How Do I Become A Member?

If you are moving into our area from another church of Christ and have been baptized for the remission of your sins, then your ARE a member of the Lord’s church; all you need to do is let us know of your desire to labor with us here at Southside. At the conclusion of each worship service, we offer an invitation time for making needs known. You may announce your desire to identify with this congregation at that time, or you may simply inform one of the elders or ministers of your wish.  Once you have taken this step to work with the congregation here at Southside, we ask that you complete the involvement form (you should be given a copy by one of the elders) or if you prefer, the form can be picked up at the church office or after any service.
If you are new to the churches of Christ we would love to meet with you to learn more about you and your background in Christ. By searching the Bible we can discover with you where you are in God’s plan of salvation and what will be necessary for you to be added to His church. Only God can add people to the Lord’s church.
At Southside, we are open and accepting, and we welcome all newcomers to our family. However, we expect everyone who becomes a part of the Lord’s family to grow and mature to reflect Christ and to learn holy behavior before God. Put simply, you are welcome to come as you are, but you are encouraged to not stay that way.
