We are so excited that you made a decision to follow Christ and we are here to walk this journey with you. Saying yes to follow God is the most important decision anyone can make, and we want to partner with you to help you have a strong, fruitful walk with Christ, and take your relationship with God to the Next Level.
Accepting Christ is only the first step on this journey. After you take that first step, it is very important that you continue to seek out Christ and continue to draw closer to Him. We would encourage you to first start setting aside time regularly to read the Bible and pray. We would highly encourage you to do this daily, but it will look different for everyone your schedule. Growth in any relationship always comes from investing time with them, and by praying and reading your Bible, you are investing in your relationship with God.
If you do not own a Bible or have no way to get your hands on one, don’t worry, there are several free online resources at your disposal. There is a free Bible app from where you can begin to read God’s Word. www.youversion.com Simply search “Bible” or “YouVersion” in your app store to find it. This amazing app also has thousands of devotional plans to help you figure out exactly what parts of the Bible to read every day and will track your progress and send you reminders throughout the day. We provide a devotional Monday - Friday each week in our church Discord server for you to use during your daily reading time. There are also websites that provide free online, interactive versions of the Bible. If you’re just starting out we recommend using the New International Version (NIV). www.bible.com
A great book to start off reading is the Book of Matthew in the New Testament.
In addition to reading your Bible, make sure to set aside time to pray. Prayer is such an integral part of your continued relationship with God. Again, this time will look different for everyone. This should be a time of your day where you can be alone with God for a few minutes. Spend time talking to God, asking Him for guidance, wisdom, strength, and direction. Bring to Him the things that are on your mind and heart. A relationship is built on open, honest communication and your relationship with God is no different. Also take time during your prayer to clear your mind and listen for God to respond. Give Him room to guide your heart and mind and provide the answers you are looking for. Lastly, begin to practice a heart of gratitude and thank God for the many blessings He has given us!
We believe that it is a key part of every believer’s life to attend church service. Church is meant to be so much more than a service, rather a community of people learning to love God, love one another and change the world together. We have our services every Saturday at 1pm EST and 7pm ET at www.twitch.tv/godsquadchurch. You can also catch the service after it has ended on Twitch or watch the sermon on YouTube later in the week on our church YouTube channel here www.youtube.com/GodSquadChurch.
We encourage all believers to seek out Water Baptism. This is an amazing way to publicly declare your faith and to symbolically start a fresh walk with Christ. To seek out more information on what exactly water baptism is or to sign up to be baptized, please fill out the form on our website.

Another key step in this process is getting plugged in at church. Here at GodSquad Church, we have a number of ways you can do that.
