New Believers


Receiving Jesus is the most important decision a person can ever make; it’s the beginning of a lifetime following Christ. If you’ve recently prayed to receive Jesus, we have some focused next steps for you. These two steps will offer you informational directions, and you'll also have the opportunity to build relationships with other new believers.

Water Baptism

Water baptism is an opportunity for you to publicly share your decision to follow Jesus. Now that you've accepted Him, we'd love to celebrate with you at our next baptism event!

Water baptism takes place at all of our campuses.
