Reasons to Believe

Reasons to Believe

Our culture and our world have changed dramatically in the last few decades. We now live in a “Post-Christian” America in which familiarity with the Bible, respect for Judeo-Christian values and even belief in God can no longer be assumed. As a result, it is often the...

The Untapped Power of Goodness

The Untapped Power of Goodness

It’s impossible to explain the Gospel without using words. But when those words are accompanied by a lifestyle that is good and right, the power of the Gospel becomes exponential. Would those around you describe you as a good person? When our behavior matches our...

There’s More Good News

There’s More Good News

Poverty is oppressive. Its stranglehold destroys hope and ultimately leads to despair. We’ve all known poverty; if not physical poverty then at least spiritual poverty. The good news of the gospel is news that meets people exactly where they are. It’s news that can...

Something About Those People

Something About Those People

The good news about Jesus is that He came so that we might have life and have it to the fullest. An offer this amazing can easily seem too good to be true. It is completely understandable that someone would be skeptical or want to reserve judgement. But when we...

Just to be Clear

Just to be Clear

The life-changing hope of the good news about Jesus is too important to make muddy. We owe it to ourselves to be clear about this simple message of salvation. You have a story to tell. But your story can take others only so far. Sooner or later, you’ll need to know...

A Good Place to Start

A Good Place to Start

What if we could help create a culture where sharing the good news about Jesus becomes a natural conversation? Around our church we’ve created an environment where those kinds of conversations can happen. It’s called Starting Point. And in this non-threatening, small...

Good News & Bad News

Good News & Bad News

When we have good news like a job promotion, the birth of a child, or even a new car, we usually want to tell others about it. But when it comes to telling others about the good news Jesus shared, what he’s done for us and what we receive from Him, it’s often...

Playing Your Part

Playing Your Part

Any remix of any song is incomplete until the instruments and voices are in the same key. And the LifePoint movement, like a musical score, is incomplete unless you’re playing your part. As a believer in Jesus, you have been gifted by God to give yourself to something...

A Melody For the World

A Melody For the World

The world is a big place. And the needs in our world are bigger than ever. When God works in the world He looks for people through whom He can pour His life and love. Our response to Jesus’ Great Commission finds us in different corners of the globe. But we didn’t...

A Song Worth Singing

A Song Worth Singing

A remix can make a good song great. This is especially true when the lyrics of the song are moving and profound. At our church we have a life-changing message of hope for all to hear and experience. Jesus is the hope of the world. Unapologetically, we’re on a mission...

Catching a New Rhythm

Catching a New Rhythm

A remix creates a fresh, new rhythm in the life of a familiar song. It works that way with life too. In a season of exciting transitions, our church is catching a new rhythm and experiencing a fresh wind of the Holy Spirit among us. Our role is to stay yielded to the...

Fool-in-Yourself

Fool-in-Yourself

If you’ve ever felt like you sometimes work against yourself, your suspicion is well-founded. Inside of every one of us lies a capacity to make dumb choices and distance ourselves from God. From our earliest days, human beings have tried to hide from God. But it’s...

Who Changed The Rules

Who Changed The Rules

We each have ideas about who God is and how He works. We even believe that God operates by a set of certain rules. If I behave myself and do good things, good things will come to me, many confidently affirm. This arrangement of blessings for obedience is actually...

No Excuses

No Excuses

In all likelihood, you’ve made excuses. Maybe lots of them. Some excuses are elaborate and convincing while others seem absurd and laughable. There’s a good chance you’ve even thrown a few excuses toward God. But like any shrewd parent, God isn’t duped by the excuses...

The Kingdom Life

The Kingdom Life

If you are a believer in Christ, then you have most likely faced a scenario where you wanted to follow Christ, but instead you did not. In short, you had a moment of unbelief. Have you ever stopped to think about the importance of what you believe? Everyone has a...

The Nudge to Judge

The Nudge to Judge

We’ve all felt its stinging effects. And we’ve all wielded its destructive sword. Judgment. Jesus plainly tells us not to judge others. What does He mean by that? Dig a little deeper into the Scriptures and you’ll discover a strange twist: We’re actually encouraged to...

Why Worry?

Why Worry?

Numerous medical studies make it clear: we’re in the midst of an anxiety epidemic. In other words, a lot of people worry—a lot. And it’s having a dramatic detrimental impact on our health and on our society. Yet it’s been suggested, “we can do nothing better with...

Chased by the Monster of More

Chased by the Monster of More

You can always count on Jesus to talk about real life kinds of things. That’s why He addresses the possibility that you might feel unsatisfied—always wanting more and more. Like all the challenges Jesus highlights in the Sermon on the Mount, greed reveals a heart...
