200welcome

Kingdom greetings! Welcome to the online home of Southside Christian Fellowship of McDonough, Georgia. We are a non-denominational, Christian ministry that embraces people from all walks of life who are seeking an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our ministry is located in the heart of Henry County which is one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. If you are new to the area, please accept this welcome as invitation to join us at one of our worship services. When you visit, you will probably hear Papa Herman greet you with SCF's motto: "In this place you are loved, accepted and received!"

These are not just words, but the cornerstone behind who we are in the lives of those in our SCF family. As followers of Christ, we sincerely embody that simple statement individually and corporately. Our congregation is diverse and representative of many different backgrounds, nationalities and experiences who have unified in their love and devotion to the belief and ministry of Jesus Christ. We would love to have you fellowship with us or join our growing family.

At Southside Christian Fellowship , we use the shofar during celebratory worship. We do not believe there is anything mystical or magical about the shofar. We simply are using it as an expression of worship; During the blowing of the shofar there can be very distinct sounds:

 

    * Tekiah - one long, straight blast

    * Shevarim - three medium, wailing sounds

    * Teruah - nine quick blasts in short succession

 

Tekiah is the sound of the King's coronation. And now, the shofar proclaims to ourselves and to the world: God is our King. It isn't enough that Christ is MY King alone. If ALL humanity doesn't recognize Christ as King, then there is something lacking in my own relationship with the Father. Part of my love for Jesus is to help guide all people to an appreciation of Him.

 

Shevarim - three medium, wailing blasts - is the sobbing heart, yearning to connect and to grow. Every Christian has the potential to change and be great. This can be accomplished much faster than you ever dreamed of. Don't let yourself be constrained by the past. You know you have enormous potential. At the moment the shofar is blown, we cry out to God from the depths of the soul. This is the moment when our souls stand before the Almighty in an open heaven.

 

Teruah - nine quick blasts in short succession - resembles an alarm clock, arousing us from our spiritual slumber. The shofar brings clarity, alertness, and focus to our call as Christians. God wants us to make an honest effort to maximize and utilize the gifts He gave us. You aren't expected to be anything you're not. But you can't hoodwink God, either.

 

The shofar was sounded:

    * As an instrument of proclamation, announcing the presence or coming of the Lord (Exodus 19:19)

    * To praise God (Psalm 98:6)

    * As an early warning siren (Numbers 10:9)

    * To assemble the people, to assemble the troops (Nehemiah 4:20)

    * To call God's people to worship Him (Isaiah 26:13)

    * At the swearing of an oath to God (II Chronicles 15:14)

    * In the midst of battle (Zechariah 9:14)

    * To announce the beginning of festivals (Leviticus 25:9-10)

At the return of Jesus, the Messiah. "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with a voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words." (I Thessalonians 4:16-18 NKJV)

Comp 63635003We believe scripture teaches us to seek after the gift of prophecy.  Prophecy is a declaring of God’s word in the power and authority of the Holy Spirit.  It declares the heart and mind of God to believers.  All prophecy must be judged in accordance with the Word of God. We believe there are different levels of inspiration for prophetic utterance; however, none of these supercedes scripture.  The scriptures are our final authority.

The scripture teaches us about prophecy in at least two ways. There is the gift of prophecy 1 Cor 12:8 and there is the office of Prophet Eph 4:11.  The gift of prophecy is an immediate word from the Lord to the local assembly for direction, exhortation, rebuke or comfort.  The Holy Spirit can speak through any believer in this manner.

As a point of order, SCF does not allow individual rebuke or correction to be given in a public setting.  Rebukes or correction must be submitted to the eldership to be judged in accordance with scripture before being given.

Comp 96317686Jesus was anointed to preach the gospel of the kingdom to the poor.  Our desire is to reach those that are broken hearted, discouraged, and cast aside.  The banner that hangs over the front of our church reads,  “In this place you are loved, accepted and received”.  We must fulfill all that this banner says to those that walk into our sanctuary.

We as a body are called to feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty and clothe the naked.  In order to do this we must be prepared to move beyond self and begin to move to the point of self-sacrifice.  Our vision is to build a Hope center.

We believe Prayer is the primary way by which God's will is released in the earth. The Lord's model prayer teaches us to pray, "His will be done on earth even as it is in heaven" John Wesley said, "it appears God will do nothing unless men pray." This is a great mystery in God's design and order. When we as Christians accept this mystery as reality we are motivated to pray. The unselfish prayer of agreement with the Father's will, will produce miracles. James 5:15,16

 

Jesus emphasized the importance of prayer by identifying His house (place of habitation) with prayer. He quoted Isaiah saying, "it is written my house shall be called a house of prayer" Matt 21:13. Paul tells us God's will is that we pray without ceasing. 1Thessalonian 5:17 The effectiveness of a Christian's life is in direct proportion to their prayer life.

 

Proper prayer is our way of displaying humility and submission to the Father. Through prayer we express our total dependence on God. By prayer we ask God to fulfill His will in our life and to release His glory in the earth.

 

    * Intercession is the highest form of prayer. The intercessor voluntarily takes on the responsibility of praying the heart of the Father on behalf of individuals, churches, areas, or nations. The only motivation is God's will being done on earth as it is in heaven.

    * Prayers of Petition are requests made to God for specific needs. The model prayer teaches us to pray for our daily needs. Scripture further tells us God will meet our needs according to His riches in glory. Phil 4:19 The prerequisite to receiving is asking. James 4:2,3 " you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.

    * Prayers of Thanksgiving are expressions of our love and adoration to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Thanksgiving ushers in the manifest presence of God. We are to give thanks in everything. I Thessalonians 5:18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

    * Groanings and tongues are prayers offered up when we don't know how to pray or even what to pray. Paul taught us to pray in our known language and in tongues. The church encourages you to pray in tongues daily.

    * Prayers of Confession are cries of repentance and sorrow over our sin. It is a time to receive forgiveness, grace and mercy and be reassured of God's unconditional love. It is a time of cleansing
