We are so glad you clicked on the GET INVOLVED tab. Maybe you are just exploring or maybe you are ready to make a move in your life. Maybe you are searching but you're not sure this is for you.
That's okay! There are no special requirements to come through our doors and enjoy our services and activities. There is a dress code... you have to wear some!
Although many people come to church to socialize, be with family, or just be entertained we think that deep down people come because they are seeking to encounter God.
If you are looking to encounter God all you need is faith. Faith is a simple thing to understand. If you ever sat in a chair without checking it first you practiced faith in that chair. Faith in God is even easier because God gives us faith as a gift.
Next you need God's word. That's the bible. Combine faith and God's word and you will learn that Jesus Christ is God's son. Jesus Christ lived a sinless life. Jesus Christ died on a cross for your sins. Jesus Christ rose from the dead. Jesus Christ is seated at the right hand of God the Father right now.
"he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;"
"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin"
"Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead"
All of those words are in the bible and are the beginning of an encounter with God. It all starts here!
If you know anything you know people don't always do the right thing. If you are honest you will admit that you don't always do the right thing. That's called sin, a willing disobedience to God. Whether we like that idea or not it's true.
If we are sinners then we deserve what sinners get. God's word tells us "The wages of sin is death." Which is a nice way of saying "the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone" or a place called hell.
Not to worry though, because "God commendeth His love towards us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us." "whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
To boil it all down, if you are really looking to encounter God:
1. You must realize you are a sinner and destined for hell
