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. Romans 1:16-17
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. John 3:16. When God draws you to His good news, the result is a changed life. 2 Corinthians 5:17. The bible says in Romans 10:9-11 “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.”

So with a clear mission to bring the gospel to Altoona, we at High Pointe Church have 3 Keys that motivate us:
- Unity in the gospel. The love of God is our motivation demonstrated by Jesus on the cross.1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Matthew 22:37, 2 Corinthians 5:14
- Service to others. A love for God will produce a love for othersMatthew 22:39, John 13:34-35
- Outreach to the ones that need to know Jesus. God commands us to tell others of the “Good News”Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 5:18-20, Romans 1:16
The bible says in Colossians 1:23 “if indeed you continue in the faith, stable, and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard.”
At High Pointe Church we will preach the gospel of Jesus Christ because that is what will change your life today and forever.
