WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A CHRISTIAN?
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
Do you want to learn more about Salvation?
There is nothing we would like more than to meet with you and help answer questions you may have about your Salvation.
Already accepted Christ?
Water Baptism is a public testimony or the outward confession of the experience that has occurred inwardly in a believer’s life. In baptism, we stand before witnesses confessing our identification with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Water Baptism doesn’t save a person. Instead, it symbolizes the salvation that has already happened. It is a picture representing the profound spiritual truths of death, resurrection, and cleansing.
Want to be Baptized?
Study the Bible.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Bible is God’s word or God’s voice. You only begin to hear God’s voice when you begin to read the Bible as the Holy Spirit provides interpretation. God’s voice becomes clearer the more you commit yourself to study the Bible daily.

Obedience to the word of God.
Your obedience to the word of God is your only evidence that identifies you with Christ Jesus that you are a proud follower of His. Obedience also verifies your faith. It verifies that you mean to walk with God, that you meant the prayer you prayed to accept Jesus into your life, and that you were not lying to yourself when you confessed Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Build a daily prayer life.
Prayer is your means of communicating to God, your Father. God highly regards your prayer. He loves to hear your voice in prayer so much that He even rewards you for having spent time praying. Jesus revealed this mystery when he said,
“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:6
Join a Bible-believing Church.
Having believed to receive salvation, you have been grafted into the family of God. You now belong with all saved people in one big God family. Jesus never intended for any Christian to remain an island, isolated. We are to fellowship together, loving and being of service to one another, for no single person is self-sufficient. Jesus’ earnest desire for unity among Christians urged Him to pray this prayer,
“I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one” “that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one:” John 17:11,21-22
Your Christian experience is enriched when you join a church; the church will be your family. The family atmosphere inspires you, encourages you, assists you and keeps you company.
