“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their home and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
Now that you've discovered Willow Ridge, what will you do next? It's time to be a part of what God is doing in our community, so take the next step to see what God has in store.
Do you have a relationship with God?
God loves you and has a plan for your life.
”For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
Your sin causes a gap between you and God.
“But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.” Isaiah 59:2
God sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross.
“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
It’s your choice to receive the gift or not.
“Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” Romans 10:9-10
Ready to make the choice?
Here is your prayer: Dear God, I admit that I am a sinner and that I have messed up from time to time. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and that God raised Him from the dead. I choose to follow You, Jesus, and I confess that You are my savior. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me. I love You. Amen.
Have you been baptized?
Simply put, baptism is an outward display and celebration of your inward decision to trust Christ with your eternity. It’s an act of obedience, a step of acknowledgement that is representative of the fact that Jesus died on the cross, was buried and rose again from the grave, alive, so each of us can experience eternal life.
If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, baptism is your next step in your spiritual journey.
“You will be a witness for him to everyone of what you have seen and heard. And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name.” Acts 22:15-16
Are you a part of what Willow Ridge Church is about?
When you step over the line of faith and choose to follow Jesus, you become part of a movement. But this movement, Christianity, is not a solo sport. That’s why the local church exists. Each week the church gathers to worship God, discover his plan for our lives, and learn how to live out his priorities. Commit to getting involved, because the local church is crucial to your growth and experience of the abundant life Christ has in store for you!

“Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:25
Are you connected in a Bible study with others?
Life is not meant to be lived alone. In fact, God hates loneliness. You were created to experience life with other people, and that’s why at Willow Ridge, we encourage you to get into a family group.
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” Acts 2:42
Are you serving?
Most of us want to make a difference; we want to leave our footprint on the world. God has gifted each of us with a particular set of skills to do just that—through the local church.
As a Christ follower, one of the most powerful lessons you can put into action is serving in the church. When you volunteer your time and talent, you will discover the key to unlocking a life of influence and change.
