INVITATION #1: BELIEVE
God sent Christ into the world for us. Christ died on the Cross, but was raised from the dead by the power of God for us. If we believe this in our heart and confess it with our mouths: the scriptures declare we are saved. We become a part of God’s family and we now have eternal life. Accept that invitation and believe today. [Link to Accept Christ]
INVITATION #2: BEGIN
You are beginning a brand new life—one filled with the grace, peace, and joy that can only come from knowing God on a personal level. Now that you have believed, God wants you to belong. That’s your NEXT STEP! Belonging starts with completing and submitting a MEMBERSHIP PROFILE FORM and you are on your way to becoming “a person on the grow.”
INVITATION #3: BELONG
Every weekend during each worship celebration, we host our DNA Seminar that you have to attend in order to become a member. Our TEAM WELCOME representative will inform you of the location for the following week’s gathering.
INVITATION #4: BAPTIZE
After you complete the DNA Seminar, the next step in your spiritual journey is baptism. Baptism is a symbol. When immersed in the water, it symbolizes the burial of life without God and when you lifted up out of the water, it symbolizes the beginning of your new life with God. Included in this packet is an information sheet on our baptism process and a CD message by our Senior Pastor, Dr. Lance Watson to help you understand fully what baptism entails. Our TEAM WELCOME representatives will ensure that you’re scheduled and know what to expect.
INVITATION #5: BECOME
Once you have completed the DNA Seminar and been baptized, our TEAM WELCOME representative will schedule you to receive your official welcome into our church family. This is a BIG moment, so you’ll want to invite your family, neighbors, co-workers and friends to celebrate with you!
INVITATION #6: BENEFIT
