WE ARE COMMON PEOPLE
We’re just a bunch of common people who follow Jesus and live uncommon lives throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. You might say we want to see our state become the “Uncommonwealth”. We know that can happen as we “unleash a revolution of love” in every community we’re in. We keep ourselves accountable to live uncommon lives by focusing on the four Expressions, Challenges and Statements below.
WE RELENTLESSLY PURSUE A TRANSFORMING RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
Time in God’s Word is critical to becoming like Jesus. That’s why we prioritize it here at Southland.
To focus on this priority, we’ve challenged 100% of Jesus followers at Southland to read their Bible daily.
WE SACRIFICIALLY SERVE OUR FAMILIES.
God created us for family. It’s in these relationships that He shapes our character, provides for our needs, and prepares us for the future.
To focus on this priority, we’ve challenged 100% of spouses and families at Southland to pray together daily.
WE RADICALLY INVEST IN THE NEXT GENERATION.
The Church is the hope of the world and we believe that the future of the Church is going to be incredible. That’s why we make dynamic Children’s and Student Ministries a priority at Southland.
To focus on this priority, we’ve challenged 100% of Southland students to learn to follow Jesus daily.
WE GENEROUSLY EXTEND HOPE TO THE POOR.
People can be relationally poor, emotionally poor, financially poor, and spiritually poor. God has given so much to us that we can’t help but give to others. Our goal is to see people come to Jesus as a result of our actions.
To focus on this priority, we’ve challenged 100% of Jesus followers at Southland to baptize at least one friend each year.
