Becoming a Follower of Christ

Becoming a Follower of Christ

This five-session course looks at all the aspects involved in fully devoting your life to follow Christ.

Following Christ involves a wholehearted commitment. We cannot see a relationship with Christ as simply a ticket into heaven. When we answer the call to follow him, it's going to turn our lives in a different direction. We can't follow unless we go where he leads. This five-session course looks at centering our lives on Christ, weathering the storms of life, going where Jesus goes, caring for others, and focusing on God's grace. Note: This course was developed with Community Christian Church and New Thing Network.

Everyone who wants to follow Jesus is called to a whole-life commitment and change.
Luke 9:57–62; 2 Peter 1:3–11

In this study, investigate the wholeness of biblical Christianity - about all of our lives centering on Jesus: who is most important to us, what our lives are all about, and how we live 24/7.

Weather the Storm

Go Where Jesus Goes
Going where Jesus goes is a risky proposition, but the rewards far outweigh the risk.
Matthew 14:25–31; Luke 9:23–26; Acts14:19–20; 16:1–3

Peter saw the power and significance of Jesus' life in his sovereignty over even the elements of nature, and he wanted to experience it, too. He wanted to join Jesus in doing what only Jesus could do.

Session Four

Following Christ Means Caring for Others
God often meets people's needs through his followers.
