YOU ARE WELCOME HERE
When you come to First Southern, expect to be welcomed into a friendly, positive environment by people who are genuinely excited to see you.
We have one service at 10:30a that lasts around an hour and a half and is filled with energetic music, prayer and a scripture based message.
Connection Groups begin at 9:15a and help you build friendships. And if you have kids, they will love it here! Age-specific lessons involve your child in learning more about Jesus. The First Southern team is committed to providing a clean environment that is fun and safe for your children.

If you’re a first-time visitor, turn on your hazards once you get here and we'll have a parking lot attendant help guide you to your VIP spot!
We want you to feel comfortable. Whether that means jeans and a t-shirt, business casual or suit and tie, as long as you are actually wearing clothes, you will fit right in.
You can breathe easy, the answer is no. Your level of engagement is completely up to you. But if and when you're ready to take a step, we'll be ready! There's a Connect Card that you can choose to fill out in case you have questions, need prayer, or are interested in getting baptized, or if you'd like to be in the know for church-wide events and activities.
Motorcycle enthusiast, avid outdoorsman, and energetic father of 10, Pastor Keith has big dreams.
As a young man, Keith began ministry at FSBC before joining the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, where he served as Family and Men’s Ministry Specialist for 10 years. Throughout the years, God increased his vision for developing spiritually strong men and families who impact their communities for the Kingdom of God. Keith led the Oklahoma Faith Riders motorcycle ministry, engaging hundreds of riders from churches across Oklahoma. Through his leadership of the Rewired Men’s Conference, men across the United States have discovered new ways to live out their faith.
In May 2018, Keith became the Director of Falls Creek and Cross Timbers Baptist Camps. In October 2018, Keith responded to God’s call to return to FSBC, leading with genuine relationships, audacious faith, and a passionate desire to help people come into and maintain a relationship with Jesus. “Has there ever been a more important time to give people a credible offer of the Gospel and a place to grow and be loved in our city? Father, may it be so!”
Keith is the author of Advanced Men’s Ministry Training: A Manual for Building Your Men’s Ministry, used by churches throughout the United States. He has contributed to various articles related to men, marriage, and family for Lifeway Christian Sources and serves on various boards and advisory committees related to men’s ministry. Keith has experience as a small business owner and served in the United States Army Reserves for 21 years. He has been married to his precious wife, Jeanette, for 40 years and is the proud father of 10 children and 13 grandchildren.
