After you are saved the next really important step is to get baptized. Baptism is the outward expression showing everyone what you have already done on the inside when you accepted Christ as your savior. We get baptized because we are saved, not to be saved.
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” – Acts 2:38
It’s important that you find a bible believing and gospel preaching church and that you attend regularly so that your faith can be strengthened by the preaching of God’s Word. We believe Covenant City Church is that place.
As you go, you will grow spiritually and will be encouraged by the fellowship of the other Christians around you. The church is where we go to worship God and we can learn how to be a Christian. It’s also where the Pastor and spiritual leaders can help you and encourage you in your faith.
The Bible clearly warns us not to be absent from church, we need the strength and encouragement of fellowship with other believers.
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” –Hebrew 10:25
Millions of people are lost and think their good works will get them to heaven, but the truth is, without Christ their deeds will never pay the price for their sins. EVERYONE NEEDS CHRIST! Not a single one of us can make it to heaven on our own and we all need to hear the Good News! Imagine how many people would be saved if the newspaper simply printed the good news on the front page every day? But sadly they don’t.It’s up to us as Christians to share the good news with others. Maybe you know someone close to you who doesn’t know Christ and isn’t saved and on their way to heaven, you can lead that person to Christ. If you don’t know what to say, just share what you know and what God has done for you. If they know they are a sinner and need a savior and they want to pray and ask forgiveness of their sins and trust Christ as their savior then you can lead them in prayer or let them pray on their own, it’s really simple..
“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.” – Matthew 10:32
“A gift opens the way and
