Vision

The elders of Eastview Christian Church have prayerfully and faithfully articulated a vision for our future as the Lord leads us forward.

 

Eastview Christian Church is a fearless church of Christ followers whose ridiculous love and dangerous witness are irresistible.

 

A FEARLESS CHURCH

  • Matthew 16:18 – “…on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”

  • Romans 8:37-39 – “…in all things we are more than conquerors…nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

  • Acts 4:13 – “When they saw the courage of Peter and John…they took note that these men had been with Jesus.”

 

OF CHRIST FOLLOWERS

  • John 1:43 – “Follow me.”

  • John 21:22 – “You must follow me.”

  • Matthew 16:24 – “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”

  • Acts 11:26 – “The disciples (followers) were called Christians first at Antioch.”

 

WHOSE RIDICULOUS LOVE

  • Luke 14:13 – “When you give a banquet invite the poor, cripple, lame, and blind…they cannot repay you...”

  • Matthew 5:44 – “But I tell you: Love your enemies…”

  • John 13:35 – “By this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

AND DANGEROUS WITNESS

  • Acts 1:8 – “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you…and you will be my witnesses…to the ends of the earth.”

  • Ephesians 6:19-20 – “Pray also for me…so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains.”

 

ARE IRRESISTIBLE

  • Acts 5:11-14 – “No one else dared join them…nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number.”
