As a fellowship of Christians, we strive to live out Jesus’ commands. Specifically, we look to “Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, all of your soul, all of your mind,” Matthew 22:37, and its related reading in Luke 10:27, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself,'” as the basis for our mission. Thus, East Grand Church strives to Love God, Love Others and Serve the World.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and is His love letter to all people. The Bible is the complete, final, reliable and authoritative revelation to humankind.
We believe there is one divine being who has existed eternally in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy spirit. We believe He is the all-powerful and all-knowing creator of the universe.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only son of God, who is equal to God as part of the trinity. Jesus chose voluntarily to take on human flesh, was conceived of the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary to be born on earth both fully human and fully divine. He lived a sinless life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose in bodily form from the grave three days later, ascended into heaven — where he mediates as our High Priest — and will return again to earth someday.
We believe the Holy spirit is equal with the Father and Jesus. God gives us the Holy Spirit as a guide and comforter. The Holy Spirit indwells in each Christian when they are baptized and acts in our lives to transform us into the image of God as we yield our will to His.
Salvation is a free gift of God. All have sinned, and all can be saved, but only through God’s grace. The death of Jesus on the cross is the only sufficient payment for our sins. Salvation is available for any who put their trust in Jesus as Savior (Romans 3:23 and John 3:16) and are obedient to His teaching of faith, repentance, confession of faith and being baptized to wash away their sins. (Acts 2:38)
