A four-week new believers group
Fresh Start is a four-week new believers class designed to give everyone an encouraging space to learn valuable truths and talk about who God is and what having a relationship with Jesus means for your life. This group is a safe place to ask the tough questions that may have challenged your faith.
If you are new to the Christian faith, or just need a Fresh Start in your relationship with God—you are not alone. Join with other believers to grow and experience true life change together.
The Fresh Start class happens on 4 consecutive Sundays from 5:00-6:00pm. Classes are currently “zoom” classes.
It’s time for your Fresh Start
Ready to be Baptized?
Baptism is an outward expression of what you have already decided in your heart. If you are ready to make that public declaration, then get started by making plans to attend our next baptism event!
What does it mean to follow Christ?
Our Sin:We are all born with a sin nature. Because of our sin, we are unable to have a relationship with God without forgiveness. The Bible says "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard." Romans 3:23 NLT
God's Gift:We can’t earn God’s forgiveness – it must be given. Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice so that we could be forgiven. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8 NLT
Our Response:We must accept this free gift from God by committing our lives and heart to Jesus. If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 NLT
What do followers of Christ Believe?
We believe in God as the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are all one God and are joined together into what we call the Trinity. As a fully devoted follower of Christ, you are a new creation made to live for Him.
God the Father:God is the creator of the world and calls us His children.See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him. 1 John 3:1 NLT
The Son:Jesus is fully God and fully man and is alive today in Heaven. See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him. 1 John 3:1 NLT
The Holy Spirit:The power of God is alive in us through the Holy Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us. Corinthians 2:12 NLT
How do I grow my faith?
God wants to have a relationship with us and He’s given us ways to know Him better. As we get to know God, we better understand His plan for us and we can strive to be more like Jesus.
Read the Bible:The Bible is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. It’s God’s Word written specifically to guide us through life. Find a Bible reading plan to help you make the Bible part of your everyday life.
You can also dig deeper into God’s word with the What's Next Bible plan. Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 NLT
Make Prayer Part of Your Day:Prayer is talking to God, and there’s nothing more powerful than asking for God’s help. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 NLT
Listen:Talking to God isn’t a one-way street – He wants to talk to us, too. Take time to learn His voice and listen to His direction for you. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27 NLT
Worship:Any time we give God credit for His goodness, we are worshipping Him. When we pray, serve, or help others in their faith, we are following God’s will and showing our gratitude for who He is. Honor the lord for the glory of his name.Worship the lord in the splendor of his holiness. Psalms 29:2 NLT
What’s my next step?
Just like any other relationship, we need to invest time and effort into getting to know who God is and what He wants for us.
