Intimacy with Jesus

Where you Focus, You Follow

Colossians 3:1

Living as Those Made Alive in Christ

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.


  • Believe (Relationship begins)

  • Repent (Turn to follow)

  • Be Baptized (Out ward expression)

  • Filled with the Spirit (The daily walk).
