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 it
memorized, start thinking about what
each word in that verse means.
One good passage to start with is
1 Corinthians 13:4-8

2) Ask God to lead you to a 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.
3) 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!
4) 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.
5) 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.

6) When you accepted Jesus as your savior,
your spirit was changed and made new. Learn about what God says about you now.
Who You are in Christ

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
