Edmonton Chinese Baptist Church is a trilingual (Cantonese, English and Mandarin) church located in Edmonton, Alberta. The City of Edmonton has a population of about 972,223 people and is the capital city of Alberta.
The Mission statement of ECBC is
“To share God’s love and help you fulfill Christ’s purpose for your life.”
Currently, we have about 355 people attending with a distribution of 42% Cantonese, 18% English, 22% Mandarin, and 18% for the Children each Sunday. Our Cantonese and Mandarin Congregations consist mainly of immigrants from Hong Kong and Asia. Our English Congregation consists mostly of younger youths and professionals. The Children’s Ministry has been serving the families of our congregations as well as some families who do not attend our church. We have our Church prayer meeting every Wednesday, as well as prayer groups in different neighborhoods that meet up regularly to pray for our church ministries, and experience God’s grace when we pray.
With the growth within ECBC and to meet the needs in each congregation, the ECBC Church Council has adopted cell group model as the church body structure. Our church supports and promotes the theme of E.C.B.C as:
Evangelism – To preach the gospel;
Conversion – Repentance and transforming to a Godly life;
Baptism – Testimony of faith and commitment to follow Christ Jesus;
Commission – Be Christ’s disciple and foster discipleship.
Our congregations have various small groups covering a spectrum of ages including children, youth, university and college, parenting and various adult and senior groups. ECBC extends services, benefits, resources, time, and prayer, hoping to minister our communities through a variety of Outreach programs. To name a few, we have the College and University Bible Study Groups in the City of Edmonton such as NAIT, Grant MacEwan and University of Alberta, Vocational Bible School (VBS) in summer, sports outreaches, as well as partnering with local para-church ministries such as the Mustard Seed and Hope Mission. We also partner with other community agencies and in inter-church outreaches and programs to better meet our city’s spiritual needs. More recently, we have been working in reaching our local community with special events such as the Chinese New Year’s celebration, E4C free tax returns services, Community Garden, various BBQs, Alpha Course, regular hospital and senior homes visitations within the Chinese Community. Moreover, our Mission Team is also actively involved with local, national and international short-term mission trips every year.
Our church also supports church planting. With the joint effort between Evangel Baptist Church, Agape Chinese Church, and CNBC Church Planting Team, all worked together for the church planting project at Life renewal church, and Trinity Mandarin Baptist Church.
Although Edmonton Chinese Baptist Church consists of mainly Chinese speaking families, we follow God’s calling to reach out to others within our greater community, hoping to provide spiritual support through our church ministries.
