What do I do? Been reading and that the word church is wrong to use since he comes from the Kirke meaning circle. So what is the right where to use ?

Because people say that we are using pagan translations.

where did the word Church come from? It comes from the German word KIRKE.The word "KIRKE" is a word whose root goes back to circle - circe (the false goddess). Kirke is similar to the Hebrew word (kikkar) rKK meaning a disk or circle. Or SUN WORSHIP! (see Zech 5:6-11 NAS). The sun was worshipped as baal or lord by a full circle of pagans. Is it any question why some then worship on sun-day?

It depends on context.
