Eastside church of Christ Core Beliefs

  • Christ's Headship - We acknowledge Christ as the head of our church and submit ourselves, and all our activities, to His will and good pleasure. (Eph. 1:22-23)
  • Biblical Teaching - We acknowledge the Bible as God's holy and inspired word to mankind. We strive to regularly study, be obedient to, and teach God's word with integrity and authority so that seekers find Christ and believers mature in Him. (II Tim. 3:16)
  • Authentic Worship - We desire to acknowledge God's supremacy and worth in our personal lives and in the corporate worship of our church. We worship Him in spirit and in truth. (Rom. 12:1-2, John 4:23-24)
  • Prayer - We rely on private prayer in our lives and in corporate prayer in the conception, planning, and execution of all the ministries and activities of the church. (Matt. 7:7-11)
  • Sense of Community - We ask all our members to commit to and fully participate in the love, care, and edification of each other. We also ask that each member reach out to save the lost, exercise their gifts, be shepherded, and thus grow in Christ's likeness. (Acts 2:44-46)
  • Family - We support the spiritual nurture of the family as one of God's dynamic means to perpetuate the Christian faith. (II TIm. 1:5)
  • Grace-Orientation - We strive to serve Christ from hearts of love and gratitude, rather than from guilt and condemnation. (Rom. 8: 1-2)
  • Creativity and Innovation - We will continually evaluate our forms and methods, seeking maximum ministry effectiveness for Christ. (I Chron. 12:32)
  • Mobilized Congregation - We seek to equip and support all our uniquely designed and gifted members to effectively accomplish the work of Christ-honoring ministries. (Eph. 4: 11-13)
  • Lost People - We value all people and will use every available Christ-honoring means to teach, convert, and disciple them. (Luke 19:10)
  • Ministry Excellence - Since God gave His best (Jesus, His Son and our Savior), we seek to honor Him by maintaining a high standard of excellence in all our lives, ministries, and activities. (Col. 3: 23-24)
