Howard Thurman wrote “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Our mission is to practice resurrection individually, corporately, and universally. From our hearts to the world – we are a community who is about seeing that which has died enter into new life.
To be a vibrant, growing congregation who embodies the local culture and ethos of Atlanta’s east side through our embrace of a creative, inclusive, justice oriented expression of the historic Christian faith emerging from our United Methodist roots.
OUR MISSION: PRACTICE RESURRECTION:
We seek to become a progressive, intentional expression of historic, orthodox Christianity on Atlanta’s east side. It is our mission to be the Church to our community through embodying a visible, tangible, practice orientated Christianity. As a local manifestation of the Christian faith on metro Atlanta’s east side we hope to embody the love of God through our intentional practice of this startling and unsettling surprise we call resurrection.
At Eastside Church, we hope to exist as a conduit in the world whereby God’s transforming, restoring, and renewing power can infiltrate and flow into all of creation. We believe the renovation of the world starts with resurrection in the human heart. Therefore, at Eastside Church we hope to inspire and enable folks to experience and practice this resurrection in their daily lives through powerful, transformative encounters with the living God.
