New To ANC
Wondering how to get started in the adventure of following Jesus?
We call these the "S's" of Spiritual Growth.
1. Say "Yes"
All spiritual growth starts with this simple word. When you can say, "YES...I believe there is a God, I believe Jesus died for me, I am a sinner, I need grace. "Your faith-filled "Yes" ignites a supernatural transformation of your life where God molds you into a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17).
Have you said "Yes?"

Water Baptism stands as a critical step of discipleship. It's when your private "Yes" becomes a public and visible "Yes." Splashing down into the baptismal water signifies your old life is buried. Coming up out of the water signifies your new, resurrected life in Jesus. (Colossians 2:12)

3. Small Groups
Small Groups (which we call "LifeGroups") mark the center of our spiritual growth strategy. These groups facilitate prayer, Bible study, accountability friendships, and pastoral care. Nowhere does spiritual growth happen faster than in a small group with other fervent believers. We believe people grow better in circles than in rows.

4. Sweet Spot
God created everyone with a "sweet spot," a service-oriented area hardwired in you for maximum joy and effectiveness. You'll discover your God-given sweet spot wherever your spiritual gifts, experiences, and passion intersect.

5. Shared Mission
We can do infinitely more together than we ever can do alone. Along your faith journey, God sends partners your way; people willing to join arms with you to share finances, time, and sweet spots. The result is a shared mission with big results. Spiritual growth requires leaving the anonymity of a church chair and partnering with other believers.
