East Gate's Men's Ministry is a ministry dedicated to help men know God, love God, serve God and do His will. The Bible teaches us that God created Adam first and as men we may like the idea of this priviliged place in creation. But the Bible teaches us that the man's place in God's created order places upon man a great responsibility.
Any man who knows himself examines his life in the light of Scripture and is left utterly humbled at the degree to which he falls short and is not capable of being what God created a man to be. Our hope as men is that the Holy Spirit through His truth, power and grace can make us more and more like the greatest man of all, Jesus. We gather to study the Bible, pray and fellowship with one another in the belief that "Iron sharpens iron" (Proverbs 27:17). God uses men to help men change, grow and encourage one another.
Apart from the truth of God, men have a worldly, sinful view of manhood. Men today additionally face an almost daily attack on manhood by our culture. The men of East Gate Presbyterian are not ashamed to be men, we are glad to be men. At the same time, we realize that we need God to teach us what manhood is. We believe women are to be valued and seek the grace to obey the great command of God to love our wives as "Christ loved the Church and gave Himself for her" (Ephesians 5:25). We pray that God will make us Godly husbands, fathers and grandfathers and that by God's grace, we will leave behind a heritage of Godliness to those He has entrusted to us.
Men, we invite you to join us in our pursuit of God and Biblical manhood.
