    Step 2: Grow


    Read your Bible

    After you accept Jesus as your Savior your old life has gone and it is important to renew your mind with the Word of God. The bible says the Word of God is life to those who hear it and healing to all their flesh (Proverbs 4:20-22). Focus on the New Testament to begin.


    Attend Church

    Regularly attend church to get fed the Word. The bible makes it clear that we should not forsake the gathering of our other fellow brothers and sisters in Christ (Hebrews 10:25). The bible also makes it clear that where 2 or more are gathered in the name of Jesus God’s presence shall be there (Matthew 18:20). Family Church Erie is a great place to get fed the Word.



    There are many verses in the Bible that instruct us to pray such as Ephesians 6:18, Philippians 4:6, and 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to name a few. Prayer keeps us humble before God, allows us to communicate to God, gives us power over evil, and is always available with many other benefits. To begin, pray to the best of your ability and as your grow in your walk with Jesus your prayers will become more and more honed.

    Step 3: Serve


    Many are called but few are chosen. As you continue your relationship with Christ you may feel a tug to honor God in a greater capacity by serving in the church. As you remain faithful towards the things of God it will become apparent that God has a purpose for you. Serving in the church is a great way to show honor, faithfulness and reveal higher callings upon your life.
