Welcome to Southside Baptist Church’s website. We are a friendly church located in the heart of the South Norfolk area of Chesapeake, VA,  just off Interstate 464 at the intersection of Poindexter Ave. and Bainbridge Blvd. We have begun our 67th year of ministry in South Norfolk, Virginia.

Take a few minutes from your hectic day, enjoy some of the best in contemporary Christian music, and discover the Southside difference.

And if there is anything we can do to help you, or if you just need us to offer a prayer in your behalf,  please just drop us a note and we will add you to our daily petitions to the Lord.

Terry Riddle, Pastor

  • Easter Cantata to be presented April 21 during regular service at 11 a.m. (4/14/2019)

    This Easter, April 21, during our regular service, we will sing out these songs of redemption, thankfulness, and joyous worship that will remind us of the beautiful freedom that was given to us all through the Risen King, We are alive, Because He lives! Come and lift Him up! Hosanna!

    “Freedom…a gift that is both so precious and so magnificent. A gift that did not come without a price…but was paid and granted. By way of the sacrificial death on the cross and the overwhelming destruction of the grave, freedom was given to us all. Through Christ the King, we are forever free!”

    Come and celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord with us!
