RENEW UP. RENEW ACROSS. RENEW OUT.
WHY GO DEEPER?
We believe discipleship is a process of renewal that goes UP, ACROSS and OUT. We’re renewed in our relationship with God (UP), with each other (ACROSS) and with the world (OUT).
UP: We are made new in our relationship to God. We were once his enemies, in rebellion against Him, but now through the Gospel, we are adopted as children of God.
ACROSS: As God reconciles us to himself, he also reconciles us to our neighbor. We, who were once estranged, separated by ethnicity, age, socio-economics, and more, become a new FAMILY through the Gospel.
OUT: We were once OF the world, but through the Gospel, we are set apart and sent back TO the world, this time as missionaries who bring renewal to the people around us.
TAKE THE FIRST STEP TO GO DEEPER
What about baptism and membership?
Membership: We consider membership a part of our Up, Across and Out discipleship pathway. Membership is not merely a roster of names, but a people vitally connected and involved in a spiritual family (church), serving one another and encouraging one another to grow in their walk with Jesus. Membership at Renew happens when someone has been baptized and completes the following Life class: Life with God, Life in the Spirit, Life of Freedom and Life at Renew.
Baptism: Baptism is an important step in a person's journey of following Jesus. We’d love to celebrate that milestone with you.
