Purpose Statement

Ebenezer Baptist Church is an urban-based, global ministry dedicated to individual growth and social transformation through living in the message and carrying out the mission of Jesus Christ.

Spiritual Formation

We EXALT our Lord, Jesus Christ and believe that by living in His Word we have eternal salvation.

We EDUCATE our members through an interactive program of life-long learning that includes Bible studies, small groups, spiritual mentoring, and practice.

We EDIFY God with head and heart through vibrant praise, persistent prayer and relevant proclamation.

We EFFECT growth in the church and change in the community by faithfully rendering to God our time, tithes and talents.

We EMBRACE the belief that the acid test of a congregation’s spiritual health and the relevance of its ministry is its impact upon the community.

Social Transformation

  • We EMBODY the mission of Jesus Christ through service-filled lives that work to feed the poor, liberate the oppressed, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, and visit those who are sick or imprisoned.
  • We EQUIP the body to both discern and perfect the various gifts of individual members for the work of Christ here on earth.
  • We EMPOWER the people of Ebenezer to impact the world by bearing witness to the God of love and justice through Jesus Christ.
  • We EVANGELIZE those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Liberator.
  • We ENLIST the people of our community
