Brief Description of the Church

Southview Bible Church started as Southview Baptist Church in 1979. We are now an independent Bible Church. Pastor Dwight Oswald became the first full time pastor of the church in 1984. The hallmark of the church has been expository verse by verse teaching. We are unashamedly dispensational in our doctrine.
