Whether you are new to Christianity or you are a mature Christian, “The Path” is set up to help you along your journey. Find your point of progress out of those listed below.
MAKE THE DECISION TO FOLLOW CHRIST
You are loved more than you can ever know. God, the creator of the universe, loves you and has a plan for your life. He made you – on purpose and with a purpose. He knows you need help. He knows you can’t do it on your own – that’s why He sent Jesus. The way to experience God’s love and know His plans is through Jesus. If you are ready to take the next step and accept Jesus, pray this prayer verbally and with faith:
“Dear Jesus, I admit I am a sinner and ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose again. I believe you are the Son of God and I confess you to be Lord of my life. I commit my life to you and give you my past, present and future. Take my life and use it. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me. Amen.”
If you have accepted Christ into your heart or if you have questions about God’s plan for your life, let us know! Please contact us and put FIRST STEP in the subject line.
New believers are often compared to babies, meaning we are not yet mature Christians. Just like babies need milk to nourish them and not a big juicy steak, a new Christian needs to take small steps to develop their knowledge of God. The Path will help direct you along those steps. Psalm 119:105 says, “ Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” After you accept Jesus as your personal Savior, it is natural to want to grow closer to Him and learn more about Him and about being a Christian.

We also make connections with others that can lead to friendship. To learn all the areas that are available through iServe and to sign up to use your gifts, click here.
CONNECT WITH COMMUNITY GROUPS & CORE CLASSES
Core classes are a big part of the “equip” portion of our vision. From marriage to parenting and finances, core classes offer biblical advice on the issues that affect most everyone.
