God’s Ways Are Not Our Ways – Pst Francis Munene

About Us

ECC is a non denominational church based in the Dallas, Texas, area.   Our model is based on a structure of Excellence, Integrity and Authenticity.   As a church we shall endeavor to build ourselves up within the precincts of excellence, integrity and authenticity.

Excellence

The Lord is constantly molding us each into a vessel that fits to the purpose for which He has for every single one of us  (Jeremiah 18:1-6).   His goal is to achieve an excellent fulfillment of His purpose on earth through His people.   Whatever you do,  work at it with all your heart,  as working for the Lord,  not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.   It is the Lord Christ you are serving  (Col 3:23-24).   Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work,  nor device,  nor knowledge, nor wisdom,  in the grave,  where you go  (Ecclesiastes 9:10).

Integrity

(Deuteronomy 30:11-14; Psalm 119:11)  God has placed us in a world full of choices.    It is important how we decide to exercise our freedom of choice.  We ought to accept the consequences of our actions.   In other words, integrity is more complicated than just not stealing and not lying etc.   It’s what we do when no one is looking.   That’s where real freedom resides,  and that’s where we often compromise our integrity.

Authenticity

In order to have relevance and impact as Christian believers we must learn and understand who Jesus Christ, the head of the church, is.   We must clearly understand what His mission on this earth was.

The Body

The body is a unit,  though it is made up of many parts;  and though all its parts are many,  they form one body.   So it is with Christ.   For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body whether Jews or Greeks,  slave or free and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.   Now the body is not made up of one part but of many.   If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand,  I do not belong to the body,”  it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.   And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye,  I do not belong to the body,”  it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.   If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be?   If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?   But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.   If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body. ( 1 Corinthians 12:12-20)
