Knowing Christ & His Power
To Change Both Life & Eternity

About Us

East Baptist Church is a diverse group of believers from many different backgrounds.  We are dedicated to glorifying God by building up followers of Christ–laborers who teach others to live out the love of Christ and share the good news of His life, death, and resurrection.  We come from different walks and backgrounds, but our personal encounters with Jesus Christ and His forgiveness and freedom, offered through turning in faith from ourselves to Him, has made us into one united body of believers.

We are a Church where you will find the Bible, not just referenced, but preached and taught as God’s very word and relevant message for us in our challenging times.

We are a Church that has not yet arrived fully at what God will have us become, but who are still learning and growing into a body of mature, Spirit-filled believers with Jesus as our leader. Our members are admittedly imperfect; but we gather together to encourage, challenge, hold accountable, and spur one another on towards becoming more like Christ Jesus in love and truth.

We are a Church excited about joining God in His great, unstoppable Mission and promise of seeing Christ-exalting worshipers from every group of people on Earth.  We believe we are to join God in this endeavor locally, nationally, and overseas and that He has set us up in this diverse city of Charlotte for a reason!

So come and join us in drawing close to God, becoming more like Him, and taking His love and good news to the world around us!  Here you won’t just be a face or number, but a name, a friend, and a brother/sister who has a vital part in God’s plan!
