What We Believe
We believe the Bible is unique, God-inspired and without error in the original writings. At Mount Eaton Church, you will hear messages that focus on what the Bible says and how we can be transformed into the people God wants us to be.
•There is one God, Creator of all things, who is perfect and eternal. God exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
•Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man. He lived a perfect life and died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into Heaven.
•Every individual is a sinner and needs God’s forgiveness. Trusting Christ for forgiveness and salvation, they become a member of the body of Christ.
•The Holy Spirit guides, indwells, instructs and empowers the believer for godly living and service.
•Everyone will experience bodily resurrection and judgment. Those who have placed their faith in Christ will enjoy eternal fellowship with God.
We are a non-denominational church. A more detailed Doctrinal Statement is available by clicking here.
Why we dedicate children:
In the New Testament, Luke chapter 2 tells that following the birth of Jesus, Mary and Joseph took the infant child to the temple and dedicated him to God. The dedication of children is a public commitment made before God, your family, and the church. The dedication service provides parents the opportunity to publicly express their intention to nurture and lead their child to a personal relationship with God. Baby dedications are scheduled through the church office.
Why we practice believer’s baptism:
We believe the Bible clearly teaches baptism by immersion. The meaning of baptism is shown in passages such as Romans 6:1-10. Baptism symbolizes a person’s acceptance of God’s forgiveness by death, burial and resurrection (2 Corinthians 5:17). In the New Testament, baptism always followed conversion as a testimony, rather than a means of salvation. It is a simple act of obedience by a believer. Baptismal services are conducted throughout the year.
