Our slogan “Equipping Disciples to Show the Way”is a thumbnail sketch of EBI purpose. The first word of the slogan, taken from Ephesians 4:12, states the primary purpose of our institution. We exist to provide tools and training for Christ-followers (disciples) so that they may point others to Jesus, Who is the Way. “The Way” also reflects the path that Christ would have us follow. “...for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ ...” Ephesians 4:12
