Southern Hills is …
Driven by the Scriptures
This means that everything we do is governed by the Word of God. We desire for all of our ministries to flow out of a correct understanding of what God has revealed to us in the Scriptures. Our goal is to create an environment where the Word of God is taught and applied. We want the Scriptures to change the way we live.
Driven by Sovereignty
We believe that God is in control of all things. This means that nothing happens outside of His plan. Our understanding of God's sovereignty changes the way we look at our world. It changes the way we look at the people around us and it changes the way we look at the circumstances of our lives. We believe that God is using the events of our lives to change us into His kind of people and to give us opportunities to share His Gospel with others.
Driven by Sanctification
The Scriptures teach that being a Christian is something that should change every part of life. God's plan for each believer is that they would use their lives to grow in their relationship with Him. The Bible calls this lifelong journey sanctification. We believe that the church's primary goal should be to help people in their process of sanctification and we hope that Southern Hills will be a place that fulfills that goal.
