What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer


At LifePoint Church, our Statement of Faith outlines the core beliefs that unite us as a community of believers. 


We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21)


We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; that these are equal in every divine perfection; and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence, and redemption. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; Jude 20-21)


We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns himself mercifully in the affairs of humankind, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to him through Jesus Christ. (Isaiah 44:6-8; John 4:24; James 1:17-18)


We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice, and are therefore under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe a person is saved by grace through personal faith in Jesus Christ. (John 1:12; 3:16; 20:31; II Corinthians 5:20-21; Ephesians 1:3-7; Titus 3:5-6; I Peter 3:18; I John 5:11-13)


We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and came to earth in human form. We believe in his virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in his substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for his people, and personal, visible return to earth. (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; 53:4-5; John 1:14; 5:22-23; Colossians 1:15-20)


We believe in the universal church – a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church – consisting
of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, service, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world. (Acts 2:42; Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18; I Peter 2:9-10)


We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that all Christians are baptized by the Holy
Spirit when they are born again and He is our indwelling helper, teacher, and guide. (John 3:5-6; 14:26; 16:13-14; Romans 8:26; I Corinthians 12:4-7; II Thessalonians 2:13)


We believe that Christ instituted two specific ordinances that are outward symbols of an inward spiritual truth or experience, which all believers are to carry out in obedience to Him. These two ordinances are believer’s baptism and Communion (or the Lord’s
Supper). Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the triune God. Water baptism does not save or cleanse from sin, but it is a response to Christ’s command. We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death and is open to all believers who have made a profession of faith. (Acts 2:38-47; 8:12-13; I Corinthians 11:23-30)


We believe God ordained the family as the foundational institution for the physical, spiritual, and emotional growth of individuals, the church and the society. We believe that marriage is a sacred covenant between a man and a woman. We believe God
commands a husband to be the servant leader of the family, loving his wife as Christ loves the church; that a wife is to be her husband’s helper providing him love, respect, and support; that both husbands and wives submit to one another under the headship of Christ, treating each other as equals before God and sacrificing self for the well-being and spiritual nurturing of the family; that children are commanded to obey and honor
their parents. (Romans 1:21-28; Ephesians 5:21 – 6:4; I Peter 3:1-7)


We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final
judgment, the eternal happiness of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked in hell. (Matthew 24:31-46; I Corinthians 15; II Corinthians 5:10; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15)
