The church that started in the Day of Pentecost was described as “kata Holes” or Catholic. Kata Holes or Catholic is the church described in the Book of ACTS 9:31 by the apostles after Pentecost. The word church comes from the Greek word (ekklesia), assembly in English, and the term “Kata Holes” means “all throughout” in Greek. Catholic Church or Assembly of Catholics is found in the BOOK OF ACTS 9:31 ; 5:11 ; 15:22 – EKKLESIA KATH OLES ; HOLEN TEN EKKLESIAN ; HOLE TE EKKLESIA ! Even Apostle Paul also refers to the FAITH of the Church as “CATHOLIC” in ROMANS 1:8, where the latter half of the verse is: KATAGGELLETAI EN HOLO TO KOSMO. The “kata” and “holo” part eventually became Catholic.
