Our Purpose

Purpose Statement

We, the Southside International Church, see ourselves as a praying, worshipping, multicultural family of believers who exist to glorify God by fulfilling the Great Commandment and the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We will do this by:

  • Winning people to Jesus Christ
  • Building them into mature believers
  • Equipping them to become effective workers
  • Multiplying leaders into ministries that will serve the church, community and the nations
  • Sending them to win, build, equip, multiply and send others

Who We Are

We are a multi-cultural congregation made up of at least 21 nationalities, speaking over 30 languages. We also incorporate a Mandarin speaking congregation. We belong to a group of more that fifty local churches in the Christian and Missionary Alliance of Australia (C&MA).

There has been a church meeting at this location for over l00 years. Two decades ago, the church changed from the United Protestant Church to the Sunnybank Alliance Church, of the Christian and Missionary Alliance of Australia. Then in March 1990 the Lord led people in the C&MA to begin the Antioch International Church. Early in 2004 Antioch became the Southside International Church to more accurately reflect our local identity. We emphasise Christ as Saviour, Sanctifier, and Healer and Coming King seeking to build God’s Kingdom, specifically among International people on the south side of Brisbane.

We have an active involvement in overseas missions as a normal part of the church life, as well a desire to see people find new life in Christ, locally and country wide
