East Cobb began its life in the 1980's as a church plant of Perimeter Church. While we are a young church, we have not forgotten our connection to the historic Christian faith expressed in all the ecumenical creeds (e.g. the Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed). We are a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), a denomination that is national in scope. We subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith, and like all Bible-believing Presbyterians, we confess what is known as the Reformed faith. If you are unfamiliar with the Reformed faith, a brief statement can be found by reading the attached PDF About the Reformed Faith.
COMMITTED DISCIPLES OF CHRIST
At East Cobb, we are seeking to make committed disciples of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit - disciples who live such distinctive lifestyles that the entire city is impacted! The deep community we share causes us to love one another deeply and encourages us to look beyond ourselves to the needs of those around us. We're excited that God is allowing us to establish relationships with brothers and sisters in all areas of the city. We don't want to live in a bubble in the suburbs of Atlanta! In fact, we exist to bring the resources of the historic Christian faith to bear on Atlanta in the hope that visible changes will occur in the quality of its life - spiritually, socially and materially.

THE PEOPLE OF ECPC
While some churches are almost completely for those skeptical of historic Christianity, others are for those who are seeking Christ or are new to the faith, and still others exclusively for longtime believers, we long to be a church for those all along the spectrum -- the skeptic, the seeker, the new convert, the growing or struggling Christian. We point them all to Christ alone as their only hope. We are convinced that if you are open to us, you can experience the warm life of our shared community and sense for yourself the hope we have that arises out of the gospel. The gospel has bought us a new intimacy with God that you can taste in our worship. And it calls us to a life purpose that is beyond ourselves as we give ourselves away to further God's kingdom. We would very much like you to share our joy. If you are unfamiliar with the gospel, you will find a brief explanation on our "Good News" page.
