Are you new to faith? Do you want to learn how to grow in your walk with the Lord? Do you want to be challenged to live a life for Christ and experience the abundant life He promises in Him? If you said yes to any of these questions you're in the right place.
Our GCA staff team is passionate about both parts of the Great Commission; Sharing our faith and the hope we have in Jesus through evangelism and helping new Christians and old alike grow closer to God each day through discipleship.
Whether you are new to this whole Christian life or you are looking for new ways to grow we want to give you the tools and resources to thrive!
Growth for every believer
1).Read your Bible everyday. A relationship can only deepen if you get to know the other person. Reading the Bible is a fantastic way to get to know God and the life He has for you. The gospel of John is a great place to start reading in the Bible.
2). Pray every day. Prayer is simply talking with God. He cares about you and desires to hear from you about anything and everything going on through out your day.
3). Fellowship with other Christians. Fellowship is meant to encourage each other in our faith and helps keep believers accountable in their walks with God. Be sure to find a Bible believing and teaching church in your area and fellowship there. This is also a great place to find Bible study groups, home groups or solid Christian friendships. 4). Seek one-on-one discipleship. This kind of discipleship is similar to, but different from fellowship. Seek an older mature Christian to help encourage you in your walk with God and keep you accountable to growth in Christ. This can look like meeting up weekly to get into the Word of God together, praying together and sharing your faith with others together.
Resources for growing
Here are a few resources that GCA would recommend to help you grow in your faith in addition to the steps above.
Listen to Christian podcasts and sermons. There are three here that you can start with on the topics of apologetics (reasons why we believe), leadership, and the Great Commission.
