Eastern Hills Community Church leaders say they strive to create an atmosphere where everyone can feel comfortable and know of the love of Jesus Christ.
They say the church is Bible-based, with members coming from a number of different Christian denominations.
Their goal is to bring people together for a personal encounter with Jesus and to accomplish the unfinished T.A.S.K.S.
• Telling others about Jesus (evangelism) • Associating with believers (fellowship) • Singing his praises and speaking his word (worship) • Knowing and doing the will of God (discipleship) • Serving others (ministry)
