If you have any questions about Lakepoint Community Church, Faith, or anything else that we believe please contact us, and we would be happy to answer any questions you have.
Our purpose is to create opportunities to promote intimacy and growth with God and each other and to reach out beyond ourselves by helping others make this life changing connection. This commitment includes: connection, growth, serving and reaching others by loving God and loving people.
That life-changing connection happens when we fulfill our scripture-inspired purpose to Love God and Love People. Christ commissions us in Matthew 22 to love the Lord our God with all our heart, all our soul and with all our mind. Likewise, He instructs to love others as we would ourselves.
In action, the instruction can sometimes be a challenge for us. However, God did not intend for us to try this alone. Lakepoint follows His command by nurturing a community of believers to love and serve each other as we strive to live out Christ’s commission in this world.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
The Bible is God’s word to all mankind. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal; with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead on the third day to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make mankind aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation providing power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under his control daily.
We are all made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although mankind has tremendous potential for good, we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates us from God.
We all were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. The place of eternal separation from God is called Hell. Heaven is the place of eternal union and eternal life with God.
Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life with God begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life through faith. In obedience to His command, we follow in His example to be baptized.
The church is the Body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Head of the church. Members of the church are those who have trusted and placed their faith in the completed work of Christ.
