We exist to inspire people to follow Jesus.
Here at NewPointe, we create relevant environments that are designed to encourage and equip you to connect with God,
connect with others, and connect others to God. We do all we can to help you overcome your hurts, habits, and hang-ups by being a
safe place to hear a dangerous message. We like to think of ourselves as being a church for people who don’t exactly like church.
Come and be part of our family this Sunday.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. When it comes to our Creator, the Bible is the only trustworthy source for understanding Him. God is one, yet has existed since the beginning of time as three distinct and equal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14)
Jesus Christ is God’s Son and an equal of the Father, existing from the beginning of time. In the first century A.D. Jesus lived His earthly life, being both completely God and completely human, simultaneously. And after living a perfect, sinless life, Jesus offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for every human, ever. After three days in the grave, He defeated sin and death by rising from the grave. He then ascended to heaven and will return to earth one day to reign as King. (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14; Titus 2:13)
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is a full and equal part of the Trinity. He works in the world to make all people understand their need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives inside every follower of Jesus from the moment they decide to follow Him. The Spirit is our power source for life, ministry, and spiritual growth. (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; 5:1; Galatians 5:25)
Man is the centerpiece of God’s creation, being the sole creation God made in His own spiritual image, with the moral ability to choose right from wrong. Every person, although endowed with the image of God, inherited a disobedient heart from Adam, the very first man. This attitude of disobedience (called sin in the Bible) – unless rectified through Christ – forever keeps man from forming a relationship with his Creator. This attitude also keeps us from being the kind of person God created us to be. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; 59:1-2; Romans 3:23)
Salvation is a gift from God. Our disobedient nature has eternally separated us from our Creator. No matter how hard we try, we can never earn our way back into God’s presence. Our only hope is to turn from our self-ruled life and trust Jesus as God’s provision for our disobedience. Whenever you make that decision, you step into the eternal and abundant life Jesus promises for all believers. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 14:6; 2 Peter 3:9; Romans 5:1, 10:9-10, 13)
What you decide about Jesus Christ in this life will determine where you will spend eternity. God made you to exist forever. Heaven is a perfect place, and since none of us is perfect we were all headed for an eternity of separation from God. That’s why God sent Jesus: to pay the price for our sins so that we can spend eternity with Him. If you accept Him, you’ll spend eternity connected with Him in heaven. (John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 21:27; Matthew 25:41; Isaiah 2:4; Jude 14; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18)
About the Bible
The Holy Spirit inspired human authors to write the books of the Bible. Every word of Scripture is chosen by God Himself. The Bible is God’s love letter to all of humanity and is the final authority in every issue it communicates. It is complete truth, and we can trust it for all matters in this life and eternity. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160; 12:16; Proverbs 30:5; Hebrews 1:1-2; John 5:39)
Our values and beliefs guide us. They express the integrity that individuals believe in. They serve as a tool in daily interactions that guide behavior, and that's why attached to each of our values is a question.
We believe the Bible is God's Word and is without flaw. Therefore, it is our ultimate standard. To what extent are you fulfilling what Scripture calls you to do and to be?
We are called to be spiritual contributors, not spiritual consumers. We believe the church does not exist for us; we are the church and we exist for the world. How are you leveraging your gifts for God's purpose?
We give up the things we love for the things we love even more. We believe it is more blessed to give than to receive-through our service and giving. What are you giving up for the cause of Christ?
We believe God is active in every person's life. It's the church's role to equip individuals to respond to this. What are you doing to help someone realize their God-given identity and purpose?
Connecting with God
God is the ultimate power source for personal transformation. Lasting life change happens through intentional pursuit of Him. How do you listen for God's voice, and what steps do you take to obey when He speaks?
There is power in full grace and complete truth, which is best experienced in authentic community. Doing life alone is deadly. Who has your complete trust and can speak truths that you may not want to hear?
