What we believe

What is the Gospel?


God is the only sovereign, wise, and good Creator of all things, who reigns as King over all creation for His own glory.

ROMANS 11:33-36


Human beings were made in God’s image to love and worship Him forever. But ever since Adam first rebelled against God, we have all been lost in sin, under God’s judgment, and unable to save ourselves.



Out of undeserved love and grace, God sent His only Son to save us from sin and reconcile us to Himself through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

JOHN 3:16


God offers us His gift of salvation by grace, which we receive through faith in Jesus. He makes us new, calls us to leave sin behind, and invites us to join His work in the world.


Pastors & staff

Jason Rehmel

Lead Pastor

Jason has been on staff at Eastside since 2007, when he started serving as the Executive pastor. In 2010, he became the Lead Pastor. Jason loves being in ministry and he knows it is what God created him for… actually it is one of three things God created him for… The other two? To be the best possible husband that he can be to his beautiful wife Tera and to be a connected and loving dad for their two amazing kids. In ministry, the two most fulfilling aspects for Jason are preaching and building connections with people. In his personal life, Jason loves traveling, going to his kids’ sporting events, and spending time with friends while eating great food and sharing stories. 1 John 2:6 says, “whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked,” and it is advice he tries to follow daily.

Brock Heitkamp

Creative Arts Pastor

Brock is the Creative Arts Pastor here at Eastside. Corporate Worship is the place where the body of Christ is gathered together for the purpose of bring God honoring praise.
