At Southside, we believe that only Jesus can meet your deep desire to fellowship with your Creator. He is the only One through Whom your needs can be met.

Our Services

What are services like?
We call our worship service a "blended" service, a mixture of classical hymns and modern praise songs sung by our choir and played by a full band. When you come to Southside you can expect: A worship experience that is contemporary, upbeat, and hopefully, draws you into the presence of God. A message from our pastor that is Biblical, practical, and relevant to the world we live in today. A children’s experience that will have your kids begging to come back next week. A student experience that will lead them into a deeper walk with God and doing so with other students facing the same challenges. A place where adults – married, single, young, and old – can come and study the word of God.

What is the community like?
Southside truly is a family of faith. The comment that we here more often than any other is that our church feels like a great big family.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Southside is a great place to come to have your questions answered. We are a "Come as you are" church and all are welcome.

Jeff Robinson

Jeff Robinson

Jeff Robinson is the Senior Pastor at Southside. He is the lead preacher/teacher and seeks to base his messages on a responsible interpretation of the Bible while relating Scriptures to everyday experiences in order to encourage faithfulness with regards to Christian beliefs and practices. He also provides counseling and upon request, conducts baby dedications, marriages, and funeral services. Jeff is married to Melissa Robinson, our Worship Leader, and has three children, Corrinn, Christa and Davis. He has had the privilege of serving the congregation of Southside Baptist Church in Lufkin,TX since 1994. Upon assuming this role at the struggling congregation, God began a miraculous resurrection of the church and it soon became a place of unity among the saints and refuge for the spiritually wounded. During his tenure here, conversions, congregational ministries, community outreach endeavors, and world mission activities have grown exponentially. Church attendance has increased eight fold under his leadership. His love for Jesus Christ and the people of God have led him to speak and preach in many churches, and conferences around the area. Before pastoring Southside, Jeff served as a youth minister and education minister in churches in Louisiana and Texas.
