Southmont Baptist Church began in January, 1979, as a cooperative effort of the First Baptist Church of Denton, the Denton Baptist Association, and the Baptist General Convention of Texas. The church first met in a rented storefront near the current site of McMath Middle School.
Since that small beginning Southmont has grown to include more than 1,900 members meeting in a beautiful church plant that exceeds 65,000 square feet. We have facilities specifically constructed for preschoolers, children, youth, and adults. Our staff oversees ministries directed toward every age-group and a variety of needs.
Our Vision: To be a community of grace empowered by the Holy Spirit where people feel safe, valued, accepted and challenged to serve Christ, study His Word, show His Love and share the Gospel with all people.
Our Mission: To connect people to Christ, develop them for service and engage them in God’s mission.
