New Believer


After you receive Christ, now it's time to get to know Him. Here are a few next steps.


- Attend church regularly. Worshiping and learning in community with others is one of the best ways to re-align yourself with God.

- Read your Bible. God’s Word is meant to be woven throughout our lives, giving us new wisdom with each season we experience. It’s the story of His love for us since the beginning of time—something best enjoyed daily. Try youversion.com Reading Plan download.

- Pray. 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 love to us.

- Get Baptized. Baptism is our way of telling the world about our relationship with Christ. Jesus did it, and it’s an important way we can follow His footsteps.

- 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. 

- Bring your family. Following Jesus is a journey that becomes even more meaningful when shared. A great way to lay the groundwork is getting your kids involved in the ministry that’s designed just for them.

4 THINGS TO GET YOU GOING

  • READ YOUR BIBLE

    God’s Word is meant to be woven throughout our lives, giving us new wisdom with each season we experience. It’s the story of His love for us since the beginning of time, something best enjoyed daily.

    Your word is a lamp to my feet
    And a light to my path.
    Psalm 119:105

  • PRAY

    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 love to us.

    In my distress I called upon the Lord,
    And cried out to my God;
    He heard my voice from His temple,
    And my cry came before Him, even to His ears.
    Psalm 18:6

  • 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. We give a tithe (10%) back to the Lord.

    For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
    John 3:16

  • SERVE

    Get connected with one of the many opportunities inside and outside of the church. We encourage people to find what they are passionate about, gifted for, and use those gifts to serve humanity.

    Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
    2 Timothy 1:6

  • REST

    Don’t forget to slow down and take a Sabbath! With the busyness of life, we simply forget to stop and rest. Take some time to get alone with God, and wait on Him.


    Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

    Genesis 2:3


  • SILENCE

    Sometimes it’s hard to hear when we are surrounded by so much noise. It’s in the silence that we pause and listen to what God is saying.

    And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
    1 Kings 19:12

  • SOLITUDE

    Jesus was constantly getting away to spend some time with just Him and the Father.

    Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.
    Mark 1:35

  • WAIT

    Waiting is not simply doing nothing, but it’s a time when we find ourselves getting stronger, more prepared, and focused on the task ahead of us.

    But those who wait on the Lord
    Shall renew their strength;
    They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
    They shall run and not be weary,
    They shall walk and not faint.
    Isaiah 40:31

  • ENDURE

    We want to be followers of Christ that run the race to the finish. To follow Christ doesn’t mean that we are exempt from “bad things happening” but now we have Christ on our side and with Him all things are possible.


    But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

    Matthew 24:13


1 THING THAT IT’S ALL ABOUT

LOVE

If we have not love we are nothing.


We love Him because He first loved us.
1 John 4:19
