About LifePointe Church:

LifePointe is a non-denominational Christian church whose mission is pointing people to life in Jesus. Our hope is that everyone would experience life to the fullest, which is only found in Jesus. 

Our Mission:

Introduce people to Jesus – We want everyone to meet Jesus. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life and without Him, nothing else really matters. We are willing to be vulnerable with our story and meet others where they are in order to tell of the reason for our hope.

Grow in our relationship with God – We are each responsible for our spiritual growth in order to grow in our relationship with God. Turning to the Bible as authority for truth, we don’t seek spiritual knowledge for its own sake but for the heart and life transformation God provides when we respond to His desire to change us. We are willing to abandon everything that takes our focus off of Jesus so that our faith grows strong. A vibrant faith creates a desire to live more like Him.

Connect with others – We find encouragement and accountability through genuine friendships, requiring us to be truthful about our doubts, struggles and hurts. Fun and enjoyable moments, as we are building our faith, are also a rewarding part of the Christian life. Overall, we want unity, authenticity, kindness, gentleness, and love to permeate all that we do so we disagree graciously, forgive quickly and resist divisiveness. We remember the one shared reason we gather together: Jesus.

Serve others – When we serve, we live a life dedicated to putting others ahead of ourselves. We are generous with our time, talents and treasures and are ready to say “Yes” to whatever God asks of us. We serve with a glad heart and spirit of excellence to build up the body of Christ.
