GROW

"Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God"

~Hebrews 6:1 (NIV)

Read the Word

The Bible is essential for knowing God and His will for our lives. The book of Romans tells us there are certain things we can know about God from general revelation. Without Scripture people can know about God’s power and divine nature by examining creation (Romans 1:20). They also know God’s law because it is written on their hearts (Romans 2:14–15) but they cannot know God's will nor his person.

There are many translations and numerous places to start. While there is no perfect translation, we recommend you choose a Bible that is easy for you to understand and is faithful to the original text of the Bible. To sample some of today’s popular translations, you can go to websites such as BibleGateway.com or YouVersion.com. Here are some printable bookmarks that include daily scripture to get you started (adapted by Weatherstonechurch.org)

Connect

God intended His followers to be in connection with other Christians. Even Jesus invested much of His ministry with 12 disciples as His closest friends. The New Testament has over 50 “one another” verses that refer to loving one another, serving one another, encouraging one another, and praying for one another. Each of these verses encourage relationships with other Christians. Fellowship with other believers is one of the purposes of OCC. If you need help finding which one would be best suited for you, please call the church at 715-294-4332 or email occ.connectoffice@gmail.com.
