"ET exists as a community of people who love Jesus and have a desire to see others reach the full potential of who God created them to be. We do this primarily through the announcement of the gospel -- the good news that God has acted on mankind's behalf to do for us what we could never do for ourselves. We endeavor to learn and experience all the ramifications of that, which include belonging to a real family and having the privilege of partnering with God in building His Kingdom."
Statement Of Faith
The sole basis of our belief is in the Bible, composed of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that Scripture in its entirety is the infallible and inerrant Word of God, and is the unique, full, and final authority on all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that there is one true, Holy God, eternally existing in three persons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that no one comes to Him apart from salvation. We believe salvation is wholly a work of God's free grace, not the result of human works or goodness, and must be personally appropriated by repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe Jesus is the eternal second Person of the Trinity who was united forever with a true human nature by a miraculous conception and virgin birth. He lived a life of perfect obedience to the Father, and voluntarily paid for the sins of all by dying on a cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone. He arose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died. He ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of the Father, where He, the only Mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own. He will come again to earth, personally and visibly, to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
