“Helping people take the Next Step towards Jesus Christ.”

It doesn’t matter where you are as much as where you are going.  Following Christ is a series of steps we take each day.  He allowed anyone to follow after Him, providing them a series of invitations based on where they were at:

·         “…come and see…” John 1:39

·         “…love one another…” John 13:34

·         “…remain in my words…” John 15:7

·         “…love me more than family…” Luke 14:26

·         “…eat my flesh and drink my blood…” John 6:53

·         “…deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me…” Matthew 16:24

Each invitation Jesus extended represented a step that person could take based on where they were at in their faith and commitment to Christ.  Jesus met people where they were but loved them too much to let them stay there!
