If you are using iOS 5 or later, make sure to instead navigate to:

 

Settings -> Notifications -> Messages -> Show Preview -> OFF

Open SETTINGS>NOTIFICATIONS>MESSAGES. Scroll down until you see “Show Preview” and slide the switch to off. This way it will still notify you when you get a new message, but the preview won’t be visible for the world to see.
