The Bible is full of the Kingdom of God. It is like a multi-faceted diamond. What we see, is determined by the facet we look through. If we look through the lens of legalism, we become like the Scribes and Pharisees. If we look through the lens of love, we begin to see the Heart of God, and the wisdom of His Kingdom. If we look through the lens of Kingdom, we see God's wisdom, and power on earth.
The first step is to join our members' group at https://mewe.com/join/theempoweredkingdom. Invitations to meetings will be shared with members in that group.
We are affiliated with Jesus Christ alone. He said, "My Kingdom is not of this world," (John 18:36).
If Jesus did not create denominations, (which are endlessly divided), or manmade institutions and affilliations, but prayed for His followers to be unified as one, then why would we not follow His example? Jesus Kingdom produced remarkable results when His disciples did things His way. His way worked, and it still does! It is what He commanded. Our mission is simply to follow His example.
The word "church" is actually not in the original Greek or Hebrew. It was inserted in place of the word "ekklesia," which was the word Jesus used when He said to Peter, "You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my ekklesia [which has been translated as "church"], and the gates of Hades will not overcome it." (Matthew 16:18).
The word "ekklesia" means a group of people who are called to assemble. It was used both of political assemblies, and as a reference to the gathering of Christ's followers in groups. So, when Jesus was refering to His "ekklesia," He was not refering to a building, or a meeting place, or a ritual, but to the people He was gathering to Himself. He then told these people (His disciples, or His "ekklesia"), "As you go, proclaim this message: 'The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.'" (Matthew 10:7). So, the people He called (His ekklesia or assembly), were told to preach the Kingdom at hand. This is not quite the same as our definitions of church today. It is easy to go to church and live out a passive form of Christianity where nothing of the Kingdom really manifests in our day-to-day life. Our churches cater to this. Jesus' Kingdom called every person to be personally engaged, and fully active in the building of His Kingdom. His ekklesia is passionate, highly motivated, and actively building Kingdom. By contrast, our churches have turned their attention away from Kingdom building to self-promotion, and the building of their own buildings, ministries, stage shows, and so on. None of this was commanded, instructed, or endorsed by Jesus in any way. There is a difference.
Follow His instructions, which are clear and generally easy to understand. These can be found in the Gospels. Pray to God for guidance. Ask for a pure and humble heart. Ask for wisdom to walk in His way. Listen to God and not to man. (Psalm 118:8). Be obedient to the Jesus, and His Word.
In Acts 2:37-39, when people asked Peter what they had to do to be saved, Peter's answer was, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
Then in verse 47, we read; "And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
In Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus gives His disciples their marching orders with these words; "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
In John 14:15 Jesus said, "If you love me you will keep my commandments."
It is that simple. It does not have to be complicated. Be genuine. Be authentic. Listen to God and not to man. Read the Gospels, and obey Jesus. It is all there.

Not formally, because we already have Jesus mission in scripture and we simply need to follow Him. That being said, we are inviting churches back to the Kingdom Jesus established, His way.
Please do not send donations to the Empowered Kingdom. We do not solicit funds for teaching the Gospel. Nor do we ask for tithes and offerings. Our approach is to encourage members to support each other and worthy causes directly related to them and their community. Pray to the Lord and ask Him to guide you. When it comes to small groups, we encourage the members of each group to identify a cause or community need, and then contribute directly to that cause or need. Jesus said, "Let your giving be in secret," and "do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing." Your giving is between you and God, and we do not need to know what you have chosen to give. That is your business. That being said, giving is an important part of your spiritual development, for "God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Corinthians 9:7).

Probably. Unlike churches that are typically "Sunday-only" focused, the Kingdom is all encompassing. This means that its principles apply to everything from teaching, to coaching, to parenting, to personal development, to business, to finance, to entrepreneurship, to education, and much more.

The Empowered Kingdom is a Private Membership Association. This means that when you join our group, you automatically become a member of the Empowered Kingdom Private Membership Association. A Private Membership Association (PMA) is formed for the purpose of conducting private business and private matters outside of the public domain, in the private domain. As such, a PMA has its own rules and regulations that are independent and seperate from that of State and public domain. One of the points of distinction is that disputes are settled internally in a PMA rather than in courts of law, which are part of the public domain. This is in keeping with 1 Corinthians 6:1-2 that states, "If any of you has a grievance against another, how dare he go to law before the unrighteous instead of before the saints! Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?"
We recommend learning more about Private Membership Associations at https://mewe.com/group/5c6c73f2aef4005aa665a9af. If the terms and conditions of our Private Membership Association are not acceptable to you in full, you do not have permission to continue.
