Shirley Hills Baptist Church

Denomination - Southern Baptist 

Weekly Attendance - 500 +

Location - Warner Robins, Georgia  

Position - Director of Worship & Creative Arts

Our Vision:

Love God, grow in him, and send out Christ Followers! 

We believe there are 8 hills to die on:

  1. Biblical Truth – everything we do is rooted in the Bible because we believe the Bible is God’s Word. We don’t assume everyone believes that. So, we point everyone back to His Word as our ‘Why.” We pray. We live boldly. We enjoy Him. Because He has made Himself known to us through His Word. 

  2. Authenticity – We simply do not have time to fake it. Whether that is on stage or in our D-Groups. We are real about our faults and failures. From praying, to teaching, to living life, we want to focus on being real in all we do.

  3. Relevant – the Bible was written thousands of years ago to a different culture. We want to make sure we communicate it clearly and in today's language.

  4. Community – this is life on life. This is where we learn together. We pray together. We serve together. We ask questions together. This is being the family to one another and with one another by caring and living life together.

  5. Give God our best – This means we challenge the status quo – we will risk ordinary for the extraordinary. From our music to our nursery we desire to give God the very best we have.

  6. Reproduce – we want to send out the message of God’s Word to the World. We believe healthy things reproduce. Where Christ followers reproduce Christ followers. Campuses reproduce campuses. Leaders reproduce leaders. Churches reproduce Churches.

  7. Life Giving – joy, unity, simplicity. Too many have left the church because it becomes everything but life giving.

  8. Transformation – we celebrate growth and life change that comes from walking with Jesus. It’s not about how far along you are in your walk with Jesus when you come. But we do expect anyone who has been around us to grow with us. This growth is Jesus transforming our life (life change).
