Beginning your walk with Jesus


So you've decided to ask Jesus into your life. We're so stoked that you're on this journey of getting to know Jesus more! But what now? What is next for you?

There are many questions you may have swirling around in that mind of yours; questions such as:

  • "How do I read the Bible?" 
  • "How do I pray?" 
  • "Do I need to go to church?" 
  • "Can I keep my faith private?" "
  • Why don't I feel any different?" 

These, along with other good questions, are normal questions to grapple with. It's best that you write down all the questions you have so that it doesn't feel so overwhelming.

It's important to remember at this point that you haven't signed up to a programme where you have to do all the right things or else you'll get kicked out of the club. No, rather, you have started a relationship with God. Just as you'd get to know a friend through spending time with them, the same is true in your relationship with God. The Bible has special things to say about different 'Christian' activities as ways to connect with, learn about and understand the God you are now in relationship with.

Browse our different resources that will help answer some of the questions you already have.

Growing Your Faith

"We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honour and please the Lord, and our lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better" (Colossians 1:9-10).

God's desire is that we grow alongside other Christians, from baby Christians into mature Christians. Check out these resources to help you in your journey!
