About Our Ministry

"Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep;
for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.."
Romans 13:11
Awakening means a revival of interest or attention; a recognition, realization, or coming into awareness of something; or an arousal from sleep. 
The purpose of the Christian life can be summed up simply as, "love God with all you are, love your neighbor as yourself, and go make disciples."  Too often, we slumber through amazing opportunities to share Christ's love with others.  It's time to WAKE UP!
At Eastside, we seek to have our lives transformed by Christ and be equipped to do His work.  We believe in a relational, incarnational, and discipleship-oriented ministry which transcends barriers and meets people right where they are with the transforming love of God.
Awakening is our Wednesday night Bible Study.
Catalyst is our Sunday night Outreach Program.
