Our story began in the summer of 2008 when our pastors Jake and Ashley Claunch along with their children moved north from south Louisiana to Cordova, Tn out of obedience to God with the purpose of planting a new church committed to seeing people brought to new life with Jesus and developing true disciples of Christ, living their lives based on God’s word, being in the world but not of the world. The desire was to see lives restored, the broken healed, marriages made whole, families flourishing, teens thriving in Christ, children learning about God and Jesus being lifted high above it all.
Much could be said about God’s miraculous faithfulness and power as our story has unfolded. So many lives transformed, restored and changed to the glory of God, so many inexplicable even impossible things have come to pass since 2008 but we know that God is just getting started at EH and our best days are still to come in Jesus name!
The vision and mission of Eagle Heights is to be and become a church that draws all of humanity to Jesus. We exist to demonstrate the life-changing transformative power of a life committed to Jesus and to display His love in our community and beyond. To minister the truth of god's Word boldly and unashamedly with passion, power, and purpose. To know Christ and to make Him known and to see many souls born again into new life with Him. Our matra is "Jesus our focus, People our passion".
We use the word family around here a lot because that's what we are. One big family of believers, all from different backgrounds, ethnicity's, levels of education, social status, and regions gathering together for one common goal to know Jesus more deeply and make Him known more completely to a world looking for answers in desperate need of an encounter with God. Our hearts desire is to see people encounter the One True Living God, becoming true disciples and joining our mission to advance Christ's Kingdom in America and beyond.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
What we believe
Eagle Heights Church is a Bible-believing inter-denominational body of believers. We believe in the inerrancy of scripture and that all books of our Bible are sacred, holy, and God-breathed. Written by humans who were miraculously, divinely, and supernaturally inspired under the direction and supervision of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the sole authoritative source and manual for the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ. It is more than a book but is alive and sharper than any two-edged sword able to penetrate the mind, heart, and soul of humanity in a way that no other book can or will ever be able to do.
The Essentials We Believe
ABOUT GOD: God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three
personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
(Genesis 1:1, 26-27, Genesis 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19)
ABOUT THE BIBLE: The Bible is God's word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because God inspires it, it is the truth without error. The Bible was not written only to educate us, but to change our lives. (Psalm 119:19,
II Timothy 3:16)
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST: Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22-23, John 1:1-5, John 14:10-31, Romans 1:4)
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT: The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily. (II Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13, Ephesians 5:18, John 14:17)
ABOUT PEOPLE: People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God. This attitude, called sin, separates people from God and causes many problems in life. (Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:3-6, Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1-2)
ABOUT ETERNITY: People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. (John 3:16, Romans 6:23, Romans 8:17-18, Revelation 20:15)
