When Jesus walked the earth, the two most powerful words he said were these: "Follow me."

Again and again, Jesus invited people from all kinds of backgrounds to believe + follow him, from the non-religious to the over-religious and everyone in between. The events of Jesus' life would go on to change the course of human history forever: his birth, life, suffering, death, and resurrection.

Soon after Jesus' resurrection, people in his day, including his closest friends and family and many others, realized that he had fulfilled ancient prophecies and promises that God would send a Savior, a "Messiah," to take away the sins of the world and set his people free for everlasting life.

Not long before he died, Jesus instructed his followers to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded." In the face of intense persecution, his followers did exactly that, full of courage and confidence after personally witnessing Jesus risen from the grave. Over two thousand years later, billions upon billions of people from countless different cultures and backgrounds have found life, joy, peace, hope, and salvation by placing their faith and their trust in Jesus of Nazareth, the man they called "Son of God."

The mission continues to this day, and the invitation from Jesus remains the same: "Follow me."

If you are ready to connect with the One who loves you most and best, to turn over the guilt of every mistake and every regret to the One who can forgive you, to experience peace and joy and life that can never be taken away from you, then it all begins by simply saying "yes," not to a religion, but to a relationship with the living God. If you want to learn more about getting started as a follower of Jesus, this video can help you with your decision:

 

Next Steps

One of our pastors can meet you in person and talk with you about your questions and about making this most important decision in your life. Click here for contact information, or simply come to the welcome area after a worship service at any of our campuses.

 

Baptism

If you have never been baptized, we encourage you to take this step after making a decision to place your faith and trust in Jesus. Baptism is one of the most important spiritual milestones in your life. The sacrament of baptism illustrates the burial and resurrection of Jesus and the new life that we have in Christ. It is an outward and visible sign of an inward grace. Baptism does not make a person a Christian because it celebrates what God has given us, not what we will give to God. It is a once-in-a-life event that we spend the rest of our lives living into.

As a United Methodist congregation, we celebrate both infant baptism and adult “believer” baptism because we see a biblical witness and recognize a tradition throughout the history of the church for both. When we baptize infants and young children, it is an expression of God’s grace that is at work in the life of every human being, including young children, even before we're aware of it, constantly drawing us into a relationship with God.

For people who have recommitted their lives to Christ and have already been baptized, we celebrate a renewal of baptism instead of re-baptizing. This is because God's promise to us remains valid, even when we turn away from God.

 

Membership

Membership is not required at our church in order to participate or serve in any of our ministries; instead, membership is how we commit to partner with Grace Church through our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.

All Christ-followers who call Grace Church their spiritual home are invited to pray about joining our community. If you are new to the church, we encourage you to spend a while getting to know us to see if membership is the next right step for you. If you have never before been baptized, we will celebrate your baptism before or when you join the church.

Children who are baptized at Grace Church are "preparatory members" and become full members when they complete our confirmation class called "Discovery," which happens when they reach 7th grade.

If you are new to the area and previously belonged to a United Methodist church, we invite you to attend the membership class to learn what is unique about Grace Church and how you can serve and grow in our community before we transfer your membership.

When you’re ready to join, the membership class is offered several times a year at every campus. Dates and details are available at your campus.
