college & young adult
Our aim and intent for our young adults is captured well in a modern-English paraphrase of the apostle Paul's words to his young protégé, Timothy: "And don't let anyone put you down because you're young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity" (1 Timothy 4:12, ESV)
What We Are About
The Young Professionals Ministry at EBC Raleigh strives to glorify and honor Jesus Christ by raising up disciples to impact the world for His wonderful and glorious Name. We believe the best way to raise disciples is the Acts 2:42 model which is:
"And they devoted themselves to the apostle's teaching,
We believe that the word of God should be the blueprint for our lives and devote ourselves to its teachings. Not to be just hearers of God's word but also to be active doers of it. We come together for God's word as a group during Sunday school and small groups.
and the fellowship,
We believe that in order for us to grow in Christ together that we should do life together as a group. We do this by planning a once a month activity in which we get to pour into each other’s lives.
to the breaking of bread,
We believe in the aspect of sharing meals together as a group which deepens our relationship with one another. We do a once a month lunch which is provided by members of Emmanuel usually within their homes. The benefit of this is that we do not become a silo group but that we form relationships within the larger life of the church, which gives us a greater appreciation of the work of our Lord and Savior Jesus.
and the prayers"
We believe in the power of prayer. We devote everything we do in prayer for the reason that it knits our hearts closer together but more importantly it knits our hearts closer to the heart of God.
