We believe in...
worship through action, not just music
equipping all believers, both old and new
making disciples, not members
fellowship within the church, and with The Church
sharing the story of Jesus, and how we fit into His story
loving our neighbor, no matter who they are
Southgate Baptist Church exists to bring glory to God. We will do this by encouraging and equipping people to become faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
Southgate Baptist Church began her journey on December 10, 1961 in Moore, OK. Thirteen charter members met in the Moore Community Building, with the meeting led by Brother Duren, and a message brought by Brother Duty. By May of the following year, their attendance had nearly tripled and they called their first pastor, Harold Hodges. This would be his first, and only, church to pastor for the next 35 years. We’ve since seen Doug Brewer join as Youth Pastor and later become Senior Pastor, Mike Mobly as Youth Pastor and then Director of Ministries, and Noah Hill as our current Youth Pastor.
Now three locations and four buildings later, Southgate focuses on reaching the heart of the community of Moore with the love of Jesus through outreach, ministry, and a place to call home.
