“In this world you are either growing or dying, so get in motion and grow.” (Lou Holtz). Our relationship with Jesus is not meant to be a one and done event, it is meant to be alive and growing. As Jesus is transforming us from the inside it will begin to change our priorities and habits. Below are some steps we can take and groups you can join to engage the growth that Jesus is calling us to:
Reading the Bible
Reading the Bible reveals not only God’s character to us, it helps us understand His plan for our lives through the events of others. The Bible is not some book that was written thousands of years ago with no relevance to life today. It is a compilation of events, lessons, and letters that is as applicable to today as when they were written. If you do not have a Bible, feel free to take one of the Bibles that we have in the seat back, download the Youversion app on your phone or tablet, or find it at youversion.com. Youversion is a great resource full of reading plans that deal with where you find yourself in life or certain subjects that you may be curious what the Bible says about them.
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty.
Faith in Jesus is the only way to bridge the gap between God and ourselves, and to restore us to what He designed us to be. Beginning a relationship with Jesus is the most important decision you will ever make.

Baptism is a symbolic representation of an internal decision. It is a public profession of faith made by those who have committed their lives to Jesus Christ and an opportunity for the church family to celebrate and support those who have made this life changing decision. While not essential to salvation, Jesus in Matthew 28 stresses its importance in His last conversation with the disciples before His return to the Father.

Are a chance to grow your relationships with God and with our church family. New groups are always forming!
Here are a few of the current groups:
Prayer is simply having a conversation with God. We do not have to use special words, be kneeling, have our eyes closed, or be in the church to have a conversation with God.
He loves us and listens to us while in the car, at work, taking a walk, or anywhere we might find ourselves. Remember it is a conversation, not simply you going through your list, so it has two sides.
God has things He wants to say to you, but we need to slow down and listen.
In Mark 10:45 Jesus said that “He came to serve not be served” and an essential step in our becoming more like Jesus is us serving others.
This can mean serving in some capacity in the church, but is not limited to that. We encourage people to find ways of showing the love of Jesus by serving outside the walls of the church, and we do this corporately several times a year.
