You have decided to follow Jesus. What’s next?

Welcome to your journey of faith! We are so excited that you have decided to follow Jesus. You may be wondering, what should I do now? 

Reading the Bible, getting baptized, and joining in community are helpful first next steps. Linked below is all the information you need to get started. 

We are here to help you take your next steps with Jesus. We’re so glad you are here!

Attend Welcome to Willow

Welcome to Willow is for anyone who wants to learn more about who we are as a church family and how to get connected. If you are new to Willow, or maybe you have been attending for a while but are not connected in community, you don’t want to miss this experience.

Get Baptized

Baptism is an opportunity to share with your community about the decision you’ve made to place your faith in Jesus. Our hope for you is that once you’ve understood what it means to be a Jesus follower, that you can follow that up with the personal decision of Baptism.
