WHAT IS GOD?
God is the creator and sustainer of everyone and everything. He exists in Trinity.
The three persons in the one true and living God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are the same in substance, equal in power and glory.
WHAT IS THE TRINITY?
WHY DID GOD CREATE US?
God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him.
WHAT IS THE CHURCH?
The true church is its persons. Together they are the living, active body of Christ on earth as well as the Temple of the Holy Spirit. Each member of the church is given spiritual gift(s) which are to be used in the fulfillment of our purpose.
WHO IS JESUS?
Jesus is the second person of the Trinity: the Son. He took on human flesh while remaining fully God. He was born, lived in righteousness, was killed, lay dead three days, and raised to life again. Having defeated death he ascended to the right hand of the father where he is seated ruling over creation until his return when he remakes creation.
Salvation is currently spiritual and ultimately physical. It is forgiveness of sins and empowerment to righteousness. It is bringing together God and man. It is death to death and the promise of life eternal. It is the destruction of lonesomeness and the integration of community.

What are baptism and communion?
Baptism and Communion (Lord’s Supper) are the symbols and rituals that Christ himself established among his followers. They are unique grace-acts of God by which the Spirit testifies and confirms faith in individuals and communities. East Hills practices "Believers’ Baptism" and “Open Communion.”
The Bible is God’s word passed down to us through generations. It testifies to God as revealed through the person of Jesus, and teaches us what to believe. It is the final authority for life and godliness.
