There’s still time!

There’s still time – but not much – to sign up for one of the new modules which start this week – Spiritual Disciplines, Evangelism, John’s Letters, Doctrine of Scripture or World Religions and Cults.

The Letters of John

Most Christians are probably familiar with John’s Gospel and his Revelation but probably less so with his three letters which come almost at the end of our New Testament. Yet these three short letters have so much with which to instruct and guide us today. Each term we try and run one module that is more devotional as well as teaching, and John’s Letters are our choice for the summer term, so if you would like some online devotional fellowship…

The Bible

Here’s a reminder of another of the subjects we will be teaching in our new summer term which starts next week The Bible makes some remarkable claims for itself.  It is important, therefore, that we have the right attitude towards the Bible and know as much about it as we possibly can. All these questions and more we will address over ten two-hour classes on Wednesday afternoons, from 2.00 – 4.00pm, starting on April 17th. The classes will be held…

Is This Your Question As Well?

One of the questions we get asked most frequently is along the lines of: “I want to take part in this virtual classroom and study this subject but I am not free at the time it is being held. What can I do?” Our answer is simple – because all our virtual classrooms are recorded and notes provided, you can still register and then watch the recording and follow the notes at a time of your choosing.

Spiritual Disciplines

“The spiritual disciplines are those practices found in Scripture that promote spiritual growth among believers in the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are habits of devotion, habits of experiential Christianity that have been practiced by God’s people since biblical times.” (Don Whitney) Part of the very DNA of EBC is that we are committed not just to information, i.e. the teaching of good solid biblical truth, but to transformation, seeing that truth mature and equip Christians for effective, God glorifying life and…
