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...

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...

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 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...

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...

Everyone Is Invited

Everyone Is Invited

Some people imagine God as someone He is not—a stodgy and vindictive overseer who wants nothing to do with them. If God is like that you might want to hide or withdraw or pretend He is not even there. You might even feel passed over by God, insignificant or ashamed....

What in the World Are You Doing?

What in the World Are You Doing?

Consider this exciting and sobering reality: You have one life to live. None of us sets about to waste the time we have on this earth. But unless we’re intentional about the way we live for God, we can easily live a distracted and unproductive life. Maybe it’s time...

Playing Like a Team

One of the basic fundamentals of a team sport is that you play like a team. The likelihood of victory increases when each team member works together to contribute the very best possible. Nowhere is teamwork more essential than in the body of Christ. Because we’re on...
