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.

Mary Hill Davis Offering

During September, Southland will collect the Mary Hill Davis Offering for Texas Missions.  Our church's goal is $7,000.

Every Texas Baptist has a role to play in sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in our state. It doesn't matter your age, sex, ethnicity, or if you live in one of our huge cities or small rural towns. God can use everyone in his mission.

These words tell us four important things:

Thought for Thursday - August 28

While the response has hardly been viral, more church members than normal have responded to my last sermon by noting the challenge of applying James 3:9-10 to our political discourse. In those verses, James diagnoses one of our greatest inconsistencies as Christians.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

As several church members have admitted, nowhere is this inconsistency of speech more apparent than in our political discourse. One of our problems is that we fail to remember that our politicians are actual people. Most of us don’t personally know our politicians so verbally attacking them feels more like attacking an idea than a person.

Marriage Seminar - September 7

First Presbyterian Church of San Angelo is offering the Grace Filled Marriage seminar on Sunday, September 7 from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Dr. Tim Kimmel will lead the seminar.

Dr. Kimmel is the founder and president of Family Matters, a non-profit ministry whose goal is to see families transformed by God’s grace into instruments of restoration and reformation by equipping families for every age and stage of life. Tim Kimmel is one of the country’s top advocates speaking for the family today. He is the author of the best-selling Little House on the Freeway and the award-winning Grace Based Parenting. Grace-Filled Marriage explores the daily reality of a life lived out with a commitment to treating one’s spouse the way God treats us—with grace.

Children of the Day Bible Study by Beth Moore

Is family life a challenge? Is work driving you crazy? Do you know God has a purpose for your life, but can't figure out what it is? Know that your circumstances are not coincidental. And God's timing is impeccable. Join Beth Moore on the Thessalonian shores as she walks you through the truth of each verse of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. In this study, you'll face crises, afflictions, relationships, doubts, concerns, and fears. Find encouragement for living the Christian life now and hope for when Christ returns.

Thought for Thursday - August 7

This has been an amazing summer in the life of Southland Baptist Church. More ministry has happened in these short months that I can name in this e-mail: VBS, Youth Camp, Youth Mission trips, Summer Feeding Program, Bible Studies, Sunday School Mission projects, and so much more.

In the mist of all that activity the church set the audacious goal of paying off the note by the end of the summer. I’ll admit that I had moments of doubt that we could actually accomplish that goal. I am thrilled to report that as of this morning, the amount left on the church’s note is only $15,914.41!
