Since 1985, Southland has been in the St George area proclaiming the truth of God's word.
The church was started by and still led by our lead pastor Tim Miles. Tim and his wife Joy moved from Michigan to Utah to answer God's call to plant a church. Today Southland is still rooted in the preaching and teaching of the Bible. Everything at Southland goes back to Biblical truth and is founded on what God tells us in His word. The preaching at Southland is marked by systematic verse by verse exegesis of scripture. This bleeds over into the Sunday school classes as well as the youth and children's ministries.
The church believes in spreading the gospel through the preaching of the Bible and the discipleship of it's members. This is seen in the number of missionaries, pastors, and church planters that have grown up in Southland and gone out to serve God in other parts of Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, and beyond.
Southland is also one of the founding churches of Cedar Mountain Retreat (CMR). CMR sits on 20 acres at nearly 9,000 feet of elevation in the mountains above Cedar City Utah. The camp has grown over the years from rustic tent camping with no running water to multiple cabins for both boys and girls and running water including a full kitchen, bathrooms, and showers. There is a climbing wall, 9 hole disc golf course, volleyball courts, and hiking trails. There are 3 weeks of camps for young people and then a short 3 day camp open to the whole family.
The mission of Southland Bible Church is to glorify God by experiencing the grace and truth of Christ in ways that transform our lives, our families, and our world. We experience this grace and truth through the study of the Bible, discipleship, and fellowship.
