EGBC is committed to the authority and sufficiency of God's Word. By that we mean that God's Word is authoritative because God wrote it (2 Timothy 3:16), and that God's Word is all we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3).

The distinguishing mark of EGBC is our commitment to the Word of God. As the apostle Paul said, "We do not follow cleverly divised myths", but rather we "preach the Word" (2 Timothy 4:1-4). All that we do at EGBC is shaped by our commitment to reading, teaching, preaching, discussing, and applying the Word of God.
