at ecob, we have a unique vision for the city of ephrata.

We are consistently seeking ways to engage our community with the transformative power of Jesus. We make no apologies for our desire to be a family who passionately follow after Jesus. We choose to interact with one another with grace and humility. We seek ways to honor God, and live in the power of the Holy Spirit. We will falter and struggle at times; however, we are family, and at our deepest level, our strongest desire, we love one another and Ephrata. If you are ready for an exciting journey with others like you, dive deep into this family of faith!

In this section of our website, you will find a number of opportunities to get to know the family here. Through What to Expect on your first trip to ECOB, about our Core Values and Beliefs, information about our Team, or even a detailed FAQ about baptism, membership, weddings, structure, and much more, we know you will see what we see – an opportunity to get connected with people who strive to encourage, empower, and energize people for Jesus. So, take a look, get connected, and live the life Jesus wants for you – an abundant life!
