May God bless you
and grant you incredible joy as
you follow Him!!
Following are some ideas
to help you grow as a Christian:
1) Reading the Bible will be
like food for your soul. Ask God
to help you understand what you read and how to apply it to your life. Start memorizing some of what you read. When you have a verse memorized, start thinking about what each word in that verse means. One good passage to start with is 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Bible-believing church that has people that will love you and help you grow in your faith. Let the church know you have received Jesus as your Savior and ask them to baptize you.

4) Talk to God like you would a friend knowing that he hears you.
He even hears your thoughts, so
You can talk to him wherever you are!! Tell him about the things you need help with and what you need. Share the great things that are happening and the hard things. Ask Him for help for your friends or family and ask Him to guide you and help you learn. Being a Christian is not a religion it is a
relationship with Jesus Christ!

5) Realize that there are trials
in life. Life won't always be easy, but God promises to never leave you or forsake you. Ask God to help you through difficult times.
6) Ask God to fill you with
His Holy Spirit. There is an initial
filling, but keep coming to God to be refilled. The disciples in the book of Acts were filled multiple times.
Here is a link with more information
on this topic:
7) When you accepted Jesus as your savior, your spirit was changed and made new. Learn about what God says about you now and who you
Who You are in Christ
8) Your spirit was instantly changed at salvation. Now you begin the process of sanctification, where Jesus is at work in your life giving you new desires and transforming how you think, feel, and act. Jesus will help you to do anything that He asks you to do. Following are some links

9) Share your faith and what you are learning with others. Jesus told us to "go and make disciples..." (Matt 28:19) Sharing with others is also a good way for what you are learning to grow deeper inside of you.
Here is a link to the page
"How Can I Be Saved", which would be a good page to share with others, as well as this page that you are on now. Who knows how many people will one day be in heaven because of your faithfulness to share your faith.
If you disciple 2 people and teach them to disciple 2 people who disciple 2 people, and it keeps going, after only 14 times 16,384 people have been reached.
(see picture below)
If you increase that to 3 people, after 14 levels 4,782, 969 people are discipled. (See picture below)
The results will be more or less depending on how many
catch the vision. I'm praying that many who visit this website will
catch the vision.

God Bless you!!
