About Southside Christian Church

Southside Christian Church is an independent non-denominational church governed by an elected group of elders and deacons and devoted to providing a warm and caring atmosphere for worship. The church owns its facilities which include a multi-function worship hall on 20 acres of land that has space to accommodate 500 people for service. Ultimately we exist to honor God, which we do by pursuing these three core tenants:
  • Live together as a family that serves one another and our community.
  • Making clear the good news of God's love and grace.
  • Leading people to live as fully devoted followers of Jesus.
We believe these three things are not independent of one another, they are by nature closely related and each one contributes to the others. More information on Southside Christian Church can be found at our website: www.southsidecc.org.
