If you have prayed this prayer, it is important to tell someone! Tell a friend, a family member, call or e-mail us at the church (907) 479-4380, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have received Jesus and put your trust in Him, you become a child of God (John 1:12). He is your Heavenly Father, and like any Father, He wants you to have a close relationship with Him. You develop this relationship as you listen to Him (primarily through the Bible), and as you speak to Him in prayer.
The Bible is the Word of God, and you might find it helpful to begin by reading a few verses of John's Gospel (the fourth book in the New Testament) every day. Ask God to speak to you as you read. If you don't have a Bible, we'd love to give you one. Just drop by the church and ask.
Start to speak to God each day in prayer. Simple prayers are best! Like any parent, God is happy to hear from His kids!
We also encourage you to get connected to a great, Bible-teaching church. . . like this one!! Church is essentially a gathering of Christians who get together to worship God, to hear what God is saying to them, to encourage one another, and to make friends. It is a very exciting place to be!
