What We Believe

Easthaven is a body of believers committed to serving the Lord and reaching out to the community and world around us.  We are a Southern Baptist church and embrace the beliefs set forth in The Baptist Faith and Message.

The purpose that drives Easthaven is a simple, yet life changing truth that is summarized in God’s greatest command, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Our purpose… to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. For His greatness and goodness to us, we give Him our all because He is worthy of our all.

We believe we can fulfill this purpose by concentrating on three concepts of our lives and the church: 
Worship - Connect - Serve.

Worship  :
  Every believer is called to live a life of worship before God. Simply put, worship is our response to God’s love, who He is, and what He has done. It is more than a meeting, a time, or a song. It is our entire life.

Connect  :  Every believer is called to live a life connected to God and other believers. As a branch is connected to the vine, we are connected to Jesus, for He provides us life and through Him we produce fruit. As we are connected with other believers, we are given companionship, accountability, and encouragement.

Serve  : Every believer is called to serve Jesus with their life. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” We don’t serve the Lord out of pride for our abilities or accomplishments. We serve Him as a result of our love and passion for Him.

Whether you are a first-time guest, regular attender, or faithful member, you are always welcome at Easthaven.
