Transformed . . . Nurtured . . . Sent

These three words do a great job of describing the people of Southland Baptist Church. We're in the process of being TRANSFORMED by God's grace, NURTURED in Christ's love, and SENT in the Spirit's power to join God in his redeeming work around the world. Whether that means we are sent to the other side of the globe or across the street, we believe that we are a people on a mission. This mission originates in the very heart of God. For God sent his own Son, Jesus Christ, into the world that we might truly live. He has sent his Spirit into the world to empower others to share the good news of Jesus with all they meet.

We're glad that you've stopped by our website. We hope you'll take a look around and get a better feel for who we are and what God is doing in and through us. But most of all, we pray that you'll feel sent our way . . . For we invite you to join us on the journey.

I was reminded of this recently during a conversation with a group of preachers. We were talking about all the different ways we preach the parable of the Good Samaritan. Usually, when we preach that passage, we preach it from the perspective of those who either give

Pray for Rain and San Angelo - April 12

On Saturday April 12th, you are invited to join Christians of all denominations as we gather together to pray for rain and for our community.  We will be meeting at 2:45 around the block of historic Concho Street in downtown San Angelo. At the ringing of the church bells (3:00), we will join hands and circle the block. Event coordinators will be stationed around the block along Concho Street, up Chadbourne, around Twohig (across from the Cactus), and back down Oakes to Concho. Come join a Living Prayer Chain as we pray for rain and our community.

If you are unable to attend, please set your alarm/phone and pause to pray with us where ever you are.
