We believe that there are no perfect people; we all have a next step to take. Whether you’re new to Church or Christianity, or you’ve been doing this for a long time, there’s a next step for you to take.
- Attend an event/service
- Believe in Jesus
- Grow (Be Discipled)
- Surrender to God
- Disciple Others
1. Attend an event/service.
This is the easiest step because all it requires is that you show up. You don’t even have to pay attention–we’d like it if you did, but it’s not mandatory. You can attend Wednesday Nights, Summer Camp, Winter Retreat, our Fall Event (Lock-Out), or our Sunday Morning gatherings.
We want you to connect so that you can learn who we are and how you fit-in with us. We’re a doors-wide open kind of group, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’ve been. We’ve all got a story, and we are excited to hear yours.
3. Believe in Jesus.
After a while of hanging out and connecting with us, you’ll begin to notice that we are passionate about Jesus. We believe that He is who He says He is, and He does/did what He says He does/did. And we believe it to the point that it changes how we live our lives every day.
4. Grow (Be Discipled).
We believe that healthy things grow. We don’t want you to stay the same or stay who you used to be. We want to see you go higher with God and continue to Grow into the man/woman of God that you are.
5. Surrender to God
There’s a lot of growth that happens between Believing and Surrendering. You can believe that Jesus died for your sins without it effecting your life; but there comes a time when it’s time to put your money where your mouth is–time to invest some skin in the game. That’s where surrender begins to happen. We believe to live the abundant life that Jesus promise, it costs surrender of time, talent, and treasure.
We believe that saved people serve people. When you’ve been saved from addiction, saved from sickness, saved from a meaningless life, you can’t help but want to help others. Loving others and helping others looks like serving others.
7. Disciple Others
Once you’ve been discipled, you can begin to disciple others. Often times, the best way to fully learn something is by teaching it to someone else. As you learn and grow, we want you to help others learn and grow. We encourage our high-schoolers to look back and find someone younger then themselves to begin discipling and mentoring.
