OUR VISION & BELIEFS
PEOPLE LOVING GOD AND LOVING OTHERS
ELI Church exists to advance the Kingdom of God through sound biblical teaching and spiritual training for practical living which edify and exhort all believers to love God and others.
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."
OUR CORE VALUES ARE LOVE, GENEROSITY, COMMUNITY, AND EVANGELISM.
WHAT WE DO
MAKING DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS
Our mission statement is to see people of all nations come to receive the saving grace of God through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16) and be empowered by the filling of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8) to live out the call that God has for them.
Matthew 28:19-20, "Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
ELI is an international church where we desire to worship God in spirit and in truth with all people groups. Diverse worship is a powerful and strategic way to mobilize ministry. Multiethnic worship is representative of heaven‘s worship and brings us a bit of heaven on earth as the church displays these characteristics. We hope to thoroughly equip and send out missionaries for prayer, healing, deliverance, sharing the gospel, making disciples, and multiplying churches for the glory of God.
Psalm 86:9, "All the nations you made will come and bow before you, Lord; they will praise your holy name."
STATEMENT OF FAITH
I. Bible: Holy Scriptures are given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, and entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. 2 Tim. 3:16
II. God: One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Eph. 4:6; 2 Cor. 13:14
III. Jesus Christ: The only begotten Son of God - by whom the salvation of lost and sinful man is obtained; by His blood; by FAITH through GRACE apart from works. The purpose of the Church is to exalt Jesus in every way. John 3:16
IV. Holy Spirit: By whose indwelling and filling, the believer is regenerated and empowered to live a holy life, to be a witness and fulfill the calling of the Lord Jesus Christ. John 14:26; Eph. 5:18
V. Mankind: Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God: he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through faith in the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving is eternal judgement to a place of torment. Rom. 3:23, 6:23; Eph. 2:8
VI. Marriage: We believe in the Bible and its entirety that marriage is between one male and one female, created in the image of God. Gen. 1:27, 2:24
VII. The Church: Consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper. There is unity of the Spirit of all true believers. Acts 2; Eph. 4
VIII. Eschatology: Jesus has come as Savior, Healer and Deliverer; He is coming again as Lord and King. There is a literal, final, physical resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved (justified by faith in Jesus Christ) unto the resurrection of life; they that are lost (unrepentant) unto the resurrection of eternal judgment to damnation and torment. Matt. 24; 1 Thes. 5; Rev. 22
FIND YOUR FAITH
We believe and declare that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ. God's love endures forever!
Romans 8:38-39, "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord."
