We are people just like you. No matter your age, gender, race or background there is a place for you in our church family. We know we're not perfect and we don't expect you to be either. We know that you have concerns: for yourself, your family, your friends, and we share that with you. And while, we mostly want to get to know you, here is a little bit about us:
Growing fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
It's what we're passionate about. It's what we think about every day. It's the mission God has called South Shores Church to be all about: to reach the lost, grow believers, and empower them for the mission. In other words, we want everyone to be about helping others move forward, to Jesus, one step at a time.
Our values represent what make us South Shores Church: five biblical beliefs intended to guide our family as we grow fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
ANCHORED IN GOD’S WORD
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. – Hebrews 6:19
We long to be shaped and directed by what is true, real, and lasting. The promises of God, declared in His Word and fulfilled in Jesus Christ, provide the hope that will harbor us in rough seas, and navigate toward where God wants us to be.
KNOWN BY LOVE
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. – John 13:35
We want to bring the generosity, compassion, and kindness of Christ into our relationships and community. The Good News of Jesus has freed us to bring grace into the lives of others through loving action and selfless service. In turn, our love will be a reputation that points others to Jesus.
RESCUED TO REACH
Everything is from God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. – 2 Corinthians 5:18
We want every member on mission to advance the Kingdom of God through sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. God has uniquely gifted each one of us and placed us within arm’s reach of people we can impact through Word and Prayer.
PARTNERED IN PRAYER
Devote yourselves to prayer; stay alert in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us that God may open a door to us for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, – Colossians 4:2-3
We take prayer seriously because we take God seriously. Prayer is the relational way we interact with God, partnering with His Spirit and with others to accomplish the mission. Everything at South Shores starts and ends with prayer.
INVESTING IN WHAT’S NEXT
walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; – Colossians 1:10
We want to help people see what is next for their life, as well as what is next for the church. South Shores is committed to developing leaders to bear fruit for the Kingdom of God.
