3 simple steps to become a follower of Jesus…

SORRY God for the sin and wrongdoing in my life.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 3:23

THANK YOU Jesus for dying on the cross, so that I could be forgiven.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

PLEASE be my Savior and Lord.

That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:9

If you want to accept Jesus Christ into your life just pray this prayer:

Dear God, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to earth. I believe Jesus was who He said He was and proved it by rising from death. I want to discover and begin following Your plan and purpose for my life. I want to get to know You personally. Thank You, Jesus Christ, for dying for me and forgiving all my sins. I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for Your free gift of eternal life.

If you have questions, or would like someone to talk with as you make this decision, we would love to know.

BAPTISM

We believe that baptism is essential for every believer who has repented of sin and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior. Baptism at Purpose Church is done by total immersion in water, just as Jesus was.

Baptism is a symbol of Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection and new life. (Romans 6:4) It is a way of uniting ourselves with Jesus (Galatians 3:27). It is further an outward expression of an inner commitment (Ephesians 2:8-9)

We totally understand that with this topic and big decision comes many questions. Why should I get baptized? How should I get baptized? What is the meaning of baptism? Who should get baptized? We want to answer these questions the best that we can as you go forward in this step of obedience.

We have baptisms every 3 months. Let us know if you want to get baptized. We are so excited for you as you walk through this process, and please know that we are here to help you each step of the way.
