About Ellaville Baptist Church

Ellaville Baptist Church is a smaller church with a long history in downtown Ellaville, GA. We have a membership that spans all generations, young and old. The church is a gracious, generous, hospitable, serving, and eager church to fulfill the Great Commission. We are located in a very small, very rural town in Southwest Georgia near Americus, Georgia and located about fifty miles from larger towns Columbus, Albany, and Macon, GA. With thousands far from God in our small community, there is much potential and a great harvest in our area.

We are eager to find God's next worship leader for EBC. We have a faithful choir, small team of musicians, numerous soloists, and upgraded audio and video equipment. Our church enjoys a blended music style of traditional and contemporary music, old and modern hymns, and southern gospel. In worship we use songs from, but not limited to, artists such as The Gettys, Gaither, City Alight, Chris Tomlin, and Matt Papa. Our church also has untapped potential with numerous church members who have vocal, instrumental, and tech gifts that can be further utilized to serve the church in corporate worship. We are eager for this ministry to be developed and bear fruit.

EBC is a SBC church, faithfully holding to the BFM, 2000 as our confession. We preach expositionally. We aim to make disciples of all generations that are sent out to reach and make more disciples in our neighborhoods and the nations.
