Everlasting Life Christian Church was birthed on September 21, 2009 as a small conference call Bible Study. It quickly grew from local participants to state-wide, and eventually country wide callers. A decision was made in January 2011 to move forward in ministry and begin official incorporation and tax-exempt status as a Church under Federal and NC State Law.
Everlasting Life Christian Church (ELCC) derives its name from John 4:14 and Romans 6:22. Both verses speak of an eternal life awaiting all those who walk in righteousness and live according to the Word of God until Jesus Christ returns.
“But the water I give them takes away thirst altogether. It becomes a perpetual spring within them, giving them eternal life.” – John 4:14
“But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life.” – Romans 6:22
ELCC is a multi-cultural church where all races and ethnicities are welcomed and loved.
ELCC is a Body of Spirit filled, baptized Believers whose focus is changing the hearts and minds of people through faith and works. We accomplish this through training, teaching, preaching and evangelism. Our desire is to see the lives of everyday people changed through the preached Word of Jesus Christ.
ELCC is the Church, the Bride of Christ.
ELCC is a teacher and servant equipping every man, woman and child with the tools necessary to live meaningful, purpose driven lives and to become godly leaders in their homes and communities.
ELCC is a non-denominational church who believes in preaching the Full Gospel (from Genesis to Revelations). We will not stop our endeavor and mandate to impact and impart into each and every life until Jesus Christ returns for His Bride (us, the Church).
Our mission is to train, teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those in our community through outreach and love according to Mark 16:15-18. This involves ministry to the whole person – body, mind and spirit.
Our vision is to see lives in our communities changed. We accomplish this by being moral and godly examples to those in our communities. Through word, deed and life-style we become the light to those around us and a voice in the wilderness. We express this light through our love and outreach. We seek to serve our community by being a resourceful ministry and outreach to it. Our desire is that through our word, deed and life-style souls are saved. We want to see God glorified and his Son magnified through our lives and ministry.
Here’s a list of a few of our ministry goals:
Then Jesus said to them, "Verily, verily, I say to you, except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh, and drink my blood, has ETERNAL LIFE; and I will raise him up at the last day." From this time on many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus to the twelve, "Will you also go away?" Then Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, where will we go? You have the words to ETERNAL LIFE."
