Ebenezer Pentecostal Temple is a family integrated fellowship

We ‘re glad that you have stopped by to learn what we’re all about. We hope you see our passion for Jesus and His gospel. He is the only reason that we do what we do — preaching, children’s ministry, outreach, and even singing.

If you were to ask us to describe ourselves in one sentence, we would say, “We’re a gospel centered, city focused, church community.”

Thanks for looking into our church. When you come and worship with us on Sunday, you will find a warm community of believers, passionate worship, and exciting preaching of God’s Word. Finding a place to call home is very important to you and your family. The Bible says in Psalm 92:13:“Planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God”

We would love to be a part of seeing you and your family flourish with us, in Christ!

The Sunday School Ministry is a Christ-centered ministry providing teaching excellence through Biblical principles and godly character, enabling every kid to reach their potential for lifelong leadership and service.
The Mission of the Sunday School Ministry is to have a positive influence on our world by developing students whose actions authentically reveal the character of Christ—by partnering with families—to spiritually, physically, and socially educate their children in a program of intentional excellence for every age. Luke 2:52

Girls Ministry is a wonderful ministry in our Church that teaches each girl about God’s plan and purpose for their own personal life. It also teaches them how to develop a close walk with Christ. While doing this, they will also learn practical life skills such as how to sew, cook, babysit, balance life issues, learn how to deal with finances and much more.
We have caring, dedicated and wonderful teachers who weekly invest in the lives of our girls, with a desire to see them grow into the godly women that they were created to be!

If you are not attending any church come and visit us every Tuesday at 7:30pm.

Royal Rangers is a mentoring ministry for future men, providing Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys in a highly relational and fun environment.

At Ebenezer Pentecostal Temple (EPT) at the women’s ministry we are daughters, sisters, moms, wives, widows, friends and so much more. We as women, are basically wired for relationships.
At EPT we offer many opportunities to nurture and serve through interactions with God, His word and one another. So when life gets a little busy, overwhelming, you need a lift, or you have a victory to celebrate you know you have a a place of community that will inspire your heart, enrich your life and strengthen your relationships.
We are committed to providing opportunities for women to build lasting relationships with one another through Bible studies, events and service endeavors while drawing on His Word for guidance and strength.


Our purpose is to bring men into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. To unite them in Bible study, prayer, ministry, fellowship, and accountability.
To become a supportive environment that touches the lives of the entire church family. To promote mentoring opportunities that lead to significant vital relationships. To become a magnet for service and a resource for other church ministries and missions through Light for the Lost.
To provide a series of events that will promote fellowship, outreach, and evangelism.
Men’s Ministry Leader – Brother Rodolfo Solorzano.


We lead children into a growing relationship with Christ by creating environments in which children are encouraged to pursue friendship with God, make friends with good people, understand their God-given gifts and begin to use them, and positively affect their friends who do not know Jesus.
