Eastridge exists to make heaven crowded.

That's what we're about, that's who we are, and we'd love for you to join us.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Top 5
1) THE WORD OF GOD
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
2) THE TRINITY
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence, and redemption.
3) GOD THE FATHER
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of people, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
4) JESUS CHRIST
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.
5) THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.

WHAT WE VALUE
No Perfect People Allowed:
Walk in to the door, attend online, become a part of a ministry as you are. We are all learning and growing together, so it's okay if we don't have it all together right away.
We're willing to do anything short of sin to make heaven crowded. That means we'll try different ways to make sure the Gospel is made known in Duluth, Minnesota, our country, and the world.
Everyone who walks through our door is a VIP. We are always expecting someone new to come to ECC, and its our goal to help them experience the warmth of feeling at home and that their people are here too.
We teach the Bible here in ways that you can apply it to your everyday life. Our hope is that our messages are memorable, portable, and emotional, inspiring you to grow in your faith.
Just because you can doesn't mean you always should. We focus on doing a few things with excellence instead of doing many things poorly while empowering others with their passions.
We're driven to facilitate as many connections between people as possible so they can become deeper with one-another and deepen their walk with God.
God doesn't only work on Sundays, we shouldn't either. We strive to expand your faith by giving you the knowledge, the wisdom and the tools to go beyond the regular one hour time slot to everyday of the week.
Everybody is following a leader; so if you're not following, you're not learning. We value leadership and investing in leaders because one day they'll be leading the church.
