Next Steps: Grow Your Faith

Discovering Jesus. Being Like Jesus. Sharing Jesus.

Next Steps

Want to get to know God? Let’s learn how.

We’ve found that two of the best ways to get to know God better are through prayer and reading your Bible. We understand that they both can feel daunting if you’ve never done them before! So we have some tips and resources to help you grow in your faith through prayer and reading your Bible.

Start Praying

Start praying (talk to God and approach him in Jesus’ name…God hears you…really!). There aren’t any magic words. Just talk with God like you’d talk with a friend. You can be honest and straightforward. It starts with your desire to connect with and know God and grows from there.

But prayer really comes alive when you pair it with reading your Bible.

Read Your Bible

You can’t have a close relationship with someone you never talk to. It’s impossible. God’s word—the Bible—is the primary way He speaks to us. And it’s the absolute best way to discover how to follow Jesus on a daily basis. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your next step.

You can download the YouVersion bible app for free for your phone or tablet. Also, stop by our Welcome table on a Sabbath to get a free Bible on us.

Then start reading. 10 minutes a day. 

We suggest starting with The Gospel of John and then reading Romans.

Become a Disciple

You can learn even more effective ways to develop your prayer and bible study in a Discipleship Class. You will also learn about scripture memorization, commitment, time management, sharing your faith, spiritual gifts and more. Becoming a disciple helps you live out  the mandate Jesus left with his disciples to “go into all the world and make disciples!”
