As a Christian Reformed congregation, Ebenezer is firmly rooted in the Reformed tradition which includes a commitment to the authority of Scripture and biblical preaching. It is also an Evangelical congregation that hopes to see their lives, as well as others in the community, transformed by the Gospel.
Reflecting its origin as an immigrant congregation in a diverse community, Ebenezer serves a diverse community with a growing number of Spanish speaking immigrants. In response, congregational leadership has committed itself to ministering in both Spanish and English.
Going forward the congregation embraces the significance of its name. Truly, the Lord, who has helped Ebenezer for 155 years, will help the congregation going forward.
