We would love to help you take your next step on your faith journey.
- God's design for creation was for it to be a perfect place of fellowship between God and man. Sin corrupted this design and caused separation and enmity between God and man. Because of sin, the world was cursed with grief, sorrow, pain, and death. In His love, God sent Jesus to atone for sin, defeat death, and restore relationship with God. You can connect with God’s original design for you by saying Yes to Jesus by placing your faith and trust in Him.
- You can receive Jesus Christ through faith. People often think that through their efforts they can overcome the sin barrier between themselves and God. This is not true! There’s nothing you can do to restore the broken relationship with God. You can’t earn God’s salvation. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Romans 4:4-5)
- Through prayer you can trust in Jesus Christ. Through prayer, you declare that you are relying on Jesus Christ as your Savior. There are no “magical” words that result in salvation. It is only faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection that can save you. If you understand that you are a sinner and in need of salvation through Jesus Christ, you can pray something like this: “God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided by for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Him alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!”
Baptism is the next step for every new believer in Christ.
Baptism does not save but is a picture of the work that Jesus has done in a person’s heart. Baptism illustrates that we identify with the finished work of Jesus Christ. 1st Corinthians 15:3-4 says, “For I passed on to you as most important what I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”
Baptism illustrates Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection and shows that we have a new life in Jesus Christ. We are saved by Jesus Christ — not baptism. Additionally, we follow Jesus’ example in baptism. You can read about His baptism in Mark 1:9. He also commanded that all believers to be baptized in Matthew 28:19-20.
At SweetWater Church, we baptize by immersion because the New Testament word for baptize means “to dip under” or “to immerse” in water. This is the method of baptism throughout the New Testament.
Are you ready to be baptized? If you’re a believer, you should be baptized! In fact, Jesus said, "if you love me, you will obey my commands" (John 14:15). So, don’t delay. Your next step in your faith journey is baptism. Click the button below to fill out a form to schedule your baptism!
We believe that life change happens best in circles, not rows. That’s why we encourage every person to do life together with other believers in small groups. These groups most often meet in homes, but they can happen in a lot of different places — coffee shops, offices, even around a picnic table. Getting together in a circle is different from sitting in a church with rows.
- In a circle, you look someone in the face.
- In a circle, there’s dialogue and conversation.
- In a circle, we’re more free to engage in meaningful conversations.
These are critical elements of the kinds of relationships that bring life change.
We believe we are called to share the love of Christ through serving at church, in our community, and around the world. Our primary mission is making disciples by helping others discover the grace of God through knowing Christ and joining His mission.
We’re new so there are plenty of ways you can you can serve at SweetWater Church:
- Music Ministry — Do you sing and/or play a musical instrument?
- Set Up and Take Down — We set up for Sundays beginning at 8:00 am on Sundays, and we take it all back down after the service. Everything goes back into our trailer.
- Hospitality — greeting people, helping people find their way around, making sure they get to know other people
- Technology — Do you have experience with audio/visual equipment?
- Children’s Ministry — As we grow and God sends more children, we will need people who are willing to teach preschool, elementary students, and middle school students during the pastor’s message. Are you willing to share with this important responsibility?
- Community Service Projects — Just like it sounds!
- Is there another way you think you could serve at SweetWater Church?
