What we believe...

South Side Christian Church holds Jesus Christ as head of the Church and depends upon the Word of God and the Holy Spirit to guide the church’s activities. We believe:


1.     Jesus is the one and only Son of God, sent to offer salvation through His death on the cross (John 3:16). He is the one and only way to salvation and eternal life (John 14:6).


2.     Salvation is provided by the grace of God and accepted through repentance, baptism by immersion (Acts 2:38), faith in and confession of Jesus Christ as Lord (Romans 10:9).


3.     The Bible is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16), infallible, and inerrant.


4.     The Church exists to provide instruction in the nature of God, fellowship, the weekly observance if the Lord’s Supper, and encouragement of believers (Acts 2:42).


5.     Marriage is ordained by God to be between one man and one woman for life ((Genesis 2:24).


6.     We are called as Christians to demonstrate our love for God through obedience to His Words (John 14:15).


7.     The qualifications for ministers, deacons, elders, and teachers as set forth in 1 Tim 3, Titus 1:5-9, Acts 6:1-6, 1 Pet. 5:1-4, and James 3:1-2 are the standards of appropriate lifestyle for a church leader.
