Core Values

The foundation of The Point Church is the Gospel. The Gospel is this:  The just and gracious God of the universe has looked upon hopelessly sinful mankind in their rebellion and he has sent his Son, God in the flesh, to both bear his wrath against sin on the cross and to demonstrate his power over sin in the resurrection so that everyone who trusts in him as Lord and King will be reconciled with him forever.

What does The Point believe about Jesus? Jesus Christ was a real, historical figure, both fully God and fully man.  He lived a perfect, sinless life and died a substitu- tionary death on the cross for the sins of mankind.  He dis- played His Godhood in that he was raised from the dead after three days, completing the work he came to do, namely to glorify God by providing a means of salvation to all people of all nations (John 1:1-14, 3:16, 14:6-7; Romans 5:8, 6:23; Colossians 1:15-23).

What does The Point believe about  the Bible? The Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God.  God used human authors to communi- cate the precise message He intended.  The Bible is a collection of 66 books (Genesis – Revelation), written on 3 continents over the course of some 1,500 years by at least 40 different authors, yet it contains a singular vision of God’s plan to glorify himself through the redemption of mankind.  The subject of the entire Bible is Christ, who is the focus of divine revelation and the centerpiece of all human civilization.  As the God-breathed, per- fect Word, the Bible is the final authority in every area of life (Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Joshua 1:7-8; Psalm 19:7-10; Matthew 5:17-20; Luke 21:33; 24:27; John 5:39; II Timothy 3:16-17).

What does The Point believe about sin and salvation? People were created by God to have a relationship with Him.  Unfortunately, all people have chosen to rebel against God, which is what the Bible calls sin.  In fact, the Bible states that all people are in their very nature sinners, meaning that our sin is inseparable from us and pervades everything we do.  Because our sin is so pervasive, we are unable to save ourselves, so God became a man in the person of Jesus, lived a perfect life and died a sinless death as a sacrifice for our sin.  Salvation is the act of being reconciled to God and is only attained by belief in this atoning work.  True belief is reflected by a commitment to the Lordship of Christ over all of life.  In sum, salvation cannot be earned by anyone and comes only as a gift of God by believing in Jesus (John 3:16; Romans 3:23-4, 6:23, 10:9-10; 1 John 1:1-5).
