“Showing Christ’s love to Southern Indiana – Sharing Christ’s love with Southern Indiana”

Mission Mexico

Partnering with the First Baptist Church in Landa de Matamoros, Queretaro, Mexico.


Welcome to First Southern Baptist Church, a place of worship and service where everyone is welcome.

Planted in the Clarksville community in 1948, we’ve grown, moved, and matured, all while staying rooted in and focused on the Southern Indiana community and our local and world-wide mission of sharing and living out the gospel. From Clarksville, we reach out to the world through our involvement with many missionary endeavors in the U.S. and overseas.

We intend to be a community of growing and maturing disciples, where God is worshipped and glorified. We invite you to come join us. There is always room for one more.

A word from our Senior Pastor, Bro. Russ Lievers:

Brother Russ

Thank you for visiting our web site! I hope you find it helpful. The best way to learn about our church is to come and see us and experience First Southern first hand. Karen and I moved our family to Southern Indiana in 1997 for me to become the pastor of First Southern Baptist Church. It wasn’t long before we felt right at home in the midst of the love and acceptance we found in this caring congregation and friendly, busy community.
