Here at LifePointe we believe that all followers

of Jesus are on a continues journey of growth.

The role of the church is to

nurture that growth by having

a safe environment.

Prayer/ Baptism

"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weakness, but we have one who had been tempted in every way, just as we are - yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need".  Hebrew 4:15-16 NIV

Prayer is perhaps the greatest earthly privilege we as Christians are given: communion with God. In simplest terms, prayer is speaking with God. In prayer we give our lives up to God - letting Him know everything that is in us, even when we lack eloquence or well-crafted words. We praise, mourn, repent, rage, break, and seek. Whatever form the conversation may take, we find comfort in knowing God is always going to be with us.

Prayer is a place of solidarity. Just as Jesus bore our burdens on His cross, we can bear the burdens of others, laying them before the Father in prayer. Prayer is not only for ourselves - prayer is unselfish, allowing the body of Christ to join in one voice of praise, thanksgiving, or petition to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Every Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:00pm people gather in the sanctuary

to pray for our cities, churches, the global world.

Baptism has been a Christian symbol since the time of Jesus (Matthew 3:1-6). It involves applying water to Christians to symbolize their death to the old way of life (Romans 6:3-4) and their new life God provides (Galatians 3:26-27). Baptism, a sacramental "means of grace," seals one's intention to follow God (Acts 2:37-41, 8:35-39. 10:44-48). The Bible never defines how much water was applied or how. Therefore, we consider immersion, sprinkling, and pouring all to be acceptable methods of baptism.

LifePointe also understands baptism to be a symbol of the new relationship God established with His people. Because of this, some people may choose to have their young children baptized as a symbol of their intention to raise their children in God's Church and their hope to see their children choose God's ways when they are older.
