The journey begins when a person turns from their sins and accepts Jesus as Lord and Savior, however, our work as a church has just begun. While each step in a person’s spiritual journey takes place within the heart, the  OUTWARD SIGNS are easy to identify.

Accept Christ: Baptism
Baptism is a picture of what Jesus did for us which symbolizes His death, burial, and resurrection.
 
“We were, therefore, buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.” -Romans 6:4-5
 
“…having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.” -Colossians 2:12
 

Worship Together: Attend Services

Each week followers of Christ come together to love God and love one another.
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” -Hebrews 10:24-25

Membership: Giving & Ministry

Membership means each of us commit to the vision of the church by giving and serving .

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” -1 Peter 4:10

Connected & Growing: Small Groups

Small Groups create a rich environment for building relationships with others, studying God’s Word, and experiencing life together as disciples.

The early church met,
“…publicly and house to house.” -Acts 20:20
