Christ teaches his disciples in Matthew 28:19a “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.

In Acts 1:8, Christ says, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem & in all Judea and Samaria, & to the end of the earth.”

In obedience to Christ’s teaching and in coordination with other local ministries, SouthLake steps out in faith and in full dependence on the Holy Spirit, and demonstrates Christ’s goodness and grace to our community.

Our “Jerusalem” is Lake Norman and Charlotte, and we pray the hope of Christ will be cultivated in every person we touch.
