As a church who is all about the grace of God through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we realize that alot of people have questions about this and are honestly trying to figure this God thing out. We are here to help you discover who Jesus really is... not the version that that world around us skews. This is a place to ask your real questions and talk with people whose lives are changed because of the true acceptance we have found in what Jesus teaches and does for us.

We believe that He’s made it possible for you to be in a good relationship with God.  

Jesus himself said:
I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well.
- John 14:6

Believing in Jesus as the way to God is not an exclusive path to God, it’s completely inclusive. No matter who you are, what you’ve done, no matter where you were born or the color of your skin, Jesus is the way for you to have a good relationship with God. Everybody’s invited. Everybody’s included. Everybody’s important.

If you think you’re an exception to the rule, you’re wrong. Jesus loves you.

So how do you actually become a Christian?
In short, God does all the work on this one. Jesus teaches that whoever believes and is baptized will be saved.  The Bible teaches that faith is a gift from God.  It also teaches that we are made a part of God's family in baptism. Being a Christian IS being a part of God's family. It's something He gives us as a gift because He loves us.  

But you’re probably thinking, “Don’t I have to be a better person first?”
No, you don’t. You don’t change in order to gain God’s love, you change because you’ve experienced His love.  The Bible says that Jesus did all His work to save us while we were broken and needing help.  God has a long history of meeting people where they are.

Here is where you can see it in the Bible,
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
-Romans 5:8

God loves us where we are, not just where He designed us to be. Gradually, over time, God’s love changes you as you follow Jesus. You change because you’re loved, not in order to be loved.

Through His death on the cross, and then coming back from the dead, Jesus took all of your wrong and gave you all of His right.

Believing in Jesus and trusting that God is for you is a big step on the greatest journey of your life. You haven’t finished the race—you’ve just gotten started.

So you want to get to know God. But how? Great question.

You can’t have a close relationship with someone you never talk to. It’s impossible. And God wants to share with you the good news that He is for you.  God’s Word—the Bible—is where you will hear Him teach you what a full life looks like, make promises to you that He will never back down from, steer you from harm and danger, confront you when you are out of alignment with Him, console you in hard times, and celebrate with you in life.

God's Word will challenge you and comfort you at the same time because we are both broken and beautiful.

God's Word is the absolute best way to discover how to follow Jesus on a daily basis, based on what Jesus Himself says. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your next step.

You can download the YouVersion bible app for free for your phone or tablet.

Also, when you are here on a Sunday, let us know if you don't have a Bible and we will give you a free copy as a gift!

Then start reading. 10 minutes a day.

We suggest starting with The Gospel of John and then reading Romans.


Here at Family of Christ, we believe that Baptism is where God does something incredible. When water is poured over someone in God’s name, that person has a new life and identity. They are God’s own child, with the promise of forgiveness, life, and salvation.
Jesus invites all who would follow Him and call Him Lord to be baptized. This invitation goes out to everyone - from newborn babies to full-grown adults.
