YOUR NEXT STEP

Step One: FIRST THINGS FIRST

TRUST JESUS
We firmly believe Jesus is the key to our current and forthcoming lives. Pursuing Him leads to the most fulfilling life one can imagine. Jesus forgives our past, fills us with immense joy, and serves as our guiding light of hope for the future.  When we put our faith in Jesus, everything changes!

HOW TO START
  • Admit that you have sinned
"For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard."
Romans 3:23

  • Believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins
"But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners."
Romans 5:8

  • Accept the free gift of forgiveness and be baptized
"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

BAPTISM

"Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2: 38

Baptism is the continued step that shows others we have trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. Baptism by immersion identifies us with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Baptism was commanded by Jesus and practiced by the New Testament church.

In the Bible, baptism is the physical step paired with the internal step of repentance, that is the acceptance of Jesus. At Local, we encourage you to be baptized when you accept Jesus as Lord of your life.
