Synaxis Groups

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

One of the Early Church’s names for “house church” or "house group" gatherings was SYNAXIS.  Synaxis is a Greek word that means “a gathering, a coming together or a reunion.”  These groups were a “family reunion” of  spiritual family.  These were a very specific kind of meeting, with a very specific purpose.  While synaxis gatherings are mentioned all throughout the New Testament, the book of 1 Corinthians gives us the clearest picture of what took place in these meetings.  1 Corinthians reveals that synaxis meetings were designed to accomplish at least four specific things:
  1. Fellowship
  2. Praise and Worship
  3. The Lord’s Supper (Communion)
  4. Equipping believers to exercise their spiritual gifts. 

Every week, the members of the early church met in a synaxis.  As the large celebration gatherings were incubators for faith and vision, the small synaxis gatherings were incubators for the honing in of an individuals gifts.  In the synaxis, believers were trained to discover, develop, and practice their gifts.  It is in the context of a synaxis that the goal of Ephesians 4 is fulfilled.

We at The E have returned to the foundational and vital call to raise up healthy family both in an individuals life and in the life of the Body of Christ. It is through this revelation of synaxis that we believe we will see revival enter into our region.
