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.

 

Enjoying God’s Forgiveness

 

In Christ we have “the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of [God’s] grace, which He lavished upon us” (Eph. 1:7-8).

In Christ we have infinite forgiveness for every sin—past, present, and future.

On Israel’s Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) the high priest selected two goats. One was sacrificed; the other set free. Before releasing the second goat, the high priest symbolically placed the sins of the people on it by laying his hands on its head. This “scapegoat” was then taken a great distance from camp and released—never to return again (Lev. 16:7-10).

The Greek word translated “forgiveness” in Ephesians 1:7 means “to send away.” It speaks of cancelling a debt or granting a pardon. Like the scapegoat, Christ carried away our sins on the cross.

The Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards (1722-1723)

Remember to read over these Resolutions once a week.

Considerations for Choosing a Church by Eric Davis

CHURCH FAMILY….this is a great read.
 
SEPTEMBER 16, 2015

my-churches-5

I live in a revolving-door town and so interact regularly with people who are church shopping. It can be a difficult decision  because of things like the commitment needed, the change involved, and preferences we have. Add to that, the various church options in some locations, and it can get trickier. But, are all the options, options? And, are we approaching the search with the right criteria?

God’s word is clear that to not plug in is not an option. So, what are some things to keep in mind as we make the very important decision of choosing a local church?

First, a few preliminary marks.

  • The church is a gift from God to his people. Plugging into God’s kind of church is a privilege and joy for believers. Keeping this in mind will help us maintain a necessary humility as we search.

Would Jesus Magnify His Presence Above the Word of God?

jesus-calling

By Warren B. Smith
(from his book “Another Jesus” Calling)

In Jesus Calling, “Jesus” promotes the experience of his presence above God’s Word.

Psalm 138:2 tells us:

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.(emphasis added)

Because God has magnified His Word above His name, this lets us know we will never experience His presence in any way that is not totally consistent with the truth of His Word. Thus, we can know that any presence that comes calling and claims the name of “Jesus” as its own but does not line up in every way with God’s Word is not the presence of God. God will never put His name or experiencing His presence above His Word.

The true Jesus Christ tells us:

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. (Matthew 24:35)

God is always present with us—a presence that will never be magnified above His Word. If we choose to put experiencing God’s presence above His Word, we are leaving ourselves open and vulnerable to the visits of a counterfeit presence.

For the “Jesus” of Jesus Calling, experiencing His presence is everything. This is his invitation:

In case you still aren’t sure about William Paul Young and his book The Shack…

 

In case you still aren’t sure about William Paul Young and his book The Shack—in case you still have some doubts as to whether Young is really of a New Age/New Spirituality persuasion—in case after reading articles at Lighthouse Trails revealing Young’s anti-biblical views on atonement and the Cross—and in case after reading Warren B. Smith’s booklet The Shack and Its New Age Leaven that documents Young’s affinity with New Age thinking, then perhaps his recently posted “Twenty Books Everyone Should Read” list on Young’s blog will convince you that The Shack or any of Young’s writings should not be sitting on the shelves of Christian bookstores and North American pastors’ offices and should never have become a New York Times best-seller having found itself there through primarily Christian readers (not to mention the big plug it received from endorsements by Eugene Peterson [The Message] and Calvary Chapel speaker Gayle Erwin. You can see the entire list of Young’s recommended books by clicking here. Below we are giving you a partial list of the authors whom William P. Young recommends. After looking at this list, you decide for yourself.

40 QUESTIONS FOR CHRISTIANS NOW WAVING RAINBOW FLAGS

40 QUESTIONS FOR CHRISTIANS NOW WAVING RAINBOW FLAGS

OrdinanceAgainstRainbowFlagDraftedinLouisianna070713For evangelicals who lament last Friday’s Supreme Court decision, it’s been a hard few days. We aren’t asking for emotional pity, nor do I suspect many people are eager to give us any. Our pain is not sacred. Making legal and theological decisions based on what makes people feel better is part of what got us into this mess in the first place. Nevertheless, it still hurts.

There are many reasons for our lamentation, from fear that religious liberties will be taken away to worries about social ostracism and cultural marginalization. But of all the things that grieve us, perhaps what’s been most difficult is seeing some of our friends, some of our family members, and some of the folks we’ve sat next to in church giving their hearty “Amen” to a practice we still think is a sin and a decision we think is bad for our country. It’s one thing for the whole nation to throw a party we can’t in good conscience attend. It’s quite another to look around for friendly faces to remind us we’re not alone and then find that they are out there jamming on the dance floor. We thought the rainbow was God’s sign (Gen. 9:8-17).

If you consider yourself a Bible-believing Christian, a follower of Jesus whose chief aim is to glorify God and enjoy him forever, there are important questions I hope you will consider before picking up your flag and cheering on the sexual revolution.

Homosexuality and the Bible

OrdinanceAgainstRainbowFlagDraftedinLouisianna070713In light of the recent ruling from the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), I thought it to be prudent to post some of the notes from our recent Sunday evening studies. Here you will find what the Bible teaches (in context) concerning the sin of homosexuality. We have also attached several links to articles that will be beneficial in your study of this hot topic. You will find encouragement to stand upon God’s Word as the standard for holiness and much in the way of resources as you seek to engage this culture with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Remember, it is the Gospel that is the “power of God unto the salvation of all who believe” (Romans 1:16).

 

4 Key Points to Remember:

 

  1. The Bible says marriage is between one man and one woman (Gen. 1:27-28; 2:18-25; Mal. 2:15; Matt. 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9).
