Whether today is the first time you’ve ever set foot in a church or you’ve been attending your whole life, we believe you are on a faith journey. At Faith Church, we want to make this journey exciting and easy to navigate. Our Next Step Classes can help you move into a place where you are getting closer to God with the help of our community.
What will I learn?
These three classes outline a discipleship model that we hold to. Sadly, many churches expect people to dress a certain way, act a certain way, recite memorized prayers and fit the mold before anyone is welcome to attend. The model would go: Behave -> Believe -> Belong. Our church, however, has a different model: Belong -> Believe -> Become. You belong in our church regardless of who you are and what you believe, but our hope is that the longer you stick around, the more you start believing and the more you start becoming all who God desires you to be. This was how Jesus did ministry, and this is how we do ministry.
In the first class, you’ll discover what makes Faith Church different from other churches. We’ll take a deep dive into our history, mission, vision, and more. We do things purposefully, and we’ll show you how and why. We’ll introduce you to our staff and volunteer leaders, and give you an overview of the values that drive our culture from the top down. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in the faith, or even that you are in the faith - this class is for anyone to understand the kind of community they belong to here at Faith.
What does Faith Church believe about ______ ? How can I grow in my faith journey? Where’s the best place for me to learn about God? All of these questions and more will be answered at our second Next Step class. We’ll cover our core essential beliefs, some practices you can incorporate into your life, and seek to answer any questions you have that might arise in the discussion. If the answer doesn’t satisfy you, or if you need further clarification, stick around after the class to talk more with the class leader.
Our last Next Step class will focus on who God has designed you to be. The goal of every Christian is to become more like Christ. Part of that process is understanding your own unique wirings, so that you can better love God and love others. Not only that, but God has equipped every believer with spiritual gifts to be used to build up the church, so we’ll look at some of the areas where you can use your gifts to serve in our church, in our community, and in our world - all for His kingdom!
