Our sincere desire is to encourage and develop an authentic Christian community that is biblically grounded and culturally relevant.
The concept for a new church work first began in 1987 when a group of believers, sharing a common desire for another evangelical church in the Stony Plain area, met to discuss their vision. The desire was for a strongly Bible-based church.
The church affiliated with the Associated Gospel Churches (AGC) and its first official service was held on January 29, 1989. Regular services began at the Westerra Campus in Stony Plain, however, plans for a building project were soon introduced. In September 1995, the building (our present home) was completed debt free.
We have grown from the original small group to today averaging about 150 on any given Sunday. With a growing congregation—especially in the area of children and youth—EPBC maintains its family-oriented beginnings with a strong sense of tradition. Yet as we continue to grow, our objective is reaching out beyond ourselves to be relevant and involved in the local community and surrounding area.
Thanks for your time and interest, may the Lord bless you as you look for a new church home. If you would like more information or would like to join us for a Sunday worship gathering, you would be most welcome.
