Next Steps Membership Class We meet in the Worship Center at 9:30am the third Sunday of the month. During thus time our pastors will share information on how we function as a church body of believers, as well as information on our staff, pastors, elders, and church government. Our pastors will share information about Eastside and explain the process of how you can join our church family. We would love for you to attend this class.
Our Beliefs This doctrinal statement reflects our conservative Baptist tradition which is consistent with the teachings of the Bible and which has stood the test of history and experience. We specifically affirm the following doctrinal truths:
Leadership Rather than a single head pastor, our church has a leadership team of three elders who serve the church. Dr. Bob Halstead is our teaching pastor, Mike Martin is our missions pastor, and Caleb Halstead is our worship and student pastor.
History Eastside Baptist Church of Atlanta was constituted in 1910 at 102 Flat Shoals Avenue SE, Atlanta, GA. This is in the community called Reynoldstown in East Atlanta. From 1919 until 1944 Eastside had many wonderful pastors minister in this location. In 1945 Eastside called Rev. Guy Rainwater to serve as pastor. Pastor Rainwater served Eastside for 37½ years.
Connection Groups Our Connection Groups are the place we desire every one of our members and regular attendees to be involved. It is in these small groups that true friendship, encouragement and accountability can be found. These elements are essential for making disciples who make disciples. It's how we connect people to the lifestyle and mission of Jesus.
