the early Christians shared with one another.
This site is dedicated in the exploration of the meaning and significance the term koinonia in relation to God, church and society.
