Purpose

PURPOSE STATEMENT

Southside Baptist Church is a family of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, who rely on the Holy Bible as our guide and authority; who exist for the purpose of worshipping, exalting God, evangelizing unbelievers, disciple believers, and impacting society all for the glory of God.

EVANGELIZING UNBELIEVERS:

Southside Baptist Church exists to fulfill the right of every person to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ in language that can be understood.  We believe that it is the individual and collective responsibility of our church family to seek out, communicate boldly and urgently this message to all who have not received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and follow Him into beliver's baptism.

Included in this responsibility is our commitment to particpate cooperatively in home and international missions.

DISCIPLE BELIEVERS:

Southside Baptist Church exists to help believers build upon and maintain a foundation of Biblical understanding; establish and sustain a devotional life; discover and use their spiritual gifts; and understand and apply the biblical principle of stewardship in every aspect of life.  We also desire to encourage, inspire, and equip believers to become participating members who build up the body of Christ.
