- Making the Decision to Follow Christ
God Loves You and has a plan for your life. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Your Sin Causes a Cosmic Chasm between you and God.
“But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.” Isaiah 59:2
God Sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
It's Your Choice to receive the gift or not.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10
Ready to make the Choice? Here is your prayer:Let Us Know You Made a Decision!
Dear God, I admit that I am a sinner and that I have messed up from time to time. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and that God raised Him from the dead. I choose to follow You, Jesus, and I confess that You are my savior. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me. I love You. Amen.
- The Local Church
When you step over the line of faith and chose to follow Jesus, you become part of a movement. But this movement, Christianity, is not a solo sport. That’s why the local church exists.
Each week, the church gathers to worship God, discover his plan for our lives, and learn how to live out his priorities.
Whether you become part of Fellowship Church or another church in your area, commit to getting involved. Because the local church is crucial to your growth and experience of the abundant life Christ has in store for you!
“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:25
- Living a Life of Worship
Worship is one of those words that many people think is just a “church” word. But the truth is that every one of us worships. The question is, is our worship true worship?
True worship can be defined as this: our response to God’s identity and activity, expressed by what we say and do. It’s a 24/7 deal.
From Bible study to prayer; from attending weekend experiences to expressing generosity to those around us, true worship is something that will deepen and strengthen your relationship with Jesus each and every day.
“Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth!” Psalm 96:9
Simply put, baptism is an outward display and celebration of your inward decision to trust Christ with your eternity. It’s an act of obedience, a step of acknowledgement that is representative of the fact that Jesus died on the cross, was buried and rose again from the grave, alive, so each of us can experience eternal life.
If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, baptism is your next step in your spiritual journey.
You will be his witness to all men of what you have seen and heard. And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name. Acts 22:15-16
Most of us want to make a difference; we want to leave our footprint on the world. And God has gifted each of us with a particular set of skills to do just that—through the local church.
As a new Christ follower, one of the most powerful lessons you can put into action is serving in the church. Because when you volunteer your time and talent, you will discover the key to unlocking a life of influence and change.
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
