It is often said the "first," step is the hardest to take. At DTC Church: Our vision is to reach as many people as we can in the Rio Grande Valley and help them become committed followers of Christ. To help you get going on this amazing journey we created what is called NEXT STEPS.
Entering into a relationship with Jesus is the first and most important step on your faith journey. It all begins and ends with Jesus.
Apart from Jesus we are lost, unforgiven and disconnected from our Creator God. 2000 years ago through His life, death and resurrection Jesus made a way for man to enter into a right standing relationship with God. Many people know religion and know of God but they don’t have a personal relationship with God. Jesus words to the first disciples were “come follow me”. He echoes those same words to you here in the 21st century, “come follow me”.
Jesus invites you to follow him. He wants to teach you and He desires to speak vision and direction into your life. Through a growing relationship with God you will discover your purpose and destiny in life.
You can call upon the Lord through a prayer like this one:
“God, I know that through Jesus I am forgiven and I am saved. Lord Jesus, forgive me of all my sins and mistakes I receive your mercy and grace. I turn from darkness to light and I confess you as my Savior and Lord. Today, I commit my life to you and your leadership. I want to learn about you and follow you all the days of my life in Jesus name I pray.”
In Jeremiah 29:11 the Bible says, “God’s plans for you are good, not to harm you but to give you hope and a future. It’s a new season for you; your past is now behind you and God has some great things in store for you.
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF BAPTISM?
IT ILLUSTRATES CHRIST´S BURIAL AND RESURRECTION.
“Christ died for our sins… He was buried… and He rose again.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
“For when you were baptized, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism you were also raised with Christ.” Colossians. 2:12
IT ILLUSTRATES YOUR NEW LIFE AS A CHRISTIAN.
WHEN SHOULD I BE BAPTIZED?
AS SOON AS YOU HAVE BELIEVED.
There is no reason to delay. As soon as you have decided to receive Christ into your life, you can and should be baptized. If you wait until you are “perfect”, you´ll never feel “good enough”!
