NEXT STEPS

Salvation in Christ comes from your belief in Jesus as the one and only son of God. He died on the cross for your misdeeds, called sins. He rose from the grave three days later so that you may have everlasting life in heaven. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  John 3:16

Christian baptism, which is commanded by our Lord, is a sacrament signifying acceptance of the benefits of the atonement of Jesus Christ. It is an outward sign of their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior, and full purpose of obedience in holiness and righteousness. “Now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.” Acts 22:16

Connection to one another is one of Christ’s most powerful teachings. He personally met with twelve people regularly for prayer, fellowship and to share life. James, John and Peter would eventually become the three men with Jesus at his arrest. Paul further instructed us, in his letter to the Hebrews,  “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…” Hebrews 10:24-25

Service to others is the hallmark of Christian activity. We believe that service comes in two places within the church. First, care for those less fortunate. Second, make it possible for others to worship. Cooperative worship requires cooperative sacrifice. “God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10
