Welcome to Eastern Hills Baptist Church
We are so glad that you decided to join us in worship today. Here at Eastern Hills we realize that we are all in different places on our journey with Christ, and that's okay. Whether you are a seeker, looking for answers, or a long-time follower of Christ, you are welcome here.
o teach children not to be anxious about their lives and to pursue the kingdom of God.
What do you think? Are these heresies?
"God helps those who help themselves." (See Romans 5:6-8)
"God won't give you more than you can handle." (See 1 Cor. 10:13)
"Money is the root of all evil." (See 1 Tim. 6:10)
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (See Phil. 4:11-13)


1) Scripture is part of God's special revelation of Himself.

2) Scripture leads us to faith in Christ.

3) Scripture is our authority for living in Christ.


“The primary purpose of revelation [both general and special] is not necessarily to enlarge the scope of one’s knowledge about God but to know God personally.”

-- A Theology for the Church, David S. Dockery

The State of Theology

Today, we are referencing Statements 14, 25, and 32 from this study by Ligonier and Lifeway Research.

“The Scriptures being the standard of faith, any opinion that is repugnant to its doctrines is heresy.”

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, "heresy"
Holy Bible, Book divine, Precious treasure, thou art mine: Mine to tell me whence I came; Mine to teach me what I am.

Mine to chide me when I rove, Mine to show a Savior’s love; Mine thou art to guide and guard; Mine to punish or reward.

Mine to comfort in distress, Suff’ring in this wilderness; Mine to show, by living faith, We can triumph over death.

Mine to tell of joys to come, And the rebel sinner’s doom: O thou Holy Book divine, Precious treasure, thou art mine.

--The Baptist Hymnal 2008, Hymn #345: "Holy Bible, Book Divine," words by John Burton, Sr.

Discuss this as a family this week:
-- What is your favorite book? Why?
-- Do you think it is important for us to read the Bible in order to know God better? Why or why not?
-- How would you respond to this statement: "The Bible has the authority to tell us what we must do." Why?
-- What do you think it means for Christians to be "equipped for every good work?"
