What do you offer for children?
I don't know much about the Bible. Will I feel uncomfortable?
Our prayer is that you will be warmly greeted and helped along in your journey to know God’s Word in such a way that is encouraging, loving, and life changing. We understand that you are taking a step out of your comfort zone to come to a Worship Service or small group Bible study. We make a conscious effort to welcome folks without putting them in the spotlight. That’s why we will do everything possible to help you understand what we are doing and why we do it. Our membership class, Connecting to Southside, is a great opportunity to get to know our church and mission without any obligation to become a member.
What does Southside believe about baptism?
We believe that those who have committed their lives to Jesus Christ need to follow His command and example in baptism. “Believer’s Baptism” refers to what takes place when a person who is old enough to make a conscious commitment to Christ does so and is baptized. We also observe immersion – under the water – in accordance with Biblical teaching.
How can someone join Southside Baptist Church?
