To glorify God by making joyful, obedient, and passionate disciples of Jesus Christ!
Worship is our highest priority of interaction with God. Psalm 29:2 reads, “Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; worship the Lord…” We encourage both personal worship of God as well as worship as a body of followers of Christ. Our corporate worship involves singing hymns and praise choruses in adoration of God, prayer, highlights of God’s work around the world, and the practical teaching of God’s Word verse by verse.
The Book of Proverbs speaks of a “friend who sticks closer than a brother”. Jesus said, “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” Our desire is that all who attend South Holly Baptist will be drawn together (connected) to one another through love and friendship. We have classes and fellowship groups that seek to enhance the development of closer bonds with one another.
New believers in Christ are compared to newborn babies who need a diet of milk. But just as aging changes the diet of a newborn baby, so also new Christians should be growing in their knowledge of God and His Word. Thus, we encourage folks to participate in one-on-one discipleship, small group studies, Sunday School classes, worship services, and any other means by which to assimilate truth and wisdom by which to live and act more like our Savior desires.
The final recorded words of Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel include, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them…and teaching them all that I have commanded you…” As Christians, we don’t want to merely retain for ourselves the joy and blessing of salvation through Jesus. Rather, we want everyone to hear the message of salvation so that perhaps they, too, will embrace Him as Savior and Lord. Thus, we actively seek to reach out to those who have yet to hear of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
South Holly Baptist Church stands in the tradition of historic evangelical beliefs. We've outlined the five distinctive theological convictions that serve as foundations for who we are as a church and how we seek to carry out our mission and vision.
Loving God. Loving People.
Pastor Sam and his wife, Darlene, have been married for 41 years and have 4 grown children and 9 grandchildren. As a missionary pastor, the Farlows have served in planting 3 new churches and restoring 3 churches back to self-supporting status. Having pastored in 4 states prior to coming to CO, they are enjoying Colorado and Coloradans immensely!
Dale Payne is an associate pastor and elder at South Holly. Dale and his wife, Martha, served as missionaries in Brazil for ___ years before retiring here in Colorado. They have 2 married sons in the states and a single daughter who still serves faithfully in Brazil. Although lingering health issues have slowed their pace a bit, they love missions and keep in close contact with missionaries around the world. Their prayer ministry is a great asset for the ministry of our church.
