On Your Marks... > Getting Started
Welcome to Believers on Track where we are making disciples of a track & field nation.
We truly believe you are here because the Lord has led you here and our prayer is that we can be the church community you are looking for.
10-Step Consolidation Process
To help you grow, we have established a 10-step consolidation process which seeks to support your growth in Christ from newly saved all the way through to a mature believer serving through your particular gift of grace.
"ON YOUR MARKS..."
It all starts with salvation.
STEP 1: NEW BELIEVER
If you have just received Jesus / led someone else to Christ, the first step after this is to visit our ‘New Believers’ page. On this page you can download the ‘Fundamentals’ book for free as a PDF (or purchase a paperback copy if you prefer) and watch the video sermons on that page. If you have led someone to Christ, we encourage you to go through the Fundamentals book with them.
Then you grow and mature.
STEP 3: JOIN THE CALL ROOM
We encourage believers to join The Call Room every month for our online gathering. Here, our founder, Torema Thompson, will teach the word of God and answer questions live. The Call Room is designed to equip you to run #ForAnEternalPrize in the very field God has called you to. No topic is off limits, the Lord wants access to our whole heart and life!
STEP 4: JOIN A FIELD GROUP
A field group is where you get to physically meet up with other believers on track in your area. These small groups take place once a week and are organised by field group leaders. To initially connect to a field group, you need to join the online forum on our website.
STEP 5: WATER BAPTISM
If you haven't done so already, your field group is where you will be baptised. Baptism is not something that only pastors and other fivefold leaders can conduct; in fact, baptisms are part of the great commission and any true believer in Jesus Christ, who has the Spirit of God, may baptise a true believer (Matthew 28:19-20). Why not make a whole party out of it?! Invite your friends and family to celebrate your public decision to follow Jesus. We have a ‘Guidance Booklet’ under our ‘Go!’ tab, to help field groups feel confident about conducting water baptisms.
STEP 7: CONSOLIDATION QUIZ
Once you're all settled in, it's time to take our Consolidation Quiz. This is, firstly, a personal assessment in order for you to assess your own growth and foundational development, and you may take the quiz as many times as necessary. Passing the Consolidation Quiz is also the minimum requirement if you desire to become a field group leader, this is to demonstrate that your faith / understanding is at a place of security and founded on truth, and to show that you understand God's vision & commission for Believers on Track. You will need 100% to pass the Consolidation Quiz and you will receive a certificate once passed. If you don't want to become a field group leader, that's fine, we still recommend taking the quiz.
STEP 2: SUBSCRIBE TO BELIEVERS ON TRACK
The second step in our consolidation process is to subscribe to the Believers on Track email list, Instagram and YouTube Channel so that you can catch up and keep up with what's happening amongst this body of believers. We have a number of resources on our website and channel, so this is a great place to start when trying to navigate this community.
STEP 6: HOLY GHOST BAPTISM
The Holy Ghost is the third person of the Godhead and is our promise from the Father (Acts 2:38-39). To truly live the life Christ died for us to live, we need the Holy Ghost. The baptism with the Holy Ghost is where we are filled with the love of God to the overflow (Romans 5:5) for the first time and receive power to be a witness (Acts 1:4-5, 8). This is something many Christians miss out on; however, the baptism with the Holy Ghost is available to all believers. You will see your life take on a new fire after you receive the Holy Ghost and that's what we desire for all believers on track!
Then you do the work of the ministry so that others might know Him too.
STEP 8: REACH OUT
Having found your footing, now is the perfect time to start the process for someone else! Share your faith as the Lord leads you, and if Believers on Track has been a blessing to you, why not invite someone else to join the community?
STEP 9: SERVE THE BODY
We all have a part to play in building up the Body of Christ in love. Obeying what the Lord is leading you to do is a key part of your continued growth and the growth of those around you.
Do you want to do more for the ministry? Has the Lord given you an idea to serve the Believers on Track Community? Do you desire to start a field group?
STEP 10: RUN 2 WIN CONFERENCE
Last but not least, we have our annual Run 2 Win Conference. This is where we come together from far and wide (in person!) to see the believer ignited, the lost saved, the sick healed and to watch the Lord move in signs, wonders and miraculous power! This will be a time of extended worship through song & dance, powerful preaching, testimonies and Holy Ghost fire! Come willing and come expectant!
