Welcome to NEXT

Here at Freedom we believe that learning to follow Christ is a step-by-step, day-by-day journey that leads our lives being transformed by Christ. It’s intentional. It’s personal. It’s done in community with other believers. It’s amazing.

These are opportunities to do what’s next in community with others.

Do You Know God?
by Del Wells

This article helps you answer this vitally important question. It covers these key sections:

  • Signs you don’t know God very well

  • How to get to know God more

  • Practices that will help you know God better

  • Signs you do know God well

For more on this topic, listen to Pastor Del’s message “What’s Next? Know God.”

Do you know God? is the most important question you will ever have to answer. Your future life will be determined by whether or not you know God. Jesus is very clear on this point. “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” (John 17:3).
— Del Wells, Do You Know God
