Next Steps

We believe growing people change. Wherever you are in life, whatever is going on, you will always have a next step to take as you grow.


Here at Blackhawk, our mission is simple: Make Disciples. You may wonder what that looks like for you in a practical sense, so we put our mission into action in what we call “My Discipleship Journey.” My Discipleship Journey is a pathway for spiritual growth we use at Blackhawk to help people grow in their walk with Jesus.

As a member of Blackhawk, we want you to be involved in 3 specific areas of our church:

  1. We want you to come to know God more in a weekly worship service.
  2. We want you to find community in a weekly small group as you navigate life with others, guided by God’s Word.
  3. We want you to join God’s work to change the world through missions, evangelism, and volunteering.

Where are you on your Discipleship Journey? It’s time to take your next step!

Meet Jesus

God, the creator of the universe, has a plan for you and your life. He loves you and wants to help you because He made you—on purpose, with a purpose. He knows you need help. He knows you can’t do it on your own. That’s why He sent Jesus.


You don’t have to measure up to some impossible religious standard to know God—you can’t, only Jesus can. Having a personal relationship with Jesus brings meaning and purpose to all the struggles you’re facing. You don’t have to be good enough, clean up your act, or follow some super-spiritual checklist.


Get Baptized

Baptism is going public about your faith in Jesus and communicating to the world your heart-felt commitment to following Him. It's the next step after salvation.   Baptism doesn’t save a person; it’s a symbol and celebration of salvation (1 Peter 3:21). The power that brought Jesus back to life is the same power Jesus uses to change our lives – and that’s worth getting excited about! Completion of My Discipleship Journey 101 is required to be baptized.


Join a Group

We know it's important to be connected, but it's hard to build lasting friendships. What if taking one simple step changed everything?

At Blackhawk , we’re trying to make it easier for you to find people who share your interests. We know that when you get together with people and have fun, you’ll begin to grow into a strong community that serves and grows together. LIFE Groups are all about connecting in community, growing friendships, developing deeper relationships and walking humbly with our God.
