How do I start following Jesus?

Jesus wants you to have an incredible life filled with purpose and power.  He wants you to repent and believe the good news (Mark1:15).  Of course, following Jesus isn’t easy.  Jesus said that you have to pick up your cross in order to follow Him (Mark 8:34-38).  That means Jesus is boss of your life.  Right now you can “confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord,and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” (Romans 10:9-10).  If you would like for someone from the church to contact you about your questions or your decision to follow Jesus, call us at 361-994-0266.
