salvation

More about jesus:

The Gospel is the "Good News" of Jesus Christ. This good news has implications for our daily lives. (If you click on the heading to this section or the image above, you will be taken to videos that will help you to understand the Gospel in a greater way.) John 3:16 tells us, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Our desire is for you to place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. In order to do this, we are called to: 


1 . Repent

Acts 3:19

Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.


2 Corinthians 7:10

For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death.


2. Confess

1 John 1:9

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.


3. Believe

Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.


4. Receive

Revelation 3:20

Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.



Father in Heaven, thank you for being so loving and sending your son Jesus to die on the cross for my sin. I believe Jesus paid the price for my sins and that he is Lord. I believe that you raised Him from the dead, defeating sin and death and offering me life more abundantly.  Forgive me of my sins, forgive me of everything I have done. Help me to live my life for You, make me new. In Jesus' name, Amen.

baptism

The Bible has a lot to say concerning the symbolic practice called baptism. It is one of the two ordinances that God has given His church (the other being communion). We hope the following information will help bring some clarity on a few common questions relating to baptism.


What is baptism?

Baptism is a public celebration and testimony of faith in Jesus. 


Who should be baptized?

The Bible teaches that baptism is a symbol and that a person should be baptized to publicly declare their relationship with God through the person of Christ. Baptism symbolizes life before Christ, burial with Christ in His death, and being raised, as He was raised, to new life! We believe that when a person has surrendered their life to Christ, they should be baptized to communicate that to the world.

Membership

Before you call a church your “home,” we believe there are some questions you deserve to have answered. This is why we have created Trailhead as an easy next step for you to take if you desire to become a member of Three Trails. 


Trailhead is a tour of life and membership here at Three Trails. In it, we cover what we believe, our mission and vision, as well as expectations of our members. Simply coming to Trailhead does not make you a member. On the contrary, at the end of Trailhead, we ask those in attendance to make a covenant commitment to the mission and vision and to other members. We, in turn, make a covenant to shepherd and care for you.


Our next Trailhead will be June 12 following the service!
