Joining a church is a very important decision.
When anyone enters into relationship with God by faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ they are committing themselves to two things. The first is to journey with God for the rest of their lives and to love Him fully. The second is to journey with His other children in the community of the local church.Therefore, if you are looking for a place to walk with Jesus as a part of a larger community of faith, then we welcome you to join Southside Baptist church. Your desire for membership can be expressed by coming forward at the conclusion of any service. Someone will meet you at the altar to encourage you as you make this very important decision. You can join Southside Baptist Church through any of the following ways:
By Profession of Faith: If you profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we invite you to follow Him in New Testament baptism by immersion.
By Letter: As a Baptist whose church membership is elsewhere, should God lead you here, we will be happy to welcome you into our church family.
By Baptism: If you have previously confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior but have not followed through with New Testament baptism by immersion, we invite you to join by baptism. This gives testimony of your salvation and your obedience to Christ’s example.
By Statement: If your church membership records are unavailable or if you are presently a member of another church of like faith and order, you can join on statement that you have confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior and have been baptized with New Testament baptism by immersion.
