You just made the most important decision of your life, choosing to follow Jesus! As a new believer, you may have questions. You prayed and asked Jesus into your heart, but now you want to know what that actually means.
First, you need to know that means you are headed in the right direction – you are bound for Heaven. Before coming to Christ, you were separated from God by sin and on your way to a very real place called hell! But Jesus has saved you by dying on the cross in your place. The Bible says:
Since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, He will certainly save us from God’s judgment. For since we were restored to friendship with God by the death of His Son while we were still His enemies, we will certainly be delivered from eternal punishment by His life.
– Romans 5:9-10
Second, you need to know that you have been given a new life! The Bible says,
Those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!
– 2 Corinthians 5:17
As a new believer, you can expect to have new attitudes and desires. You may need to replace some old habits and patterns with new activities that will help you grow in your new life in Jesus. Growth takes time, but it begins –right now– where you are. We would be honored to help you take those first steps toward following Jesus.
Monday nights from 7pm to 8:45pm in room 41 START! is designed for people who have recently put their faith in Jesus, those still exploring what it means to follow Jesus, and those who want a refresher on what it means to build their life on the foundation of Jesus. If you’re on the fence, take the leap and join us at any point. We’ll have a seat waiting for you!
