for all ages

The atmosphere at EGBC is like that of many homes. Like many families, we are composed of several generations, living and growing under the same roof. We have family gatherings, celebrate holidays, share stories, mourn losses, teach, mentor, and learn together. It is our desire to develop a family of Christ-followers under our roof no matter the age or gender, through our diverse set of ministries.


We are born into God’s family by placing our complete faith and trust in Jesus. After that, EGBC is committed to lifelong learning and growth. The textbook for our growth is the Bible. The goal is life-transformation. In other words, we put into practice what we learn, and don’t just accumulate knowledge.


We develop our family of Christ-followers through Bible teaching classes, small group connections, conferences and seminars, and equipping ministry leaders with resources and professional development to apply Biblical principles to manage contemporary issues.

Bible Discovery Zone: Discovering the Truth in God’s Word!

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”   — Psalm 119:105


The Bible is a light that helps us find the way in this dark world. God’s Word keeps us from stumbling and helps us along the path of life. It is the inspired, written Word that becomes alive in our hearts. It is the ultimate Truth that can never be changed and will never end. We desire to help children learn more of what the Bible is all about.
