Explore How to Grow in Your Christian Walk

God desires to conform us to the image of His Son Jesus (Romans 8:29) and transform us by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2). We believe growth in Christ involves four aspects: word, worship, work, and witness, which are symbolized by the Christian’s head (word), heart (worship), hands (work), and feet (witness). Proportionate growth in each of these areas results in growth in Christ—the process of discipleship. Thus, discipleship is a process of moving persons from being non-believers to maturing disciples who make disciples.

Through the process of discipleship, our church makes disciples and follows Jesus’ final and most important instructions to His Church: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).

A disciple is a Christian who grows in knowledge and understanding of the Word of God (head), cultivates relationships with God and people (heart), dedicates himself to the building of His Kingdom through service (hands), and shares the good news of the gospel through word and deed (feet).

The head, heart, hands, and feet model is our discipleship plan to help all believers both become disciples and make disciples. Because every person has unique qualities, discipleship must be specifically tailored for the individual. No believer shares an identical journey of spiritual growth, and people respond differently to activities designed for such growth. Therefore, each stage in the discipleship process has multiple activities and experiences to meet the various needs of individual growth.

All our steps are designed to cultivate growth within the head, heart, hands, and feet.


Get involved at Christpoint. There are plenty of ways to serve.


The Christian faith often uses the terms “salvation,” “saved,” and “born again” to describe how an individual’s relationship with God can be established by accepting God’s free gift of forgiveness and mercy through confessing their personal sins and believing in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Bible tells us that God desires to be in a relationship with us and give us a full life. That life He desires to give us includes such things as peace, purpose, and fulfillment. Jesus, speaking about His own people, said, “I have come that they may have life, and to have it to the full,” (John 10:10).



Are you ready to outwardly profess your faith through baptism? Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example.

At Christpoint Church, we dedicate children rather than baptize them.  Just as Hannah dedicated Samuel to the Lord (1 Samuel 1:21-28) and Mary and Joseph dedicated the infant Jesus (Luke 2:21-40) to the Lord according to Jewish custom, we believe dedication more closely follows the Biblical pattern than baptism, of which we have no RECORD of an infant or child being baptized in the Bible.  Thus, this dedication ritual does not impart faith or forgiveness of sins to the child.  Rather, it is the parent’s public acknowledgment that the child is a gift from God to them, and that they have a spiritual responsibility for the Christian nurture and training of this child.

Upcoming Dates:

6/9 – 10:00 am Service
