"Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving." — Colossians: 2:7
In order to grow strong, a tree needs to burrow deep into the life-giving earth. And so it is with you. The deeper you root your life in Christ, the stronger you'll become.
Jesus set the example for loving children when He blessed them in Matthew 19, saying, “Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Just as Jesus placed a significant value on children, we desire to impact the lives of this special age group.
The youth ministry at Eastside Baptist Church points teenagers to Christ, helping them become more like Him as they learn to joyfully use their gifts to serve the church family and the broader community. We desire to train young people to be spiritually mature, resulting in a personal thirst for God’s Word, a passion to be more like Him, and a burden to point others to Christ.
