Our Services

What is the community like?
Southside Baptist, a baptist church Chesapeake VA, strongly believes in sharing the hope, peace, purpose, and life of Jesus Christ that is illustrated through the life stories and teachings in the Bible. This is really our singular purpose for existing as set forth by Jesus Christ Himself in Matthew 28:16-20.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Perhaps you are wondering how would Jesus add value to your life? Well, one way is through the hope that he provides! “Jesus produces hope- Hope is defined as expecting with confidence, or being optimistic. Most people tie hopefulness to security about the future. Jesus produces hope through providing true security. Real security is not in knowing the future. It comes through placing your life in the hands of Jesus, who holds the future. He is described in scripture as our “blessed hope”! The hope produced by Christ begins in this life and continues forever, “What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have Him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now!” (1 Peter 1:3-5, The Message).”
