About

What's Your Next Step?

At the beginning of this year, we were invited as a church family to take a fresh look at “The Discipleship Journey.”  This journey can be described via four significant stepping stones:

  • Exploring Christ
  • Following Christ
  • Close to Christ
  • Christ Centered

The big idea behind our invitation was this: discipleship (growing to look and act like Jesus) is a lifelong journey.  And like every journey, we need to consistently determine and take our “Next Step.”

To reinforce this key truth about discipleship, we were all invited to determine what our individual Next Step should be.  We were all asked to make a public declaration of our Next Step by placing a “footprint” on one of The Discipleship Journey posters located across the Grace Fellowship campuses. Our hope is that at least 3,000 of us will determine, declare and undertake our Next Step in 2017.

Would you prayerfully ask God to reveal your Next Step to you (and to your neighbor)?  And if you haven’t already done so, write that Next Step on one of the footprint stickers located by the Discipleship Journey posters at both campuses, and then place your sticker on that poster.


 

Baptism at Grace Fellowship

Water baptism is the next step after inviting Jesus Christ into your life. Baptism is an act of obedience to the Lord that publicly declares that you have died to an old life of sin and have been given a new life in Jesus Christ. (Luke 3:13-17; Acts 2:38-39; Luke 23:39-43). Faith in Jesus Christ is what saves a person (Ephesians 2:8-9).

At Grace Fellowship, profession of faith by baptism typically takes place by full immersion in water. However, on request, Grace Fellowship also offers other methods that have been used throughout church history: pouring (Acts 2:17-18) and sprinkling (Ezekiel 36:25-27).

For children in K-5th grade, we recommend they take Kidz 101 with a parent prior to baptism. For children who are too young to consciously choose baptism, Grace Fellowship offers both Infant Baptism (by sprinkling) and Dedication. Both forms of dedication act as a prayer that each child will one day invite Jesus Christ into his or her life.
