Exploring

I believe in God but I’m not sure about Jesus. I am exploring what it means to know God, and exploring the Christian faith.

If this is you, you may wonder where you fit in at RockPointe Church and what your next step is. As a person exploring what faith is, you may be wrestling with questions such as:

  • Who is God?
  • What is Christianity all about?
  • Who is Jesus?
  • What do I want for my spiritual life?
  • What advantages are there for me when I grow spiritually?
  • What will give me peace and fulfillment in this life?

Here are some things that you can do to move forward in your journey:

 

Engage your Mind

Read and explore the Bible.

  • Start by taking an NLT Bible from RockPointe home with you, or download the YouVersion Bible App on your computer or mobile device. Find the Book of Mark, and read a chapter a day.

Read Christian books that talk about developing a relationship with God like:

  • “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren
  • “The Good Life” by Chuck Colson

Watch RockPointe sermons online on Vimeo.com

  • This is a great way to receive teaching, as well as to get to know your Pastors!

 

Engage your Heart

Pray

  • Prayer is simply talking to God.You can pray out loud, silently, or by journaling.
  • If you are unsure about what you believe, tell that to God.
  • Take two minutes every morning to pray for the next week

Reflect on Scripture

  • This is a bit different than reading scripture. Reading through scripture is a great way to understand the big picture... reflecting on scripture is a great way to think on a small portion, pray about it, and then apply it to your life.

 

Engage your Hands and Feet

Come to weekend services at RockPointe

  • This is a great way to learn more about God receive teaching and meet others.

Take a class

  • RockPointe offers the Alpha course several times each year. This is a great first step in meeting with others who are also exploring faith and getting to know what the Bible has to say about Jesus, God and how to live a life of faith.
  • This is a no pressure class that has been developed to teach the core principles of the Christian faith, but also be a safe place to ask all those questions you likely have!
  • Check out the Alpha page for details, times, and locations for current and upcoming Alpha courses.

Join a Small Group

Small Groups exist for 3 things: To connect with others, to reach out to others and to grow spiritually with others! go online to our Small Groups page, and get connected!

Volunteer

  • Volunteering is a great way to really get into the community of RockPointe Church.
  • There are plenty of opportunities, just click the “Serve” tab to see where you can get involved.

God, I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don’t please you. I have lived my life for myself. I am sorry and I repent of these things, desiring to change my ways and live for you. I ask you to forgive me. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for me, to save me. He did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you to take control of my life, I give it to you. Help me to live every day in a way that pleases you. I love you, God, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you. Amen.
