Winning Disciples for Christ
Our Motivation: Love for God & Love for One Another
Many people look for their church home like they look for a restaurant, and it is not the same. When looking for a restaurant people search for a place where they can get someone to serve them for no extra charge, an atmosphere of acceptance, an environment that is not too cold nor too hot, and a place that doesn’t expect much out of them other than pay their bill before they leave.
Well, if that is what you are seeking in a church home then Ebenezer is not the place for you. At Ebenezer Baptist we offer you a cross to take up as Christ’s disciple. We offer you the chance to forfeit your vacation to serve as a chaperone with our youth at M-Fuge. We offer your youth and children a chance to forsake their selfish desires to serve others. Yes we have ski trips for youth and we have children’s outings for children but they are centered on serving others. We offer you a chance to give up a week of your vacation to go and share the Gospel in an international mission experience. We offer you the chance in the month of June to come home tired and rush out to serve in the evening Vacation Bible School with the chance of sharing the Gospel and investing your life in the life of a child. We offer you the chance to give up your Sunday evenings for Bible Study and worship and don an AWANA shirt, and lead a fifth-grader to a life-changing faith in Christ. We offer you a chance to lose your life, so that you might really find it.
We offer you a weekly confrontation with the Word of God on Sunday and Wednesday of each week. We offer you the chance to arise early on Sunday and when you arrive home on Sunday night to be both tired and encouraged. We offer you the chance to rush to church after a long Wednesday’s work and be challenged and invigorated from God’s Word. We promise the teaching from God’s Word will make us all uncomfortable sometimes. It will challenge our preconceived notions. It will make us think, and it might make us mad. It will ask us whether we’re doing the things that really matter in the long run. When the world says we’re worthless, God’s Word will pick us up and remind us what God thinks about us—God sees the value inside and loves us too much to leave us the way that we are.
We offer you the promise that you’ll have to do all of this alongside people who don’t look much like you and don’t always see the world the same way that you do. “One body…One Spirit …One hope…One Lord, One faith, One baptism, One God and Father of all.” (Ephesians 4:4-6) That’s what Ebenezer Baptist Church is all about. Why should churches be divided along lines of age, race, wealth, musical preference, occupation, or leisure pursuit? Contemporary churches. Traditional churches. Biker churches. Surfer churches. Singles churches. Senior adult churches. Is that what Jesus intended when He founded the church? We think not, and we have determined to build a church that transcends generations and personal preferences in which people find their unity around the things that really matter: Christ, our salvation in Him, all of the teachings of His Word, and the work that He has given us to do.
Is that the kind of church you’re seeking? I can’t answer for you, but maybe that question is being asked from the wrong perspective. The question from God’s perspective is, what kind of church is God seeking for you? We’re not perfect but we believe we are trying to build His church. If this is the type of place you sense God desires you to serve, we welcome the chance to open a conversation with you about it.
