Grow in Faith

Spiritual growth doesn't happen by accident. A disciple/follower of Jesus must commit to the process of growing and maturing in their faith and disciplines. 


Check out several ways you can take another step in your faith journey. 

Becoming a disciple

Every believer has experienced that moment when they knew for certain that they were destined for heaven - not because they had deserved it, but only through faith in Jesus Christ. This experience is called SALVATION to use Biblical terminology. 


If you  would like to learn more about the Christian faith, we recommend that you view a short film "The Cross" or "The Value of a Soul". These movies present the truth of the Gospel and eternal life in a remarkable way, sure to connect with your soul and help your move closer in your walk with Christ.

As always, one of our pastors would be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the Bible, your faith, or spiritual matters of any kind. If you truly believe, you are a disciple of Jesus!

Baptism

We encourage all new believers to take their #nextstepinfaith being baptized in one of our Sunday morning worship services as a public profession of faith in Jesus.


We offer baptism four times per year. Please let the office know if you are ready for such a milestone event in your life. A one-hour baptism class taught by Pastor Mike is required.


We also offer Basic Bible Studies by meeting one-on-one with a mature believer for 1-2 hours at your own pace. Contact Pastor Nate for more info on this effective method of discipleship.




Additional "next steps" could include: 

  • attending a Connexions Tour
  • completing a one-time Discover Class
  • explore a Discipleship Class
  • joining a D-Group
  • taking a personal online assessment

Discipleship classes

On any given  week, a couple hundred of our folks get together in classes for interactive Bible teaching, discussion and, of course, some great fellowship.   


Classes are available Sunday mornings at 9:15 or 10:45am or Wednesday night "Boost" at 6:45pm. The door is always open and a chair available for the first-time guest. Adult class sizes are typically 10-30 people.We hope you will join us!

D-Groups

We encourage everyone to get more involved in the life of the church by joining one or more of the following kinds of D-Groups. At the very least, we hope that growing believers in Christ would be making contact with other people in a meaningful ways with encouraging words or conversations. These encounters we like to call TouchPoints. 


LifePoint

These D-Groups typically meet twice per month at various times and places for fellowship, prayer, a book/Bible study, or whatever else they decide to do. Each group encourages involvement within the church and beyond. Groups sizes are 6-15 adults plus any children. 


Groups are fluid which means they go through all kinds of seasons of life together. Many of them are organic in the sense that they are always evolving and reforming, and sometimes new groups are started.


LifePoint 101 group is only a few months long and 6-8 meetings. It's for people who have not been apart of a LifePoint D-group yet. New groups are forming now. Enter your name and email and we will be in touch with you. 

Sign-up for LIFEPOINT 101 >


ConnectPoint

These D-Groups are one-on-one or trios of people getting together for purposeful conversation throughout a season of life.


MissionPoint

These D-groups gather to plan  and execute a missional project, program or event.
