OUR TEACHING COMES FROM THE BIBLE.
WE BELIEVE AND TEACH THE FOLLOWING PROVABLE, ESSENTIAL TRUTHS:
The Bible is God’s revelation and the supreme authority in our lives. It is practical, powerful, and perfect. The Bible shows us where we come from, our purpose, and where we are going. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 4:12-13)
God the Father is eternal, powerful, and perfect, making no mistakes and doing no wrong. He is always just and He is always loving. God never changes. (Psalm 18:30, Isaiah 14:27, Malachi 3:6, 1 John 4:8)
Jesus is the chosen one to rescue, forgive and save people from the punishment of sin, hell. Jesus is eternal and perfect. Jesus is God. (Matthew 16:16, John 1:1-2)
Humanity by nature is not good. Our sin separates us from God. We need God to rescue us from the consequences of sin. (Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23)
Jesus' death and shed blood on a cross happened to save us from hell, the punishment of our sin. (Acts 4:12, Romans 5:8)
The resurrection of Jesus from the dead shows Jesus’ complete power to give humanity salvation. (1 Corinthians 15:17-19)
Eternal life is only offered to you through FAITH in Jesus’ death in your place. It is a FREE GIFT! (John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9)
Sanctification and transformation in a believer's life happens bwalking with God moment by moment. Through the Holy Spirit, change happens through intentional discipleship relationships grounded in the Bible and prayer. (Matthew 28:19-20, 2 Corinthians 3:18)

EAST VALLEY BIBLE CHURCH WAS PLANTED IN 2012
The Moore and Thompson families came with an organization called Tentmakers Bible Mission. The purpose of "TBM" is to plant independent, fundamental, Bible-based churches all over the world.
East Valley Bible Church is heading towards "graduation" out from under the umbrella of TBM so we can be a healthy, thriving group who is able to equip and send out others to continue to reach the world for Jesus.

Matt grew up in Iowa and had a lot of church experience. It wasn't until college he recognized church was more than a religious exercise and all about a relationship with Jesus.
Matt graduated from Frontier School of the Bible in 2012 and with his wife, Emmerie, joined Tentmakers Bible Mission the same year.
They moved to Las Vegas to share the life of Jesus and plant churches.
He has been the lead pastor at East Valley Bible Church since its' beginning in 2012.
The purpose of East Valley Bible Church is not unique. Every healthy church has the same purpose. To make disciples of all people.
The Bible clearly teaches God’s desire for us is to be disciples. This process begins when we first hear the great news of Jesus' love in action and continues throughout our lives.
We believe a healthy church fulfilling this purpose will be engaged in 3 biblical commitments:
Encouraging to Know - this happens through teaching the Bible and prayer.
Connecting to Grow - relationships with accountability and encouragement.
Equipping to Go - leadership should be mobilizing everyone to share Jesus and disciple.
Each of these commitments require intentionality. Being a Christian requires intentionality.
We exist to help you walk down this path. Join us Sunday morning to begin!
