A Bible believing Church …

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.

 

The Basis for the New Birth (John 3:14-21)

Christ had to die (vv. 14–17).

Christ again refers Nicodemus to the OT, this time Num. 21, the account of the brazen serpent. The serpents were biting the Jews and killing them, and the strange solution to the problem was found when Moses made a serpent of brass! Looking to the serpentin faith brought healing. In like manner, Christ was made sin for us, for it was sin that was killing us. As we look to Christ by faith, we are saved.
 
Did all this happen for judgment and condemnation? No. That was never God’s purpose. 
Notice how central Jesus is to the passage. Verse 15 emphasizes the words “in him” and they appear again in verses 16–18, while verse 17 talks about God’s saving the world through him.

8 Tips for Studying God’s Word

 

A Prayer before You Begin

Father, help me to approach your Word not most ultimately as a textbook or instruction manual. Enable me to approach it for what it is—your unique revelation of your own joy-inspiring glory. May what I come to understand intellectually move me quickly to worship, obedience, and sharing with others. So please open my eyes now, that I may see wonderful things in your Word. 

1. Get the right writing materials.

An Open Letter to Those Frustrated by Their Progress in Sanctification

 
We all love it when life leaps into forward gear and we make all kinds of progress. Problems just seem to fall away. Perhaps in your life you’ve had a season like that, a season when your life seemed to shine and flourish. Maybe it was when you first became a believer or during some period when you were very well nurtured by good community and wise input.

Then there are those seasons where things go very slowly. You wonder, “Is this all there is? Why do I keep struggling with the same old things? I keep losing my temper, or feeling anxious, or being clumsy in relationships . . . ” What vision does God give us for what our lives are supposed to look like, especially when we’re dealing with the long, hard struggle part of being a Christian? Let me say two things.

Is Your house Clean?

Our study in the Gospel of John has already proven to be challenging and enriching. Remember John’s purpose in writing this book:

He declares, “these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31).

The primary purposes, therefore, are two-fold: evangelistic and apologetic.1

John wants us to believe in Jesus. He has chosen seven signs (o …

WHO CRUSHES THE SERPENT’S HEAD IN GENESIS 3:15?

by John Fallahee, Proclaiming the Gospel Ministry

INTRODUCTION: The first prophecy in the Bible regarding Christ is in Genesis 3:15. It is an amazing text. Not only is the text ancient but it foretells Christ ending the power of Satan. Scholars call this the “protoevangelium” or “the first mention of the Gospel.”

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise him on the heel. (Genesis 3:15)

For Lent , Give up Lent

by Jesse Johnson

February 27, 2017

A friend of mine was recently asked by a local youth pastor, “What’d you give up for Lent?” My friend quipped, “Lent.”

I can’t help but notice a growth in evangelicals who want to celebrate Lent by “giving something up.” I’ve heard of Christians giving up sugar, soda, Angry Birds, and Netflix (ok, I made up the last one—I’ve never heard of anyone giving up Netflix). For some evangelicals, apparently Lent is the new New Year’s. Those old resolutions were dropped by Feb 10, so time to dust them off and start over on March 1.

Passion for Truth and Hatred for Lies

by Mike Genderon, Proclaiming the Gospel Ministry
 
Religious institutions that deceive people about their eternal destiny are to be exposed as enemies of God and agents of the devil. The Bible reveals there is only one answer to the question: “What must I do to be saved from the wrath of a Holy and Righteous God who must punish sin?” To give the wrong answer to this sobering question is to propagate the most lethal and deadly lie anyone could ever speak. To point people to the wide road that leads to destruction is the most despicable departure from the truth and a devilish abomination to God (Prov. 12:22).

In Case You Still Aren’t Sure About The Shack…Updated For The Movie

Did Jesus Give Up His Divine Attributes?

A casual reading of Philippians 2:6-8 may lead the reader to assume that Jesus gave up His divine attributes in the Incarnation. This is a complete misunderstanding. Upon closer examination we see that Jesus did not give up any of His divine attributes when He, the Word, “became flesh”. What then did Paul mean when he writes that Christ, “emptied Himself” or “made Himself nothing”?

First, Christ veiled the glory t …

Jesus is our Tabernacle

Jesus is our Tabernacle

John 1:14

The Greek word for “dwelt” is the Greek word skaynay. Skaynay is the Greek word for tabernacle. In other words, Jesus came and “tabernacled, or “pitched His tent”, among us. This is a clear reference to the tabernacle of the Old Testament. 

Just as God’s shekinah glory came down and tabernacled with His people, Jesus Christ, the Word of God who took on flesh, tabernacled with us when He came to earth. Friends, the tabernacle of the Ol …

The Pronouns of the Gospel

The Pronouns of the Gospel

Article from 9marks

02.02.2017

As our society has come to view gender as a less-than-static social construct, there has been some wrestling over what to do about our personal pronouns. On the face of it, it might seem simple. A man who begins to identify as a woman simply becomes “she.”

But how do you refer to them when you are discussing something in their pre-transition past? Do you look at a picture of a young boy who grew up to identify as a woman and say, “She loved that family trip to Disney World”?

center-for-the-arts-1903588_1280The answer, according to the Civilities column in The Washington Post, is “yes.” To refer to someone in the past using their old name and/or gendered pronoun is called “dead naming” and is to be avoided. When you see a picture of the 1976 Olympic Decathalon champion, you ought to say “Caitlin Jenner was the winner. She went on to be on a Wheaties box.”

Christians Who Accept Millions of Years Undermine God’s Word

Christians Who Accept Millions of Years Undermine God’s Word
 
by Ken Ham  on January 16, 2017
 
Can Christians believe in millions of years? Yes, inconsistently. Christians who believe in molecules-to-man evolution and millions of years are undermining biblical authority and thus are undermining the Word of God. Of course, salvation is conditioned upon faith in Christ alone, so you can be a Christian without holding to a young earth. But an old earth undermines God’s Word!
 
For those Christians who add evolution to the Bible:
 
But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word. (Isaiah 66:2)

The Gap Theory—an Idea with Holes

Here is a little more for those of you following our Sunday Night Bible Study through the Book of Genesis.

by Dr. Henry M. Morris on December 1, 1987
Originally published in Creation

 10, no 1 (December 1987): 35-37.

Many people assume there is a great gap in time between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.

‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth’ (Genesis 1:1).
‘And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.’ (Genesis 1:2).
