What We Believe
CAN WE KNOW GOD?
The big question is can we know God, or even be known by God? At Southside we believe that God shows himself to us clearly in Jesus. As Jesus entered into a real time and place in history, we see who God is, what God is like, and what that means for us.
THE GOD OF LOVE
All through the Bible we see that God is a God of love. This is a great idea, but means nothing if we don't see what that actually means or looks like.
As we look to Jesus, what we see is God's love on display. God loved the world that Jesus died for the world, so that whoever believes in him can have life. A life of purpose here and now, and a hope for eternity later.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR ME?
As a church, we know that God's love isn't for the people that have it all together. We know God loves the world - all people - whether you are young, old, male, female, broken, weak, lost, questioning, confused, or anything else.
We also know that God's love isn't given to those who do the right things, but to those who trust in Jesus who has done everything. That's why Christianity is based on Jesus' death and resurrection.
