Connect

Making connections is vital to becoming a part of a faith family.  We encourage all people to connect in two ways.  First, the connection to God.  This is really the start of being a part of Buffat Heights faith family.  Apart from the salvation that only comes from Jesus, humans cannot connect to God.  Our sin separates us from God.  So, each person needs to come to Jesus Christ for His forgiveness and salvation so that we can be reconciled to God.  That is the first step in becoming a part of Buffat Heights faith family.

Every person  in the our church is encouraged to attend and participate in the weekly worship service.  This is the weekly connection that is important for spiritual growth.  Of course, we realize that there will be times when just cannot make it to worship.  But regularly participating in worship is encouraged.

The second way we encourage all people to connect is on a daily basis.  This daily connection is sometimes called a quiet time. No matter what you call it, making the time to spend with God the Father is essential to your daily life.  If you need some help with how to have your daily connection with God, please let us know.  We will do what we can to help.

Grow

This may sound silly, but growing spiritually does not happen automatically.  It is something that must be worked at.  Buffat Heights encourages all people to participate in a weekly Bible study.  This can happen on Sunday mornings, evenings, or some other time during the week.  Make this a priority each week.

Growth doesn’t only happen in a Bible study, though.  Your daily time with God should be an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to teach you from God’s Word.  Each day, open your Bible and read.  Pray for insight before you read, and read in a logical manner so that what you read each day will build on the previous day’s reading.  Before long, you will find that God is growing you each day.

Engage

Engage your world!  This is the part of the Christian life that is for all to see.  This is how you put into practice all that you learned in your Bible studies and quiettimes, and worship services.

All people who attend Buffat Heights are encouraged to engage their world each week.  This may mean that you are involved in a regular activity of service, like working in our children’s ministry, on the maintenance crew, part of the Wednesday night supper crew, or any other of the many opportunities to serve in our church.  However, there are plenty of ways to engage your world outside of the church.

You might help a neighbor or volunteer at a ministry center around the city.  There are many ways to do it, but since you have the love and message of Jesus Christ to share, then the only thing you can do is to engage your world!
