In 2010, a group of six families were confronted with a reality that stirred a deep and holy discontent. Fifty thousand people, in a county of 70,000, claimed no church affiliation. That reality was daunting. The thought that thousands of people right in our own backyard, in a community with a rich spiritual heritage, had no connection to Jesus or His church felt entirely unacceptable.
As that group of families met in a home to pray, the Holy Spirit made it clear that He was calling us to not only be the voice of Jesus to the unchurched in our county, but also to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the underserved. As that group said “Yes,” to the Spirit’s invitation, the gathering moved from praying in a home to meeting in the back of a local restaurant…and there, Mission Point Community Church was born.
Where we have gathered has changed over the years (a restaurant, a Christian school, and now a local high school) but the mission has remained the same! We are on mission to reach our community for Jesus. We exist to become a church filled with people who show and share the love of Jesus everywhere we go, starting with those in our own county.
Although we don’t know exactly what the future holds, we are excited about what God is doing in our midst and where He is taking us. We would love for you to join us!
