Our Story


Liberty Southern Baptist Church was originally a mission project of First Baptist Church. It was located in the Southern Heights addition and went by that name. The year was 1940. While at that location, we constructed a building that now houses the Indian Baptist Church.  Our congregation moved to the present location, and on August 4, 1954, dedicated the new building as New Hope Baptist Church. In 1976, we became Liberty Southern Baptist Church. 

As our church has grown, so has our love for God and the people of Enid.  Our ministries include discipleship training, nursing home outreach, and a food pantry. We encourage our members to be the hands and feet of Jesus at work, in their neighborhoods, as a part of other Enid community organizations, and through partnerships with world missions organizations.

Present the Gospel to the lost, equip the Saints, and live according to Holy Scripture.


Glorifying God in all that we do through love, prayer, worship, fellowship, and community outreach, according to God's word, through an ever-developing relationship with Jesus Christ, in a growing church family. 


As we walk with Christ, we are committed to teaching, preaching and sharing the truth, the inspired word of God.


"All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of      the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:     and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." Matthew 28:18-20 

Our Beliefs



We believe the Bible, consisting of 66 books, to be the inspired Word of God, without error, the revelation of His will for the salvation of all mankind, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.


We believe in one God existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God has always been and will always be the  one and only God. There were none before Him, and shall be none after him.


We believe that the Father created all things in heaven and on earth. He created human beings out of a love for us and desires a personal relationship with each of us.


We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross as the sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Furthermore, He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven.


We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict men, making them aware of their sin and the salvation available through Jesus. He regenerates, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer for godly living and service.


We believe that man was created in the image of God and sinless, but fell into sin and is therefore lost and subject to judgment. There is nothing man can do to save himself from this judgment, but he can accept the death of Jesus as punishment in place of his own eternal death by acknowledging God and accepting the free gift of salvation.


We believe that the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ provides the only way of justification and salvation for all who believe.      Any who attach additional works of man as a requirement for salvation are false in that they infer Jesus’ death is insufficient in and of itself to save and that human beings somehow have the capability to save themselves.


We believe that no sin is too big for God to forgive. Therefore, as Christians we should be open and eager to share the Gospel with everyone regardless of their sin or affliction. However, making Jesus Lord of our lives means striving towards holiness and turning from our sinful ways. Therefore, while being open to all sinners, Christians ought not accept, ignore, or promote any sin as permissible.
