We do so by providing Christ-centered, Holy Spirit led sound Christian teachings.

Opportunities: We endeavor to make all teachings relevant to life and inspiring to the heart and mind. The spiritual walk of each person is different. Our individual journey to becoming all that Christ desires and requires us to be makes it important that we offer a variety of subject matter and methods by which we share the Gospel. The Christian Education Ministry has within its department many and various opportunities and programs to nurture and strengthen the believer’s love and understanding of Almighty God.

The Apostle Paul encouraged the church at Corinth by demonstrating the extravagant generosity of the Macedonians. In spite of the dire circumstances faced by the Macedonians, they made heroic sacrifices above and beyond what any of them thought they could. Ultimately, they boldly went forward, they trusted God and the Bible says “they exceeded expectations” in their generosity. That’s the Ebenezer West way...that’s God’s way!
