Who Are We
Southside Baptist Church was established in Granbury, Texas in 1955. There is a
unique role for a smaller, community church. Like a family, members know each
other’s names and work together in small teams. There is a place for very large
churches, but also smaller churches. Southside Baptist is a friendly welcoming
church with opportunities for everyone to serve. Here, you are not just a
number, but a valued person known by the pastor individually. Together, we
grow in our relationship with Christ.
What We Do
We serve the Lord through worship with praise and prayer every Sunday
morning. Additionally, members have opportunities to serve in many
outreach programs such as our food pantry, meals for poor children, missions,
Christmas packages for children in foreign countries, a diaper ministry, vacation
Bible school, an annual blood drive, family fest in October, and Sunday night
programs that include excellent speakers, concerts, and Christian films. Every
Sunday morning, members and visitors may join our prayer group. Every
Monday evening, the pastor teaches a bible study. There are Sunday School
classes and children’s activities, too.
What We Believe
We are “People of the Book” which means we believe the Holy Bible is our
ultimate source of truth, inspired and without error. We believe in One God
revealed in the Trinity – God the Father (creator), God the Son (incarnated as a
human in Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit (power of God drawing people
toward salvation). We believe we are saved by grace and faith in Jesus who paid
the price for our sins by his death on a cross and his resurrection.
Jesus is the Son of God who became a human and died on a cross for
our sins and was resurrected from the dead. He is the true Messiah
and Savior of the world.
A Christian is a person “born again” by the Spirit of God who puts
their faith and trust in Jesus and follows his teachings.
What does it mean to be Christian?
The role of the church is to make disciples who evangelize and serve,
growing in their faith through worship, fellowship, and leaders
teaching and preaching biblical truth.
