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.
Affirmation of the Trinity:

God the Father is God, God the Son is God, and God the Holy Spirit is God, and that there are not three gods, but one living and true God.
No ontological subordination in the Trinity:

The Father is neither less God than nor more God than the Son, who is neither less God than nor more God than the Spirit, who is neither less God nor more God than the Father.
Voluntary economic subordination in the Trinity (God's actions):

The Father sends the Son (John 17:8) who sends the Spirit (John 16:7). The Spirit will not speak on His own but will speak what He hears from the Son (John 16:13), and the Son speaks only what are the words of the Father (John 14:24).
Today's Notes:

1) God the Father reigns over everything.

2) God the Father rules over everyone.

3) God the Father adopts His children.

EHBC’s Statement of Faith, Article 3: God the Father

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace… God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
Baptist Faith & Message 2000, Article 2A: God the Father

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men.
For discussion this week:

-- When you think of God, what image comes to mind?
-- How does your image of God match up with the Trinity?
-- Have you ever considered what it means that God has adopted us as His children? How does the fact of our adoption bless you?
