Emirates Baptist Church International
EBCI was established in 1997 by a group of 28 believers, led by the Holy Spirit to establish a New Testament church with the Lord & Savior Jesus Christ as her head, for the purpose of worshipping God, witnessing to His saving grace, living as Christians in this world, and ministering to the needs of people, to the glory of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Ever since, this body of believers has been striving to fulfill the purpose for which Christ established His church.
The congregation meets in a compound where two adjoining villas have been leased and modified to create a large space for worship services, and other rooms in the villas that are used for various ministries. The weekly worship services are held on Friday which is the official weekend.
The Statement of Faith and Statement of Baptist Principles clearly articulate what EBCI stands for and are available to its members.
EBCI is led by Pastors and Deacons who have been elected by the congregation. The focus of the Pastors is the ministry of the Word, while the Deacons focus is on the ministry of the table and at the same time assisting the Pastors.
