Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!

"The message of circumcision implies that you can save yourself; as such, it is flattering to human pride. The message of the Cross, however, is offensive to human pride, because we have to acknowledge that we are dependent completely on Christ" ~ from the current Sabbath School Quarterly.
"The Bible assures us that it is not our hold on God that keeps us safe, but the power of Jesus' grip. No one can take us out of his grasp. Once we're in His hands, He will not let go" ~ from the article, "Mr. Fix-It" by Terry Koch in the August 2017 Village Voice.
