• Next Steps

  • Community

    Community is a group of people leading a common life according to a standard.

    We were not created to live in isolation. We need community because God designed us that way. We want to help you find a group of people who will encourage, challenge, care, love, teach, and help you grow. Community Life Groups (CLGs) are the way we help you connect with others like you. CLGs meet weekly in locations throughout the city on different days and times.

  • Baptism

    When we trust Jesus to save us, we are justified. Baptism is a symbol of that justification.

    When you step into the water, you are letting the world know that you have walked into a new life of faith in Jesus Christ and that you are committing to follow Him down a new path. If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, baptism is the next step in your spiritual journey.


  • Membership

    At PaulAnn, we desire your membership statement to be far more than expression of where you attend church. It is intended to be a mutual commitment of belonging, investment and care. We desire your membership to reflect a heart shift from “I attend here” to “this is my family.”

    How to Join:

    • By salvation or baptism: Accepting the salvation offered through Jesus Christ and following in baptism.
    • Statement of faith: Stating that you were saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and have been biblically baptized by immersion after you were saved.
    • Transfer of letter: Moving your membership from another Baptist church.


  • Serve

    God has gifted each of us with a particular set of skills to serve the local church. Using your gifts by serving in the church is an act of worship. Jesus Himself said that He did not come to be served, but to serve others.

    There are many opportunities to serve at PaulAnn and we can always use new volunteers.

    To view volunteer opportunities, visit the Volunteer Page. This is a great tool to help you take your next step!

  • Giving

    What we do with our money tells others who were are and what we do. When we tithe, we acknowledge the fact that God is in control of our lives.

    Three Types of Scriptural Giving:

    • Tithing: Bringing 10% of our income to the local church.
    • Generous Giving: Giving above and beyond the 10% is considered generous and more than expected.
    • Sacrificial Giving: Giving above and beyond the 10% by sacrificing ourselves to use our resources to further the mission of the movement of God.
  • Missions

    God desires for people from every tribe, tongue, and nation to be redeemed to Himself. God has been moving from the be inning of time to make His name known among the nations and has used the global church to evangelize the world.

    The Bible says:

    Everyone who calls on the name of the lord will be saved. But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? – Romans 10:13-15
    PaulAnn is actively going, telling, and sending. We have missionaries in various countries throughout the world and send short-term teams to strategic locations in obedience to God’s call.
  • Bible Study

    But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of Godmay be thoroughly equipped for every good work. – 1 Timothy 3:14-17

    This Scripture calls us to heed God’s Word. God expects us to scrutinize, understand, and then apply the Bible to our lives. This is the basic inductive precept. This passage is not an instruction to the Bible the occasional “once over.” It is the clear, uncompromising call to continue in our studies constantly and passionately.

    PaulAnn offers a variety of Bible Studies for men and women throughout the year.
