Following Jesus?Discover purpose. TODAY!
What is your purpose? Why are you here?
If you have never believed in Jesus and completely followed Him, you don’t really have life. Some people call it being saved or salvation, but when you fully follow Jesus you receive not only forgiveness but eternal life AND a life Today that is full of purpose. Here’s something Jesus said about life:
…“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. John 14:6 (NLT)
Jesus is the life. Following Him is the only way to really know God. It’s easy to become a Jesus follower, but in order to have brand new life, you have to be willing to give up everything else. Don’t worry! You don’t have to do that alone. Jesus sends us the power we need to change by the Holy Spirit. If this doesn’t make sense yet, that’s okay. You don’t have to understand it all to find life. You just have to be willing to believe.
Are You Ready To Believe and Follow Jesus?
First, you have to believe that Jesus is God’s Son who died for you and rose again (came back to life). God did all that, just because He loved you.
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NLT)
God loved us even though we have a problem. We mess everything up. The Bible calls our mistakes sin. It’s because of sin that there’s death in the world. But God wants us not to die, but to live forever with Him.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NLT)
Everyone has sinned, and the paycheck of our sin is death. Don’t cash that check! Eternal life through Jesus is free!
If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:9-10 (NLT)
It really is that simple. Say it out loud and believe in you heart that Jesus is Lord, and that God raised Him from the dead and you will be rescued from sin and death! And there’s so much more to it than just eternal life. Imagine life Today with purpose, and a clear conscience. There’s no way we could earn or deserve such a wonderful gift of new life – so God just gives it to those who believe. Are you ready to receive that free gift, right now?
Here’s How You Pray
Guess what? If you prayed that and believed it, you’ve just crossed over from death to life. And there’s so much more good stuff ahead! Following Jesus is the most incredible life imaginable. And Today, you started that wonderful journey. You are now a brand new person!
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
We want to celebrate this new life with you and help you find your way as you learn to follow Jesus. Fill out the simple contact form below and we will send you some helpful resources. If you have a Bible, start reading in the book of John – or go here and download the YouVersion Bible App. It’s free too: Bible App

Water BaptismIt's what disciples do.
Celebrate Following Jesus
If you’ve made the decision to be a sold out disciple of Jesus, baptism is one of the most important and meaningful nextsteps you can take. Water baptism is a step of obedience by following what Jesus commanded, and it’s a testimony or response to God of a clear conscience. Baptism symbolizes the new life we have in Jesus.
Here’s a section from our beliefs on baptism. All of this description is taken directly from the Bible, and you’ll see scripture references at the bottom.
About Water Baptism
And that water is a picture of baptism (water immersion), which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from a clean conscience. It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
(Mark 16:15-16, Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38, Romans 6:4, 1 Peter 3:21)
