Where do I start?

The Indestructible Book DVD SetIf you are a new believer taking your first step or a new member looking for a place to start and get acquainted with others, Discovery is designed for you! Our goal is threefold:

1. to encourage you in your faith and maturity

Whether you're a non-Christian investigating the claims of Jesus Christ and Christianity, a young believer with a zillion questions, or a seasoned saint, our prayer and desire is that your relationship with Jesus Christ will grow and become more personal.

2. to instruct and discuss basic Bible truths to questions such as:

  • What's the Bible? How do I study God's Word?
  • Is it possible to have a personal relationship with God?
  • Who is Jesus Christ and what has He done for me?
  • How can I be guaranteed to have eternal life?
  • How can I be assured I am a Christian?
  • What's God like?
  • Who is the Holy Spirit?

3. to introduce you to others in the Church so you can benefit from Christian fellowship:

Our church is large enough that you can get lost in the crowd. We hope that this class will just begin the process of meeting and developing relationships with others here at Sierra Madre Congregational Church.

God bless you as you DISCOVER the joy of knowing God and identifying with His church.
