Our Beliefs

Purpose Statement:

The mission of EBC is to love God supremely and serve others with joy. (Luke 10:27)

Our Core Values:

God centered worship

Worship is the ultimate goal of the church. It is giving God priority in every area of life. Therefore, we value the exaltation of God in our lives individually and corporately. It is not about us, it is about God. (I Chronicles 16:29)

Listen to a message from our pastor about God-centered worship.

Spirit controlled living

We believe that the life of a Christian controlled by the Holy Spirit is the life that loves and obeys God. Therefore, we value the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Believer knowing that such an individual will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh but manifest the fruit of the Spirit relationally. (Galatians 5:16-26)

Love directed relationships

We believe God’s most significant creation is the family and God’s most significant concept is love. Therefore, we strive to build loving relationships in our physical and spiritual families and to manifest love to our neighbors. (John 13:34-35)

Prayer empowered ministry

We believe that God desires His people to pray and that He hears and answers prayer. Therefore, the ministries and activities of this church must be empowered by prayer in their conception, planning and execution. (Matthew 7:7-11)
