Next Steps

When we make Jesus Lord of our life, we are committing to follow Him and become like Him.  The New Testament gives us a glimpse of what a Christian (a ‘little Christ’) looks like and behaves like.  We call the process of becoming like Jesus ‘discipleship’.  Discipleship is a journey that encompasses all of who we are and what we do.

Along that journey, we will encounter key milestones that lead us to new growth.  The Next Steps exist to help clarify the path of discipleship.  They act as a road-map for the journey.  Each Next Step includes a relationship, environment, or tool that you can utilize to begin growing towards that milestone.

Using the Next Steps begins with recognizing where you are.  Determine which of the steps you are currently growing in and then discover what your Next Step looks like.

Become a Steward

Each of us has a variety of resources that have been given to us by God: time, talents, and treasures.  Stewardship is the act of learning how to use those resources in a way that honors God.  We offer Financial Peace University multiple times each year and the Stewardship Challenge as a method of achieving the milestone of stewardship.
