“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
The Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Jesus of Nazareth is, eternally God the Son.
He became a man, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died at Calvary, was resurrected in the body, and ascended to the right hand of the Father. He is the Christ, the Savior. He will personally return in power and glory to rule for a thousand years.
At Christ's return, His Bride, the Church will be caught up with Him in a moment.
Salvation is a free gift of God's grace, and is available to all humanity through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to all believers who ask and is vital to living the abundant life that God has for us.
There will be a resurrection of both the saved and the lost. One will rise to everlasting life and fellowship with God, and the other to everlasting punishment and separation from His presence.
ENC is inspired with the hope that none would perish, but that all would come to the saving grace of God through Jesus Christ.
The Father's desire is to give all mankind the opportunity to know Him through His Son, Jesus Christ and the power of His resurrection. It is also His desire to see hope restored and lives changed as people come to know Jesus. God has a plan and a purpose for each of us, it is our vision to see His plan fulfilled as we live in community together, growing in faith and the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Body Needs We have specific groups which meet to discuss issues that effect our everyday lives.
