Membership is a personal choice – a choice to enter into an extended family relationship with other believers in Jesus. We say “family” because we are committed to each other, and we share a common identity and a common goal. Like family, we desire to be part of your journey.
Once a quarter, Pastor Buster Brown and Pastor Craig Harris teach our New Members Class. Participating in the class enables you to learn more about what we believe as a church, how to join the ECBC family through church membership, and the benefits of being part of Community Groups and Sunday Morning equip•u classes. The class also provides a great opportunity to get to know other people! Childcare is available. All participants are asked to register for the class:
After completing the New Members Class, we ask each individual to complete the New Members Form:
Baptism is for the individual who has received the saving benefits of Christ's atoning work and become His disciple. In obedience to Christ's command and as a testimony of faith, a believer should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that baptism is only for believers, not because we are Baptists, but because we believe that the meaning of baptism, as well as the clear pattern of Scripture, requires it. We believe that baptism by immersion is the only mode that underscores and clearly represents the meaning of baptism (identification with Christ). This desire for obedience to the Word of God compels us to make it a requirement for membership in our church. If you are interested in being baptized, please register for a baptism date. An ECBC pastor will then contact you to schedule an interview approximately two weeks prior to your baptism date.
