Thank you for considering taking a step of faith!
We have a passion for helping people find and follow Jesus Seven days a week. For so many people, though, finding Jesus is not the hard part. It’s the consistently following part that can get challenging. Growing in faith as a Christian does not happen without a plan. No Christian stumbles into a growing faith in Jesus. Rather, it takes an intentional process and time to grow, step by step, into the person God created you to be.
“Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
2 Peter 3:18
Our intentional plan to help you grow in faith is called Seven Steps. It will help you gain the knowledge and tools necessary to ignite your growth and to be ready for whatever God has for you in the future. The steps are truthful, helpful, enjoyable, and practical in your daily life and they will help increase your spiritual growth exponentially!
Our team is here to serve. Please don’t hesitate to ask if we can help you in any way.
– Dr. Jeremy McGarity, Lead Pastor

For those of you who have completed Step One: Membership, you’ll have an opportunity to learn more about developing Christian habits!
(Note: This class is only available to those who have completed Membership.) In this two week class, the foundational habits of being a Christian are taught. You will learn the foundational Christian habits of having a regular devotional time, how to develop the habit of prayer, giving, and the importance of practicing the habit of fellowship. Learn about these Christian habits and how to incorporate them into your daily and weekly life.
Developing the Gifts God Gave You
From the day you were born, God has shaped you for a place in His kingdom. You have a unique heart, aptitude, passion, experience, and set of gifts that equips you to impact the world for His glory. You will learn and understand what those gifts and abilities are, and how you can use them in your life, the Church, and beyond.
Reaching Out to Your Oikos
You will gain an understanding of the New Testament Oikos (pronounced oy koss) concept and how your God-given mission flows out of your everyday life.
Remember, it is not about changing the world, but instead it’s about changing your world. Our Church is built on this biblical concept.
This course is a total of four classes, one class a week for four weeks.
The importance of essential Christian doctrine cannot be overstated. These are the very doctrines that distinguish Christianity from the many cults that exist. These essential doctrines are the North Star by which the course of Christianity is set. Just as the North Star has safely guided sailors and their ships over the years, essential Christian doctrine safely guides the Church through the doctrinal storms that have tried to sink it over centuries.
Step 6 : Overcoming the Weaknesses that Bite
“We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.”
In these sessions you will be given the tools to overcome the most common weaknesses we face as human beings.
Every Christian faces the sharks of life. They are swimming around us, waiting to bite. Being a believer does not exempt us from trials, tribulations, and troubles. However, we have been given the tools to fight back. Although we may be bitten from time to time, we don’t have to be devoured. .
Step 7: Apologetics
In this course, you will learn the basic defenses of the
Christian faith. While you’ve learned the key Christian Doctrines in Step 5, this step will give you some of the tools to help you defend those doctrines.
