Richmond is a beautiful collection of neighborhoods where people of various backgrounds work, play, and discover meaning. It is a city marked by the very fingerprint of God. Yet Richmond is also in need of God’s grace. Mingled with all that is good, Richmond struggles with division, discontentment and spiritual homesickness. South City Church was planted to extend the hospitality of Christ who gives us a home and makes us a family.
As a church, we envision, pray towards, and are slowly becoming a people who embody the Gospel in all of life. We are becoming a people who promote the common good of our city. We are becoming a people who overcome barriers of difference for the sake of God's glory being reflected in the unity of his people. We are becoming a people who equip one another to join God’s mission of restoration in ever sphere of life.
Jesus moved into the human neighborhood. He lived for us. He died for us. He rose from the grave conquering sin and death for us. In him, we are "no longer strangers and outcasts, but fellow citizens with all the saints and members of the household of God" (Eph. 2:19). Our story is one of strangers made family in Christ.
