Jesus said “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8
We believe there are two ways we can be obedient to the Great Commission…
1. Through our Tithes and Offerings
Programs and Ministries within our own church have been budgeted to help reach others in the name of Jesus. Such programs and ministries will include Home Missions to support things like our van ministry, Vacation Bible School, block parties, school supplies, food, help with paying bills, etc.
Our church financially gives to the Southern Baptist Cooperative Program, Alabama Baptist Convention, and Cherokee County Baptist Association. With a happy heart, our church supports foreign and local missions through the Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong offerings. Each year we give to the Gideons to help carry the word of God throughout the world. We also support the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home.
2. Through our Time and Efforts
We do not believe the church should ever be idle. Christ has commanded us to be his hands and feet. Our church goal is to offer ways that our members can serve the Lord by giving to and serving their fellow man. We are committed to encouraging and equipping our members to “go” in the name of Jesus. Planned mission trips and projects are part of our life of following Jesus at ECBC.
