Jesus said He came to give abundant life for all Christ-followers. With energy and intention, LifePoint encourages and guides each person to take next steps on their Christ-centered Journey. We each have a unique journey, yet the Journey is similar through the common stages we each travel spiritually. Through God's Word, we see the Christ-centered Journey best defined by five characteristics found in the Bible and displayed by those who live a Christ-centered life.
We want to help encourage and disciple everyone to move closer to Jesus and make Him the center of everything.
People "exploring" Christianity are disconnected from God and have yet to begin a personal relationship with Jesus.
You have accepted Christ. You are brand new. We consider that an infant Christ-follower. Much like physical development, spiritual development begins with dependence upon other Christ-followers for growth and development in their "baby steps."
Beginning to take increasing steps specifically through the five characteristics of a Christ-centered life. Enthusiastic about their faith with many significant steps still to be made.
Moving into a God-first and others-first outlook. Beginning to make significant contributions to God's Kingdom and living for God's purpose.
Experiencing the joy of Christ by defining everything in their life by their position and purpose in Christ. They are reproducing their faith and life in other Christ-followers in the preceding stages.

We are God's creation and He alone deserves and demands our worship. This is best lived out through weekly worship gatherings and through individual, private worship by reading God's Word, prayer and other personal spiritual habits.
Because we are created for community, we gather all ages into small groups for relationships built around God's Word. In small groups, Christ-followers are engaged in discipleship, community and service.
We can't grow without serving and we cannot serve without growing. At LifePoint, we encourage each person to engage in two arenas of service: 1. Ministry inside the walls of the church and 2. Missions outside the walls of the church.
As Christ-followers, we each have the commission to influence our community and world as we "go" about our days sharing the love, justice and truth of God. This is lived out by modeling a Christ-centered life and sharing the Gospel with those in our circles of influence.
Generosity with our time and treasures is often the greatest barometer of our spiritual journey. At LifePoint, we have found the Biblical practice and mandate of tithing is the greatest step we can take in the characteristic of generosity.
