Next Steps Opportunities

ResLife exists to win souls & make disciples


Every person who has made the decision to believe in Christ should be baptized as an act of obedience and a public declaration. Water baptism is a celebration of your decision to follow Jesus Christ and what He has done in changing your life. It’s an outward sign of an inward decision. If you have not been baptized since you believed take this next step in your Christian walk. Listen to this great message by Pastor Duane on Baptism

The next Baptism date is February 13, 2022. Online registration is open.

Faith Essentials

Saying “yes” to following Jesus is saying “yes” to a brand new journey. We want to help you start your journey with the Faith Essentials course. Faith Essentials is discipleship-focused and designed to help you lay a solid foundation.

Do you already have a solid foundation in your journey? Find out how you can use this as a tool to disciple others and help them grow.

Bible School: Leaders For Christ

Registration is open for Winter classes: Sundays, January 9 – March 27, 2022.

Whether you have known God for a few months or have been walking with Him for decades, these studies will help you become more effective in your ministry to those around you.

This is the Next Step in your spiritual journey to greater freedom in the area of finances. This six-week workshop is packed with powerful spiritual and practical truths with trained leaders as your guide. Spiritually, learn about your purpose and authority in the Kingdom and how to exercise your faith for finances.
