Offering- We realize that God expects His followers to share the gift of Jesus Christ with the world. We "offer" the message of Jesus to everyone we come in contact with in hopes that the person will choose to follow Jesus. We know is our role to offer the saving grace of Jesus. We know that we cannot choose for another person. Therefore, we offer this great news, knowing God is the supreme orchastrator of all things and is working to draw other's to Himself
Grace- We realize that God is holy and perfect. We know that God offered His Son, Jesus Christ, to live a perfect life and be sacrificed for our sake. We believe that Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection is God's plan to bring us to Himself. We cannot be in God's presence without this gift of God's grace-Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:1-10; 1 Peter 3:18)
Truth- We realize that God offers the truth to all people around the world, even though the world has ideas of what is truth. The truth is we are all sinners, disobeying God and in need of His grace. The truth is that Jesus Christ is in fact, the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The truth is we all must repent and choose to follow Jesus as our Lord and Savior, that leads our life, both here and forever in Heaven. (John 14:6-14)
in Love- We realize that we are all sinners that are not perfect. We know we must offer this saving grace to other people that are broken and hurting as well. If we truly understand and embrace God's grace He has shown us, then we must offer that same attitude of His saving grace in love to others.
to All- We realize that God made a way for every person to trust and follow Him for now and all of eternity alike. We know that God desires to see all people to call on His name as their Lord, Savior, and leader. Therefore, at East Athens, we strive to get this saving message of Jesus to everyone in our community, our state, our nation, and all our the world. We accept everyone here at East Athens. We hope that every person would feel welcomed, accepted, and safe in worshipping our Great God here. (John 3:16-21)
Friend-God has a great plan for you and your life. You are created in His image. Though you are not perfect, God desires for YOU to be with Him both in this world and for all of eternity. He desires you in Presence so much that He gave up His one Son, Jesus to be with you. Jesus is God's son that lived a perfect life, was sacrificed on the cross, and rose again three days later by God's Power! He can do the same for you as well. You must believe:
God Loves you
God sacrificed His perfect Son-Jesus and raised Him from the dead
You trust Jesus as your personal Savior that rescued you from your sin (sin is disobeying God and being selfish)
You want to follow God's leadership in your life as you love and serve Him for the rest of your life
