We exist to glorify God by making disciples who make a big deal of Jesus where we live, learn, work, and play.

Our mission involves going into the community to reach those around us and the world far from Jesus, as well as walking with those who already know Him. Through the ministries of Southbrook, the needs of broken people, homes, families, marriages, and those struggling with addiction have been met. People come and are equipped to live out the life-changing, life-transforming message of the Gospel.


God Exalting Worship

We were created to worship. Although many other things compete for our affection, we were always meant to worship God and God alone. From our Sunday gatherings to how we live every day of the week, we are a people committed to exalting God. Psalms 99:5; Psalms 138:2

Gospel-Centered Preaching

The Gospel is the message of all God has done for us through Jesus and His death and resurrection. This message will forever transform the lives of those who embrace it. Apart from Jesus, we are nothing; in Jesus, we have everything we need. Therefore, we will boldly and unapologetically preach this message. 1 Corinthians 1:23, 2:1-2; 2 Timothy 4:2

Authentic-Biblical Community

We were never meant to live life alone. Instead, we were created for community. Following Jesus requires that we develop relationships with other like-minded believers who will encourage us, challenge us, and speak into our lives as we grow to become more like Jesus. Acts 2:42-47; Hebrews 10:24-25

Extravagant Generosity

We serve an extravagantly generous God. When we least deserved it, God demonstrated His love for us by sending Jesus to die for us so we could be reconciled to our Creator. In response to such generosity, we are now called to be generous with our time, resources, and lives. John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 9:6-8; 1 Timothy 6:18

Sacrificial Service

Life is to be lived on mission for God inside and outside the church. While gathered, we are to use our gifts to serve one another. While scattered, we’re to be intentional where we live, learn, work, and play to serve others. Mark 10:45; Colossians 1:29; Philippians 2:5-8

Radical Witness

Because lost people matter to God, they should matter to us. The message of Jesus and all He accomplished on the cross is a message that needs to be told. Therefore, we will boldly proclaim Jesus whenever and wherever possible. Romans 5:8; 1 Peter 3:15-16; 2 Corinthians 5:14-15; John 3:16

Prayerful Dependence

Prayer draws us into greater intimacy with God through praise, thanksgiving, listening, and making our requests known. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we completely depend upon God for everything. We will be a people who prayerfully seek God for the things only He can do so that He gets the glory. Mark 1:35; Acts 2.42; Ephesians 3.20-21; 1 Thessalonians 5.17; Hebrews 11:1,6


These principles guide us as we seek to fulfill our mission. They describe the type of culture we want to create as a church and as people. We will know they are true of us when they are experienced more than heard.

Our best for God's glory

God has given us His very best through Jesus; therefore, we will do all things with excellence to glorify Him in everything we do. Colossians 3:23

We rest because God is in control

There is nothing too big for God to handle; therefore, we will choose to seek Him through prayer and trust Him no matter what. Philippians 4:6-7

Church health above church growth

Though a church may grow, not all growth is healthy; therefore, we will prioritize church health to ensure all we do is biblically grounded and Gospel-focused. Acts 2:42-47

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much

All of us are better than one of us; therefore, we will do ministry together as a team instead of alone in silos. 1 Corinthians 12:14-20 

Every interaction begins and ends with the Gospel

God has demonstrated so much grace towards us; we will quickly extend grace to one another in all circumstances and relationships. Ephesians 4:32

Giving ministry away by developing leaders

God's mission is bigger than any one person; therefore, we will equip, empower, and release leaders to own the mission with us. Ephesians 4:11-12

People are of utmost importance

People are more important than programs and processes; therefore, we will be intentional and fully present while with them. Philippians 2:3-4

Authentic relationships built on trust

Trust is everything in relationships; therefore, we will lead by being humble, approachable, and transparent. 1 Peter 5:5-6
