Purpose of Eastland Baptist Church
Our purpose has been given to us by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. In Matthew 28:18-20 He instructs us to go, preach and to teach. We are to reach the world with the Gospel of Christ.
We want to utilize every available biblical means, and we want to disciple and train every member to participate in accomplishing the purpose of Eastland Baptist Church.
Love God Fervently
Loving God begins in the heart, with a personal relationship with Him. As we gather and participate in Christ-honoring worship services and respond to the preaching of God's Word, this love flourishes. Mark 12:30 says, "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment."
Grow Together Biblically
We grow together, in Christ, through the study of God's Word. This occurs in our weekly services, in our smaller Connection Groups, and in one-on-one discipleship.
We reach others as we find a place of ministry in the local body. We also reach out by sharing the Gospel with those who need the Lord -- through witnessing to friends, coworkers, neighbors, and loved ones, as well as in participating in church outreach and giving to missions.
