Faith Steps

The Bible, God’s Word, lays out what God desires of us as humans – to have an intimate relationship with Him and to glorify Him. That requires taking certain steps through faith (Ps 37:23; Hebrews 11:6). What is below is not meant to be an exhaustive list of everything a Christian should do in faith to have an intimate relationship with God and glorify Him but to highlight major steps that every Christian needs to take in faith in order to move towards that end.
