By God’s grace, High Pointe Church exists to be a gospel-centered church. We believe the gospel is central to God’s mission for the church and for living lives that honor and glorify God.
We believe the Bible makes it clear that the church is God’s “vehicle” for bringing the good news of the gospel to the world and making disciples. On a personal level we feel that ultimately, the answers to all questions of life or death are answered in the gospel.
So what is the gospel?
The gospel means “good news”. The good news is that God sent His one and only Son, Jesus, to die for us so that we would have eternal life now. . When God draws you to His good news, the result is a changed life. . The bible says in “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.”

We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. (ESV)
