The Purpose Of Our Website
Welcome to the website of the Southside church of Christ. This website is
something we are using in an effort to spread the gospel to the lost (Mark
16:15; II Timothy 2:2, 4:2). We hope this will be beneficial to you in your
daily life. In thinking about this work, I thought it would be good to catalog a
few reasons why this teaching tool is necessary.
1. BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME WHO HAVE NEVER COME TO
It is clear that there are some who have never heard the "glorious gospel
of the blessed God" (I Timothy 1:11). Hopefully, this teaching tool will
help them to come to a knowledge of the Truth before it is too late.
2. TO PROVIDE MEN AND WOMEN WITH LESSONS THAT APPLY
We need to understand that the Bible is not a book for "old" people, nor is
it a book that is outdated. The Word of God is alive and powerful, and has
lessons for us in the 21st century (Hebrews 4:12).
What would you like to study? Please read carefully the following pages of Bible
lessons, and perhaps the things we have posted will be helpful in your Bible
study. Too, please contact us, and we will be glad to discuss and study your
Bible-based questions with you.
3. TO TAKE AWAY AN AVENUE OF INFLUENCE FROM
Satan lays claim to so many things in this world (I John 2:15-17), and not
the least of which is the Internet. This site is a means by which we can take
some things from him! There is no better way to do this than to publish and
distribute Bible lessons and studies through this medium so that people will
know the truth and will live by it (Ephesians 3:4; II Timothy 2:15; John
4. TO SHOW PEOPLE THE TRUE WAY TO CHRIST:
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the
father, but by me" (John 14:6). He also said, "I am the door"
(John 10:9). When He talked about ways to Heaven, He said there was only ONE
way, the "strait and narrow" way (Matthew 7:13-14). The only other
choice is the broad way that leads to destruction. Of course, everyone will make
their choice as to which way they will go, but this website is intended to point
people toward the strait and narrow path that leads to life everlasting!
5. TO PROVIDE AN OCCASION FOR BIBLE STUDY:
Nothing on this website will be said or claimed without a "thus saith the
Lord." Anything else is insulting to God and destructive to man! Only by going
to the Bible for the answers can we find true knowledge. Therefore, through this
website, we provide:
A. Occasions for Private Bible studies
(If you live in or around Daviess county, please write us to request a private
B. Occasions for Public discussions of
issues (The truth has nothing to fear from an open examination of the
Scriptures, and we are "set for the defense of the gospel", Philippians
C. Correspondence courses in which one may enroll (Online
course; Request a correspondence course through snail mail.)
D. A page which has the times of services for the Southside church of Christ,
as well as a map to the church building.
E. A page which records past questions answered on our radio program. If
you'd like, submit a question to be answered on our radio program,
which is aired from 12:30-1:00 PM on WBIO, 94.7 FM, every Sunday afternoon.
F. A page which posts current and past issues of our teaching bulletin, "The
G. Other pages which have several Bible-based lessons for your personal
study. (See the menu on our home page.)
All of these things we do to provide men and women with ample opportunities
to study and read God's word!
We at the Southside church of Christ hope that this website will be
beneficial to all who read its contents in their pursuit and faithful adherence
to the truth of God's word!
