Partnering Congregations

Eastern Hills is always prayerfully considering future partners. If you are an ethnic or international church that worships in a language other than English or if you are considering starting a church to reach a particular people group, you may be a potential partner.

What is the One Voice Vision that our partners share?

Our "One Voice Vision" is based from Romans 15:5-6, specifically verse 6:

"Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, 6 so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and   Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."

One Voice is the vision of a family of churches partnered together to display God’s kingdom through unity in diversity. Our focus is to bridge the multicultural landscape of Charlotte with a family of partnered churches glorifying God together.

5 Key One Voice Partnership Principles

01 | Doctrine

Alignment and agreement in the essential tenets of faith, freedom in non-essentials and a like-minded vision towards ministry. See our “What We Believe” page for specific doctrinal alignment.

 

02 | One Voice Worship

Unified approach to one multicultural, majority English service among our family of ethnic/immigrant partnering churches while also supporting immigrant/ethnic heart language services.

 

03 | Family and Adult Discipleship

Unified approach to birth through student ministries and cooperation among some adult ministries.

 

04 | Leadership/Volunteers

Sharing of leadership and responsibilities involving a team of leaders from each congregation working together to plan and coordinate ministries as well as volunteers at every level of ministry working together.

 

05 | Facilities and Finances

Shared use of facilities and shared contributions supporting facility and ministry use.
