Southwest Christian Church is a product of the early 19th century Restoration Movement, which sought a return to the principles and practices of the 1st century Church described in the book of Acts. Prominent leaders like Barton W. Stone and Thomas and Alexander Campbell were interested in overcoming divisions in the Church by claiming to be “Christians only, but not the only Christians.” We consider ourselves a “non-denominational” Church, and as such, our leadership is formed from within our local congregation.

For 60 years, Southwest Christian Church operated in East Point, Georgia. In the last few years we have felt a strong call to move to Newnan, GA, and with the prayer and approval of the congregation, that process is well underway. We have purchased property on Hwy 29 near the Arbor Springs Plantation neighborhood and are currently building on that property. We recently moved all operations to rented space at 504 Center St. in Palmetto, GA and celebrated with a groundbreaking ceremony on our new property in May of 2017. While we transition we continue to pursue our primary mission to worship God, serve others, and build community.
