We take our responsibility of sharing the Good News seriously by providing evangelism training, prayer and encouragement in developing genuine one-to-one relationships.
At ESBC we aim to please God by creating a “Culture of Evangelism”. What does that mean? That means that as great as all our programs and events are, we recognize that the best way for a lost person to come to know about salvation is through a genuine one-to-one relationship with a caring believer. Jesus commands ALL of us (not “asks”, but “commands”) to share the good news. At ESBC we relentlessly encourage our members to pray for: 1) Opportunities to share the gospel; 2) Wisdom to see those opportunities; and 3) Courage to take those opportunities to share the gospel. All of our members are encouraged to share the gospel where they live, work, and play. We are not responsible for how a person responds to the Good News—that is the role of the Holy Spirit—but we are responsible to share the Good News in a loving and caring way. At ESBC we continually provide prayer for our members to share, evangelism training to help them get past barriers to sharing, and encouragement and techniques for sharing weekly in our bulletin and monthly through our “Evangelism Ministry Moments”. Please ask how you can be a part of the exhilarating “Culture of Evangelism” at ESBC!
