Grow

THE PATH

Beginning a relationship with Christ can seem overwhelming and knowing what steps to take can be uncertain. That’s why we offer the Path as a way to help you know the right steps to take in order to grow in a personal relationship with Christ and to experience His abundant life.
 

SALVATION

Salvation is more than a ticket to heaven, an escape from hell, or a church membership. Salvation is about a person; Jesus. No one hates Jesus and yet so many fail to see the real reason for His coming. Sin separated us all from our Father God and out of His great love, He sent Jesus, His only son to die for us. Jesus became a man to identify with our weakness and sin, to pay sin’s price –death, and to be raised to life by the Father, defeating death, so that we too could share in eternal life. Salvation is about life, abundant life “in Christ.” Salvation is not the end of the story; it’s the beginning. Salvation includes being healed, delivered, set free, and made whole. It is an event followed by a process. The event, is like the formal adoption of an orphan. The process is like an orphan learning to live as a child of a King. It takes spending time with the King to learn His ways. As we learn about who God is, who He says we are, and His promises over us, we grow in what is called grace: the favor, love and power that God pours out on our lives.
 

BAPTISM

Baptism does not save us. We see it as a bold, unapologetic proclamation to the world that we are Christ’s and He is ours. Scripture says that we are to be baptized or immersed in name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  As such, we believe we are adopted by Father God as children of God and have the promises of God as revealed in the names of God. We believe that in baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. We also believe that just as the word means to dip or immerse, that we are immersed in or filled with the Holy Spirit. Finally, we believe that we are baptized into the family of God, the church. It is in this environment that new believers thrive.

We fully immerse, all that are able, into water at baptism. We do not require special clothing. We just ask you to bring a change of clothes and a towel.

 

JOIN A GROUP

Groups study the word, discuss the messages in more detail, team up for community work, pray for each other, encourage each other, help each other out, and just hang out. Most everything we do happens through groups. Everyone is encouraged to try various groups until you find the one that just clicks. Once you do, you’ll have friends that feel more like family. Our people like to take action. They enjoy praying for and ministering to people, serving one another and serving the community. We also want to keep life simple, so life groups are at the heart of our movement. We have various groups that meet at different times and different days of the week. See our group page for more information regarding each specific group.
 

MENTORING (THE FAST TRACK)

One of the fastest ways to grow is to spend time with a believer who is a few steps further along in their walk with Christ. Mentoring involves discussing what God says in light of current circumstances, Bible study, encouragement and accountability. For more information contact us.
