Like most conservative Christian churches, we claim that everything we believe stems from the Bible which we know to be the holy and inspired word of God. But unlike many conservative churches, we do not want to teach our own private interpretations of the Bible, or to preach someone else’s new & recent interpretations of Scripture, or to put forth new understandings and revelations received directly from God. Our desire is to hold to the ancient Christian faith or “the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints” as best as we are able to discern it. Therefore, we make it our aim to preach classic Christian doctrine, placing high value on the earliest, most universally held and accepted interpretations, beliefs and practices of the church. We want to hold to the original Christian faith as best as we are able to do so. For this reason, we are very Bible-focused while also being intentional to learn from church history.
Concerning specific beliefs, we believe a lot of things! Too much to spell out here! Consider reading some of the articles we have posted on this site to get some idea of where we stand on some basic doctrinal issues. But speaking very basically, we see in Genesis that in the beginning God created the earth and everything in it. We learn that man (being created with free-will) fell into sin and is therefore in desperate need of a savior. We believe that God sent that savior to earth in His predetermined, miraculous plan to save mankind who is still able to exercise free-will and who must respond to God’s gracious call and invitation which was given through Jesus, if we want to have hope of spending eternity with God.
The Bible shows us that God sent His only son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins! We believe that Jesus died and after three days rose again overcoming sin and death once and for all for mankind. Our salvation comes through a personal relationship with Christ that begins with the commitment of baptism and grows into an active life mirroring the actions and attitudes of Christ.
Eureka church of Christ is a collection of Christians with like minds to serve and worship our God. We seek to follow the examples we see in the Bible of churches in the new testament. Our goals are to eradicate sin from our lives, build one another up, and spread the good news of how Jesus saved us!
