Becoming a Christian

Becoming a Christian is both a momentary and lifelong decision. It begins when God’s love touches us and moves us to make a conscious choice to open our hearts to Jesus Christ. Once we have made that choice, we come to the community and ask to be baptized. As we enter the water or it is poured over our heads, we are reborn as children of God.

That is only the beginning of the journey. We are called to daily choose the way of Jesus. We join in his mission of compassionate love, peace making and justice. We will do well on some days and not so well on other days. We will feel at times like we are filled with God’s spirit and at other times like we are lost and alone. But our actions and our feelings do not change the fundamental truth of our relationship with God. We are God’s whether we like it or not.

If you would like to become a Christian or speak with someone about the possibility of making that step, we invite you to contact us via e-mail or phone. We would love to walk with you through this life changing and life giving step.
