Our vision & Mission

Our identity as Christian people is determined by our belief in Father, Son & Spirit; as seen in the life of Jesus, His teaching, His example and our response.
We seek to be a community that is:
WORSHIPPING

A community which affirms and celebrates the whole nature of God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Our services seek to reflect the breadth of worship in the Kingdom, so that all are inspired to live in the ways of Christ.

MISSIONAL

 ‘GO’ – forgiveness, reconciliation and transformation, local and international.
We are compelled by His love and take seriously the Great Commission and individually and corporately are committed to all aspects of mission.

Disciple Making

Serving, praying, learning and growing more Christ-like.
We are personally committed to growing in our understanding of who God is and through training and resourcing strengthen ourselves for His service. We value and promote prayer so people can serve God with enthusiasm in caring for each other.

PEOPLE TO THE WORLD

Holistic and social gospel as one.
The Word of God is taught in such a way as to equip people to align their values, beliefs and practices to God’s kingdom.

BAPTIST

Scriptural, radical, confessing and celebrating the faith.
We are committed to being distinctive – working locally and nationally within the Baptist family.

PROPHETIC

Confronting evil, injustice and hypocrisy in our world.
We seek to be a people of compassion, committed to help the needy and provide a place where the hurting will find Christ’s love and justice proclaimed.

SACRIFICiAL

Incarnate (intentional) work of Christ in the community in which we live and work.
We are committed to work as salt and light in a hurting world, seeking to use Godly influence to allow the Holy Spirit to change the destiny of many.

INCLUSIVE

Transcending racial barriers, gender, class, age and culture
We value all people, children and cultures so together we may be built up to the glory of God, desiring the church to grow larger as we reach out to the world and yet small enough to ensure people feel a valued part of the whole through our small group network.

Our Safe church Policy

At EBC we place great importance in providing a space that is safe for all those who enter our building, particularly children and vulnerable people.
