“What We Believe ….“
New Members Class –> Starts Thursday, September 2 ” ALL Welcome!“
Whether you are considering a commitment to EastPointe Bible Church (EBC) membership or if you’d just like a brief overview of the Essential doctrines of the faith, please, join Pastor Jim Butler beginning Thursdays, September 2, at 6:30 p.m. in EBC Room 109. This seven-week (7-week) class is a prerequisite for EBC membership and includes introductory doctrines as well as a summary of the membership process.
A more thorough and recommended 21-week Essentials Class is currently being offered on Sunday mornings and will be offered again in January 2022.
1. Admit you’re in need of a Savior, Jesus Christ. (I am a sinner.)
2. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you and your sins on the Cross and rose from the grave. (He is the Savior.)
3. Be willing to turn from your sins and have Jesus Christ become your Savior and Lord. (That’s called repentance.)
4. Be baptized (the Bible practice is immersion) in obedience to His command, as a testimony that your sins are covered by His grace. (Acts 2:38 NASB; “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”)
God Is Love – ‘4 You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. 5 They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.’ 1 John 4:4-6 NASB
This Is Written That You May Know – ‘13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. ‘ 1 John 5:13 NASB
