Parkside Church is proud to be a part of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC), which is a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.

East Coast Conference

Parkside Church is also a part of The East Coast Conference which is a movement of God, organized in 1889 by an immigrant people with a spiritual heritage as Mission Friends. Now a multi-cultural communion of Evangelical Covenant congregations, we are gathered by God, united in Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to obey the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.

The conference is called to carry out our mission to the peoples in twelve east coast states and the District of Columbia: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, eastern New York, New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia.

Believing we are a movement of God, the mission of the Conference is to:

Multiply congregations, by planting new missional churches

Orchestrate ministries, by connecting district churches for shared ministry & mission

Vitalize congregations, by coaching pastors and church leaders to embrace renewal

Empower leaders, by building a culture of trustworthy Christian leadership
