Ebenezer Baptist Church was founded in 1778 near the banks of Jeffries Creek, not far from our current location today. Since that time, Ebenezer has continually sought to bring the hope of Jesus Christ to its community, state, nation, and world. We recognize that our world is constantly changing today, including the needs of those around us. We are then called to minister to our world, doing whatever it takes to reach our community with the hope of Jesus Christ.
Written in 1823, these are the beliefs, doctrines, and practices that guide us:
Suppose you were standing before God at this moment, and He asked you “Why should I let you into heaven?” What would you say to answer Him?
That is a tough questions to answer. What could we possibly say to God to convince Him that we deserve heaven? Maybe “I lived a good life and tried to do the right things.” Possibly “I went to church and even gave a lot of money to help the poor.” You might even say “I have tried to be the best person that I could be.” Is any of that good enough?
There are a few facts that you should know about this important subject:
None of those answers to the “question” from above are good enough. Salvation is only obtained through a saving relationship with Jesus Christ . If you would like to pray and receive Christ as Savior and Lord, you might want to pray a prayer like this:
Thank you for dying on a cross and paying the price for my sin. Please forgive me of my sin and come into my life. I want you to be the Savior and Lord of my life. I am going to live for You from this point forward. Thank you for being my Savior! Amen
If you prayed this prayer, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to follow up with you.
Baptism is an important step in your faith that is a public profession of you being saved by Jesus.
Once saved and baptized, then you can officially join the Ebenezer family as a member.
Membership can occur in one of a few ways:
Once a member, we look forward to helping you find a place to serve the Lord. Whether you volunteer to teach, sing in the choir, or serve on one of our ministry teams, there is a place for you to serve at Ebenezer. For more information about serving, contact us at email@example.com.
