EASTERN'S CORE VALUES
E – Environment That Reflects The Value Of People
We believe that the environment of our church should reflect God's love for all people and the tremendous worth that each person has in God's sight.
A – Atmosphere Full Of God's Presence
We believe the atmosphere of a church should be filled with the presence of God. This is accomplished by putting an emphasis on prayer and worship and seeking God.
S – Special Concern for Youth and Children
We believe that ministries to children and youth should be given high priority.
T – Teaching and Preaching
We believe practical, relevant, anointed teaching from God’s Inspired Word is the catalyst for transformation in a person’s life.
E – Every Christian a Minister
We believe that every Christian is a minister and is called to the ministry. Through what each Christian is called to do may differ, every Christian should be involved in building God’s kingdom.
R – Reach people for Christ
We believe that taking the Gospel to the whole world is a command from Jesus. We accomplish this through personal soul winning, church outreaches to our community, short term missions trips, and a commitment to both national and world missions.
N – Nurturing To Become Like Christ
We believe that every Christian must continue to become more like Christ. We nurture believers to grow by providing discipleship classes, small groups, ministry to the whole family, and the development of leaders.
