HOW TO START WITH JESUS?
If you just want to know God better, or if you sense that something isn’t right between you and Him and you wish you could fix it, you don’t need to wait any longer. God loves you and is waiting for you with open arms. All you have to do is respond, and it’s not hard to do!
- Admit you have sinned and need forgiveness.
- Believe the good news of God’s love for you. You don’t have to “clean yourself up” before coming to God: He accepts you just as you are.
- Confess your sins and ask for God’s forgiveness.
- Demonstrate your decision by taking practical steps to grow in faith: baptism in water and becoming part of the Church.
WHAT'S MY NEXT STEP?
Jesus asked his followers to be baptized as a powerful outward expression of what God has done in their hearts. Baptism symbolizes Jesus’ death and resurrection and that a person has new life through him. We will be glad to guide you through this step of obedience.
COME TO CHURCH
Church is a big family, and we’d love to have you join us. As we worship and learn together in a true sense of community and connectedness, church can both help and encourage your life and journey with Jesus.
Getting connected to other believers and serving others together can be a great way to grow in relationship with God and with other believers.
Prayer is simply talking to God and having a conversation with him. Just express your heart – your thankfulness, your needs, your desires, your struggles, everything in your life. You can talk with God anywhere and at any time in your day. Our reading guide includes suggestions for daily conversations with God.
READ THE BIBLE
Through the Bible, you can learn more about Jesus and living in relationship with him. A good first step is to commit to reading the Bible just 5 minutes a day. Southeast provides a reading guide that aligns with the current sermon series each week. Reading the suggested scriptures and then learning more through the sermon is a great way to start reading the Bible. If you don’t have a Bible, please let us know. We would love to give you one!
