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.

1) We can know we have eternal life.

2) We can know our prayers are heard and answered.
A) Supplication
B) Intercession

3) We can know that we belong to God.

4) We can know the Truth.

“I am writing because you are true believers, but there are deceivers in your midst, and I want you to be rock-solid confident in your present possession of eternal life as regenerate children of God, so that you are not drawn away after sin. And if this letter has that effect my joy will be complete.”
‌— John Piper, “Everyone Who Has Been Born of God”
“Prayer is not a convenient device for imposing our will upon God, or for bending his will to ours, but the prescribed way of subordinating our will to his. It is by prayer that we seek God’s will, embrace it and align ourselves with it. Every true prayer is a variation on the theme ‘your will be done’.”
‌—John Stott, The Letters of John
“It behooves the individual Christian to be on his guard against any such God-substitute, whether it be a political idea, or some fashionable cult, or merely the product of his own ‘wishful thinking.’”
‌—Daniel Akin, 1, 2, 3 John, New American Commentary
Discuss this further this week with these questions:

—What is something that you feel extremely confident in doing? (perhaps a sport, game, or skill?)
—Why is it so important for us to have confidence in Jesus for our salvation, instead of ourselves?
—Do you know that you have eternal life? If not, trust in Christ today!
