Faith's Response

Read the Bible starting with the New Testament, spend time talking and listening in quiet with Jesus every day, and tell Jesus that He is your Lord and Savior. He has promised to always be with you.

We are new creations in Christ—dead to the old life and alive to please God.

Talk though your new identity in Christ with Pastor Tom Crandall as he shares his personal transformation when encountering God at 18. Emphasizing the centrality of the Cross, he explains that Jesus' sacrifice goes beyond forgiveness, bringing a fully new identity for those born again. Learn the beauty of repentance and baptism as a response to God's work in your life, and discover the significance of leaving behind the old life and embracing your new identity in Christ.

Key Scriptures: Isaiah 53, Romans 6:23, John 1:12, Romans 6, Acts 2:38, Book of Ephesians

Faith's Response

Get baptized as soon as you can! Baptism is a physical act that shows the inner reality that you are leaving behind the old life and rising in the new.

A heart touched by the love of God will start immediately overflowing!

Be encouraged to live from the overflow of your life with God as Pastor Tom Crandall emphasizes the importance of sharing your faith and experiences with others. Pastor Crandall illustrates how expressing God's love can impact those around us, urging us to be bold in sharing our stories and encounters with Jesus. You are carrying God’s presence with you now, and through you, others can have an encounter with God!
