Where The SON Shines Through to NW Indiana

What We Believe at EBC

We believe there is one and only one true God, and He is the Maker of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
 
We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ: His virgin birth, His sinless life, His substitutionary death on the cross for our sins, His bodily resurrection from the grave, His ascension to the right hand of God the Father where He ever liveth to make intercession for believers.
 
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person, with God the Father and God the Son and of the same essence; that He convicts of sin; that He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the agent in the New Birth; that He seals, endues, guides, teaches, sanctifies and helps the believer. 
 
We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired word of God in whole and part, and as such is the sufficient and final authority in all matters for the believer. It is inerrant and infallible. It is truth without any mixture of error.
 
We believe Christians should and must grow in their obedience and in their knowledge of their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
 
We believe each member should serve their church and community in some active, regular way.
 
We believe in water baptism by immersion as a symbol and testimony of union with Jesus Christ and his church.
 
We believe that God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.
 
We believe marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.
 
We believe that charismatic sign-gifts attested to the authority of the apostles and prophets as revealers of truth; and that all such gifts have ceased for the remainder of the church age.
 
We are pre-millennial, pre-tribulational in our doctrine of last things.
 
We are a Southern Baptist church that gladly accepts the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message as our statement of faith.
