The first steps are always the most exciting when you're going places. They mark the beginning of your journey. They show your courage to choose not to stay in the same place. They can be challenging, but they are also rewarding!
First step opportunities at Southland provide you with a chance to begin the forward motion in your faith journey. You'll learn about Southland's heart behind our ministry and receive the tools to help you in your faith. You'll also meet other people taking the same first steps – people you can enjoy the journey with.
Southland offers several opportunities for you to move forward and establish strong roots in your walk with God.

Baptism is a way of "going public" with your faith in Jesus Christ. It doesn't make someone a follower of Christ, but communicates what has taken place in your heart.
Jesus Commands all of his followers to be baptized (Matthew 28). We believe that every person who believes in Christ should be baptized.
At Southland, we baptize by immersion. Immersion signifies that we share in Christ's death and resurrection (under the water, dead to old life - out of the water, new life). It also symbolizes that we are washed clean, having our sings forgiven by Christ's death on the cross.
Baptisms are scheduled several times throughout the year. The next baptism will be on Sunday, January 29th at either the 9:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. service, whichever works best for you. We look forward to walking through this meaningful and significant experience with you.
