At Centerpoint, you will experience friendly people, excellent and modern worship music, and relevant messages in a comfortable environment. Our services last approximately one hour and include lively worship music, a few current announcements, short greeting, and a thirty minute message from one of our teaching pastors. If it is your first time at Centerpoint, we will offer you a gift during the service (just raise your hand when prompted), but we promise not to embarrass you or ask you to stand or speak. You can bring and use your own Bible during the sermon or we also print the verses each week in the bulletin for you to follow along with.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God in both the New and Old Testaments (II Timothy 3:16; John 17:17; II Peter 1:21).
We believe that there is only one God. This God exists in the form of three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17 & 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; John 14:16).
We believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18, 20; Luke 1:34-35). Jesus Christ is both fully divine (John 1:1, Philippians 2:6) and fully human (John 1:14). He will return someday for believers and dwell with them forever (I Thessalonians 4:16-17).
We believe the Holy Spirit lives within every believer at the point of salvation (John 14:16-18; I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19). This indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, which occurs at salvation, is called the baptism of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 12:13). The filling of the Holy Spirit is an experience, which follows salvation and occurs when believers submit themselves to the controlling power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:5). The Holy Spirit gives various spiritual gifts to believers (I Corinthians 12:11). The purpose of these gifts is the building up of the church (I Corinthians 14:3-5, 12, 17, 26).
We believe Satan is real (Matthew 13:19, 39; Acts 5:3, II Corinthians 11:14), but God is more powerful than Satan and has already defeated the power of Satan on the cross (Hebrews 2:14-15).Satan is the originator of evil in our world (Genesis 3:1-7; Ephesians 6:10-12).
We believe that all people have sinned (Romans 3:9, 10, 22, 23; Psalm 14; Isaiah 53:6).
We believe that Christ died for all people (Romans 5:18; II Corinthians 5:19; I John 2:2), but only those who accept the forgiveness offered by Christ will be saved (John 3:16; I Timothy 1:16).Those who have not accepted this forgiveness will suffer eternal punishment (Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:11-15). Salvation is on the basis of faith only (Ephesians 2:8-9), but this salvation is evidenced by a life that is changed by the power of God (John 8:31 and 14:15; I John 2:3).
Centerpoint Church is a non-denominational church. For the purpose of community and mission we do belong to a network of churches called Transformation Ministries.
