Eastside Community COGIC
Mission and Vision Statements


Mission Statement


The primary mission of Eastside Community Church of God in Christ is to function as a light to all people, regardless of nation creed or tongue.  We endeavor to meet the needs of mankind emotionally, financially, physically, and spiritually, enabling them to become spiritually sound, vibrant members of society. We will accomplish this by reaching out to the children of this lost generation through bible training, mentoring, and providing a loving, nurturing environment for them and their families to attend worship.  For we know----

If we work upon marble,

It will perish;

If we work upon brass,

Time will efface it;

If we rear temples,

They will crumble into dust;

But, if we work upon immortal souls,

If we instill them with principles,

With the just fear of God,

And the love of fellow man,

We engrave on those tablets,

Something which will brighten all eternity.

                                     Daniel Webster



Vision Statement


…lo, a great multitude which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne,…Revelation 7:9b


Our vision is to see a culturally diverse, spirit filled, body of baptized believers, who are educated in scripture knowledge, filled with Godly wisdom, and living victoriously, righteous lives that will enhance our community.
