About Us

Who We Are

We are a group of people who desire to know God through Jesus and the Bible as we are led by the Holy Spirit. We are an autonomous church body governed by the Word of God and have Jesus Christ as ourĀ Head and Leader. We were Established in 1981 with our late pastor Jim Gordon.

We are a community who have placed our faith on the Lord Jesus Christ for the salvation of our soulsĀ and have come together as a local church body just like the Scriptures teach. We are a family here at EB and we are excited to see God change lives.

We are about teaching God’s Word just like He intended us to. We are about living out who God created us to be with purpose as we learn in His Word. We are about praying, loving God, worshipping Him, and loving Elyria.
