Next Steps

Move Forward in Your Faith

A Next Step is any step you take as you move forward in your faith in Jesus. We want to hear your story of how God has been working in your life. After one of the worship services, come and meet with one of our Decision Counselors or meet one of our staff members as you exit the worship service to ask any questions you may have about the Bible, baptism, and more.  If you like, you can even choose to begin by reaching out to us online.

Your Next Step Might Be:

  • Pray with someone 
  • Ask Christ to be your Lord and Savior 
  • Join our church as a member
Every next step is a big step in seeing every life changed by Jesus. We know that each next step is an important for everyone at PBC.

Next Steps: Become a church member...

1) Profession of Faith

It all begins with Christ. Your first step is to decide to accept the free gift and new life that Jesus offers. Learn More

2) Baptism

It's an act of obedience following the example of Jesus and symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to a new life in Christ Jesus.
