How to become a Member

By Profession of Faith and Baptism

    If you will receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord and follow Him in baptism by immersion, we welcome you into our fellowship.

By Letter

    As a Baptist whose church membership is elsewhere, we will be pleased to welcome you into our church family should God direct you here. We will happily take care of appropriate details by transferring your membership.

By Baptism From Another Denomination

    If you know in your heart that you are saved and want to become a member of South Side Baptist Church, we invite you to join by baptism. This gives testimony of your salvation and your obedience to His direction.

By Statement

    In the event church membership records are not available for a transfer of membership, or if you were once a Baptist church member, but are presently a member of another denomination we will accept you upon your statement of these conditions.

    You may express your desire to fulfill any of the above by presenting yourself during the invitation at the close of each worship service. Of course, any decision assumes your commitment of being faithful in prayer and participation in our Lord's work here at South Side Baptist Church of Fort Smith, Arkansas.
