This is what we're all about.
It's who we are.
Empowered by God to reach others for Christ.
We believe that no matter where you are in your faith, there's always a next step you can take to better connect and grow in your relationship with God. As a church, we are committed to continually growing and encouraging others to spend more time with God, follow Jesus, connect in community, serve others, and live more generously. These are who we want to become.
Following Jesus is an ongoing commitment. From declaring our trust in him to getting baptized, from sharing your faith with a friend to inviting others to church—it's something we can strive to do each day.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8)
Spend Time with God
"I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing." (John 15:5)
Connect in Community
God created us to be in relationships with others. We encourage attenders to connect to their campus community by joining a small group, serving or even just taking the initiative to say "hello" to someone new in church.
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Share God’s joy and love by serving others—in your home, church, neighborhood, and around the world. Discover your God-given gifts to figure out how God has uniquely wired you to serve others.
Use your freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Galatians 5:13-14)
God has called us to live generously. We can do this by sharing our time, talents, and finances.
I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ. (Philemon 1:6)
Our nine core beliefs—about God, People, the Church, the Bible and Christ's return—are the foundation of this church. This is what we believe.
- There is one living, sovereign God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Rev. 1:8, Is. 43:10-11, Deut. 6:4, Matt. 28:19)
- Jesus was sent by the Father to live on earth; he was fully God and fully human, yet had no sin. Jesus willingly laid down his life and, after three days, rose from the grave. In doing this, Jesus fulfilled the payment for the world’s debt of sin. (Luke 1:31, 35, 1 Cor. 15:3, 2 Cor. 5:21)
- The Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and Son to convict the world of sin and to empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. He lives in every believer and is a constant helper, Teacher and guide. (John 14:16-17)
- God created people in his image, and everyone matters to God. (Gen. 1:26-27, Gen. 5:1-2)
- All people are sinners and need God’s forgiveness. (Rom. 3:23)
- Those who confess and turn from their sin, trusting in Jesus Christ, will be saved by grace and become children of God, with the promise of eternal life. (John 3:16-17, Gal. 3:26)
The Church, The Bible and Christ’s Return
- Jesus Christ is the head of the church and all believing people are members. (Eph. 4:15-16)
- The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
- Jesus Christ will return and there will be a final judgment. (Matt. 24:3, 37)
Eagle Brook is focused on three key areas: providing teaching, music and environments that are RELEVANT to our people and culture; helping people experience TRANSFORMATION; and giving people the opportunity to take OWNERSHIP of their faith and their church as they grow, give and serve. Before planning a weekend service, special event or ministry activity, we ask these questions: Is it relevant? Will it change lives? Will it give people the opportunity to take ownership?
