What you will discover at Eastside:
WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE BELIEVE
Place to Belong
We have been welcomed into God’s family; we welcome everyone into our family of faith.
People who are Kind
We are loved and forgiven by God; we choose to love and forgive each other.
Process to Become
We are designed in the likeness of God; we encourage one another to become more like Jesus.
Promise of Purpose
We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to engage in the mission of God.
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, without fault, 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. (1 John 4:17)
God’s intended purpose for us is to live a fulfilled life in relationship with Him. Because of sin, our relationship with God was broken. Jesus, who is the Son of God, willingly died on the cross for the payment of our sin. Faith in Jesus restores our relationship with God. (John 3:16)
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.
