South River Baptist Church


You have stepped into the water called South River Baptist Church. South River is a community of believers brought together by the transforming grace of Jesus Christ. We are a conservative evangelical Southern Baptist church built on the inerrant truth of the Bible. South River shares the love of God by caring for one another and ministering to our neighborhoods and the nations desiring to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

There is nothing more soothing than the sound of flowing water. The River of Life Broadcast is the weekly broadcast of our morning worship service. What you will hear each week is the resonance flowing from the transformed lives of those who have been changed by the grace of Jesus Christ.

You will discover that we love Jesus wholeheartedly and yearn to hear God speak through His Word. Discover the stimulating effect of biblical truth that vibrates within our hearts.

Dr. Chris Thompson proclaims the truth directly from God’s Word as he preaches through books of the Bible. His faithful exposition provides a solid grounding in truth for life and godliness. Pastor Chris has served in Christian ministry for over 25 years as a pastor, professor, church planter, and counselor. He believes that God’s Word is essential for daily living and desires that every believer would seek to hear God speak from the Bible.

South River Baptist Church is becoming a powerful force where living water flows. Living water flowing from the throne of God, through the hearts of our membership, and into the lives of a world thirsting for satisfaction. Join us as we worship God and declare our devotion to Him and dependence upon Him.
