NEXT STEPS

If simply going to church is your plan, you are missing out on the best that the church has to offer. Whatever season of life that you're in, you will always have a next step to take as you grow as a disciple. We want to help! At Crestview we've designed our ministry to be intentional because spiritual growth and discipleship doesn't happen by accident. Just like any other relationship, we need to invest time and effort into getting to know who God is and what He wants for us. Use this guide to help you discover your Next Step.


STARTING POINT

Starting Point is offered quarterly and will give you a sneak peek into the basic beliefs and practices of Crestview, equip you with the essentials of the Christian faith, and show you opportunities where you can get involved. This is your first step in getting connected with Crestview and a prerequisite to becoming a member. (Discover)

BAPTISM

If you've made a commitment to Christ your Lord and Savior, it's time to take the next step and make your decision known. Baptism is the best way to express your faith and reflect your life change.

BE BAPTIZED

GROWTH TRACK

Growth Track isn’t just about knowledge... it's biblical and practical teaching in an interactive classroom setting. Our goal is for you to apply what you know in your life and leadership. When you’re able to discuss what you’re learning, wrestle with tensions, and ask questions, you end up owning that information. When you own information, you’re more likely to apply it. And when you apply it, you grow and change. Frequently throughout the year we will offer classes that will meet for 3-6 weeks. (Develop)

SERVE

Serving others is one of the most effective ways to live out your faith. In a world focused on personal gain, there is perhaps no greater way to show others what a life devoted to Christ is about. Step forward in faith and experience first-hand the impact our volunteer teams have being the hands and feet of Jesus. (Develop)

LIFE GROUPS

Life was not meant to be lived alone. At Crestview, life groups are vital to our church. They provide connection and security as we all tackle life together. Our life groups meet on a weekly basis all around our community. (Develop)

DAILY TIME

You don’t truly get to know someone unless you regularly spend time with them, the same applies to our relationship with the Father. Begin a daily time with God through reading the Bible and prayer. Get a start using the 31 Day Reading Plan on the LIfe of Jesus. (Develop)

31 DAY READING PLAN


SHARE

As Christians, we are called to share our story so that others might know the saving grace of Christ. We each have a story and we want you to tell others how God has changed your life. Your story just might be the catalyst that will lead someone else to Christ. (Deploy)

SHARE YOUR STORY


GIVE

For Christians, tithing (a word meaning ‘tenth’) is the starting point. Tithing is giving the first 10% of our income back to the local church. If you call Crestview your home, we encourage you to give generously, knowing that your money is being used to support the mission of Jesus Christ – both here in Manhattan, and around the world.
