How does your church help those in need?
Ebenezer Baptist Church is committed to community transformation. We extend ourselves into the local community by providing a food pantry, prison outreach, and resources to our Katrina families and other families within the community, including scholarships to students and many other individuals who are in need of assistance in the community. Ultimately, our purpose for serving those in need is to bring glory to God. When people see God’s love exemplified through his people in practical ways, it proves that God’s love can prevail over selfishness and indifference. Our goal is to be a light in the community. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16) We are a Christian community within the community that transforms the community.
