What is Different About Grace Point @ Eagle Heights?

 

Grace Point at Eagle Heights (GPEH) is above all Christ centered – “We proclaim Him” (Col. 1:28).

GPEH is a Bible Believing Church that is firmly rooted in a commitment to the fundamental distinctives of the Christian faith.

We strive to be Bible focused and Christ centered in all we do.  For this reason God’s Word is uppermost in our worship.

We are committed to the expository unfolding of the Word of God.  God’s Word takes precedence in our church over all other forms of authority.  At GPEH the Word of God is preeminent over all things.  We believe the church’s health depends on our consistent pursuit of Biblical knowledge and living.

Evangelism is also central to the life of GPEH.  We have a passion to see souls brought to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ the Lord of glory.

Our worship style is a combination of both contemporary and traditional worship.  We worship because of the marvelous truths about who God is and what He has done through Jesus Christ for His people.  We desire our worship to be genuine, passionate, and heartfelt.  We desire for our worship to be God centered not man centered.  We sing songs because they glorify God, not simply because we like them. Therefore, every song undergoes a Biblical litmus test so that we sing only that which we believe is truly reflected in Scripture.
We believe the older children at GPEH should be in corporate worship and hear the preaching of God’s Word.  Men, women, boys, & girls of all ages benefit from hearing the Word of God and exalting God through song… together.

Our church is committed  to giving at least 20% to missions. We support a variety of works in places nearby and abroad, like Sudan, Kenya, Russia, Mexico, and more. We help send at least one mission team out every year to do short-term mission work.

We believe in the Great Commission and our responsibility to take the gospel to every creature.

 

Decision Making to the Glory of God

Did you know 90% of the choices you make as a Christian involve areas where Scripture says surprisingly little? What you wear, where you go, how you spend your free time—you won’t find many explicit instructions in the Bible. But you can find plenty of rules and strictures in the various spheres of evangelicalism, many of them unhelpful and even harmful (and not only in the fundamentalist camp).

Of course Scripture forbids all clear-cut sins such as lying …

Discernment Between Truth and Error

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; and this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the wo …

Fifteen Ways to Know you are Growing in Holiness

Original Article fund here

Over the past few weeks I have been reading Edward Welch’s new book A small book about a big problem. Although I wouldn’t have described myself as someone who struggled with anger this book has revealed how much and how often I do fall short in this area.

All in all it is a book that I recommend everyone read. It is a short book with fifty very short chapters. Designed to help you focus each day on a various aspect of anger, patience and peace. I truly appreciate Welch’s approach in helping people grow in this area.

Perhaps the most encouraging thing about this book is its long-term focus. Welch isn’t interested in short-term fixes but rather focuses on the heart and teaches the reader to realize that the fight against anger is a life-long fight.

At the end of the book he offers fifteen encouragements. Fifteen different examples that the reader can hang onto so that he can see growth in his sanctification. These specifically apply to the problem of anger, but I thought they provide a helpful blueprint for dealing with any sin. We should be constantly fighting against sin, and going to war with particular sins in our lives. These fifteen examples will prove helpful in our ability to notice growth when going to war against our flesh.

How to Handle Conflict in the Church

church%20conflict.001The church should be the best in the world at handling conflict. We were taught by Jesus exactly how it is to be done. Yet we often side step the issue. We gossip. We talk about other people rather than to people. We avoid conflict.

If we handled conflict humbly, gently, and bravely, the church would be in much better shape. Plus, our testimony before the watching world would be better. So, how exactly did Jesus instruct Christians to handle conflict within the body of Christ?

What Saving Faith Looks Like

What Saving Faith Looks Like

It is important to understand that saving faith is not simply believing some historical fact with one’s mind. For example, we believe that George Washington was the first president of the United States and that Hitler ruled Germany in World War II and that Mahatma Gandhi lived in India. But such beliefs do not change the lives of those who believe. Likewise, many people believe that Jesus Christ lived long ago and that He did many wonderful t …

What the Church Needs Now is Love

GREATEST COMMAND

34But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together.
35One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question,testing Him,
36“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”
37And He said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’
38“This is the great and foremost commandment. Matthew 22:34–38

How to Get in the Game

from John MacArthur, www.GTY.org

When I played college football, my coaches constantly drilled our team with the admonition: “Play your position!” They had to repeat it often because when we saw the play develop toward another place on the field, we were tempted to dash over and try to tackle the guy with the ball. About that time the play would reverse direction to the spot we had just left.

One of our best players was very aggressive and often strayed far from his position. He was …

Integrity Proves God’s Faithfulness

“Then at the end of the days which the king had specified for presenting them, the commander of the officials presented them before Nebuchadnezzar. And the king talked with them, and out of them all not one was found like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah; so they entered the king’s personal service. And as for every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king consulted them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and conjurers who were in all his realm” (Daniel 1:18-20).

God always equips you for the tasks He requires of you.

Daniel and the other young men deported in 606 B.C. received three years of intense training under the watchful eye of the commander of King Nebuchadnezzar’s officials. At the conclusion of their training, they were presented to the king for his personal evaluation. The results were impressive indeed. Of all those who were trained, none compared to Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. Beyond that, they were found to be ten times better than all the wise men in the entire kingdom of Babylon! Consequently, at the age of only seventeen or eighteen, they were made the king’s personal servants.

Applying the Word Without Delay

“If anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was” (James 1:23-24).

Always respond immediately to what you know to be God’s will for you.

Men, have you ever been at work and touched your face, only to realize that you forgot to shave? Perhaps you were distracted by your wife’s call to breakfast or by one of the kids. Ladies, have you ever been out in public and suddenly realized that you forgot to apply some of your makeup? Those are common occurrences that illustrate what it means to hear God’s Word but fail to respond.

Common Bonds Between Islam and Catholicism

Common Bonds Between Islam and Catholicism

by Mike Gendron
Will the world’s two largest religions converge and be the catalyst for the prophesied one-world religion?  At first glance, the two faiths appear to be vastly different but under close inspection, they have more common bonds than differences. In 1994 the Vatican issued a publication entitled: “Spiritual Bonds Which Unite Us: 16 Years of Christian-Muslim Dialogue.” After extensive study and research, I put forth 10 common bonds that will help unite these two religions.

What is Textual Criticism?

Simply stated, textual criticism is a method used to determine what the original manuscripts of the Bible said. The original manuscripts of the Bible are either lost, hidden, or no longer in existence. What we do have is tens of thousands of copies of the original manuscripts dating from the 1st to the 15th centuries A.D. (for the New Testament) and dating from the 4th century B.C. to the 15th century A.D. (for the Old Testament). In these manuscripts, there are many minor and a few significant differences. Textual criticism is the study of these manuscripts in an attempt to determine what the original reading actually was.

Praising God for Your Election

“Having been predestined according to [God’s] purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will” (Eph. 1:11).

God took the initiative in salvation by choosing you and granting you saving faith.

In Ephesians 1:4 Paul says that God “chose us in [Christ] before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him.” In verse 11 he reiterates that marvelous truth by affirming that believers have been predestined to salvation according to God’s own purpose and will.

Many reject the teaching that God chose (predestined) believers to salvation. They think believers chose God. In one sense they’re right: salvation involves an act of the will in turning from sin to embrace Christ. But the issue in predestination goes deeper than that. It’s a question of initiative. Did God choose you on the basis of your faith in Him or did He, by choosing you, enable you to respond in faith.

The answer is clear in Scripture.

Resting in God’s Sovereignty

Apostasy Warning: A Study of the Book of Jude

Apostasy Warning: A Study of the Book of Jude

 
On Wednesday evenings at GPEH (Grace Point at Eagle Heights Church) we are spending this year making our way through the book of Jude. This epistle is one of 5 Jewish epistles alongside Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, and 2 Peter. Though this is a short book, containing only 25 verses of text, it is nonetheless packed full of relevant, useful information.  This letter could have been written today, as we are struggling with the same problems, same heresies, same errors in the church.
 
In Luke 18:8, Jesus asks the question, “ When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”. Jesus was not speaking out of ignorance. Nor was He questioning whether all believers would be gone when He returns. Instead, He asked the question to spur the disciples on to faithfulness in prayer, to encourage them to keep on in their praying. The church today needs to pray.

Matching Your Practice to Your Position

God chose us “that we should be holy and blameless before Him” (Eph. 1:4).

The challenge of Christian living is to increasingly match your practice to your position.

God chose you in Christ to make you holy and blameless in His sight. To be “holy” is to be separated from sin and devoted to righteousness. To be “blameless” is to be pure without spot or blemish—like Jesus, the Lamb of God (1 Pet. 1:19).

Ephesians 1:4 is a positional statement. That is, Paul describes how God views us “in Christ.” He sees us as holy and blameless because Christ our Savior is holy and blameless. His purity is credited to our spiritual bank account. That’s because God made Christ “who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Cor. 5:21).

Blessing the God of Blessings

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us” (Eph. 1:3).

When we bless God, it is with words of praise; when He blesses us, it is with deeds of kindness.

Paul’s brief doxology identifies God the Father as the ultimate recipient and source of blessing—the One to whom blessing is ascribed and the One who bestows blessings on those who love Him.

“Blessed” translates the Greek word eulogeō, from which we get eulogy. To bless or eulogize God is to praise Him for His mighty works and holy character.

Dealing with “Problem Passages”

Dealing with “Problem Passages”

Remember, our Lord Jesus Christ clearly stated that God’s Word is truth (John 17:17). 

There are no contradictions in the Bible, because God does not contradict Himself.  The problem is not with God and not with His Word, but with man and his faulty understanding.  Even when we do not have the answer, God does.

When there may seem to be contradictory statements and someone claims that the Bible contains errors, keep in mind that …

Paul and James: The Teaching of Both Compared on the Matters of Faith & Works

Paul and James

The Teaching of Both Compared

Paul and James did not contradict each other; but rather they complemented each other. What both men wrote was inspired by God (2 Tim. 3:16) and true. Paul’s focus was on the unsaved man and how he might get right with God. James’ focus was on the saved person and how he might show his faith and demonstrate the reality of his faith.
