Welcome New Believers
You’ve just made the best decision of your life by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior—but what’s next!? How do you walk out your faith? Pastors Dennis and Colleen Rouse introduce this New Believers series, developed just for you, to help you move from simply believing to becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ.
NEW BELIEVERS GUIDE:
As a new believer, what’s next? Being a Christian is bigger than praying and asking God into your heart. Discover what your next steps should be through seven days of encouragement in New Believers, a guide that will walk you through how to move from just believing in Jesus to becoming His disciple.
As new believers, it’s important to know that as we stay close to Jesus, He will lead us in the ways that we should go. It’s in this closeness that transformation takes place. Let’s talk about it…
Talking to God
What makes a relationship “work”? Communication. As with anyone, we build a strong relationship with God by communicating with Him. Let’s take a look at how to position our hearts to talk to Him with expectancy, knowing He hears us.
Listening to God
Lord, not my will, but Yours be done! Did you know the Bible is God’s will to His people? He has spoken yet speaks still! Let’s learn more about how to hear Him through His Word and listen for His voice in our lives.
We were made to connect with other people. Though many of us “connect” with others online, it is necessary to be in the building. Don’t miss the beauty of gathering with other believers and serving in church. Let’s discuss it!
It is not good for us to be alone—let’s get together! On the journey of following Jesus, we need others to help us along the path more intimately. Are you a part of a small group?
Sharing God With Others
If He did it for you, He can do it for them! Be a witness—be bold and talk about what Jesus has done in your life, so others may “taste and see that the Lord is good”! Let’s dive into the importance of sharing God with others.

Membership is the starting point to understanding the values and vision of our church. We’ll share our story with you—why we do what we do and where we are going. Visit victoryatl.com/membership to register for our next class.
We all need community. Small groups can help cultivate some of the most important friendships in your life. We have small groups located throughout the metro-Atlanta area. We also have “10” Discipleship Groups that will be ongoing throughout the year and will be filled solely with new believers and those new to Victory. These groups will meet both online and on campus. The topic of study will be the “10” book by our pastor, Dennis Rouse, so that group members can keep the conversation going and learn more about the heart of Victory. Find a small group at victoryatl.com/smallgroups.
We are following the example of Jesus when we serve. There are many opportunities to serve and use your God-given gifts and talents at Victory. Find opportunities and sign up at victoryatl.com/serve.
