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.

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.

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.
