welcome to God's family!
You have made the most important decision of your life, choosing to follow Jesus. As a new believer, you can expect to have new attitudes and desires. You may need to replace some old habits and patterns with new activities that will help you to grow your new life in Christ. Growth takes time, but it begins—right now—where you are. If you haven't already, please take a moment to let us know about your decision. We'd like to provide you with some materials to help you grow in your relationship with Christ.
Here is what you need to know in order to get off on the right foot:
Read the Bible
The Bible will tell you everything you need to know in order to grow in your spiritual life. Because God speaks through His Word, you will get to know Him better and learn what pleases Him. As you obey His Word, you will grow strong and begin to see positive changes in your life. (Bible Reading Plans.)
Prayer is one of the greatest privileges we have as a child of God. Just think, the God of all creation wants to hear from you! You can call on the Lord any hour of the day or night and He will listen. It doesn't matter to God if your prayers are eloquent or flowery—it matters only that you pray with a pure and sincere heart.
Church plays a vital role in your spiritual growth. Fellowship with other Christians will keep you spiritually active and give you much needed encouragement and support. Church provides you with instruction from God's Word and gives you the training and opportunity to use your God-given gifts and abilities. At Christ's Church our missions is to develop fully devoted followers of Christ. We hope that you will join us.
Start Living for God
A sure sign of a changed heart is the desire to live for God. What does this mean? It means that you want to please God and to obey Him as best you know how. You will begin to filter your thoughts and actions through God's Word in order to become a reflection of Jesus Christ.
Share Your Faith
Good news is hard to keep to yourself! God wants you to share your new found faith with others. You don't have to wait until you're an expert in the Bible to witness to others. You can share what you know—your own story of what Jesus has done for you. Learn how to share your faith in a simple format.
Don't Get Sidetracked
Being a Christian is not always easy. There will be times when you'll feel pressured to back down or give in. When you became a child of God, you also became an enemy of the devil; and he will try to tempt you into disobeying God. It isn't a sin to be tempted—even Jesus experienced temptation (see Luke 4:1–3)—but giving in to the temptation is sin. Christians will experience times of testing and trials, but God promises to be with us and give us the strength we need to get through hard times.
Life Groups are the way we make a big church feel small. Groups meet in homes across the area and simply do life together; laughing and growing in all seasons of life. The Christian life is best lived with others. Therefore, we value and participate in Life Groups as a central function of our church. We’re not a church with small groups, but a church made up of small groups. Life Groups meet in homes throughout our community. It’s never too late to join a Life Group; in fact, we have saved you a seat. So join in, meet friends, discuss God’s truth and discover ways to serve our community with others.
If you haven't already, please take a moment to let us know about your decision. We'd like to send you a free Bible and some materials to help you grow in your relationship with Christ.
We would love if you would join us Sundays at 9am or 11am for Worship Service.
