From the EastLake Community Church website in Bothell, Washington:
It’s probably important to start by making it clear that we’re not the ones who “finally go the Bible right.” Neither do we possess the secret to life, exclusive access to GOD or “Seven Steps to Satisfaction.” We are, however, powerfully drawn to the person of Jesus, his teaching and even more so, his life. So we are experimenting, and failing, and building a community that collectively follows his Way; hoping, trusting and even doubting that it might seed something beautiful in the world. Namely; full and abundant life for all creation. We think the TRUTH about LIFE may just be LOVE and LOVE may just be the WAY.
Isn’t that refreshing?
