Eastside Baptist Church — 30 years later !
It was in the June of 1985 that the Eastside Baptist Church was constituted by 21 founder members under the leadership of Pastor Charles Whitson .
God had blessed us almost right away with a suitable property on the corner of Hebenstreit Street and Mission Road in Ludwigsdorf. The first phase of our building program was completed in 1987.
Many hands have worked on the building since then, and we thank God for them all. Of greater significance is the purpose for which this building was designed. Many people have been worked on by God in these 30 years. Only eternity will reveal what has been accomplished in the souls of men, women and children.
And so it is that with the passing of the years Eastside Baptist Church can increasingly claim to have a history and a heritage! We who are now in the membership of this church, remember that we are enjoying the fruit of dedicated labour of those that have previously worked here. May we be continuously reminded of the purpose for which this church was established - a center to bring God’s people to Christian maturity and to be witnesses to our Lord Jesus Christ.
In commemoration of this event, on Saturday , the 20th of June our congregation will enjoy a thanksgiving lunch together, and on Sunday the 21st June Pastor Callie Rossouw of the Walvis Bay Baptist Church will preach the Word to us
SOLI DEO GLORIA !
