Explore What We Are Doing
There are many ways to build a church were God’s people can come together, listen to God’s precious Word, grow spiritually and worship Him. In fact we believe that God gives each local church a direction from Heaven to follow. At EVK we have 7 goals which are the main building blocks of our Church EVK.
We trust God that we will impact the world around us, in a positive way. We believe people can live a victorious and powerful life, taking their place in the body of Christ and fulfilling the plan of God for their lives. Our Heavenly Father always wants you to be on the top of every situation of life. This means that you are going to be a head and not the tail. His plan for your life is for you to prosper and be successful in every area.
He wants you to become a strong member of the body of Christ, where you can be useful in developing the gifts God has given to you. He never meant His people to be failures but winners, God desires for you to be spiritually, mentaly and physically strong. When we decide to put God and His Kingdom first in our lives then He will bless us aboundanlty so that we may bless others.
all are born sinners and need a Savior and salvation. Jesus, the Son of God came and paid the price for all sins by shedding his blood on the cross. Jesus is the only way to heaven. To be saved, one must believe in one's heart and confess with one's mouth that Jesus is Lord. God has given everyone free will. It is one's own choice whether to serve Him or to forsake Him. Salvation is a free gift from God and available to all who choose to believe in Him. When you become a believer, you are born again through Jesus and become a child of God. As a child of God, you can receive eternal life in Heaven.
(2. Tim 3:16-17, Rom 10:17, Rom 15:4, 2. Pt 1:19-21, Heb 10:23-25)
Baptism with the Holy Spirit
salvation and baptism with the Holy Spirit are two different experiences. When you are saved, the Holy Spirit comes to live in you. However, the baptism of the Holy Spirit is the filling and overflowing of the Holy Spirit, characterized by speaking in heavenly languages. A life filled with the Holy Spirit is available to every believer and gives us an advantage in everyday life.
(Apostlite teod 2:1-4, Galaatlastele 5:16, Roomlastele 8:14-15, Apostlite teod 19:1-6, John 16:13-14)
Baptism in Water
water baptism is an act of obedience in which a person is
completely submerged and raised again. Water baptism symbolizes our identification and union with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. Water baptism is not necessary to get to heaven, but it is a wonderful experience that strengthens your faith and confidence as a believer.
(Luuka 3:21-22, Apostlite teod 2:38, Roomlastele 6:3-4, Koloslastele 2:12-13, Matteuse 28:19)
into the one and only God, who is three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is a loving God, a good and almighty God. He is the creator of everything and everything was created for Him. God longs for us to steward well all that He has given us: time, talents, and treasures. We give 10% of our income to the church to help people reach Jesus. By being obedient in doing this, we can enjoy all that God does for us. God has promised that if we trust Him and willingly give tithes and offerings, He will bless us exceedingly abundantly and make us a blessing.
(Gen 1:1, Acts 17:28, Gen 12:2-3, Mat 25:20-21, Mal 3:10-12, 2. Cor 9:6-11, 1. Tim 6:18-19)
Jesus paid the price for all sickness and disease on the cross. Jesus is our healer, and healing is available through faith to everyone in God's Family. God still works miracles today and people continue to be miraculously healed. Healing for our bodies is a gift from God! The Bible instructs us to lay hands on the sick in the name of Jesus and God's healing power will make them well.
(Is 53:4-5, Mark 10:52, James 5:5:14-16, 1. Pt 2:24)
Heaven and Hell
into the existence of heaven and hell. Good and evil operate on earth today. When a Christian dies, he goes momentarily to heaven to be with the Lord. We believe that Jesus will return soon to take his church—all believers who are alive at that time—with him to heaven forever. But if you reject Jesus in this life and do not believe in Him as your Lord and Savior, then when you leave this life eternal death in hell awaits you.
(Jn 14:6, 2. Cor 5:8-9, 1. Jn 5:11-13, 1. Cor 15:52-53, Rom 6:23, 1 Thess 4:14-18, Rev 20:15)
Spreading the Word
every Christian has a responsibility to share the gospel with others by speaking boldly about their relationship with Jesus. We do this by living our lives as examples and taking every opportunity to share what Jesus has done for us. We want everyone to know God as their Father and to spend eternity in Heaven.
(Mark 16:15, Math 28:19-20, Acts 1:8, Rom 6:14)
