What We Believe

At Lifepoint, we love the Bible. That's why all of what we believe comes straight from it. Not from traditions, not from books that someone from the Middle Ages wrote, but straight from God. The Bible is written by God, through the hands of men. It is totally relevant to our lives, and it is the final authority on doctrine, and we strive to rightly divide the word of truth, as 2 Timothy 2:15 tells us to.  Deuteronomy 4:1-2Psalms 119:1189105Isaiah 40:8Matthew 22:29John 5:3916:13-1517:17Romans 15:42 Timothy 3:15-17Hebrews 1:1-24:121 Peter 1:252 Peter 3:16

WE BELIEVE in the One True God, who has revealed Himself as Father ( in giving life in creation), as Son (in reconciliation of humanity), and as Holy Spirit (in regeneration of our lives). -1 Tim. 3:16, Duet. 6:4, Is. 9:6, 

 

 WE BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, who is both God and Man. He is God incarnate; the image of the invisible God; God manifest in the flesh that is God's only begotten Son. We believe as Son He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, and taught with authority. He died for the sins of all humanity, had a bodily resurrection, ascended into heaven, and will return again. Isaiah 7:1453Matthew 1:18-233:178:2914:3316:1628:5-6Luke 22:7024:46-47John 1:11410:3011:25-2717:1-5Acts 1:92:22-247:55-56Romans 1:3-43:23-268:1-310:41 Corinthians 8:62 Corinthians 5:19-21Gal 4:4-5Philippians 2:5-11Colossians 1:152:91 Timothy 2:5-63:16

 

 

 WE BELIEVE that mankind is made in the image of God and we were created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sin. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. We are all created and crafted by God... we are unique, we have incredible worth , possesses dignity, and we all have access to Jesus.

Genesis 1:26-302:718-223Psalms 8:3-632:1-551:5Isaiah 6:5Jeremiah 17:5Acts 17:26-31Romans 1:19-323:10-18235:66:67:14-251 Corinthians 1:21-3115:1921-22Ephesians 2Colossians 1:21-223:9-11

 

 

WE BELIEVE that salvation is a gift from God, given to humanity by grace and received through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Faith is more than a mental assent, more than an intellectual acceptance or verbal profession. It includes trust, reliance, and commitment. We can not separate saving faith from obedience. A person is saved by the gospel being applied to their lives. This takes place when they repent of their sins, and are baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for their remission of their sins. Acts 2:38; Isaiah 1:1853:5-655:7Matthew 1:2127:22-6628:1-6Luke 1:68-692:28-32John 1:123:3-5,16365:24Acts 2:214:1216:30-31Romans 1:16-183:23-255:8-1061 Corinthians 1:182 Corinthians 5:17-20Galatians 2:203:13Ephesians 2:8-10Philippians 2:12-13Hebrews 9:24-28Revelation 3:20

 

 

WE BELIEVE the church is the living, spiritual body of believers of which the Lord Jesus Christ is the Head. The church functions as Christ would function in the earth, seeking to find lost souls for the purpose of bringing them salvation. We believe the signs and wonders as mentioned in Mark 16:16-17, are still operating in His church today.Matthew 16:18-1918:15-20Acts 2:41-475:11-1413:1-314:2316:520:28; 1 Corinthians 7:179:13-1412Ephesians 1:22-232:19-223:10-125:22-32Colossians 1:183:151 Timothy 4:141 Peter 5:1-4Revelation 21:2-3

 

 

 WE BELIEVE there is eternal life in a place God has prepared for those who accept God's grace and receive His gift of salvation and there is eternal destruction of those who reject His grace and refuse His gift. John 3:1636Romans 6:231 John 2:255:11-13Revelation 20:15
