There is a SEVEN step process at First McNeil of how we intend to accomplish our mission
First McNeil’s “Next Steps” is our process.
NEXT STEP #1 – It is our goal that all who haven’t become followers of Jesus would do so and make a public profession of their faith in Christ.
NEXT STEP #2 - It is our goal that all who profess Christ in salvation would also follow Him in baptism as soon as possible.
NEXT STEP #3 – It is our goal that everyone who desires to unite with this church would do so by attending New Member Workshop Class.
NEXT STEP #4 - It is our goal that everyone feels welcome to attend the Sunday morning worship service where they will hear upbeat, worshipful songs and relevant biblical teaching.
NEXT STEP #5 - It is our goal that everyone would join a Bible study group where they can experience meaningful relationships with others and grow in a deeper relationship with Christ through studying the Scriptures together.
NEXT STEP #6 - It is our goal that every member has a place to serve others. We believe that every member in his or her place of ministry serving and caring for others is not only Biblical, it is essential to becoming Christ-like. Jesus said, “I came not to be served, but to serve,” Mark 10:45 and in Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
NEXT STEP #7 – It is our goal that every member continues in their own personal growth to maturity as they worship, grow and serve in order that they may be able to help others join the journey.
To be obedient followers that are making obedient followers of our Lord will require each of us to be faithful attenders of the Sunday morning WORSHIP time as well as faithful members of a small group where we can GROW through studying the Bible together and SERVE others both physically and spiritually as we “go and tell” and invite to “come and see” what the gospel message of Jesus Christ is all about.
OUR GOAL is to keep ministry really simple. We believe that if every Christian would be involved in these steps they would become mature Christians as Christ wants us to be. We indeed would be obedient followers of Jesus Christ developing others to become obedient followers of Christ.
