Our vision is simple. Since South Ridge Church began, we have been providing people with the opportunity to experience real life, real relationships, and real purpose through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. It has been an amazing journey as we joined God in what He was doing in Fairmont, WV and in several other places around the world.

We believe God is now leading us to fulfill our vision in a second city and also to double our impact around the world. Second City is a two-year initiative that will enable us to resource God's plan for us as a local church.


"Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand."

1 Chronicles 29:14



Double the Momentum



This investment not only represents our projected operating budget for the next two years, it represents the strengthening of our current ministries across the board. When we give to the Lord at South Ridge Church, we are investing in changed lives. Since moving into our current building several years ago, we have grown to an average weekly attendance of 780, we have witnessed 96 baptisms, and we have served our community each year through major outreach events like Big Kick Soccer Camp and Church Has Left the Building. And don't think God is finished with us yet! Our continued investment will allow us to strengthen and enhance everything that we do to help people grow in their relationships with God and others.


Double the Impact in 2 Cities



Second City is a bold step of faith to reach two cities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to establish another location of South Ridge Church in Harrison County to continue to reach those who are far from God. As a multisite church, we would be one church in more than one location. With this approach, we would no longer be limited to a couple of services in one location. We can take the church to where people live.

Approximately 50% of the people in Marion and Harrison counties identify as non-religious and even more are not connected to a gospel-centered, life-giving church. If we could effectively reach just 1% of these people in the next two years, our church would grow by 100%. We believe that this bold step of faith could be the catalyst necessary to change the spiritual landscape of our cities, counties, and ultimately have a positive impact on the state of West Virginia.


Double the Giving to Missions



The local church is God's plan for bringing the gospel to the ends of the earth. Over the next two years, we would like to increase our commitment to our global partners, prayerfully consider other global partnerships, and send more short-term and long-term missionaries from South Ridge Church.
