…Baptism reimagines the death and resurrection of Jesus taking place in the life of a believer—through baptism with water we experience the washing away of sin through blood. We are baptized into the name of the Triune God establishing covenant with each person of the Trinity who plans, secures, and applies our salvation. Communion is past, present, and future in that it remembers the body and blood of Jesus in flesh, currently sees itself in communion with Jesus’ living body (the church) in joy and self-sacrifice, and looks forward to the return of Christ in triumph. “Believers Baptism” indicates that we do not baptize infants; “Open Communion” indicates that you do not need to be a member of East Hills, only profess Christ as Lord and Savior.
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.”
