Description

LifePoint Church is built on an authentic, contemporary and relevant approach to ministry as we carry out our mission of influencing people to find and follow Jesus. We believe that Christianity is not a religion but a relationship with a person. Jesus Christ. Firmly rooted in Scripture, the beliefs of LifePoint guide our decisions as a church. Through the messages at LifePoint, you’ll hear practical teaching from the Bible that impacts your life no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.

It’s one thing for you to evaluate your own spiritual progress. It’s another thing altogether to have Jesus give His critique of how you’re doing. Sometimes the truth hurts. If Jesus were to write a letter to you about what He thinks of your devotion to Him, what would He say? And since you’re more than an individual—you’re part of a church—what would He say to you and to the rest of us? Would He praise us or express His displeasure? Or both? What would Jesus say to the church called LifePoint?Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
The Abundant Church

The Abundant Church

Despite our romanticism about the early church, they had their fair share of problems – favoritism, theological arguments, and divisions (to name a few). Yet there remained a vision of an abundant church – full of energy, unity, and life. While the church today navigates its own problems, how do we make the vision of an abundant church a reality?Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Who Are You?

Who Are You?

A believer's identity is in Christ. In Him we find true life, meaning, and purpose. Yet, it is common for believers to take their eyes off of Jesus and begin substituting other things in His place. We look for other ways to identify ourselves often choosing how we want to be identified: achievements, titles, politics, gender, race, addictions, disabilities, etc. Sometimes pronouncements are made to us or about us that become our identities: “You’re so beautiful...You’re so good at that...OR...You’re a failure...You’ll never amount to anything...You’re worthless.” The truth is that God sees all believers as His sons and daughters, uniquely gifted parts of the Body of Christ. He has redeemed us and loves us. Any other identity is a counterfeit and falls short.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Count Me In

Count Me In

It shouldn’t surprise us that through the centuries, superstitions arise and thrive even among well-meaning church people. Most of these superstitions are based on a desire for a kind of good luck charm in a life filled with uncertainty and hardship. Even the practice of baptism can be surrounded by all kinds of superstitions. If baptism doesn’t save us, what then is it for? Baptism is a way for a believer in Jesus to say, “Count me in! I want people to know that I identify with Jesus.” Maybe it’s time for all of us to engage with God in a fresh way as we identify with Jesus and the family called the Church.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)

A Call to Action

It is great to gather as the church. But we are also told by Jesus to “go” as the church, sharing God’s word with others and making them disciples. Fulfilling the Great Commission is not an option or a suggestion. It is a command to each of us as believers to actively and intentionally seek opportunities to influence people to find and follow Jesus.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
A Brand New Day

A Brand New Day

2021-09-1229:28

While God never changes in His nature, He does change the way He works with human beings. Jesus announced a significant change when He held up a cup and identified it with His blood that would establish a new covenant. After being raised from the dead, Jesus told His disciples to wait for the promised Holy Spirit. They waited and the Spirit came! The Church was born. That day, God began working in a brand-new way. And to this day, we are participants together with God as He works uniquely among us.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
The church can be described as a body, a family, an army. It’s a movement of influence—one that seeks to bring glory to God and point people toward the Savior. On the night Jesus was betrayed and arrested, He initiated the movement with a meal. He chose food and drink as a picture of His body that would be broken and His blood that would be shed. Through the simple act of eating a meal, the movement called the church is to be reminded of what Christ accomplished on the cross.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
We Are Family

We Are Family

2021-08-2914:58

Many people say that kids and students are the church of tomorrow but that statement could not be further from the truth. They are the church of today. There is so much hope and promise in the younger generation. Throughout the summer, we have talked about how to be spiritually healthy as a church. One of the best ways that we can remain spiritually healthy as a church is to embrace this amazing vision of family ministry. We’ll discuss how all of us can do that no matter where we are in life.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
It might seem natural to equate spiritual health with an absence of weakness and vulnerability. Maybe it’s exactly the opposite. Sometimes power and strength are found where we least expect them. Could it be that running from weakness is actually a weakness? We become spiritually healthy when we see the value of humility, weakness, and vulnerability—all-powerful responses when combined with trust in God. When it comes to strength, God’s ways can seem upside down.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Hearing God's Voice

Hearing God's Voice

2021-08-1533:23

If we said we had a personal relationship with another person, we’d all assume, at the very least, some degree of regular, back-and-forth conversation. So how does a “personal relationship with God” work? We talk to God through prayer, but how does God talk back to us? Of course He uses the Bible, which provides general information, but to say we have a personal relationship, there must be more and deeper conversation, where we “hear” God’s words, not just in general, but specifically for us. We’ll discuss how this works and how to move in that direction if you’ve not experienced this intimate level of communication with God.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Caring for One Another

Caring for One Another

2021-08-0830:31

God has gifted each of us to contribute to the spiritual well-being of the body of Christ. Being good stewards of our gifts means using them to impact the lives of others. Loving one another, serving one another, accepting one another, and encouraging one another are some of the ways we can use our gifts and experiences to grow strong and find fulfillment in the Lord individually while promoting the caring nature of the Christian community and contributing to our spiritual health.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Freedom From the Past

Freedom From the Past

2021-08-0133:42

Our past marks us. Those experiences go into making us the people we are. But some of those experiences we would rather forget. Guilt, shame, and regret can carve deep gashes in our souls—permanent reminders of another life we would prefer to leave behind. But God reminds us that He can free us from the unwanted narrative of past failures and sins. Through Christ, freedom is real and rewarding. And it’s possible for all who follow Him.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
The Dark Night

The Dark Night

Following Jesus on the path towards spiritual health sometimes leads us up mountaintops. Here, God’s presence is a tangible experience, and activities like prayer, scripture reading, and worship are fulfilling. However, as we continue to follow Jesus, we will inevitably be confronted with His crucifixion on the hill called Cavalry. This may seem like a place that leads to spiritual death, not life. Yet, as we follow Jesus up this hill, we will uncover a level of spiritual health we can’t find anywhere else.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Branching In

Branching In

Spiritual health is impossible apart from discipleship. We can hardly say that, as Christians, we are spiritually healthy if we are not following the way of Jesus. The question is how do we follow Jesus in a healthy way? It is very easy for discipleship to become about “Do’s” and “Don’ts” and a list of rules. These things look like discipleship but fail to produce real-life and joy within us. This week we’ll look at some of what Jesus had to say about how to follow Him well.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Getting to know God ranks high on the list of life’s most meaningful quests. God has revealed Himself to us. He is knowable. And we can grow to know Him in deeper and deeper ways. But our knowledge of God is always connected to the knowledge of ourselves. As we get to know God, we get to know ourselves. It’s impossible to learn about God in a vacuum. We naturally see ourselves more profoundly as we journey to discover more about God.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Read the Bible

Read the Bible

We live in an age of information overload, and the amount of information increases every day. Yet the most important information ever written is contained in one book–the Bible. The words in the Bible, God’s words, give us life–spiritual life, eternal life. Jesus said, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” To be spiritually healthy, we require the nourishment that comes from God’s Word.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Faith in the Fire

Faith in the Fire

When opportunities arise and we are thrust into the spotlight, we have a choice to make. We can choose to camouflage our convictions to match our surrounding culture, or we can stand true to the people God calls us to be. Today’s sermon will awaken us to the reality that God may be leading us into these so-called opportunities. We’ll learn they may not always be a positive experience and could even lead us into danger. As we discover the fire of obedience we will ponder the potential challenges we could face and ways to remain obedient in spite of them.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
A Theology of Work

A Theology of Work

One-third of our lives are spent at work. When you consider errands, chores, hobbies, or raising children, the percentage of our lives we spend working can be significantly higher than 30 percent. Considering how much time we spend working, is there a connection between our work and our spiritual health? This week, we’ll discuss how work is more than something we do to pass the time here on earth, it’s one of the ways we live with God as His image-bearers.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
From the Inside Out

From the Inside Out

2021-06-1337:38

To be spiritually healthy is to be thriving in your desire to pursue Jesus and walking in the strength of the Holy Spirit. But spiritual health is tricky. We might be so obsessed with looking good outwardly that we fail to pay attention to what’s going on inside us. No wonder Jesus addressed the outwardly religious of His day with a scathing indictment. “Hypocrites,” He said. It’s not enough to just play the part outwardly. Spiritual health works from the inside out.Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
Finding the will of God is both a mystery and an adventure. Certainly, we would be short-sighted if we didn’t curiously and diligently pursue the path God wants us to walk. If Jesus is our Lord, it makes sense for us to do what He wants us to do. Can we know what He wants us to do? If so, how specific can we expect His direction to be? And how much freedom has God given us to make decisions that have consequences for good or bad?Support the show (https://pushpay.com/g/lifepointchurchreisterstown?src=hpp&r=monthly)
