I'M SAVED, NOW WHAT?
Congratulations on your decision to follow Christ!
Your decision to become a Christian is great, but there is more. This is just the beginning of your new life in Christ. When you were saved, you did not immediately become a full grown Christian, but you became a “babe in Christ.” Scripture commands you to “grow”. . . to become a “disciple” (2 Peter 3:18). In doing so, you glorify God and become all He intends you to be.After being baptized, here are three initial and essential steps you should take as a new believer:
Attend an Amity worship experience weekly with your new family of believers for powerful worship, applicable teaching, and Christian fellowship. If you try to live the Christian life alone, failure will result. In unity, there is strength.“ . . . not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:25)
Set aside a few moments each day to make Bible reading a part of your life. Look for promises to claim, commandments to obey, examples to follow, and sins to avoid. Your growth as a Christian will be directly related to your personal application of the Word of God. Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4)
Make prayer a regular part of your life. Pray for people and specific things. A prayer list may prove helpful. There is nothing too great and nothing too small to take to the Lord in prayer. Thank God for all He has done for you. Ask Him for the strength and help you need to live for Jesus Christ. “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace . . .” (Hebrews 4:16)
Although a great start, there is far more to the Christian life than what has been listed here.
Start by attending our Discipleship Workshop and see Amity’s Disciple’s Pathway to continue growing toward the fullness of God.
Consider being a part of our Amity family by becoming a New Steward, and attending our next orientation.
