Who Are We?
We’re a bunch of ordinary Central Coast people who have been rescued by an extraordinary God.
Though we don’t deserve it, we know the living God and are known by him – a relationship that changes everything! And it’s all because of Jesus – who he is and what he’s done.
At EV we’re really keen to see more and more people on the Central Coast come to know God through Jesus as we do.
‘EV’ stands for ‘Evangelical’ – which means we take the Bible very seriously. We believe that God speaks and reveals himself by His Spirit through His Word and so we are committed to solid teaching from the scriptures week in and week out.
Our weekend gatherings are special times together when our church family meet as one. We hear what God has to say to us in His Word, the Bible. It is always a time of encouragement and challenge. It leads to the praise and glad service of God.
We also get to know and encourage each other over coffee. We build loving friendships and help each other live lives that truly honour the One who died for us.
At times we rejoice and at times we hurt or are disappointed. We struggle with many of life’s difficult issues just like others around us.
However, there is one thing that sets us apart. As Christians, we all share the most profound experience imaginable. God has forgiven us of our all our failings on the basis of Jesus’ death on the cross, in our place, two thousand years ago! This forgiveness enables us to live new lives of love and hope. And to share the message with the community around us.

Who is Jesus?
Who is Jesus? The question is searching but not as important as the answer!
Time magazine once referred to Jesus as “the most persistent symbol of purity, selflessness and love in the history of humanity”. Judging from the many references to his teaching which have entered into our everyday language, his impact on our world is immense.
But what did Jesus claim about Himself?
His claims were staggering. Although He was a man revered for his self-sacrificing humility, He called Himself ‘the bread of life and said that He gives ‘the water of life. He also claimed that He is the judge of the living and the dead and that His death is the key to our life, not just now but for all eternity! As dramatic as they are, these claims received incredible support when Jesus rose from the dead.
Can all this be true? The evidence is compelling.
