Jersey Baptist Church

Find a Better Tomorrow

What isTransformed?

Everyone is different...
Whether you grew up a Christian or never set foot in a Church, whether you are eighteen or eighty, whether you raise kids or you raise cattle…we all have questions about the essential areas of life: Spiritual, Physical, Mental, Emotional, Relational, Financial, and Vocational.

The world is shouting for our attention with answers to struggles we can have in each of these areas. We are not at a loss for potential solutions, but the world's promises can leave us feeling empty and searching for more. Have you ever wondered if God has a better way? Or if there are answers that really work?  God’s way is to transform our lives from the inside out.

Transformed is an area-wide, seven week series that will guide you in exploring what the Bible has to say about the essential areas of our lives listed above.

We would love to have you join us for this seven-week series!
