Eden Baptist Church is not driven by a consumer orientation. Rather than calibrating our ministry to appeal to the felt needs and current tastes of the unchurched, our focus is to exalt the splendor of God by actively honoring His revealed will for the church. While we certainly fall short of this goal, it is our active purpose to submit to God’s definition of humanity’s deepest needs and to construct a ministry that meets those needs in a biblical manner.
Eden Baptist Church Nursery exists to glorify God by striving to faithfully and lovingly care for infants and toddlers in a safe, clean and orderly manner in order to promote a teaching/worship environment for older children and adults that is free from distraction and concern.
The goal of our children’s ministry is to aid parents in training their children to magnify the splendor of God by joyfully fulfilling His will. In a variety of contexts, children are taught Bible doctrines, spiritual disciplines, Scripture memorization and even how to skillfully sing songs of praise to our God.
The goal of our teen ministry is to influence teens to magnify the splendor of God by loving the Lord with all their hearts and by loving others as they love themselves (Matthew 22:36-40). We seek to provide an organized ministry to teens in which godly adults influence youth for God’s glory by seeking to nurture in our teens a growing intimacy with Christ, the loving service of others, and the faithful evangelization of the lost.
College & Career
The mission of the College & Career fellowship at Eden is to encourage singles and young married couples without children to glorify God by loving him and others with all their heart. To this end, the College & Career fellowship seeks to provide opportunities for active service as the body of Christ, spiritual edification as disciples of Christ, and evangelization of those separated from Christ.
EBC offers adults many opportunities to meet with other Christians to encourage, challenge, and support each other through Bible studies and fellowship. These opportunities are offered throughout the year, month, and week.
The women’s ministry of EBC seeks to exalt Jesus Christ and to enable growth in a woman’s relationship with Him. This distinct purpose steers all our programs. We seek to inspire, encourage and facilitate women’s worship of Jesus Christ in the outworking of authentic, biblical femininity.
The mission of the Focus Fellowship of EBC is to encourage people without the daily care of children to glorify God by loving him and others with all their heart. To this end, Focus Fellowship pursues in community a growing intimacy with God through Jesus, active service as disciples of Jesus in pursuit of the edification of Christ’s body and the evangelization of people separated from Christ.
Eden Baptist Church seeks to extend her evangelistic efforts toward the goal of every tongue and nation joining in magnification of God’s splendor. Our goal is not to support a high quantity of missionaries, but to support a few missionaries well. Routine visits to our supported missionaries (and to others) is an integral aspect of our worldwide missionary support.
