Eastside is a congregation of people "Loving God-Loving Others- Making Disciples-Being Changed!” Join us as we worship, play, serve, learn & grow, & find in Jesus the answer to our needs! EVERYONE is welcome here. We Love God, Love Others, Make Disciples & Let God Change us. We are your FRIENDS and want to assist you, wherever you are on your faith journey. Everyone is welcome here, whatever their past or present. We are loved by God and freely offer that love to you.
We try to help BELIEVERS, who have asked for and received Christ’s forgiveness, as their family, to encourage and help them grow;
We walk beside DISCIPLES, those giving God full control of your life, to lead a vital Christian life through:

  • Practical Biblical teaching;

  • Regular personal Prayer and Bible study;

  • Awesome Worship together

  • Investing in Discipling Others and Godly Friendships

  • Serving Others Personally

  • Extra Times- where God teaches, touches & changes.

Whether you are a friend, believer or disciple, we love you and want to help your life & faith in any way we can.


We do a great deal at Eastside- video monitoring, background checks and training for our children & teen staff, and ongoing support- to make sure everyone is safe and well-cared for here. We also work with our leaders, our government officials and others to make sure that everyone who wants to hear from God is welcome here. It’s part of Loving God, Loving Others & Making Disciples- & it’s who we are.

Raising or Growing them,

but ALWAYS Making Disciples!

Have you led someone to the Lord? Have you discipled someone until they were leading other people to the Lord? Statistics tell us less than 1 in 40 "Christians" do this in our lifetime, but it's the Great Commission, the last instruction from Jesus to his followers. It's what we do at www.EastsideNC.org !
