We want to help you become the person God made you to be. What's your next step in that journey? We're right beside you with some tools to help.

   First Steps

  • Attend church regularly. Worshiping and learning in community with others is one of the best ways to re-align yourself with God.
  • Read your Bible. God’s Word is meant to be woven throughout our lives, giving us new wisdom with each season we experience. It’s the story of His love for us since the beginning of time—something best enjoyed daily.  If you do not have a Bible contact us and we would be very happy to give you one.
  • Pray. We have the privilege of a direct connection to the Creator of the universe. Through prayer, God addresses our deepest hopes and fears, gives us direction, and expresses His love to us. For help in developing a regular time of daily prayer, download the Pray 7:14 app to your tablet, smart phone or desktop.  

   Essential Next Steps

  • Get Baptized. Baptism is our way of telling the world about our relationship with Christ. Jesus did it, and it’s an important way we can follow His footsteps.
  • Give. When we give, it acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have, reflects our trust that He will continue to provide for us, and allows us to be a part of His work here on earth. It’s something we do with joy.
  • Bring your family. Following Jesus is a journey that becomes even more meaningful when shared. A great way to lay the groundwork is getting your kids involved in the ministry that’s designed just for them.
