Long Range Leadership

20/20 Vision

SGBC 20/20 Vision

The Long Range Planning Committee has worked diligently to produce a plan that is currently underway at SGBC. The plan includes using scripture, prayer, demographic research, focus group results, and the committees of the church to adhere to the 5 Foundational Truths of South Garland Baptist Church.


"I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD, "plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Then when you call on me and come and pray, I will hear you."

Jeremiah 29:11-12

The Focus Group was asked the following questions in order to help formulate the 20/20 Vision for SGBC:

Where do you see God at work in the church?
How is our church responding to needs/opportunities?
How might you and others serve or become involved?

The work of the Long Range Planning committee produced 5 Foundational Truths for South Garland Baptist Church. These truths are of primary importance in all aspects of SGBC life.

SGBC 20/20 5 Foundational Truths

Each committee considers all 5 Foundational Truths in accomplishing their work. Still, certain committees have a primary role in maintaining and achieving the 5 Foundational Truths.
