Our mission drives what we do. Our Core Values drive our expectation of how it is done.

Core Values: Launchpoint Church


Christ Centered

We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and the only Savior of the World. Everything we do is done so that His Glory and Grace will be known.

Holy Spirit Empowered

We desperately seek the power of the Holy Spirit; the only means by which we can reach the lost and fulfill the commission we’ve been given.

Passion

We turn from minimal expectations, chase excellence in everything we do, and challenge those we lead to give their best to the work of God’s Kingdom.

Extravagant Faith

We live in full anticipation that God will do, in our church and ministry, those things we are willing to believe and trust Him to do.

Outward Focus

We actively share Christ’s mission to reach those outside our church rather than remain mired in the self-focus of personal preferences and comfort.

Culture of Honor

We honor those that have laid the path before us and bless those who labor among us, as we embrace a new generation before us.

Servant Leadership

We are free to serve people with a pure heart because we are secure in who God has made us to be.

Continuous Improvement

We never stop learning and growing, as we respond to every opportunity to reach our full kingdom potential.

Interdependent

We commit to serve one another and refuse to compete, so that we can help each other succeed.

Generous

We commit to live our lives with an open hand, believing that what we release, God will use, bless, and ultimately replace.

Launchpoint Statement of Basic Belief


The Gospel is the hope of the world. As we read the Scriptures, we see the overarching themes of God’s providence, power and provision to reconcile mankind and the created world to Himself through the person and work of Jesus Christ. In light of this, we aim to be explicitly gospel-centered in all that we preach, teach and practice.


We Believe:


• The Scriptures are infallible, authoritative and sufficient (Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
• There is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-6; Isaiah 46:9-10; John 17:3; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6; 1 Timothy 2:5; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:13-17; Matthew 28:17-20; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6).
• All things exist for the glory of God (Psalm 148; Proverbs 16:4; Isaiah 61:3; Romans 11:33-36; 1 Corinthians 10:31; 2 Corinthians 5:15; Ephesians 1:3-14).
• All humanity, Christ excluded, is sinful by both birth and action (Genesis 6:5; Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:23; 5:8, 12-21; 7:18; Ephesians 2:1-3).
• The deserved penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death (Genesis 2:15-17; Genesis 3:19; Romans 5:12; 6:23; James 1:14-15).
• Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human (Matthew 1:20; Luke 2:52; John 1:1-4, 14; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-3).
• Jesus Christ died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin (John 1:29; 10:1-18; Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 1:4; 1 Peter 3:18).
• Only through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy (John 3:18, 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:21-26; 1 Timothy 2:5-6).
• Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will one day physically return (Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-53; John 1:20-21:25; 1 Corinthians 15:12-34; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Hebrews 9:28; 1 John 3:2; Revelation 1:7).
• There will be a future physical resurrection of the dead. Only those who turn from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal reward. Those who do not turn from sin and to Jesus will be raised to eternal punishment (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15).
