2 Peter 3:18

WHY SALVATION?

ACCEPT YOUR FAITH

Salvation is God’s work of saving yourself from you, believing and behaving in ways that show Jesus is in charge of your life.  Salvation is a one-time grace (regeneration) and a daily active choice (sanctification).  Engaging this decision daily changes your eternity.

John 3:16-17

WHY BAPTISM?

DECLARE YOUR FAITH

Water baptism is an outward message to show friends and family your decision to trust Jesus as your savior.

1 Peter 3:21

WHY GATHER?

EXPRESS YOUR FAITH

We gather in large groups following the early church model of singing and receiving a message from God’s word.   The large gathering serves those who have not started their relationship with Jesus and prepares followers to engage the world the rest of the week.

Colossians 3:16

WHY CONNECT?

EQUIP YOUR FAITH

Small Groups allow for a growing connection with other followers of Jesus, to strengthen and apply your relationship with Jesus, and to transparently meet one another’s needs.

Hebrews 10:24-25

WHY BUILD?

GROW YOUR FAITH

Building your faith is the actions you take personally to fuel and grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit.  Just as you could not go weeks and months avoiding a spouse or friend and believe you will grow, so it is in your personal walk with Jesus Christ.

James 4:8 

WHY SERVE?

LIVE YOUR FAITH

Just as Jesus served us with his life so we activate our gifts and talents to serve others.  Serving is the fulfillment of our part in the body of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 4:10

WHY GIVE?

TRUST YOUR FAITH

Everything we own or receive is a gift from God.  We manage His resources and therefore giving is an act of trust that that Jesus is king in your life.

Colossians 1:10

WHY SHARE?

SHARE YOUR FAITH

Because you have a story, a story that will impact someone to make a decision to follow Jesus Christ.  A follower Jesus Christ is always prepared to share their story of faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

Romans 10:9-10
