We place connecting a person to Jesus as our highest priority.
But what exactly does that mean?
To connect with Christ is to enter into a personal relationship with him.
If you have genuine questions stopping you from placing your trust in Jesus as your Savior you are not alone. We recommend that you find answers to your questions.
Probe Ministries is one organization that seeks to answer honest questions.
We are not associated with Probe, but have found their ministry helpful
to many people who are seeking answers to important questions.
"The Bridge to life" is a resource by a group called The Navigators.
It is a simple explanation of the gospel that may be helpful to you.
"How can I know God?" is a resource by a group called Cru.
It has a number of short presentations that answer questions you may have.
We recommend that you select the "Would You Like to Know God Personally?" item.
"Real Life Stories" is a collection of videos of the personal spiritual journeys of several people who connected with Christ and trusted him as their Savior. It has been compiled
by Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York. You may find something
in common with some of their journeys to connect with Christ.
The Christian faith isn't to be lived alone. God has designed us to live in community. A priority for our church is to have each person connected with others in our church family, knowing they are loved and valued. Here are some ways to help you get connected.
