Thank you for joining us on our website!

We believe that you have just found one of the finest churches in Lakeland.   For us, it is certainly becoming one of the most exciting!  When you walk through our doors we pray that you will experience the energy of our earnest efforts to welcome you and your family. You will find a variety of age groups and ethnic groups represented here. We desire to be a "whosoever" church (Jn. 3:16), and we are eager to have you feel at home and loved here with us.  We are relevant in the way we present the Gospel without compromising the message.
 
After you read this page, be sure to check out our various Life Connection groups in "Connect" and "Ministries" through the links above, as well as this "Events" link, and The Weekly link.  We are sure you will find something to interest you!
 
As you experience one of our services, you may see people raising their hands in worship as an outward expression of adoration and surrender to God (Psalms 134:2).  Prompted by the Holy Spirit, you may hear messages of worship and encouragement given in another language and then an interpretation given so that all may be inspired and encouraged. This is referred to in scripture as "tongues and interpretation", and is an encouraged practice of a New Testament church (1 Corinthians 12-14).  Our music is multifaceted in scope as we sincerely appreciate all styles of music and drama expressions that exalt the name of Christ.
 
The love and care of your children and grandchildren are a top priority to us. An age specific ministry schedule exists for all ages from birth to twelve years of age. We work and pray to make sure your children enjoy church and encounter God in both a safe and positive environment.
 
Above all, we pray you will feel the presence of the Holy Spirit moving in the service.  Our desire is that everyone Experience Life, the life that can only be found through a personal encounter with Christ.
 
Testimonies of divine healing and lives being changed are common in our services as we meet in God’s presence.  Our goal is to see a change in people that only God can bring about.  We strongly encourage people to respond to the voice of the Holy Spirit as He speaks to their heart so they may encounter the love, grace, and loving correction of the Holy Spirit.
 
We hope you will come and check us out, and it is our prayer that Southside AG will become your weekly place of worship.  We exist to serve you in any manner possible through Christ.  If you have questions please feel free to call our church office at (863) 646-8050 from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday through Thursday.  Any of our staff will be happy to assist.
 
Once again, thank you for joining us on our website.  May God richly bless you today!
