If you are new to faith (or new to Living Hope) you might be wondering, "What comes next, now that I'm trying to follow Jesus?" We're glad you asked! Here are some basic ways to move along on your faith journey:


Water baptism is an ancient conversion tradition. It's fun and meaningful. At Living Hope, as soon as you've decided to follow Jesus, we want to dunk you and then celebrate with you!


Your time at Living Hope will probably have an expiration date unless you are intentional about connection! Find a GrowthGroup that fits your style & schedule, and find friends to encourage you in your faith journey! 


Regularly attend Sunday services. "Corporate worship brings together God’s word, prayer, and fellowship, and so makes for the greatest means of God’s ongoing grace in the Christian life.... There’s an element of worship and Christianity that cannot be experienced in private worship or by watching worship.” (from the article "Five Benefits of Corporate Worship"). 


Jesus modeled a life of service and sacrifice for his followers. 1 Peter 4:10 says "you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms." What are your interests? What are you good at? There are infinite possibilities of how you can serve in our church and community. 


“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” - Luke 6:38

Radical generosity is a hallmark of Jesus' followers. Gifts to Living Hope are used to grow the Kingdom in Dixon and all around the world!
