Passion for Christ, Compassion for Others


God’s grand design for all of creation— an orientation toward God, that we might all worship Him with one heart and voice.


As Christians, it is important that we take responsibility for helping other Christians live out their faith and persevere in the Christian life.


Each born-again Christian has received gifts from the Holy Spirit that are meant to serve others in the church and build up the body of Christ.

South Church’s ministries are active. Join us by taking part in our upcoming and continuing events.
