WHAT IS YOUR NEXT STEP?
Trying to perfectly describe what a person needs to do to maintain a healthy relationship with another person is impossible, because every relationship is different. We acknowledge that God has created each person differently and therefore, there is no way to describe, in detail, exactly what a persons individual needs are on a piece of paper. With that said, we do believe that there are healthy practices that are true for all believers and vital to a healthy relationship and life focused on God.
We can split this into different areas of our lives. Our personal walk with God, and our walk alongside other believers, the church. These two sides are inseparable and naturally affect each other. Just coming to church each week and going through the motions, does not equate to a deep intimate relationship with God. Likewise someone who studies scripture without the accountability of others can easily develop a unbalanced system of beliefs or practices. With this said, here are the practices we feel are vital on both the personal life and church life of every person.
