So what are we all about? In a word: Jesus. That’s it. He is our reason for everything. Because of His finished work on the cross, we can live. And we want everyone to experience the same abundance of life that only comes from Him.
More specifically, we believe God has purposely placed us near the heart of the city of Birmingham to be the hands and feet to those close by.
To unify in Christ together to reach people with the Gospel
Preparing people to encounter God
Through evangelism, worship, discipleship, ministry, and fellowship, The Church at Southside wants to model Christ in all we do. We have a heart for the city of Birmingham, the nations, and the least of these. In all things, we put our hope in Jesus and His Gospel to change lives. He is our first love and only hope for all people. We are His Church and we exist for Him.
We are made up of people from many denominational backgrounds. We each love and respect the different denominations from which we all come. We do have strong beliefs, all of which are centered around Jesus and His Gospel. In a city historically infamous for discord, we choose to unify in Christ alone and the essentials of the Gospel, allowing all else to be considered secondary. What does that look like?
We preach Jesus as the only way to a relationship with God.
We are called to make disciples, who make disciples, who make disciples to the ends of the Earth.
We want to love and minister to all individuals we meet along this journey.
While many feel the city of Birmingham is a lost cause, we believe as the Bluetree song “God of This City” says: “Greater things have yet to come, and greater things are still to be done in this city!”
