At Eastside we are fundamentally governed by God’s Word (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and believe it is the supreme standard by which all human conduct and opinions should be tried. While we are fundamentally governed by the Bible, there are other documents that help us in the day-to-day governance of operating a church. We recognise that these documents are not on equal footing with the Bible; that is, they do not hold the same authority in our life as the Bible, however, we do think there are important documents that serve important purposes. These documents consist of our Members Covenant, Affirmation of Faith (Statement of Faith), Consitution, and positional papers on various theological matters. All of these documents can be viewed on our beliefs page.
To provide further clarity and direction around administration issues and to assist with the day-to-day running of Eastside, we also have a number of policies in place. These policies are designed to support the wise and prudent running of the church.
