The sections below outline ECBC’s core beliefs and the normal flow of our services. You are welcome to contact us using the form below if you have any questions.
What we Believe
The inspiration and infallibility of the Bible and the Bible’s timeless communication of truth providing all that is necessary for life and godliness.
That there is one God existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The literal account of creation by the direct act of God in six, 24-hour, solar days.
The fall of man through Adam’s sin.
That Jesus Christ is God’s Son and fulfilled all righteousness through His perfect life, made full atonement for sin through His death, and offers eternal life to all who believe in Him through His resurrection.
That salvation exists only through a personal faith in Christ Jesus.
That God gives the Holy Spirit to seal, teach, and empower believers to live according to His will in Christ Jesus.
That Christ established the Church to exist through autonomous local assemblies.
That God gifts men to serve and lead local assemblies as pastor/elders and deacons.
That the Church will exist as the ordained repository for upholding the truth until Christ’s return.
What to Expect
The body of believers at Eastside Community Bible Church desires to reverently worship Christ by edifying one another through song and giving careful attention to God’s Word. Our services include a worship theme, public prayer, Scripture reading, songs, hymns, spiritual songs, and a Bible-based (expository) message with contemporary application. We seek to use theologically sound hymns arranged to appropriately reverent tunes.
Our services normally flow in the following manner:
Welcome and introduction of worship theme
- Opening prayer
- Hymns of praise
- Bible reading
- Pastoral prayer
- Bible message
- Corporate singing to edify each other and glorify God
Because the Bible emphasizes Christian fellowship, we follow our service with a lunch together. It is informal and a time to get to know one another better and carry one another’s burdens.
Before our worship service, we enjoy a time of interactive instruction in the Word. We desire this time to prepare our hearts and minds to worship the Lord together. The time includes review of a passage or passages we are memorizing together, instruction in doctrine, and the practical implications of truth.
