Eleuthera is an island of the Bahamas, and its name is the Greek word for "freedom." Appropriately, the center's theme passage comes from John 8:31-36 which focuses on "truth" (i.e., Christ) being the source of all freedom. To represent this, a welcoming hand symbolizes Christ's invitation to be free through salvation. The starburst represents His power to break the bonds of sin (the chains), while the crimson nail wound and crown of thorns show the crucifixion by which our freedom was purchased.
This was originally a T-shirt design for the WPBC Mission Team that went to the island of Eleuthera in 1996. It has been reprinted several times since, and has been used for stationery and brochures. Here it is reworded and modified for use as "wallpaper." The thorns, hand, and starburst were drawn in pen & ink and then scanned in using a hand scanner. They were then vectorized and imported into CorelDraw where the text and coloring were added.
The logo has changed since the building project. As the training reached completion, the leadership simplified the training center's name (now Eleuthera Bible Training Center) and requested a new logo to emphasize a different focus. To see the re-design, see the EBTC logo on the previous web page.
