What We Believe

Our Statement of Faith

Welcome!

We believe that every person who comes into the circle of this fellowship was sent by God himself. It is not by accident that we have the joy of meeting you. So, above all else, we want to express Christ’s love to you with genuine, heartfelt warmth. We are eager to know you and are excited to share with you the marvelous ways God is working in our church. We hope and pray that the ministries available here at EBC will meet your needs.

We Believe…

  • In the verbal and plenary inspiration of scripture – that they are complete and the infallible rule for faith and practice.
  • In the Triune Godhead, one in essence but three distinct personalities: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • In the incarnation of Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, very God and very man.
  • In the substitutionary, sacrificial death of Jesus Christ as the just payment (propitiation) for the sins of the whole world.
  • In the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, His ascension to heaven as the believers’ advocate seated at the right hand of the Father.
  • In the necessity of the new birth by faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
  • In the person and work of the Holy Spirit: to convict of sin, regenerate the soul, indwell and empower the believer and gives gifts to the church to do the work of the ministry.
  • In the literal bodily resurrection of the saved to everlasting blessedness and the unsaved to everlasting punishment.
  • In the biblical teaching that man is by birth, born depraved and is in need of a Divine Redeemer.
  • In the personal visible pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ.
  • In the Church and its purpose to evangelize the lost and disciple the believers until Jesus Christ returns.
