Next Steps

Following Christ is a series of steps. We want to help you become the person God made you to be. What’s your next step in the journey of following Jesus?

We’re right beside you with the tools to help. Here’s a few things that are important to your spiritual health:

– Get around other Christians. Worshiping and learning in a community of other believers is one of the best ways to re-align yourself with God. You’ll be encouraged knowing that you’re not on the journey alone. Sunday morning are a great way to do that. Come and see for yourself.

– Read your Bible. God’s Word is meant to be woven throughout our lives, giving us new wisdom and encouragement with each season we experience. It’s the story of Jesus rescuing us from a hopeless situation – the greatest story ever told! If you don’t have a Bible or need help choosing a version, see Pastor Ben.

Talk to God. We have the privilege of a direct connection to the Creator of the universe. Through prayer, God addresses our deepest hopes and fears, gives us direction, and expresses His master plan to us. Don’t make this harder than it is. Simply talk to God (and often) – like you’d talk to a close friend, and listen for Him to respond.

– Get Baptized. Baptism is our way of telling the world about our relationship with Christ. It’s symbolic of the new life you’ve started with Christ. Jesus did it, and it’s an important way we can follow His footsteps. If you want to be baptized in water, see Pastor Ben or someone on the Leadership Team.

– Give. When we give, it acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have, reflects our trust that He will continue to provide for us, and allows us to be a part of His work here on earth. It’s something we do with joy.

– Tell your family and friends. When you make the decision to follow Jesus, it’s a big deal. Following Jesus is a journey that becomes even more meaningful when it’s shared.
