Tips for new Christians
1. Read the Bible daily
The Bible will help us to learn more about God and gives us practical advice and how we should live. A good place to start is the Gospel of Luke that is found in the New Testament. This book will give you information on the life of Jesus Christ and you will be able to read about His miracles and teachings to His followers. On our Bible reading page you can find a number of two week plans to get you started - click here.
2. Start to pray
Prayer is simply communicating with God. As you pray tell God your needs and pray that He will bless others too. Before long you will see the difference prayer makes in your life and in the lives of those around you. Remember to keep it simple - just like you are talking to a friend. As you pray remember to be open to God so He can speak to you or prompt you to do something. Like all good communication, prayer is a two way thing.
3. Meet with other Christians
God set up church so we could have be a part of a caring community, to have a support network and so we can learn more about Him. You can also learn more about the Bible, prayer, baptism, serving God and living in community. You can find a list of church denominations below. This has links to their websites.
4. Do a discipleship course
Doing a discipleship course will help you to set a solid foundation for your new life in Christ. We have a free booklet you can download here. The booklet has 10 short studies on the Bible, prayer, church, serving God, sharing your faith and being assured of your salvation. It includes a number of Scriptures on each topic, some reflection questions, a simple prayer and some Bible memory verses.
5. Tell others about your new faith
Sharing your faith can be fun and rewarding. You might like to start by telling people close to you that you have accepted Jesus into your life. Telling others about your faith and decision to follow Jesus can will allow them to follow Him too. If you need some tips to help you share your faith you can visit our "evangelism tips" page.
