One of the most powerful aspects of baptism at Southside is the video testimony shown right before each person’s baptism. The video allows each person to share how Christ has been working in their life. Prerecording allows them to do as many takes as necessary, while sharing the message they have thoughtfully and prayerfully prepared ahead of time. Many people ask, “Do I have to do the video?” The answer is yes, if a person wants to get baptized at Southside. Baptism is meant to be a public profession, and it is an incredible opportunity to share God’s message of redemption with thousands of people. We have witnessed time and time again the effect these videos have had on people’s lives.
Another important reason for the videos is that we as a congregation grow in our faith by watching these life-changing stories. It allows friends, family, and even those you don’t know to celebrate the amazing transformation God has worked in your life.
We want baptism to be a meaningful and enjoyable experience, and we look forward to walking through it with you!
