 Gather with a sense of urgency

Andrew first went to find his brother Simon – John 1:41
Phillip found Nathanael – John 1:45
JTB sent his disciples to Jesus – John 1:36-37
The Samaritan woman – John 4:28-30

Let me says this. Old relationships must change, as in don’t keep doing drugs, getting drunk, having illicit sex, etc. The relationships that must end are the ones you can’t change. If you cut off all your old friendships you’ll have no one to reach for Jesus. Your friends from before you knew Jesus are THE first people to invite to your baptism!

If you are a Christian who has never been baptized, text “baptism” to 205-476-2911. We will send you the info you need to help you understand and decide.

– Who is in church this morning because of you?

– Who was in a small group last semester because of you?

– Who will be in church next week because of you?

– Who will be in a small group this semester because of you?

If it is important to you, you’ll find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.

If you want to be saved and become a follower of Jesus it’s very simple. Jesus has already done the hard work by dying for our sins. All we have to do is believe Jesus is exactly who He says He is, the Son of God who died for our sins and rose again on the 3rd day. And tell someone. You can tell a spouse, parent, best friend, or you can text us at 205-476-2911.
