Welcome to Five Points

A Place Where You Can Belong

About Us

Our vision is to make a lasting difference in personal lives, in the community around us, and in the world.

We know finding a church can be overwhelming… At FivePoints, we are more than a weekly gathering between the four walls that make our building. People are the church and all are welcome to engage in our community!
We are a church who believes that the Bible is unchanged and true, that the God who made all of creation created each one of us for His great plans and purposes and that Jesus Christ, His only Son, is the Only One who saves. Our Vision is for every person to have a clear picture of God, and for those who believe to have a deep life in Christ that changes everything.

What We Believe

at Five Points Church

The Bible

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God. God gave the Bible to us through men who were moved by the Spirit to write the words of Scripture. The Bible is without error. It can and should shape the way we live. (Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; Hebrews 4:12)

In One God

We believe in one God who created the universe, man in His image and is the savior of all people. This one God exists in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are all together separate and all together one. (Genesis 1:1,26-27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1-5,18; 1 John 5:7)

In Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He became flesh, lived a sinless life, and offered Himself as the sacrifice for sins of men by dying on a cross, that He rose from the dead after three days and ascended to Heaven and will return again to earth to reign as King. (Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; Acts 1:9-11)

In the Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God, and that God has given us the Holy Spirit to help us live for Him everyday. The Holy Spirit connects people to Christ, equips them in their relationship with God, and helps them share Christ with people who do not know Him. (John 14:16-17, 16:7-15; Acts 1:8, 2:4; 1 Corinthians 2:12)

Mankind

We believe that mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him. However, mankind became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Isaiah 59:1-2; Romans 3:23).

Relationship with God

We believe that every person has sinned and is separated from God. Jesus chose to come to earth, live, and die so that we might be forgiven and begin a relationship with God. We can’t make up for sin by self-improvement or good works. Forgiveness only occurs when we put our faith in Jesus as the payment for sin. (John 1:12, 3:16, 14:6; Romans 3:10, 23, 5:1,12-19)

Christian Life

We believe that every believer should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Bible and being baptized in the Holy Spirit, every believer will mature, be conformed in the image of Christ, and receive power to be a witness in this world. Our life should show Christ. (Matthew 16:24-26; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:29; Galatians 2:20, 5:24-25)

The Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus is the Head. It is made up of people growing in God, connecting to each other, serving those in need, and sharing Christ in their community. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost world. (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:14-16; Colossians 1:18)

Eternity

We believe that Jesus Christ will return to the earth one day to take everyone who has believed in Him and entered a relationship with God to heaven to live for eternity. People who have not chosen to accept Christ will be separated from God for eternity and will not be able to experience heaven. (Romans 3:20-23; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 21:6-8)

Ordinances

We believe the two scriptural ordinances of a New Testament church are water baptism and communion. We follow the command to give public evidence of our salvation with baptism by water and faithfully remember Christ’s cleansing blood and broken body with the elements of Communion. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41, 8:12-13, 16:30-33; Matthew 26:26-29)
