We Are South Lakes
We are a church in southwest OKC that follows Jesus Christ as Lord, and joins God in the work He is doing today. We do this by being radically devoted to God, relentlessly committed to true community, and remarkably passionate for the lost.
We are committed to being and making disciples. Disciples are people who are sold out for Jesus and have decided that the most important thing in their lives is to follow Him completely.
We are also committed to partnering with local churches for the purpose of reaching a lost world. Simply put, we exist to make disciples of Jesus who are remarkably passionate for the lost.
Our Essential Beliefs
Bible - The bible is the inspired word of God and is the final authority in life and doctrine. 2 Timothy 3:16
Trinity - There is one God eternally existing in three co-equal persons namely the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Romans 8, Ephesians 1:13-14
Mankind - People are made in the Spiritual image of God to be like Him in character, people are the supreme object of God's creation. All of mankind is marred by an attitude of disobedience towards God called sin. This attitude separates people from God. Genesis 1:27, Isaiah 53:6, Romans 3:23
Salvation - Salvation is a free gift of God. The death of Christ on the cross is the only sufficient payment for our sins. All have sinned, but all can be saved. This salvation is available for any who put their trust in Christ as Savior and follow Him as Lord. Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, John 3:16
Baptism - Those trusting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized. Romans 10:9, Acts 2:38
Church - The church is the body of Christ on Earth empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue the task of reaching the lost and discipling the saved, helping them become fully devoted followers of Christ. Ephesians 4:1-16
