Sermons about Missions

Alive for a Reason

Date: January 15, 2023 | Speaker:

Do you ever wonder why you’re here on this earth; why God is keeping you alive, and whether or not there is really any purpose to it all? Yes, the daily grind of life can sometimes feel like a pointless, monotonous routine, but the fact is, there’s much more to this life—to your life—than meets the eye. Regardless of who you are, where you live, your education, your occupation or your level of influence, you are still living and breathing for one reason: God has an assignment for you! You were saved, not as the final step in your spiritual journey, but as the first step to a mission God has created for you to carry out. Wherever God has placed you, He wants you to be a living testimony for Him right there, touching others with His love and pointing them to Him. The only question is, are you willing to accept your assignment and faithfully carry it out?

Ecuador and India Missions Update

Date: January 9, 2022 | Speaker:

We’re so thankful to see all that God is doing through the faithful people of LifePoint Church right here in our own city. But we’re also grateful for the doors God continues to open for us to go and minister in other parts of the world. Today we hear stirring and encouraging reports from mission work in Ecuador with child sex trafficking, and from India with children forced into poverty and slavery.

Are We Broken?

Date: October 16, 2016 | Speaker:

It is far too easy for us as Christians to be so occupied with Christian activities and to surround ourselves with other Christians that we actually forget about the lost people all around us. But if we are living like Christ, we will not only be a friend of sinners like He was, but we will have a broken heart for the lost like He did. What is it that breaks our heart? Is it ever broken for the lost?

Reaching Our City

Date: May 15, 2016 | Speaker:

What if an entire church left the comfort and convenience of their air-conditioned auditorium on a Sunday morning and took their service out into different parts of the city to carry the Gospel to others? Today, LifePoint Church begins the first of many outdoor services in our goal to reach our city for Christ, because He never told the church to sit and wait; He sent them to go and tell!

What If We Loved Like Jesus?

Date: October 4, 2015 | Speaker:

Jesus said the two most important commandments are to love God and love others. As the church, we typically spend most of our time together expressing our love for God, but how well are we doing at loving others, especially those who are not like us? Are we better at pointing fingers of criticism at the lost than we are at going out and actually loving them? What would happen if the church learned how to love like Jesus?

Launching Into the Great Commission

Date: June 28, 2015 | Speaker:

When a teaching series comes to an end, it’s easy to move on with life and never actually put what we’ve heard into action. Today we conclude our Saved & Sent series by hearing testimonies of what God is doing in different people, and we commit as a church to launch into the Great Commission like never before. What will you do with the things you’ve heard in this series? Will you file them away and forget them, or will you commit to putting them into action for the glory of God?

A Dying Man’s Request

Date: June 21, 2015 | Speaker:

Is the great commission a humanitarian cause to better mankind? If we think of the Great Commission as Karma, then it really is nothing more than a humanitarian cause. So what is the motivating factor that causes men and women through history to be obedient to the Great Commission?

Are You a Friend of Sinners?

Date: May 31, 2015 | Speaker:

Jesus has been given many wonderful titles that display His power and majesty, but the title that shows His deep love for mankind most clearly is: Jesus, Friend of Sinners. During His ministry, He was sharply criticized for spending time with notoriously sinful men and women. But Jesus reminded His critics that those very people were the ones He came into the world to save. Now that we have been sent to carry on His mission, could it be said of us that we, too, are a friend of sinners?

Called to Make a Difference

Date: May 17, 2015 | Speaker:

Since we have been called to penetrate our culture and make an impact for Christ, there must be something about us that gives us the ability to actually make a difference. One of the things Jesus compared us to is salt, but how can salt make any difference in the world? Join us as we explore the amazing properties of salt and discover how we have been called to exhibit those same life-changing qualities to impact the world around us.

What You Do for Christ Matters!

Date: May 10, 2015 | Speaker:

When we consider what part we are supposed to play in the Great Commission, it can be difficult to know where to begin. The vastness of the mission compared to our limited resources and abilities can leave us feeling overwhelmed and immobilized. But God never asks us to do more than we can. All He asks is that we do what we can and allow Him to take our little and use it for something great. Be encouraged to know that however small your role may seem, what you do for Christ matters!

Go! But Before You Go… Wait!

Date: May 3, 2015 | Speaker:

Jesus sent His followers on an urgent mission to take the gospel to the entire world. But before they were allowed to go, He told them to wait. Wait for what? If the mission was so important, what could possibly be more important than going? During the next ten days in the upper room, they discovered the power of prayer that would transform their lives and propel them into this mission with a supernatural boldness not their own. Have we discovered that same power?
