Congratulations on your decision to follow Jesus Christ! Now that you are saved, Jesus invites you to experience a new life on earth. We have opportunities to help your progress in our faith and grow in your relationship with God.
Join other new believers in all stages of life to receive support and encouragement as you nurture and grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ! Our First Steps Class includes a short time of teaching combined with a small group discussion. A group leader is available at the class to answer questions and provide you with specific information regarding the numerous opportunities we have here. Also, sign up to have lunch with the Pastors.
We will dive into topics such as how we can effectively connect our modern community with the traditional message of Christ, and how to steward every gift that has been entrusted to us by God. Toward the conclusion of this class, you will have the opportunity to become a member of Tradition Worship Center and make new lasting friendships that truly impact the lives of others.
Water baptism is a symbolic burial, by which the new Christian publicly declares they have died, and are now beginning a new life, in Christ. Baptize is the English form of a Greek word which means to immerse: to place something into something else. In Christian water baptism, the believer is put completely underwater, then immediately raised out of the water. Water baptism is a statement of faith: my old life is behind me -- I am a new person, with a new life. Water baptism is a sign of repentance -- repentance means change -- a change so drastic that the old person is "buried." It does not make you acceptable to God. As a work of righteousness, trying to obtain a good standing with God, it is worthless. Water baptism is a way of giving testimony to what has happened inwardly, and a clear commitment to turn from the old life.
Life Groups our to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in a community with others and experience the full life He intends for us. Meaningful relationships can be hard to find, and that’s why life groups exist, to make life-changing relationships. It is through life together that our problems become smaller and God uses others to bring guidance and encouragement to our lives. Even when you might not realize you need it, your life group will quickly become a place where others care about what is happening in your life.
