Benevolence is our opportunity to assist individuals or households experiencing material poverty. We help to improve their lives by building on their actions, gifts, and resources. Truly helping people experiencing material poverty requires a much greater commitment of time, resources, and energy than the standard method of solely providing a check or gift card. We are moving away from practices that create dependency and moving toward approaches that promote long-term positive change. Poverty alleviation is a process in which the materially poor and the materially non-poor are empowered, and the good news is revealed through relational interactions. We are to be ambassadors of Christ, proclaiming and demonstrating the kingdom of God that has come and will come on earth. Jesus calls us to share the gospel (the good news) with the poor, to proclaim release to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor (Lk. 4:18-19).  

Members of EBC spend time alongside men and women struggling with homelessness and addiction. We build intentional relationships and show the love of Christ in tangible ways to individuals regardless of their condition or circumstance. We may do this through serving meals, having conversations, or through programs that promote healthy life changes.

We partner with local schools and Christian organizations in the city to care for urban and suburban children by meeting physical and spiritual needs through gospel-centered ministries. Carrie Steele Pitts and Kimberly Elementary School have been designated as urban focus areas for EBC Cares.  

Everyone wants their community to flourish. We empower community members to improve food access by providing free food of choice, community connections, and welcoming culture. We operate a food pantry, but we are offering more than food. We provide a dignifying experience through our online food ordering system, and we have coaches for community members who desire one-on-one support for additional help. 

At Elizbeth Baptist Church (EBC), we glorify God by making disciples and multiplying churches among all nations, beginning in greater Atlanta. In Global Outreach, we serve EBC by equipping and mobilizing church members to make disciples of Jesus Christ and multiply churches among all nations. We are uniquely placed in the Atlanta, GA area and take our responsibility to effectively steward our resources for God’s kingdom seriously. 

We encourage and provide opportunities for EBC members to respond to spiritual needs around the world. Each ministry, discipleship group, family, and individual has a role to play in making disciples and multiplying churches among all nations. Everyone can pray, give, go, or send others. We send EBC members to make disciples and multiply churches in cross-cultural contexts. 

The local church is the center of sending God’s people to serve internationally. Therefore, we prioritize sending out members from our church family. We connect EBC missionaries with opportunities, among unreached people, in regions where there is little to no access to the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Several upcoming entrepreneurs are supported to start innovative businesses that impact the community.

EBC Cares and various partners offer an urban immersion experience in some of Atlanta's most impoverished neighborhoods. EBC challenges volunteers to serve the marginalized by “being with” instead of “doing for” families transitioning out of homelessness. Opportunities abound to have earthly and kingdom impacts by hosting and helping run a camp for kids.
