Combining Head and Heart

Posted by Dustin Raley on

Have you ever felt weird singing love songs to an ancient Jewish carpenter? I have. There have been seasons in my life where I became really uncomfortable with some of the language in our modern worship songs. One of the choruses that used to trip me up was, “I’m running to Your arms...

The Blessing of Serving

Posted by Rose Anderson on

When my husband and I first joined ECBC in 1998, Craig Harris sent us a letter of welcome.  In the letter he wrote that East Cooper was a big church (although not as big as it is now!) and that if we wanted to become part of the life of the church we should dive in with both feet and get...

3 Don’ts for Raising Teenagers 

Posted by Dave B. on

I often speak with parents who tell me that one or more of their children are rebelling against them and against God.  I can empathize.  My son, Don, did the same thing.  It was ugly at times, and it was hard.  But both Ceil and I learned a lot through it and our faith grew...

I Will Go Before You

Posted by Danny Beech on

I love to travel and I’ve learned a very simple trick to heighten my experience when visiting a city for the very first time.  Quite simply, talk to somebody who has gone before you.  I did that several years ago when I first visited Prague, Czech Republic.  It was...

Posted by Leland Brown on

If God is Sovereign over everything, including salvation, why should we share the Gospel? Evangelism is hard and scary and not always fruitful. It may be tempting, especially if we have a strong view of God’s sovereignty, to shirk our responsibility or think it isn’t a big deal if we...

Posted by Andy Boyer on

On Friday evening April 29th at 6:30pm East Cooper Baptist Church will be hosting the Secret Church simulcast.  The story of how this gathering came about in one local church and grew into a national movement of believers is inspiring to me. It reveals a hunger among God’s people for...

Do You Need Help in Answering the Tough Questions?

Posted by Andy Boyer on

People often ask me for resources which will help them answer tough questions from those who would challenge what we believe as Christians.  We call that Apologetics.  Biola University in California is home to one of the premier graduate programs in the defense of the Christian...

Words of Worship

Posted by Van Barnhill on

For several weeks there has been a song stuck in my head. When I’m getting ready in the morning I find myself absentmindedly humming it. Walking to my office I’ll start to idly whistling the first few lines. This seems to happen to me a lot and to be honest I usually find it quite...

Planned Parenthood and the Dividing Line

Posted by Buster Brown on

Planned Parenthood, according to their own website, “offers extensive information on birth control and all aspects of sexual and reproductive health.” Last year, Planned Parenthood performed 324,000 abortions and received almost $54 million in subsidies from the U.S. government (The...

Being Passionate for the Long Haul

Posted by Andy Boyer on

Passionately pursuing Jesus Christ is at the center of the East Cooper Baptist Church mission statement.  The passion of youth can be an inspiring thing.  However, the idealism of our college years often fades as we take on responsibilities of jobs, marriage and families.  I...
