What’s 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 Resurrection of Jesus is the Focus of the Sermons Recorded in the Book of Acts

resurrection1The certainty and glory of the Resurrection, and the hope provided by it, is the central focus of all the sermons recorded in the book of Acts.

1. Peter’s second sermon (delivered on the Temple Mount):

“Men of Israel… you put to death the Prince of life, the one whom God raised from the dead…” (Acts 3:12,15)

2. The Apostles’ initial preaching in Jerusalem:
“…the Sadducees came upon them, being greatly disturbed because they [the apostles] were teaching people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.” (Acts 4:1-2)

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is of Utmost importance!

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is of Utmost importance!

The apostle Paul said, “and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. 15 Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised; 17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.” 1 Corinthians 15:14-19

If the resurrection did not happen, the apostles were liars, our faith is futile, we are still lost in our sins, the dead in Christ have simply perished, and everyone who has ever hoped in Christ is to be pitied above all men.  The resurrection of Jesus is important indeed.  Because of this,  it has been met with vehement opposition through the years.  Many alternative theories have been put forth to explain away the resurrection of Jesus Christ. These theories, however, simply do not hold water.

Here are the most common alternate theories given by critics:

Did Christianity Steal the Resurrection Story from Pagan Religions?

“Did Christianity Steal the Resurrection Story from Pagan Religions?”

A popular claim by skeptics of Christianity is that the early church fabricated the story of Jesus’ resurrection by borrowing the concept of a dying and resurrecting god-man from pagan mystery religions originating in Egypt, Greece, and Persia. However, there are serious problems with this claim.

First, there is no archaeological evidence of these mystery religions being present in the area of Israel/Palestine in the 1st century AD when the early church began proclaiming the resurrection of Christ.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of the Christian Faith.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of the Christian Faith.

As the Apostle Paul stated, “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:17). Christianity is NOT blind faith!  Dr. Greenleaf, the Royal Professor of Law at Harvard University, was one of the greatest legal minds that ever lived. He wrote the famous legal volume entitled, A Treatise on the Law of Evidence, considered by many the greatest legal volume ever written. Dr. Simon Greenleaf believed the Resurrection of Jesus Christ was a hoax. And he determined, once and for all, o expose the “myth” of the Resurrection.

Religious Trojan Horse-Intro

Religious Trojan Horse intro.

While false teachers have been around since biblical times, infiltration of the church has increased alarmingly, just as Jesus predicted in Matthew 24. Many contemporary “Christian” leaders embrace and encourage the false Jesus and false gospels of Mormonism, the New Age Movement, Roman Catholicism, Word of Faith teachers, the New Apostolic Reformation, & Eastern Mysticism.
