|Statement of Faith|
At Eastmont Church, we believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, fully inerrant in the original autographs, and supremely authoritative for daily living. We affirm the historic doctrines of Scripture as God has revealed them in His Word (II Tim. 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21).
God and Jesus Christ
We believe in one God, Who exists eternally in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19). We believe in the full Deity of the Son, that is our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His substitutionary death for our sins, His bodily resurrection, and in His imminent, pre-millennial return (Col. 2:9; Phil 2:6-8; Luke 1:34-35; II Cor. 5:21; John 20:27-29; I Thess. 4:16-17).
We believe that all people by nature and by practice are sinful and are thus separated from fellowship with God (Rom. 3:23; Rom. 5:12). Utterly helpless before a Holy God, each man can only be restored to true fellowship with Him by trusting in Jesus Christ’s substitutionary death for eternal salvation (Rom. 5:8; John 3:16). No reformation however great, no morality however high, no rite however administered, no effort however earnest can help men merit eternal life; rather, each individual can be saved only by God’s grace when he receives by faith the gift of eternal life through trusting in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior from sin (Eph. 2:8-9). By humbly acknowledging your sinfulness and trusting in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of all your sins, you become a Christian and a possessor of eternal life.
We believe that each individual who has trusted in Jesus Christ as their Savior is immediately indwelt by the Holy Spirit of God, possesses eternal life which he will never lose, and is enabled by Him to live a Godly life through obedience to Him (I Cor. 12:13; John 5:24; Eph. 1:3; II Cor. 3:18).
We believe that all who have trusted in Jesus Christ as Savior since the day of Pentecost until His return comprise the universal Church, a unified, spiritual organism under the Headship of Christ (Acts 2:42-47; I Cor. 12:12-27; Eph. 4:3-10). The local church is the visible expression of the reality of that universal Church. Every believer in the local assembly is vital to its total ministry. We at Eastmont are a community of believers bound together in love for a Christian witness to the world for the glory of God through joint worship, mutual fellowship, observance of water baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and continual edification and evangelism (I Cor. 11:17-32; I Cor. 12:12-17; Eph. 4:1-16; I Pet. 4:10).
