Preparing people for life and eternity. We have been serving the Lord in the community of Decatur, Illinois, for over 100 years. While the times have changed, our Biblical mandate has not. We are a Bible-based ministry that exists to glorify God by reaching the world for Christ and making disciples who are sincere in worship, unified in love, and equipped for service. Our desire at East Park Baptist Church is to prepare people to know Christ fully, proclaim Him fervently, and serve Him faithfully..
