Next Steps

Moving forward in your relationship with God

The Journey

We are glad that you have taken the first step by visiting us online or attending one of our services.  The next and most important step, if you haven’t already, is accepting Christ as your personal savior.  No matter where you are in your journey, we are here to help you move forward in your relationship with God and to assist you in becoming a devoted follower and disciple of Christ.  Accomplishing that goes beyond just weekend worship.  It’s important to become part of a community where we all grow together.

Building Your Relationship

grow deep & live tall - Col 2:7-8

Bible Study

Get to know more about God and HIs thoughts and desires for you.  It is impossible to have a close relationship with someone you don’t spend time with or talk to.  The Bible is relevant to your everyday life.  When studying it, you will find guidance, hope, advice, prayers,  promises, blessings and encouragement.

Become Part of our Church Family

Membership is always available for those who want to become a part of the Church of God and Saints of Christ.  It is an important step in identifying with and embracing a church home.  Becoming a member means that after accepting Christ as your saviour, water baptism, and the acceptance as the Holy Spirit as your guide, you are now ready to embrace the doctrine, vision, and practices of the church.  Being a member means that you are part of a community…a family who is there to love you, support you, pray for you and build you up.

Serving

We are most like Jesus when we serve.  We each have a God-given gift to be used in service to others.  Whether you are good with words, people, technology, children, outreach or any other skills, you can find a place to do something you love.  There are numerous opportunities to serve and many ways that you can make a difference.  If you are ready to serve, you can speak with the pastor of your local church.

Continue to Grow

As believers we should always seek to grow more in the Lord.  Building that relationship is what will keep us close to God and give us that strong desire to be more like Him.  Reading and studying your Bible, attending worship services, prayer, surrounding yourself with those of like mind, seeking God’s guidance, and growing in faith are all ways to continue in growth.  Remember to witness and share the joy of the Lord with others, encouraging them to build a life with Christ as well.  That is our responsibility as believers.

SALVATION IS A GIFT

God has offered us the most beautiful gift, the gift of salvation.  It’s not something we can earn by our own goodness or efforts.  It is given to us from God through belief in His son, Jesus.  Accepting Jesus into your life is the best decision your will ever make.  Through a relationship with Jesus, you are offered hope, joy, grace, mercy, and the gift of eternal life.
