Being involved in a church body is an important step in your walk with Christ. Being a member of Antelope Springs allows you to be an integral part of the planning and future of God’s kingdom through our church. The process is straightforward and easy.
What Steps Do I Take?
Place Your Faith in Christ
Jesus is the Son of God. Christians believe that God became flesh and dwelt among humanity in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is God-in-the-flesh. His life and ministry demonstrated the power of love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness for humankind. His death and resurrection frees believers from the bondage of sin and blesses them with the gift of eternal life. Salvation means that God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is working in our lives to make us whole and strong in our relationship with God. It is the gift of God’s grace to sinful humanity that restores us to a right relationship with God.
Administered only after a person professes Jesus Christ as Lord, Baptism is a symbolic initiation into the Christian faith. Baptism by immersion in water represents our identification with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Baptism by immersion in water is not a requirement of salvation. It is, however, a requirement of church membership that brings believers into community with other followers of Christ.
To sign up for a membership class, please contact the church office or call 916-773-7727. Classes are held every other month. You will receive information about our church history, beliefs, mission and purposes, and more. This is also a great time of meeting others at the church and talking with the pastor. Please come at your earliest convenience and begin your journey from here to Him alongside this wonderful family of believers at Antelope Springs.
At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. As Jesus was coming up out of the water, He saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on Him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."
Mark 1:9-11 (NIV)
