What's next?

When it comes to church, Jesus, anything really...

Some of us are comfortable with taking the first step, but in something so life changing as making a decision for Jesus, we are left wondering "what's next?". Where do I go from here.

It's important to know how to at least walk through this journey, what are the major points? 

When it comes to your relationship with Jesus, and with what's next, think of it more like a canoe trip than a train station.  There will be places that you want to stop and look around at, but don't feel like there is a certain amount of time that you need to be there and that you need to hurry up and move to the next stop.

This is your journey. This is what's NEXT.

Water Baptism


Water Baptism is simply an outward expression of a life change that has already happened on the inside.  It's a way to publicly tell the world that you have decided to follow Jesus.  That's why we encourage it, and why it's celebrated!

For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.  - Colossians 2:12



HEARTBEAT is a 4 week engagement where you get to learn everything about the way we do things here at THEHEART, what we believe, what we value.  After the 4 weeks, we hope to have answered all your questions about our church, and find a place for you to be a part of what God is doing here in San Marcos.

You will learn our philosophy on ministry, who we believe a Sunday Morning is for, as well as what we believe the essentials are to a relationship wth Jesus.  

We will meet for 4 weeks right after the Sunday Experience (11:30am) with a meal provided on the first week!


connect group


Everything we do points to CONNECT Groups. We believe that Sundays are great! but real life happens throughout the rest of the week.  That's when we need each other, that's where connection really happens.  

Our Groups meet throughout the week.  So whatever night works for you, you can be sure that you aren't missing a thing! All of our groups go over the same discussion questions, which are based on what the message was from the previous Sunday.


giving to the church


Other than sex, Money might be the most provocative topic in the Church.  If God loves you and wants to save you, why is your money involved? Great question! 

We give because it reminds us that God is our provide, not our money. It also allows us to fund the mission and vision of the local church and spread the message of the Gospel in very effective ways!

The Bible reading plan below through YouVersion® will help you to see, through the scriptures, why we give. 


Be a Part [SERVE]


Nothing we do at THEHEART would be possible without all of our amazing volunteers that choose to serve a vision that connects people to THEHEART of God.  

Just like giving, baptism, and everything else in our relationship with God, Serving is a choice.  It can help you meet people, change your perspective, all while advancing the message of Jesus in the process!

We serve because Jesus served.

What about the bible?

The Bible can be overwhelming. Where do you start? What should you read first? What if something doesn't make sense? It's important to know what the Bible is before we can hope to digest any of it! The next time you visit THEHEART, please feel free to grab one of the free bibles we have there which has a great plan of how to read it. But... while you're here, The Bible Project is a great resources for understanding so much about the Bible.
