Mission and Core Values


Our Mission is to Love God, love each other, love the world.

Love God – Worship: EBCI is called to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. We worship the triune God of the Bible, and we long for others to worship Him.

Love Each Other – Community: Jesus announced that the second greatest commandment is like the first—to love your neighbor as yourself. EBCI is a committed community united together in sacrificial love.

Love the World – Witness: God’s people are called to go and make disciples of all people. We strive to reach our families, our city, and the world with the saving love of Jesus Christ.



We believe God accomplishes His work through the proclamation of His Word; therefore, we focus our ministries on the Bible.


We believe the gospel is the source, means and goal of the Christian life; therefore, the good news of the gospel is the center of all our ministries. 


We believe the work of the Church is fundamentally beyond our ability; therefore, we consciously depend upon the work of the Holy Spirit. 


We believe God has commanded us to make disciples, not converts; therefore, we intentionally pursue transformative relationships. 


We believe God has given us a global mission; therefore, we are driven to see God glorified in our city, nation, and around the world.
