EXPERIENCE ALL GOD HAS FOR YOU!

  • March 26, 2018

Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Dear Fellow Christians, We know you are going through a situation in your life right now that is requiring you to trust in the Lord to work on your behalf. We want to assure you that God has your best in mind, yet obedience is such an important aspect of anything we do for the Lord, and the way we live on a day to day basis. It is often so tempting to trust in our own abilities, talents, and gifts that have propelled our lives to where we […]

REPENT AND BE BAPTIZED IN WATER

  • February 28, 2018

Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Are you considering getting baptized in water in accordance with the Holy Scriptures? This is an awesome and powerful part of God’s plan for our lives, and by obeying Him in this act, you show your willingness to trust your life to Him. The Bible is clear about the importance of being fully immersed in baptism.  The reason is simple.  The word “baptism” in the original Greek “baptidzo” means to “make fully wet” and to “overwhelm with water.”  So the very word baptism tells us that immersion is how […]

THANK YOU, PASTOR!

  • December 4, 2017

Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Pastor Randy Brown, we wanted to take this opportunity during the Christmas Season to express our thanks and appreciation for all you do, and more importantly, WHO you are as we serve together here at Southside Baptist Church.  Perhaps as we work together on a regular basis, it might seem that we become used to it and fail to indicate properly how much we need each other, not only as staff members, but also as brothers in Christ.  With that being said, as your deacons we would like once […]

  • November 1, 2017

Greetings in the Name of our Risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! We are looking forward to the tremendous things God is going to do through the ministries of Southside Baptist Church as we move through the Fall Season. Many of our ministries are gearing up to be stronger than ever before as they seek to be a blessing to both our church and community. Time is one of those things we all have on our hands. We might feel we have little time or a lot of time, but the reality of it is that we ALL have the […]

EVANGELISM

“JUST WALK ACROSS THE ROOM”

  • October 3, 2017

Have you ever wondered how you can get involved in evangelism? Some people hear the word “evangelism” and immediately put up the stop sign in their minds, believing it’s only for the bold and bombastic who are strong enough to share their faith. Yet, we want to share a wonderful concept with you that was originally shared by Pastor Bill Hybels of Willow Creek Church in a message entitled “Just Walk Across the Room.” It soon became a book by the same title. For us to have an impact on people around us, the idea is to take the initiative by […]

  • September 7, 2017

It’s that time again! We know it must seem hard to believe, but Summer break is over, and it’s time for School!

We want to take this opportunity to encourage you to take advantage of every learning possibility presented to you in the days, weeks and months ahead.  From our own personal experience, we can assure you that while the years […]

TO THE DISCOURAGED CHRISTIAN!

  • August 1, 2017

We understand that you are going through a difficult time right now. We wanted to encourage you that God cares about you very much, and His desire is for you to find peace and joy in Him. This world can be a sad and scary place at times.  We must remember that this world is not our home, and that even in the midst of the worst day of our lives, God is still in control.  We don’t always understand why He lets certain things happen the way they do, but we must trust Him. Job gives us a beautiful […]

CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP!

  • July 1, 2017

Yes, “Christian Fellowship” is an integral part of church life. We all need it, whether we like to admit it or not, especially as Christians! Acts 2:42 42 “They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” There is something powerful about having fellowship and camaraderie with one another that helps us get through the bumps and bruises of life. One reason being with others is so helpful, especially as we go through difficult times is that we begin to realize in the course of conversation that there are […]

CHILDREN – THE NEXT GENERATION

  • June 10, 2017

Dear Southside Baptist Church Members, With the heat of summer comes Vacation Bible School and more young lives to bring to know Jesus through our ministry. As the children in our area get out of school, it brings a new level of energy and excitement to the community. It also brings us more opportunities to witness to them and show them the love of God. Your blessing, prayer and support this month will be used to help those who will be working with children – some of whom have never gone to church or heard of God. It is our […]

SHARING THE GOSPEL

  • May 4, 2017

Greetings in the Name of our Risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! One of the most discouraging aspects of sharing the Gospel is knowing that so many people will reject the message, and even at times reject the messenger…you. At times, we might think that if we could just be a bit more like Jesus then everyone would accept this message because we would minister the way He wants us to minister. We would share the exact words they need to hear to make the decision for Christ. Yet, let us remind you that even Jesus Himself was often “despised […]
