About Us

The Southside church of Christ is a family of believers who meet every first day of the week to worship God and encourage each other. Our worship is governed by Jesus’ affirmation in John 4:24, “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

 

What does the Bible tell us to do in worshipping God? The Lord’s church assembled on the first day of the week, Sunday, to partake of the Lord’s supper Acts 20:7. This was done to begin the new week with a solemn remembrance of the Lord’s death 1 Corinthians 11:23-26.

 

The early Christians sang praises to God (Ephesians 5:19). Our singing is not for entertainment, but serves the purpose of teaching and admonition, as taught in Colossians 3:16. Prayer characterized the early church (Acts 2:42) as it will our service. The success of the First Century Church as it is today, is due to its fervently praying members.

 

At our Sunday service on the first day of the week we will take up a collection to support the work of the church (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). And, each Sunday we will receive knowledge from lessons humbly presented by our Gospel preacher (Acts 20:7).
