Who we are
We are Ethiopian Evangelical Christian Church in Austin, TX (EECC). Our members are mostly Christians from Ethiopia and Eritrea. We are very happy to welcome anyone who believes in Jesus Christ or is interested in getting to know our Lord and Savior and to worship with us.
Ethiopia (Ge'ez: ኢትዮጵያ ʾĪtyōṗṗyā) is a country located in the Horn of Africa. It is the second-most populous nation in Africa, with over 85.2 million people, and the tenth-largest by area, with its 1,100,000 km2. The capital is Addis Ababa. Ethiopia is bordered by Eritrea to the north, Sudan to the west, Djibouti and Somalia to the east, and Kenya to the south.
Ethiopia has close historical ties to all three of the world's major Abrahamic religions. It was one of the first Christian countries in the world, having officially adopted Christianity as the state religion in the 4th century. It still has a Christian majority, but a third of the population is Muslim.
Ethiopia is a country with thousand years of history, but here in our church our history is HIS story!
Come and worship with us!
What we believe:
The Bible the inerrant Word of God revealed for the purpose of salvation and is the source and foundation of faith.
The Church is a body of believers who are born-again through faith in Christ.
God is eternal, omnipotent and unchanging and lives eternally in the person of trinity: God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God created the universe and every thing in it. God created man in his image.
God the Father in his love made a covenant with the people of Israel. In keeping with this covenant, God also prepared a way of salvation for all humanity through His Son Jesus Christ. To all those that accept Jesus Christ and repent their sins, he gave authority to be the children of God.
God the Son. Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary. He is God Almighty and complete human being. Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, was crucified on the cross for our sin and was resurrected bodily from the dead. He was ascended to heaven and sits at the right hand of God interceding for our sin. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between man and God.
God the Holy Spirit is the spiritual personality of the trinity. The Holy Spirit convicts the world about sin and righteousness and judgment. He indwells in believers and leads them to all truth. He encourages and gives them power to live the live of holiness. Until the return of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit will fill Christians with spiritual gifts of grace to enable them to serve Jesus with power, authority and love.
Salvation in the beginning, man was made without sin. But when man rebelled against God, he died a spiritual death and was separated from God. The only way man can have eternal life is by being born again through faith in Jesus Christ through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. This is affected when a person accepts Jesus Christ as his/her personal Savior and testifies to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in his life.
Holiness. It is appropriate for believers to separate them self from the worthless things of the world and live a life of righteousness in Jesus for the Glory of God.
