Values, Vision and Mission

Purpose of New Points Church

The Purpose of New Points Church is to lead people to KNOW Jesus; to GROW together in our knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ, and then GO share that love of God with others.

New Points Values

 

  1. Prayer:  We make prayer a vital part of our individual and corporate relationship with the Lord and other believers. When man works, man works but when man prays God moves!!!

 

  1. People: Lost people matter to God, so they should matter to us. We invest in the lives of others by promoting other-centeredness. We share in each other’s burdens, the burdens of our community and rejoice in each other’s victories. We consider others more important than ourselves.

 

  1. Ongoing Growth: We need to not just maintain but multiply. Equipping every believer for life and ministry. Multiplying and releasing people to serve in the power of the Spirit.

 

  1. Taking Action: We desire to be contributors and not consumers. We need to proactive not reactive. We value finding innovative and creative ways to reach out to our community.

 

  1. Promoting Unity: We want to be known for what we are for and not what we are against. We believe Godly unity is marked humility and a self-sacrificing spirit.

 

  1. Being Multi-Generational: We believe the modern can co-exist with the sacred.  We value honoring God together through worshipping, serving, discipleship and reaching our community. 

 

  1. Faith in Jesus Christ: We desire to be a Christ-Center Church that believes and teaches God's Word, promotes holiness living and follow the Bible as our sole authority for what we believe and how we live.
