Raise Up Spiritually Passionate Followers of Christ

Date: June 27, 2021

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought challenges for churches around the world, and we have certainly felt the effects of it here at LifePoint. Despite the challenges, God has been stirring our hearts. We have a sense that God is preparing us (along with all of His true followers) for even greater effectiveness in the months and years ahead. This has brought with it a sharpening of our focus and purpose as a church. This message is not only for LifePoint Church, but for all who are ready to put their hands to the plow and never look back.

Letters from Jesus

Letters from Jesus – Part 2

Date: March 14, 2021

If Jesus wrote a letter to your church, would you want to read it? If He took time to communicate what was right about your church and warn you about what was wrong, wouldn’t you want to know every word? Well, Jesus authored seven such letters to seven different churches, and at the end of each letter He said, “Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Join us for this two part message as we examine these seven letters Jesus sent to New Testament believers.

Preparing for What’s Ahead

Date: December 27, 2020

Most will agree, this past year was a challenge. No one could predict the kind of events and trials many have faced. But thankfully, none took God by surprise. Even before Jesus came into this world, God made it clear the kind of Savior He would be. It was His mission to save us and provide everything we need to not only survive but thrive among the trials and tribulations of this darkening world. Join us as we recognize the battles that wage war around us, and the weapons and strategies available to us to not only stand firm but even take back ground that may have been lost.

But Take Heart

Date: February 16, 2020

Life in this world can be difficult. Jesus knew this better than anyone, and he did not try to paint an unrealistic picture for His followers. But He also puts these difficulties in proper perspective. When trials and sorrows come our way, we should remember what He says! Listen and be encouraged by the hope Jesus brings to those who remain in Him.

Put on the New Self

Date: August 11, 2019

To be born again is to become a new creation. The old has gone, and the new has come. But the process of this transformation can take a lifetime to complete. A process to which we must remain committed until we are properly clothed for the wedding God is planning for His Son. The end result is that we will actually bear the image of Christ, the One to whom we have joined and with whom we have been raised to new life. Listen as we take a quick look at a few practical instructions concerning this process of transformation.

A Double-Minded Man

Date: July 28, 2019

Have you ever wondered what this expression really means? Some Bible translations give a hint of the meaning behind “double-minded”, but they can still leave a lot to the reader to figure out. Listen and be encouraged as we explore the origins of this expression, and what the author was really saying when he used it in his letter.

When Hope Fades

Date: June 16, 2019

Have you ever lost hope in something important? It’s a tough place to be that can cause us to make poor choices out of desperation. Abram and Sarai found themselves in that place, and they made a big mistake by taking matters into their own hands. But there is much to learn from it, and we should pay attention to what this historical account can teach us. Let’s prepare ourselves for those times when hope fades.

A Call to Remember

Date: March 17, 2019

Jesus greatly anticipated His last Passover meal with His disciples. The Passover meal itself was to remember something very important, and it was in this setting that Jesus announced to His disciples the New Covenant, one to replace the old, a covenant that would be confirmed with His own blood. Again and again Scripture tells us to remember what happened concerning the old covenant and to remember this new and better covenant that God now offers to us. Listen as we take a closer look at some of what Scripture tells us concerning these things we are to remember.

Straining Forward

Date: December 30, 2018

Whether it’s a new year or a new day, our thoughts and conduct should have one focus… “forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead”. These are some of the words the Apostle Paul writes to believers on how we should pattern our lives. Join us for this encouraging message of hope for those who choose to walk in this way.

A True Disciple Makes Disciples

Date: November 4, 2018

In church circles, we often repeat Jesus’ command to “Go and make disciples.” We’re familiar with the phrase, but what about the meaning? What does it mean to be a disciple? And how do we go about making disciples? In our culture today, we more often use the title of “Christian” than disciple, but does it convey the same meaning? Listen as we unpack these powerful words of Jesus, and take a glimpse at what’s included in this final imperative from Him.

Blessed are the Peacemakers

Date: August 19, 2018

Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” There is no greater honor than to be called a child of God, so what does it mean to be a peacemaker? And more specifically, what does Jesus mean when He speaks of peace? Listen as we take a closer look at this word “peacemaker”, how the children of God are to know this kind of peace, and how we are to promote it among a world separated from God.
