First things first: Christianity is NOT about RELIGION! Christianity is about RELATIONSHIP ... a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Not just the day you say "Yes" to Him, but it's an every day, every moment, lifestyle change!
Become Part of the Community! Form relationships with others in the church! Connect with those your own age! Learn from those older than you! There are many ways to be a part of the church community!
Have a personal relationship through prayer and Bible study! Praying is simply having a conversation with God. It is not just a one-sided conversation, you doing all the talking! It is also allowing God to converse with you. One of the best ways to make that happen is through studying the Bible, the Written Word of God. Jesus is also called the Living Word. As you read and study the Written Word - the Bible, you will come to have a very genuine personal relationship with the Living Word - Jesus Christ!
Follow the Lord's Instructions! When we love someone, our desire is to please them. When we truly love Jesus, we will be eager to follow His instructions! After salvation, He tells us to follow Him in water baptism, found in the Gospels - the first four books of the New Testament! He also instructs us to seek the gift of the Holy Spirit, found in the book of Acts!
This is just the beginning of a lifetime of growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, according to 2 Peter 3:18!!!
