Missions plays an important role at Southside Baptist Church.
We believe that God has given the church the Great Commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations. We believe the Gospel is for every nation, tribe, ethnic, and language group, and that God desires salvation for every person. (2 Peter 3:9). We believe every Christian is an ambassador of Christ, and must pursue all available means to go to the lost both at home and to foreign nations and not wait for them to come to us (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; John 20:21; Acts 1:8; II Corinthians 5:20).
Southside Baptist Church supports both foreign and domestic missionaries who are taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. We also feel privileged to have several families sent out from Southside to serve the Lord around the world. Dozens of others are supported financially by the church. It is our privilege to labor together with these faithful servants of the Lord.
