Mission & Vision

Go therefore and make disciples...

The Mission

Each Sunday at Southside you can expect great music, encouraging messages, and a family type atmosphere, each of which paves the way for genuine encounters with our God. The church should never be a place where you’re bored to tears, but instead a place that is filled with excitement about our God and His plan for the people of the earth.

At Southside, we feel like it’s OUR responsibility to make you feel welcome, and not your job to try and fit in. We know what it’s like to visit a church and feel like an “outsider”, and we don’t want you to feel that way here. We are a family here at Southside, and when you come and visit, we want you to feel like you’re already a part of our family.

Perhaps the best thing about Southside is that what you learn on the weekend, you’ll be able to use during the week. It can be very frustrating to go to a church and leave not knowing what to do. We do our best to give you practical “next steps” that you can use throughout your week.

We certainly hope that this website helps you to get a personal and friendly first look at Southside, but we want to be sure and let you know that this is just a website. The best way to find out all that’s here for you and your family is to visit us this weekend.

If it’s been a long time since you’ve been to church, what are you waiting for? Come visit us soon!
