The Bible says that being connected to God is acknowledging and believing in Jesus Christ’s life, death and resurrection as the payment for your sin so that you can have a personal relationship with God that will last beyond this life. We are told to publicly affirm this belief in Jesus by being baptized as a symbol of our new life as a disciple, or follower, of Jesus.
Attend Weekend Services Regularly
The Bible teaches that one of the great expressions of a people that are loving God and others is to get together, to gather. You may know this as a church service and we love to gether with anyone who is pursuing God. There is something very spiritualy refreshing and encouraging that happens when people gather around pursuing God. No matter where you are at we can all take this step of gathering to further you pursuit of connecting with God.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:23-25

Sign up for the Baptism Class
Scripture teaches that individuals who put their faith or trust in Christ for salvation should be baptized. Baptism signifies union with Jesus Christ, specifically in His death, burial and resurrection. It is our way of telling others we are not our own, that we have been bought with a price and that we have identified with Jesus Christ (Romans 6.1-14, Matthew 28.18-2).

"I was sitting in the service and just felt God telling me to step forward and let my family know about my love for God"
Learning to give of what we have been given is a response of those who have come to know God personally and His great love. Giving generously is an act of worship that proclaims trust in God for future provision. At Community Church we practice faithful giving to our local church that we call “first fruits,” the first portion of anything we receive. The Bible gives several examples of people choosing to give God this first portion, trusting that he will provide the rest to meet their needs. As a church, we take the 8% of this giving and put it toward the GO budget, in which we are giving and partnering with outside organizations or individuals that are in alignment with our vision, mission and values. (2 Corinthians 9.6-15)
