The first step in everyone's spiritual journey is making the devision to trust Christ alone for your salvation. The Bible says this about what's required of us:
"If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)"
In other words, two things are necessary: you've got to believe in Jesus and then you've got to say so. If you've decided to trust Jesus, please let us know so we can celebrate with you!
Being baptized is the first step of obedience for believers. While baptism is not what makes someone a Christian, every Christian is commanded to be baptized. Your baptism will be a time of celebration and joy.
Membership is the covenant we make with one another as a church. Every member of Christ Community agrees to remain true to the faith, engaged with our church family, and to be a part of our mission. Biblically, belonging to a local church body is essential for faithful followers of Jesus.
The first step in becoming a member at Christ Community is completing our Growth Track. Once you've done that, please setup a time with one of our ministry leaders for an in-person meeting.
From the beginning, God has wired us for community. For Christians, community means meaningful relationships centered around our faith in Christ. Community Groups are where we foster those relationships in our church. We desire for everyone who belongs to Christ Community to be in a group.
Community Groups meet in homes and on campus on almost every day of the week. In them you can expect times for food and fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.
Every Christian is called to use the skills and abilities in service to their church. The Bible teaches us that everyone has something to contribute and that it's for our own good to join the mission. In other words, you need to serve and your church needs you to serve!
To serve at Christ Community, you must be a member. Membership begins with Growth Track, so if you haven't completed that course, that's your first step. After that, we have a variety of ministry teams for you to choose from.
