About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

South Side Vision Statement:

We desire to be a family of believers who lovingly embrace the people of our community and world, desiring to connect them to Jesus Christ through a personal relationship with Him.

Our Mission Statement:

Know Christ - Grow in Christ - Go for Christ

Know Christ

Jesus came to establish a personal relationship with each of us. Therefore we should embrace this privilege, and say as those who knew him best said . . .

"I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead" Philippians 3:10 NLT


Grow in Christ

Jesus loves us the way we are but he also loves us enough to not leave us that way. Salvation is God's gift to us and Spiritual growth is our expression of gratitude for all He has done. Scripture reminds us of this truth saying . . .

"Rather, you must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 3:18 NLT


Go for Christ

Jesus once put his greatest desire for all who followed him into words that became his greatest sermon saying . . .

"Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20 NLT

Who we are

Here at South Side, we care about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. South Side is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.

Where we come from

South Side had its beginnings on October 23rd 1938 with 43 people meeting at a lodge here in Washington Court House. Through the faith of those devoted beginning believers, the church has gone through many transitions and periods of spiritual and numerical growth. Today South Side is a relevant and growing church in our community with over 400 active members.

Where we're headed

Our goal is to connect people to Christ. Just like God, we are more concerned with the inside of a person than the outside. 

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome here! South Side is a non-denominational loving church where you are accepted just as you are. We would love for you to come see what God is doing here. We care about YOU, not what you wear, so come as you are in casual clothes or dress up if you prefer.
