Life with Christ does not end with Salvation. Jesus told His disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me” Matthew 16:24.
The symbol of the cross represents putting to death our own plans and following the will of Christ daily. Jesus calls us to believe in Him and become fully devoted followers of Him.
Christ's all knowing power, endless love and ever-present guidance allow us to trust Him with every facet of our lives and our future. Trusting Him and surrendering our lives to Him allows Him to do a Great Work within us.
So What's Next?
After you have trusted the Lord as your Savior, what is next? Below are some next steps to help you on your faith journey. Email Us to find out how we can help you more!
The writers of the New Testament share with us details of the early church. Members were closely connected and carried the responsibility of sharing Christ with others. New Life follows this example and encourages believers to be united with a community of other followers of Jesus Christ.
Jesus teaches that the next important step after salvation is being baptized as an outward showing of your salvation.
Connect & Grow
We are encouraged to live out our faith by connecting and growing. "And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him.” Colossians 2:6 You can do this by reading your Bible, praying, and getting involved in some of New Life's ministries.
Make a difference serving in your church or community by volunteering or starting something new.
Giving shows our reliance on God's provision. It allows us to take part in HIS great work and acknowledges that all we have is HIS.
Show and Share Christ
Romans 10:14 says "But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?" As a follower of Jesus Christ we are His representatives on earth, we carry the truth and may be the only Gospel people ever know.
