Welcome to Lytle South Baptist Church

About Us

“Lytle South”, as we refer to ourselves, is a family and community church. We feel we have a place for every age group, from the infant to the senior adult and everything in between. We have Sunday School and Worship Services each Sunday morning. For Sunday nights, we like to have our members meeting in homes for Special Focus Studies and Fellowship. On Wednesday evening, we have a Church Wide Meal and Bible Study for each age group. Included on Wednesday is Choir for children and adults. Regularly, we have some form of Church Wide Fellowship and Outreach for our members and our neighborhood.

Having had only one pastor, Rodney Watson or “Brother Rodney” as we like to call him, has given the church consistency most church families never receive. Located just east of Oldham Lane on Industrial Boulevard, we currently have approximately 250 members.

Our Beliefs

We are a member of the Abilene Baptist Association, the Baptist General Convention of Texas, and the Southern Baptist Convention of Texas. We adhere to the Baptist Faith and Message of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Our Worship

Our worship service is a blend of traditional hymnDSC_3041s and contemporary songs, which span the generations of our church family. Our prayer is that we can worship God in Spirit and in truth.

“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.” John 4:23

Our History:

Lytle South Baptist Church began when Temple Baptist Church, located at 1073 Sycamore, became a mission church of First Baptist Church and relocated to southeast Abilene. Lytle South prepared for their relocation by holding Vacation Bible School under a tent for 2 years and by meeting in home Bible Study groups before constructing a new building and holding their first service on December 11, 1988 with 74 members making the move. Rodney Watson began pastoring Temple Baptist on July 1, 1984 and continues as pastor of LSBC today.
