 OUR MISSION

We exist to make Jesus known.

fellowshipiconLOVE

 
 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. The second most important is similar: ‘Love your neighbor as much as you love yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39). At Esther Baptist Church, we strive to live out the greatest commandment everyday in everything that we do. 

outreachGROW

 “But grow in spiritual strength and become better acquainted with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be all glory and splendid honor, both now and forevermore” (2 Peter 3:18). At Esther Baptist Church, we strive to grow closer to the Lord and each other. This is done through worship, biblical preaching, bible studies and fellowship events.  

handsREACH

 “You are the world’s light—a city on a hill, glowing in the night for all to see. Don’t hide your light! Let it shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father (Matthew 5:14-16). At Esther Baptist Church, we strive to reach those who are hurting and searching for answers. EBC, has been a “homing signal” for individuals that are looking for healing in many areas of their life. 

 


Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

II Corinthians 5:20

I’M NEW HERE

 
We ‘re glad that you have stopped by to learn what we're all about. We hope you see our passion for Jesus and His gospel. He is the only reason that we do what we do — preaching, children's ministry, outreach, and even singing.
 

Here is what we believe as a church….

Inerrancy in completeness of scripture
“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;”
(II Tim. 3:16 (NASB))

“I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18–19 (NASB))

The Virgin Birth
“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.”Matthew 1:18 (NASB)
 
The Trinity
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.” II Corinthians 13:14 (NASB)
 
The Deity of Jesus
“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”John 1:14 (NASB)
 
The Substitutional Death of Jesus
“…and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.” I Peter 2:24 (NASB)
 
The Power of Jesus’ Blood
“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace.”
Ephesians 1:7 (NASB)
 
The Bodily Resurrection from the Grave
“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,…” I Corinthians 15:3–4 (NASB)
 
Jesus’ Work in Heaven: Intercession
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:14–16 (NASB)
 
The Bodily Return of Christ to the Earth
“They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11 (NASB)
 
Man is Sinful
“…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,…” Romans 3:23 (NASB)
 
Salvation is by Faith Alone
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:8–9 (NASB)
 
Eternal Security of Believers
And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.

 

This Is Written That You May Know

These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life I John 5:11–13 (NASB)

Man Lives Once But is Judged
 
“And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,…”Hebrews 9:27 (NASB)
 
Man that Rejects Jesus is Eternally Damned
 
“…dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.”
II Thessalonians 1:8
 
Here are some General FAQ’s
What time are your services?
How long are they?

 

We have two Sunday Morning services: one at 8:30 AM and one at 10:45 AM. They typically run about an hour and fifteen minutes (give or take a few minutes). 

What should I wear? 

Come as you are! At Esther Baptist Church, you will see anything from very casual to somewhat dressy. What you wear isn’t really important. We are more concerned for you as a person than for what you wear!

What kinds of things do you do in your services?

We usually begin with an opportunity to welcome new guest, followed by giving an opportunity for others to sow into what God is doing here through a time of offering. Then we pause and turn to God and intercede for many things that are our on hearts. Once we pray we greet each other in the name of the Lord and then we have a time of music and singing, followed by a message and then concluded by a time where people can pray together or individually. Sometimes there might be a video, a story from an individual of how God is moving in their life, a special song or a skit that has been prepared by our drama team. 

What is the music like?

There is a wide age-range of people who attend Esther Baptist Church, and the music reflects that. On any given Sunday you will probably hear both classic hymns and current worship songs. 

Do you have anything for kids?

We sure do! We have age appropriate Sunday School classes: Baby (ages 0-2), Toddler (ages 2-Pre-K), Kindergarten, Grades 1-2,  and Grades 3, 4 and 5.  We also have a children’s church that is in session during the second service on Sunday morning. The classes are all run by volunteers who love God and love kids! 

How big is the church?

Typically, we have about 100 in our 8:30 AM and about 200 in our 10:45 AM service.

Do you Meet any other time besides Sunday mornings?

We have bible study and worship  on Sunday Night from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM and bible study on Wednesday night for all ages from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. 

What are you doing to make a difference to make a difference in the community?

Esther Baptist Church supports a variety of organizations that are making a difference in our local community such as the Pregnancy Resource Center, Sole Hope, Battered Women’s Shelter, Middle School Back-Pak Program, Elvins Food Pantry, Shared Blessings, Prison Ministry, Shalom House and the Ministerial Alliance.



Plugged-In

Let's face it: Esther Baptist Church wouldn’t be who we are without you. From the people who greet at the doors every weekend, to the volunteers who minister to our kids every week, we couldn’t do much of anything without the support of all the people who share in our vision, God's vision, for this community.

Church experts tell us that visitors who experience good music and meaningful worship might come back for a second service. Profound teaching and preaching can draw them into a community for up to five years, but if we really want people to stay, to integrate and grow with us, they have to find an outlet to express their personal, individual ministry and talents in a way that is significant to them.

Here at Esther Baptist Church, we want to empower all people to find their unique place of service, that niche in the greater community that gives them freedom and allows them to experience a deeper, active sense of faith through service. Plugged In is our way of facilitating that process, with the added perk of being easy and straightforward.

WORSHIP

The primary purpose of any Worship Team is to give glory to our Lord, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. He is the Alpha and Omega, the God of the Universe who is to be the whole purpose of our lives. He is worthy of all of our worship, and in our church, the responsibility lies with the Worship Team to help create an atmosphere in which people can be led by the Holy Spirit into an encounter with God.

GOTFYM

There are three things that we want to do here at EBC in our Youth Ministry Program
  • To mentor and equip our teens to develop a strong faith not only in, but outside of the church walls
  • To make sure that students are loved and pointed toward Jesus
  • To create a strong community where all of our teens can walk beside each other in their walk
 
Bible School Classes

Our Sunday morning study (9:45 – 10:30 AM) is designed to dive deeper into the Bible. Students have great interaction with teachers and a safe place to ask questions.

  • Downstairs Youth Room- 9-12
  • Middle School Room- 5-8
 
Wednesdays

Every Wednesday evening, all students that are in grades 6-12 meet in the Youth Room for a time of Bible Study.  We usually will do a Study Series that will last 4-5 weeks or we may have a comedy night or just a hang-out night with a small study.

 The ministry of bereavement is a service ministry to persons who have lost a loved one. The purpose of the bereavement at EBC is to assure that no church member will grieve alone. Primarily this is done through preparing a meal for the family after the funeral service.
