has a rich heritage from which to build on. In 1948, with
direction from God, William Beall and his wife Nannie left
Fort Worth, Texas and came to Denison, and established
Southside Baptist Church. The church grew very quickly and
occupied four different buildings at the corner of Mirick and
Owing Street. Rev. Beall left Denison in 1953 to Pastor in
Sulphur Springs, Texas at the Central Baptist Church.
Rev. Wayne Imboden came
as Pastor in July of 1953. The Church moved to its present
location 1131 South Scullin on July 29th, 1962.
Rev. Imboden, and
his wife Lillie Mae, served the Lord faithfully until Bro.
Imboden's death December 31, 1985; thus fulfilling 32
of ministry at Southside Baptist Church.
Taylor came as Pastor on March 17, 1986. He and Kathy have
been at Southside over 29 years. Under his ministry the Church
has totally remodeled and added on to its present facility,
and built a gym/fellowship hall. It has also expanded its
property to owning the whole block. Southside Baptist Church
is now in the process of relocation, to a new building &
facilities, after being at its present address, 1131 S.
Scullin Ave. since 1962.
Southside Baptist Church is a church with a vision. A vision
for reaching this city, and world for Christ. The Church
supports over 100 missionary families, 2 Bible Colleges, Texoma
Baptist Youth Camp, and many Home Mission Projects.
As we have moved into our new worship facility at 3500 South
Park Avenue on April 3rd, 2011, we look forward to serving our
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, until He comes again for us. Our
desire is to see more lost people come to know Jesus as their
personal Savior and serve Him faithfully, telling the world
that there is hope and peace in knowing Jesus!!
