We exist to make followers of Jesus. Our heart is to guide people on the journey to follow Jesus. Nothing excites us more than seeing God move to change lives. At Easthaven, you'll find opportunities to gather to encounter Jesus Christ, grow in your love for God and others, and go out to live and serve in the Holy Spirit's power.
WHAT WE BELIEVE...
We believe the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. (2 Peter 1:20-21)
We believe there is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. (1 Corinthians 8:6)
We believe God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. (Ephesians 4:6)
We believe Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.
We believe He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. (John 14:6; 1 Timothy 2:5)
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He inspired holy men of old to write the Scriptures. Through illumination He enables men to understand truth. (1 John 4:13)
We believe man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race.
We believe salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.
We believe a New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel.
We believe Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
THE LORD'S SUPPER
The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby believers in Jesus Christ, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS
We believe it is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations.
GATHER TO ENCOUNTER CHRIST
At Easthaven we offer three different weekend opportunities to GATHER as the body of Christ for a worship experience. Our services each have a different flavor with the hope that you would feel at home in one of them. You might find a different preacher or worship style, but you will always find the same content and a love for celebrating. Our primary desire is that you would come to worship and have an ENCOUNTER with the living GOD.
MODERN WORSHIP SERVICES:
Music is the latest in modern worship with a splash of the traditional, led by acoustic guitar with lots of volume, drums, and electric guitar.
CLASSIC WORSHIP SERVICES:
Our classic services offer a cheerful daytime environment. Music is a mixture of traditional hymns and contemporary choruses, led by keys and accompanied by guitar and percussion.
