Step 1

Relationship with Jesus Christ

THE FIRST STEP TO BECOMING A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT. JESUS WANTS TO HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU.

JESUS SAID, "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. NO ONE CAN COME TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME." (JOHN 14:6)

Step 2

Baptism

JESUS TAUGHT US THAT BAPTISM GOES HAND-IN-HAND WITH SALVATION. BAPTISM DOESN'T SAVE YOU, BUT IT SYMBOLIZES YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

WHAT DOES IT REPRESENT? THE APOSTLE PAUL TELLS US IN ROMANS 6:3-4. IT SAYS, "OR HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN THAT WHEN WE WERE JOINED WITH CHRIST JESUS IN BAPTISM, WE JOINED HIM IN DEATH? FOR WE DIED AND WERE BURIED WITH CHRIST BY BAPTISM. AND JUST AS CHRIST WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD BY THE GLORIOUS POWER OF THE FATHER, NOW WE ALSO MAY LIVE NEW LIVES. "

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? PAUL IS EXPLAINING TO US WHAT BAPTISM REPRESENTS. 'WE DIED AND WERE BURIED WITH CHRIST' REPRESENTS WHEN WE GO UNDER WATER. THIS REPRESENTS DEATH. 'AND JUST AS CHRIST WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD...,NOW WE ALSO MAY LIVE NEW LIVES.' REPRESENTS HOW JESUS HAS ENTERED INTO OUR LIVES, AND WE NOW A HAVE NEW LIFE IN HIM. THE SAME POWER THAT RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD NOW LIVES IN US.

Step 3

Devotion and Prayer

JESUS TOLD US, "REMAIN IN ME, AND I WILL REMAIN IN YOU. FOR A BRANCH CANNOT PRODUCE FRUIT IF IT IS SEVERED FROM THE VINE, AND YOU CANNOT BE FRUITFUL UNLESS YOU REMAIN IN ME." (JOHN 15:4)

HOW DO WE REMAIN IN CHRIST? WE DO IT BY READING THE BIBLE, PRAYER, DEVOTIONS, BIBLE STUDIES, AND MANY OTHER WAYS.

Step 4

Discipleship

THE BIBLE TELLS US, "LET US NOT NEGLECT OUR MEETING TOGETHER, AS SOME PEOPLE DO, BUT ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER, ESPECIALLY NOW..." (HEBREWS 10:25)

DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS HELP US TO GROW AS A COMMUNITY. IT IS A TIME WHEN WE COME TOGETHER AND PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER, STUDY THE BIBLE TOGETHER, ENCOURAGE, AND SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER.

prayer

The essential key.

PRAYER IS OF THE UPMOST IMPORTANCE AT CROSSPOINT. WHY? IT IS OUR CONNECTION WITH GOD, THROUGH JESUS. THE SPIRIT GUIDES US IN ALL TRUTH THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD, BUT PRAYER IS US TALKING TO GOD. PRAYER IS THE GREATEST PRIVILEGE A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST POSSESSES! ONCE YOU BECOME A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST, YOU BECOME A CHILD OF GOD, ADOPTED, AND IN THAT GIVEN ACCES INTO THE VERY PRESENCE OF GOD. NOT ONLY IS PRAYER IMPORTANT AS AN INDIVIDUAL, BUT AS A BODY OF BELIEVERS. PRAYER AND MEETING WITH THESE OTHER FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST IS IMPORTANT. THAT IS WHY WE MEET SUNDAY EVENINGS AT 4:30 PM TO PRAY. FOR MORE INFO, CONTACT US AT CROSSPOINTVT@GMAIL.COM
