There is no such thing as THE Southern Baptist Church. All SBC churches are independent churches. The are nearly all controlled by the local members. The real question is your personal relationship with God and his son Jesus Christ. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved and have an eternal relationship with God. Yes, the above answer is true, each SBC church isautonomous, however, the Southern Baptist Convention does uphold a set of beliefs as supported by The Bible. The largest differences are that Southern Baptist churches do not believe in speaking in tongues, the loss of one's salvation, and women serving as pastors. All of the beliefs upheld by the Southern Baptist Convention are laid out clearly on its website, as well as listed with Bible references which support the stands taken by the SBC. I agree with the previous answerer that ultimately your personal relationship with Jesus Christ is what counts. Just know that if you are saved and you are genuine in this decision, you can never lose your salvation. EVER (See Romans 8:38-39).

What is the difference between Baptist and southern Baptist churches?

The only difference is the larger group that they are affiliated with. A Southern Baptist Church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, which is one of many Baptist Groups. There are differences between baptist churches (even within the convention) because one of the most important Baptist beliefs is that of soul competancy, or the ability of each individual and church to interpret the bible themselves, and the freedom to worship according to their own conscience. This means that every baptist church might be a little bit different than the others. Southern Baptist churches are generally pretty conservative, however, there are exceptions.
