KNOW is our fist step in our discipleship pathway and the place where we encourage everyone to begin life at Ridge Church. Our desire is for you to know Jesus, to follow him and do life with him.
Sunday Gatherings: This is the first step along the pathway and that is to gather together with the church family. It's where we learn scripture, worship together, pray for one another and learn how to follow Jesus together.
Basecamp (coming soon): In this step, you will learn the basics about Ridge Church; our story, what we believe, how and why we do the things we do and how to be more part of life at Ridge Church. This happens via video and takes less than an hour to complete.
In the GROW step, you start to do life together with others at Ridge Church. Growing is how we learn to follow Jesus and grow in our faith. Spiritual growth is best in the context of community with others, and so in this step, you begin to do more life with others at the Ridge.
Baptism: If you are a follower of Jesus and have yet to enter the waters of baptism, we encourage you to take that step. In baptism, you will experience new identity, new family, and the new mission that we have in Jesus. Baptisms can take place any Sunday you choose at Ridge Church, but we also do them at specific times of the year, such as Easter Sunday.
Community Groups: Groups are the way we gather during the week to be the people of Jesus in our communities. We eat together, pray for one another, and share life together. It is in these ordinary rhythms of life that we become more like Jesus. We have groups for women, men, couples, students and even elementary students. Life as a Christ follower is lived best in the form of community with others. We truly are better together.
Discipleship Courses: Throughout the year, we offer different courses & seminars on various topics ranging from spiritual formation, spiritual disciplines and other life specific topics.
Practicing The Way: Each year, throughout the year, we teach through several spiritual disciplines where we learn more in-depth how to be with Jesus, become more like Jesus and do what Jesus did. These teachings happen in the context of our weekly gathering at various times of the year.
In the GO step of the discipleship pathway, you begin to live out the ways of Jesus where you live, work and play as you follow Jesus.
Serve: As the people of Jesus, we believe we are called to serve one another and serve our community. Through sacrificial love to others we are actively participating in the Kingdom of God. There are many ways and places to serve others at Ridge Church.
Neighborhood Mission: Through one of our many partners in the city, you can serve others. You can mentor children, coach a local team, volunteer time at one our of schools, serve single, new and newly expectant parents or a host of other activities through one of our neighborhood partners.
Go Global: Through a partnering mission agency, you can go on one of our yearly mission trips to one of several countries to help serve in a variety of capacities.
