Congratulations! You’ve decided to dedicate your life to following Jesus. You may be wondering what’s next on your journey. We want to help!
What does it mean to follow Christ?
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3:23 (NLT)
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8 (NLT)
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NLT)
If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 (NLT)
A SYMBOL OF YOUR FAITH
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. Romans 6:4 (NLT)
If you’ve made the decision to follow Christ, baptism is one of the most meaningful next steps you can take. Baptism is a public celebration of your decision to follow Christ.
What do followers of Christ believe?
Brazos Fellowship is a non-denominational Christian church. We believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose again, and we worship God as the creator of the universe.
Through our relationship with Jesus, we believe that we are forgiven and redeemed. It is our mission to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and share this faith with the world.
How Do I Grow My Faith?
God wants to have a relationship with us and He’s given us ways to know Him better. As we get to know God we better understand His plan for us, we trust him more, and we can strive to be more like Jesus.
