Come Back to Church
One of the best ways to continually grow your faith is to regularly experience God's presence. We hope you will do that here at Real Life. Join us on Sunday mornings! We hope to see you soon.
Get Into God's Word
We believe the Bible is the final authority for our lives. It gives us insight on how we should live and how we can experience all God has for us. If you do not know where to start, we suggest that you begin by reading the book of John in the New Testament:
READ THE BOOK OF JOHN
Talk With God
Communication is very important in any relationship. The same goes for our relationship with God. The very One who created the universe wants a personal relationship with you and to talk with you. We call this prayer. Through prayer we can share our hopes and fears, get direction, and find peace. No matter where you are, God is always listening.
Baptism is an outward declaration of an inward decision to follow Christ. The Bible tells us that anyone who follows Christ should also follow Jesus' example and get baptized. Want to take this next important step? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information.
Join a life group
Life is better and richer when you are surrounded by a support system of other Christ followers. There is nothing like having a community of people around to encourage you as you journey together. Find out how you can get connected in a Life Group here.
The best thing any Christ follower can do is to help others say yes to Jesus. Here at Real Life we have dozens of ways you can do that by getting involved with our ministry teams. Hundreds of volunteers come together each month in order to create an environment where people can experience God.
What This Decision Means
We believe that the best decision a person can make is to give their life to Christ. To become a Christ Follower, we are called to do just that: follow Christ. So what does that look like? In Romans 3:23 it says, “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard” (NLT). We all fall short, in our relationships, our decisions, family, with our finances, everything. But we aren’t left without a way out. Roman's 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord” (NIV). Jesus' death paid for the price of our sins. Jesus' resurrection proves that God accepted Jesus' death as the payment for our sins (Romans 5:8).
All we have to do to accept this “gift” is spelled out in Romans 10:9, “If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (NIV). Because Jesus died for us, all we have to do is believe in Him, trusting His death as the payment for our sins - and we will be saved!
Once we give our whole life to Christ, we cannot be separated from His love. Romans 8:38-39, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (NIV).
This gives us assurance of our salvation. Jesus’ work on the cross, his life and resurrection point to eternity with Him. "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 5:1; NIV).
