1. You have to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Baptism is the means by which a person makes a public profession of faith and discipleship to Jesus Christ.

Newcomers Orientation - SEE MORE DETAILS BELOW!
A “disciple of Christ” is someone who has been called first to know Christ, then to follow Him. To “know” Christ means we are becoming like him —
thinking, feeling, and living as He commands.
We get to know Christ primarily in four ways:
1. Become a member of His church
2. Studying His word — the Bible
3. Consistent connection with other believers
4. Serving others
Here is a good first step ...
NEWCOMERS ORIENTATION! — We offer two (2) - 120-minute group sessions (2 hours each class), that explain who we are and what we believe.
The orientaiton sessions are offered three (3) times during the year; in the fall, winter, and spring. The class meets on Sundays following worship (from 12 Noon until 2:00pm).
This is a great opportunity to learn about Pathways and meet others, in a friendly atmosphere who are interested too!

Why join a church?
The Bible say that when you belong to Christ you are no longer “strangers” you are part of God’s family; a community.
The church is where you learn to “be more like Jesus,” but it’s a lifelong process.
What does it mean to “be like Jesus”?
This means that our actions, attitudes, our thoughts, our character, our minds are like His.
How do know it’s working?
The Bible quantifies this goal as: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control
increasing in our lives and interactions with others.
What if I believe Jesus Christ was a great person and teacher; does that make me a disciple?
Considering Jesus Christ merely on the basis of an exemplary life and His superior moral teaching is not enough.
The real test of what one thinks of Him must revolve around who He claimed to be and what He accomplished during His brief time for on earth.
