Your First 6 Steps In Your Walk With Christ!
Saying Yes! means you acknowledge that you have fallen short of righteousness and God's example of holiness; we call that sin. Then, you believe and confess (say) that Jesus paid for all sins by His death on the cross, and you want His payment to be applied to your life. You have repented (changed your mind, turned and started going back toward God), confessed and believed. That's all it takes to become a child of God, a part of God's family. It is the beginning of a lifelong journey to become more like God, to love Him fully and to live the life you were created to have.
We believe that the best and most fruitful growth in the Christian life is done side by side, life on life!

As we read God's words, we begin to see how God responds to things. Doing daily devotions re-patterns the way we think and transforms the spirit of the mind. Then, when we face similar situations as Jesus did, we begin to respond in the same way.
