At Eastside, our passion and mission is to love Jesus, grow in community and serve the world.
God’s intended purpose for us is to live a fulfilled life in relationship with Him. Because of our own sin, our relationship with God was broken. Faith in Jesus, who is the Son of God and willingly died on the cross for the payment of our sin, restores our relationship with God. (John 3:16)
We believe the Bible is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the person of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work”. (2 Timothy 3:16) We believe the Bible is whole, complete, and without error, and is relevant to speak to the issues of today.
The church isn’t a building. It's people who are equipped to serve and meet needs everywhere in the name of Jesus. The church is God’s people doing the work of Jesus out in the world doing the work of the church. (1 John 4:17)
The Foursquare Movement
Eastside Church is associated with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, which is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. The word foursquare represents the four-fold ministry of Jesus as seen in the Gospels: Jesus Christ is the Savior, Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, Healer, and Soon-Coming King. The Foursquare Church has a rich history of being inter-denominational, Spirit-led, and focused on evangelism and caring for those in need.
