Our Vision:
Helping the Nations Find Hope in Jesus

Our Story

Our church was pioneered by Pastor Nathan and Dena Keller. And from the beginning, they envisioned nations and generations coming together to create a faith environment where God’s love is shared and His presence experienced. Through small groups, serving opportunities, and weekend worship gatherings (on campus and online) our story continues as we help the nations find hope in Jesus.

Our Pastors

Nate and Dena Keller and their son Logan moved to Texas in the summer of 2000 to plant SLFC. Under their leadership, the church has grown to become a family of more than 30 nations of all ages that call SLFC home. Today they continue to lead the church forward from this perspective: “It’s always a first time for someone at SLFC—let’s make it the best.”

What We Believe

About the Bible

We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.

About God

We believe in one personal God who exists eternally as: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, equal in power, authority and glory.

About Jesus

We believe Jesus Christ to be the virgin born Son of God who lived in flesh, died for the sins of the world, was buried, rose again bodily, and ascended to the Father.

About the Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit who regenerates and indwells every believer in Jesus, assures us of our salvation, guides us into all truth, glorifies Jesus and convinces of sin, righteousness and judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and empowers us for service.

About Mankind

We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

About Salvation

We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way for the forgiveness of sin. God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation cannot be earned, it is a gift from God.

About the Church

We believe in the universal church, the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith in the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him, obeying Him and bringing the gospel to the world.

About Eternity

We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to the earth and the establishing of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, and the final judgment. We believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
