WHO WE ARE
We are ordinary people. We have families without children, families expecting children, families with many children, and families whose children have left the home. We have single men and women. We have single moms. We have single dads. And we’ve realized that without a community of people that know you, really know you, it’s possible to be alone even in a city of millions.
We face difficult issues, unique challenges, and hopeful opportunities. We rejoice together in moments of gladness, and we mourn together in moments of sadness. Through Christ’s finished work on the cross, we find truth, grace, and the courage to be vulnerable.
Thats what we’ve experienced on Sunday mornings and in our small groups. We stopped hiding or trying to be perfect. We found a place where we could say things like, “I’m not the only one that struggles with that?” and “You know where I’m coming from?” Pretense disappears as we grow closer to one another in the richness of God’s love. By sharing our hearts and lives, we experience deep friendships with those who seek to discover all that God has in store for His children.
Southpointe Community Church is an organization, but it’s not just an organization … it’s a vision, a movement and a mindset. We are called to bring the Southpointe area into a life changing encounter with the Kingdom of God.
We exist for three reasons:
Christ: Our desire is to make the person of Jesus Christ the unavoidable issue in all things, to all people (rather than Christ being familiar, yet peripheral to life).
Community: Our desire is to see people woven into a bigger story where their lives are able to experience love and they are able to make a significant contribution (rather than being merely affiliated with an organization).
Cause: SPCC exists to be a missional organization (rather than a group of religious consumers).
We are called by God to participate with Him in His redemptive work of “making all things new”
We are called by God to make a substantive, eternal difference in people, places and things
We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts.
The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.
We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save.
We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.
We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
