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.

Thought for Thursday - September 18

This Sunday Bobie Miller will be our special guest in worship. For the last 35 years, Bobby has served as the Music Minister at South Main Baptist Church in Pasedena, TX. South Main is Tim Lyle’s childhood church. Bobie, Tim, and the sanctuary choir and orchestra will lead us in a morning worship service filled to the brim with the songs of our faith.

Songs are such an important feature of our faith. Whether ancient hymns or modern choruses, the church’s music serves an important function in both worship and discipleship. While you can certainly have a worship service without singing, singing almost always makes a service better. Some emotions, some expressions of faith, simply can’t be expressed with the spoken word alone.

Medical Mission Opportunity - October 18

What is this? 
This is a one-day mission trip to Del Rio where Southland will join churches from the San Antonio Baptist Association. This association has a local chapter of the Christian Medical & Dental Association.

The CMDA Mission
"Motivating, equipping, and encouraging doctors and students in San Antonio to practice faith in Jesus Christ in their personal and professional lives."

Thought for Thursday - September 4

I have been a part of Christ’s church long enough to know that the church is not the building but the people who gather to worship in the building each Sunday and then proceed to go forth and live out their faith in the world the rest of the week. I also have been a part of Christ’s church long enough to know that spaces can be sacred nonetheless. A space becomes sacred the moment God chooses to show up. While we know that any space can become sacred, it should come as no surprise that for many people, church buildings occupy sacred space in their lives. After all, good church people show up each week expecting to discover God in church buildings.

Mary Hill Davis Offering

During September, Southland will collect the Mary Hill Davis Offering for Texas Missions.  This week we begin collecting the Mary Hill Davis Offering for Texas Missions. Our church's goal is to raise $7,000 this month for mission efforts state wide. These funds are used through the Baptist General Convention of Texas to communicate the Gospel to people around our state. Monies raised in this offering help plant new churches, train chaplains in the prison system, send BSM students on mission opportunities, provide rural and urban pastor training, facilitate oilfield worker evangelism, and much more. I hope you will pray about what God would have you give toward this offering.
