Welcome to the family of God. Accepting Christ as your Lord and Savior is a life-changing moment. That decision has allowed the God of the universe, the God who created the Heavens and the earth, the God who sent His only begotten Son (John 3:16) to die on the cross for you to come and dwell within you. This is a decision that will not only change your life, but it will change the lives of those around you. As you begin this journey, there are some key things that you need to know. The video below will help you get started.
One of the most important things a new believer needs is community. You cannot grow in the Lord alone. Here at The Road, we have many different opportunities for community. If you go to our ministries page, you will see many different ministries that we would love for you to join.
Above all else, make it a priority to know Christ. The goal of Christianity is to make this verse in Acts 17:28 a reality, “for in Him we live and move and have our being…” The way to do that is by encountering Christ. We encounter Christ through the scriptures and prayer. Reading the Bible should become the most important thing that you do. Second to that is praying. Scriptures give your prayers substance.
There are many more things we can say about the Christian life, but we will pause here for now. Watch the EmpowerU videos, find community and reach out to us if you have any questions.
