Keeping the Faith
"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1
"But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law."
At Eastside, we have no right to construct a creed; Jesus has already set in place the identity of Christianity. We do, however have a critical responsibility to deny self and follow Jesus (Luke 9:23). We are fallible, but the words of the Christ are absolute. Jesus calls us to come learn from him and we we intend to faithfully respond to his call (Matthew 11:28-30).
