Become Part of a Local Church Family:
The first and best place to "come & see" who Jesus is and what His Kingdom mission is all about is to regularly connect with a local church family. You will grow best as a follower of Jesus when you gather together and share community with others who love Jesus and are seeking to walk faithfully with Him in trust and obedience. Becoming a part of a local church family will help you learn more of God's Word (the Bible) and how it applies to your life. Your church family will encourage you and give you opportunities to live out your new life in Christ. And, your church family will encourage you to take opportunities to share the gospel with others who have yet to come to know Christ. Below are three examples of churches I would recommend to anyone who is seeking a church family to do life with. There are others. If you need help finding a church family to live out your new life in Christ with, please ask and I will be very glad to help you.
