I’ve Committed My Life to Christ, Now What?

First of all, we are so thankful for the decision you’ve made.  It’s the best decision of your life, and we are Celebrating with you!  It’s a HUGE Deal!  Here at Crossroads, we are committed to helping you grow in your relationship with God, and discover God’s plan for your life.

 

When a person genuinely commits their life to Jesus, things will begin to change in their life.  They don’t instantly become perfect, but there is a desire to grow and make changes to become closer to God, and to grow into what God wants them to be.

 

Here are some habits, routines and next steps that we encourage you to take.  These things will help you dive deeper into your relationship with God and his plan for you.

 

 

Habits:

 

Prayer

Spending time with God daily through prayer is one of the most important keys in growing in your relationship with God. Prayer is simply talking to God, acknowledging who He is, thanking Him for what He’s done in your life, sharing your needs with him, and asking for His guidance and direction. It’s through daily prayer that we become closer to God and learn to trust Him with our lives.

Bible

The Bible is simply God’s word. It teaches us what is true and helps us see what needs to change in our lives. When we spend time daily in God’s word, and apply what God’s Spirit reveals to us, we begin to change. Not only do we become more like Christ, we become equipped with the truth and understanding we need to do what He has called us to do with our lives. There are many different tools that can help us understand and apply the Bible better. Devotional books, and the Bible app that you can download on your phone are just two examples! 

 

 

Routines:

 

Worship

Creating the habit to attend one of our weekend services every week is so important! The worship service will not only refresh and encourage you, it will help you stay connected with other Christians, and give you an opportunity to serve and make a difference in the lives of those who are coming to church and experiencing God for the first time!

Connect

God did not create us to do life alone. He created us for relationships, and to connect with other believers. This is key in our spiritual growth. The way we connect with each other at Crossroads is through small groups. We encourage you to find a group, connect and commit to regularly meeting with them, and you will see your life grow and change!

Serve

Once we are saved, our whole life is about helping others to find and accept Christ. We were created to serve others as Jesus did. At Crossroads, we have a Dream Team where you can find a place to serve every week and ultimately make a difference in lives of others.

 

 

Next Steps:

 

Baptism

Water Baptism is an outward public expression that you’ve committed your life to Christ. When we take the step of water baptism, we are following the example set by Jesus, demonstrating our changed life, and declaring our commitment to follow Christ publicly.

Discover Crossroads

Discover Crossroads is a four-week class that repeats every month. In this class, we discover our purpose and how God wants to use our lives to make a difference for Him. If you haven’t attended this class yet, please make plan to join us this Sunday!
