Now that you have trusted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, what next?
As soon as possible, seek out a faithful church that will baptize you and give you guidance and help in your new walk with Christ. Seek a church where Jesus is glorified and the Bible is taught. If you live in the Alexandria area, we would be honored to have you at West Main Baptist!
As a new believer in Christ, you must always remember that Christ “died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf” (2 Corinthians 5:15). Only by putting Christ first can we Christians experience victory in our lives. We can do this through:
- PRAYER: Pray daily. Speak to God as you would your dearest friend.
- WORSHIP: Give God the praise that He deserves. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.
- BIBLE STUDY: The Bible is the Word of God. Read it daily. The book of Luke (in the New Testament) is a great place to start.
- FELLOWSHIP: Meet regularly with other Christians who will help you grow in your new life with Christ. Finding a faithful church that believes the Bible and glorifies Jesus is a great way to begin.
- SERVICE: Serve Christ and serve your fellow human beings. We Christians do not serve out of mere duty, but out of love for our Savior, seeking to be obedient in every aspect of life for the sake of Jesus, our Lord.
- WITNESSING: Tell others about what Christ has done for the world and especially in your life. Share the good news of God’s grace with all who will listen.
