Welcome. You’re in the right place. This page will answer some of the basic questions you might have about our church. From here, you can also find out how to learn even more.
Where are you located?
As our church’s name suggests, Southwest Baptist Church is located on the southwest side of Oklahoma City. In fact, we have been located in the same neighborhood for nearly our entire 60-year history. While the church isn’t situated on a major intersection, it is easy to find, and, although it’s located in a southwest Oklahoma City neighborhood, many guests and members drive from all over the metro to enjoy the unique church experience that Southwest Baptist Church offers.
What religious group are you a part of?
Southwest Baptist Church is not affiliated with, or under the authority of, any denominational organization. Instead, the Bible is our sole and final authority for all of our decisions regarding belief and practice. In other words, we are a Baptist church that is independent in our authority and fundamental in our doctrine.
What are you all about?
The mission of Southwest Baptist Church is to honor God and help people by going across the street and around the world with the Gospel. Everything we do flows out of that mission. We seek to honor God by participating in meaningful, biblical worship services and engaging Bible classes. We seek to help people through our outreach ministries to our local community and mission efforts around the world.
What times do you meet for services and Bible classes?
We have 3 weekly services. The first is our Sunday morning service, which includes Bible classes for all ages that begin at 9:45 a.m. Our Sunday morning worship service begins at 10:45 a.m. Our Sunday evening service begins at 6:00 p.m., and our mid-week service is Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m.
What should I expect when I visit?
At Southwest Baptist Church, we are thrilled to have guests visiting in most every service. As soon as you walk through the doors, we believe you will find what so many people love about Southwest Baptist Church—a down-to-earth and genuinely friendly atmosphere. We will usually begin every service by making sure that each guest receives an information packet about our church. During the services themselves, you can expect to enjoy clear, God-honoring music and fervent, practical preaching. You might be wondering, “What should I wear when visiting Southwest Baptist Church?” While we never apologize for encouraging people to “dress their best” for church, you will find people from all walks of life and backgrounds who feel very much at home at Southwest Baptist Church.
