We invite you to discover a warm, God-honoring place with the goal of helping to connect you in a closer walk with Jesus Christ. EBC seeks to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ's coming Kingdom (Matthew 28:19-20), and to share with those who do not know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior God's love and redeeming grace, and His call for repentance and spiritual change; yet to those who reject Him, His impending judgement. We strive to practice original Christianity as taught and practiced by the Apostles and outlined in Acts 2:42: "And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers." To that end, we:
Elkmont Baptist Church
- Concentrate on the teachings of the Apostles' Doctrine from both the Old and New Testament as well as those things taught by Christ
- Encourage Fellowship one with another as members of a family
- Break bread together by sharing the Lord's Supper monthly to
"remember Him until He comes"
- Encourage prayer for one another, our community, and country
EBC is all about equipping and inspiring people to walk by faith, not by sight. As a small country church nestled by the entrance to Elkmont Rural Village, we work hard to make each person feel welcome to our church "home." No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, we invite you to come and join us for our main Sunday morning gathering, or on Wednesday night for prayer and encouragement. If you do, we trust that you will find friendly people, an inspiring service, and real-life issues discussed from the Bible.
EBC is a local body of believers that exists to bring glory to God through the growing of a biblical, spiritual family of fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ who make disciples. As such, we feel closely associated with the Church at Philadelphia in Revelation 3:7-12 where Christ opens doors of ministry opportunity. We strive to assist our members by supporting them in their individual callings.
The essentials of our beliefs focus on the authority and inerrancy of Scripture; the Trinity; the full deity of Jesus Christ; the total depravity of humanity; the substitutionary atonement and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ; salvation by faith alone in Christ alone; assurance of salvation; and the certain, physical return of Christ to setup His millennial kingdom on this earth.
