How Do I Get Involved?

Next Steps - Part 6

Amanda Chatman • E-Course

We know what it’s like to find a church home and struggle to grow meaningful friendships with others - beyond a surface level. This can leave you, your family, or kids feeling frustrated and disappointed. The good news, is it doesn’t have to be this way. There is a solution. In a church home, people often rely on others to start a friendship with them. Though we love when that happens and it should happen - it’s important we individually choose to reach out, be present, and sometimes initiate that first hello. Does that mean you have to be an outgoing people-person who loves socializing? Absolutely not. It simply means we actively put our best foot forward to serve others and grow lasting friendships - just like Jesus did. Now, there are a few ways you can start putting your best foot forward to begin interacting and growing with others.

There is only one “you” on this entire planet and we believe you have a God-given purpose that He wants to bring to life so others can discover His love. When you and I seek God’s heart, grow individually, and believe for the impossible, we become a family - a church that positively impacts cities and nations. Remember this, healthy people grow, and growing people change. We’re honored we can grow together. - Mark Ivey

What Is Church?

Next Steps - Part 2 • Lj Johnson

How we view and live out God’s definition of church will either hurt the world or bring healing to it. Most people think church is a place we go to a couple times a week. Yes, we should value coming together on a regular basis, but that is not what church is. It’s important we learn to align our view of church with God’s definition, instead of our own. Let's start with understanding this: We are one church of many in God's Kingdom. We live for the Kingdom of Heaven - which means when the church down the street wins, we all win. When we win, all churches win. Simply put, Christ Alive is our church home within this one global family. - Lj Johnson

How Do I Follow Jesus?

Next Steps - Part 3 • Ashton Ivey

The life of discipleship starts with salvation, but our salvation is the launching place of a lifestyle of learning from and following Jesus into the life that He has called us to live. Through loving obedience and submission of all that we are to God, we are invited into a completely new way of living that embraces the gospel of the Kingdom now. - Ashton Ivey
