We know that visiting a church for the first time can be quite overwhelming. Here at Ebenezer Church, we want you to feel at home. Ebenezer Church has existed for over 135 years and it has been the desire of every generation that we as the family of GOD grow closer to each other more and more as we worship together. Ebenezer comes from 1 Samuel 7:12 and it simply means, “The Helping Stone”. We believe that the founders of this church had a purpose for choosing this particular name. It is important to us that we continue this legacy of spreading the Word of GOD, the Love of GOD, and the Message of Salvation through Jesus Christ to all who enter these doors today and far beyond. We would love to have you call Ebenezer your home church! Become a part of “The Helping Stone”.

Our Beliefs

1. The Triune God
In the name of God, we declare and confess before men that we believe in the only true God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; that these three are one–the Father in the Son, the Son in the Father, and the Holy Ghost equal in essence or being with both; that this triune God created the heavens and the earth and all that in them is, visible as well as invisible, and furthermore sustains, governs, protects, and supports the same.
2. Jesus Christ, the Son
We believe in Jesus Christ; that He is very God and man; that He became incarnate by the power of the Holy Ghost in the Virgin Mary and was born of her; that He is the Savior and Mediator of the whole human race, if they with full faith in Him accept the grace proffered in Jesus; that this Jesus suffered and died on the cross for us, was buried, arose again on the third day, ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God to intercede for us; and that He shall come again at the last day to judge the quick and the dead.
3. The Holy Spirit, Comforter and Guide
We believe in the Holy Ghost; that He is equal in being with the Father and the Son, and that He comforts the faithful, and guides them into all truth.
4. The Church
We believe in a holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
5. The Holy Bible and Salvation
We believe that the Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God; that it contains the only true way to our salvation; that every true Christian is bound to acknowledge and receive it with the influence of the Spirit of God as the only rule and guide; and that without faith in Jesus Christ, true repentance, forgiveness of sins, and following after Christ, no one can be a true Christian.
6. The Salvation Message
We also believe that what is contained in the Holy Scriptures, to wit: the fall in Adam and redemption through Jesus Christ, shall be preached throughout the world.
7. The Christian Ordinances
We believe that the ordinances, viz. baptism and the remembrance of the sufferings and death of our Lord Jesus Christ, are to be in use and practiced by all Christian societies; and that it is incumbent on all the children of God particularly to practice them; but the manner in which ought always to be left to the judgment and understanding of every individual. Also, the example of washing feet is left to the judgment of everyone to practice or not; but it is not becoming of any of our preachers or members to traduce any of their brethren whose judgment and understanding in these respects is different from their own, either in public or in private. Whosoever shall make himself guilty in this respect shall be considered a traducer of his brethren, and shall be answerable for the same.
