join the family

We're so glad you're interested in joining our East Side family. It's an important step as a believer to commit to a local church body. 


We believe becoming a ministry partner through membership is important for every believer because through it, we establish a lifestyle of Christian fellowship, accountability, and spiritual growth. 

All those desiring to join the family of East Side are asked to attend The Journey.

There are 4 steps to The Journey:

  • Starting Point - Learn more about the mission & vision of East Side
  • Essentials - Grow deeper in understanding the doctrine and spiritual disciplines of our faith.
  • PLACE - Find your place in ministry by discovering your spiritual gifts, abilities, personality, and life experiences.
  • Community - Get encouraged by seeing what Biblical community looks like.

It's after Starting Point & Essentials that one is eligible to become a ministry partner through membership.

Hang tight while we prepare your form...

baptism

We believe baptism is an important step of obedience for every person who has made Jesus Lord and Savior of their lives. Salvation and baptism are not the same thing. Salvation occurs when a person places their complete faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for sin. Just like a bride and groom show their love for one another by wearing wedding bands, your baptism is an opportunity to show others that you belong to Jesus and will follow Him all the days of your life. It symbolizes what took place in your heart when you were saved. We immerse at East Side because we believe scripture shows that Jesus modeled that for us as the way to publicly acknowledge our faith in Him.
