We are excited to announce that the state laws now permit us to loosen the restrictions that have been in place at Eastville Baptist this last year! As of May 16th, we no longer require those who are fully vaccinated to wear masks. As of May 30th, we will no longer require social distancing or masks in general!
7/5 - 10/4/20.
In uncertain and uncomfortable times, this series goes back to the basics of the very first book of the Bible, reclaiming the roots of our redemption. From the image of God in every individual to the cosmic agenda of our Creator, Genesis gives us the hope of a new start and a fresh perspective!
10/18 - 12/20/20.
If the previous series unpacked the larger-than-life purposes of God in human history, then what does being a Christian today have to do with it? The book of Ephesians draws out the fruits of redemption in Christ, defining what it means to be His, what it means to be a church, and what it means to live that out.
1/3 - 5/9/21.
While personal freedom is so important to us, the book of Exodus shows us what real freedom really looks like. By reliving this movement that echoes through the Scriptures down to Jesus and His followers, we come to understand the true nature of bondage, and what it means to be free by being bound to a perfect Master.
5/30/21 - Present.
How do church communities become the kind of families Jesus calls them to be? Each week, we explore a key practice that the Word of God guides us in for our life together. From giving thanks, to showing hospitality, to sacrificing, forgiving, and more, these are the gospel-driven, Spirit-led habits that we can’t do on our own and can’t do without!
Take a look at our mission statement and goals for the year, and take a listen to Pastor Andrew's sermon from Matthew 5:13-16 laying out what Christ calls us to as His Church!
The front page of Eastville Baptist Church’s Sunday bulletin reads: “Lord, make the doors of this Thy Church broad enough to receive all who are in need, but narrow enough to keep out hate; open to understanding and righteousness, but closed to all untruth, that we might worship Thee in the beauty of holiness.”
Here at EBC we are dedicated to the good news of Jesus Christ as seen in the unfolding story of the Bible. We warmly welcome you to experience it here with us, responding to God as He reveals Himself in His Word. Rather than hoarding the grace He's shown us, we want to bless our community with it. We seek to be a shelter for the hurting and a loving presence to those in need. Through the Scriptures and these tangible efforts, we hope you will glimpse the justice, mercy, beauty, and heart of the incredible God who redeems us!
Andrew grew up in the Midwestern flatlands of Omaha, Nebraska, cheering on the Cornhuskers with his parents, brother, and grandma (the biggest fan of the group). Though raised in a Christian home, it was not until his teenage years that he was forced to think through what the gospel of Christ really meant. That shift in his life brought about a passion for understanding God’s Word and for helping others understand it, too. With encouragement from his church and an excitement for ministry, he went on to attend Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. It was there that he met Stephanie, and it was there that they had their first year together as a married couple some three years later.
Stephanie and Andrew both graduated from Moody with a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Languages and Biblical Exposition, respectively. They also attended and graduated from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School together, each receiving their Master of Divinity in 2019. Andrew enjoys making board games, computer programming, writing music, and taking walks to get his eyes off the screens and books.
We'd love for you to join us in our indoor services at the church, Sundays at 11am! Masks are required for the duration of the service to keep everyone safe.
