South Woods’ Purpose Statement: We purpose to make disciples who joyfully serve Christ together in ministry and missions.
It is our aim, as a local church of the Lord Jesus Christ, to adorn the gospel of God by ministering to, or serving others. It’s one thing to talk and teach the majestic doctrines of the Bible, but when we are putting our hands and feet to work with the gospel being our impetus and motivation, we collectively trust that this is obedience to the Word. Simply put, serving others in the fear of the Lord is part and parcel with being a disciple of Christ. But serving one another in church and community does something unique in the life of a local church: it actually creates opportunities for us to obey the Great Commandment and to fulfill the Great Commission together.
One of the ways we do this is by serving our community every other month in what we call Mercy For Memphis.
