Step 1: Meet
Are you new to Knollwood? Come on out to Step 1! This is a great opportunity to come around some food to have conversations with some of our leaders, get to know them, ask any questions you may have, and hear a little bit about who we are. Again, there’s no obligation, we just want to get to know you and you to get to know us and feed you. Other ways of meeting with us are gathering on Sunday and staying for our after-service fellowship.
Step 2: Learn
We desire that every person who calls Knollwood their church home, and anyone thinking of making Knollwood their church home, would take this course. The point of this course is to share more about what we believe, who we are, and what church membership is. We do this by teaching a Membership Class that walks through what the Bible says about church membership, who we are and what we believe, and the process of becoming a member at Knollwood.
Step 3: Partner
We encourage everyone to partner with a local church. At Knollwood, we partner through church membership as a commitment we feel every Christian should make to attend, love, serve, and submit to a local church. Church membership is a partnership between the church and an individual.
Step 4: Connect and Serve
Once you have partnered with Knollwood, we have two smaller groups for those who would like to connect in a smaller group. We want to see people connect with and serve alongside fellow Christ-followers as we work together to grow in our love for God and others as disciples of Jesus Christ. We have two types of smaller groups to encourage each other to do this. For more information about our Discipleship Groups and our Community Groups.
We also ask that you find a place to use the gifts and talents God has given you to serve your church family. We have a number of areas, but if you can’t find one that works for you, please talk to us.
Baptism is not necessary for salvation. Baptism does not save from sin but from a bad conscience. In 1 Peter 3:21, Peter clearly taught that baptism was not a ceremonial act of physical purification, but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. Baptism is the symbol of what has already occurred in the heart and life of one who has trusted Christ as Savior (Romans 6:3-5; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12). Baptism is an important step of obedience that every Christian should take. Baptism cannot be a requirement for salvation. To make it such is an attack on the sufficiency of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. If you have anymore questions or are interested in taking this step, we have a two-week class walk through what the Bible says about baptism.
