Koinonia, pronounced koi-no-KNEE-ah—accent on the third syllable, is a Greek word that appears in its altered forms about 2--- times in the New Testament. Commonly, it is translated as “fellowship.” In Acts 2 v. 42, the first place the word occurs in the Bible, says of the early Christians: “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship [koinonia], in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.” However, in the New Testament, koinonia means a much deeper and more intimate fellowship other than just connecting with and enjoying the company of other Christians.
