ECB is a Biblical community of the nations to the nations
with prayer and the Word of God as our foundation.  
We are called to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ, serve each other, and reach the world.
1) We believe that GOD has revealed Himself to us in His creation, in the Bible and in His Son, Jesus Christ. God is to be worshiped and obeyed as the source and Lord of all life. (Exodus 9:27; Deuteronomy 6:4; 32:4; Colossians 1:16; Psalm 90:2; 93:1; 139:1-13;  1 Timothy 1:17;  Revelation 19:6; Malachi 3:6; Isaiah 6:3; 1 John 4:8; Ephesians 2:8; 1 Peter 1:3; Romans 8:28)

2) We believe the BIBLE to be the inspired trustworthy Word of God. It is our only rule of faith and practice. The Bible is to be taught and preached, applying its truth to everyday life. (Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21)

3) We believe that PEOPLE were originally created innocent and pure, but that the first of these fell through the sin of disobedience to God so all people and all creation since then have been separated from God. Therefore all people are corrupt in body, soul and spirit by nature and are in need of reconciliation with God. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-5,12)

4) We believe that JESUS CHRIST is God’s unique Son, sent to our world as God in the flesh. He was fully God and fully man. He came to reveal God to us and to provide a way for us to know God personally and have eternal life with Him. (Matthew 1:21; John 1:18; Colossians 1:15; John 1:12; Acts 16:31; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 1:17; Matthew 28:6; 1 Peter 1:3)

5) We believe that God has graciously provided SALVATION through Jesus Christ who died on the cross as the substitutionary atonement for sin, and rose again from the dead to open the way to new life with God. All who place their complete trust in Jesus Christ are saved from their fallen condition by God’s grace alone, apart from works or merit. (Ephesians 1:13-14; 2:8-9; Romans 5:8-9; 8:1,38-39; 1 Peter 1:5; 2:24; John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Jude 24)

6) We believe that God’s HOLY SPIRIT gives new and eternal spiritual life to all who receive Jesus Christ by faith. The Holy Sprit indwells the believer, providing power for service and enabling a holy lifestyle. (Acts 5:3-4; Titus 3:5; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:9-12; 12:4-14;    2 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2:20; 4:7-12)

7) We believe in the TRINITY – that God is one but three distinct persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26-27; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 10:30)

8) We believe in the CHURCH as the body of Christ, both universal and local. We acknowledge the commission of Christ to the church to proclaim the Good News to all people and to make disciples. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26; 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 5:19-20; 11:2; Ephesians 1:22-23, 5:25-27)

9) We acknowledge the command of Christ to love our neighbors, resulting in service to the church and society. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; 2:41-42; 18:8)

10) We believe that the KINGDOM OF GOD has come to us in the person of Jesus Christ on earth and  that He will return to earth to complete the establishment of God’s eternal reign over all creation. (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29; Titus 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 1:10; 4:13-18; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 3:10, 19:11-16, 20:1-6,12-13)
