Who We Are


To help people at Southside...

  • Connect in a healthy relationship with God and one another.

  • Discover the fulfilling life that God has planned for us.

  • Take care of one another.

  • Reach out to all people with the Good News of who Jesus is and what He offers.

  • Worship God with our lives.

  • Invest in our community.


The values of a church shape what - and who - it is. Southside has ten core values that are highlighted here, along with the Biblical reasoning for each value.


  • We believe that the Bible is true and that its teaching is the catalyst for life-change in individual's lives and in the church. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; James 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12; Acts 2:42; 20:32)

  • We believe that lost people matter to God and the church. (Luke 5:30-32; Luke 15:1-7; Matthew 18:14)

  • We believe that the church should be culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally pure. (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)

  • We believe that followers of Christ should manifest authenticity and strive for continuous spiritual growth. (Ephesians 4:25-26 and 32; Philippians 1:6; Romans 8:29; Hebrews 12:1; 1 Corinthians 3:1-3)

  • We believe that the church should operate as a unified community of servants stewarding their spiritual gifts. (Romans 12:6-8; Ephesians 4:7-13; 1 Corinthians 12:4-31)

  • We believe that loving relationships should permeate every aspect of church life. (1 Corinthians 13:1-13; Matthew 22:36-40; John 13:34-35; John 15:12-17; Matthew 5:43-48)

  • We believe that life-change happens best through relationships. (Luke 6:12-13; Acts 2:44-47)

  • We believe that excellence honors God and inspires people. (Colossians 3:17; Malachi 1:6-14; Proverbs 27:17)

  • We believe that churches should be led by those with leadership gifts and structured according to the nature and mission of the church. (Romans 12:8; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; Ephesians 4:11-16; Acts 6:2-5)

  • We believe that the pursuit of full devotion to Christ and His cause is normal for every Believer. (Matthew 6:33; Matthew 22:36-40; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:1-18)


We are a Southern Baptist Church and the specifics of our doctrine are outlined in The Baptist Faith and Message.
