Putting Faith Into Action
To train and equip ordinary people to go and do extraordinary things in the name of Jesus so that all might see, hear and experience God’s love.
Being a Witness
Jesus’ First Instructions: Come, follow me and I will make you fishers of men. – Mark 1:17
The members of ECBC believe that all Christians are called, just like the first disciples, to be witnesses to what God, through Jesus Christ has done for them. To this end we offer two spiritual development and witnessing programs.
Discipleship Program: ECBC uses the MasterLife Series to provide a one year commitment in four parts of classroom and personal study. A recent review of this series said, “An excellent resource to help persons move toward maturity in Christ, MasterLife is appropriate for both new Christians and experienced believers. In addition to gaining victory over areas of weakness, participants will be encouraged to master living in the Word, prayer, personal purity, witnessing, and other key disciplines of faith.”
Lay Witnessing Program: This thirteen week commitment uses the Evangelism Explosion Program to equip our laypeople to make witnessing a way of life. The program combines class room instruction with actual on-the-job training where experienced teachers model and train the inexperienced in actual witnessing encounters.
For more information on these programs, please contact the church office.
