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 God preserves His Word providentially through translations that accurately reflect the accumulated manuscript evidence. These would include, but are not limited to, the NASB, ESV, KJV, NKJV among others.
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.
That God created mankind male and female and established the covenant of marriage between one man and one woman for life.
The fall of mankind through Adam’s sin.
That Jesus Christ is God’s eternal, only begotten Son, fully God and fully man, 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 having defeated death through His resurrection.
That all of salvation is a gift of grace in Christ alone. Those regenerated are made alive in Christ unto repentance and faith.
That God gives the Holy Spirit to seal, teach, and empower believers to live according to His will in Christ Jesus.
That the sign gifts existed to authenticate the apostolic teaching of the resurrected Christ and the establishment of the church. With the completion of the canon of Scripture, the sign gifts have ceased and Scripture is the sufficient revelation for all of life.
That Christ established the Church to exist as 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 Scriptural call to worship, doctrinally sound psalms and hymns, Scripture reading, collective affirmation of truth, pastorally-led prayer, expositional preaching of God’s Word, and a Scriptural benediction. We seek to use theologically sound hymns arranged to appropriately reverent tunes.
Our families worship together as we believe this is the Scriptural model for communicating the truth of God’s Word and the gospel of Jesus Christ from one generation to another. We encourage children to participate by bringing their Bibles, singing the hymns, and listening to the preaching of the Word.
Children are welcome to remain in the services. However, a staffed nursery is available for children three and under.
Before our worship service, we enjoy a time of interactive instruction in the Word. A class is available for younger children. Upper elementary and high schoolers are taught along with the adults.
