Lifepoint Church exists to bring glory to God through lives surrendered to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Over the last six years, we have seen God change and transform many lives through His Word. During this time, we have had the privilege to serve Tunica and the surrounding areas. We look forward to all that God has in store for our little church on the corner.
We believe in the Sufficiency of Scripture.
We believe the Bible is God’s Word. More importantly, we believe that it is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. Thus, we are constantly reforming ourselves in view of God’s Word.
(Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:32; Proverbs 30:6; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 22:19).
BAPTIST FAITH AND MESSAGE
We affirm the Baptist Faith and Message.
Lifepoint is a Southern Baptist Church that is deeply committed to the eternal truths of the Christian faith. We live in an ever-changing world, where many believe truth is relative. At Lifepoint Church, we believe truth is absolute. We believe truth is at the foundation of what we do and who we are. For a more detailed explanation of what we believe click here.
Our goal is not to grow as fast as we can. Our goal is to grow as healthy as we can. We are very deliberate in our membership process. Every member of Lifepoint Church is carefully counseled to determine whether or not they truly understand and have experienced Biblical conversion. Our goal here is not elitism. We simply wish to avoid giving false assurance to those who are not truly regenerate. Our mission is not to get as many people to “walk the aisle” as possible. We desire to see true conversion. We constantly proclaim and explain the gospel, and take our time with people struggling to understand what it means to follow Christ.
(Romans 3:23, 5:8, 10:9-14; Ephesians 2:1-10; Matthew 7:21-23; Luke 6:46; 2 Corinthians 13:5, etc)
We are especially careful with children and would never manipulate or rush any child.
(Matthew 18:6; Mark 9:42; Luke 17:2)
We Practice Systematic Exposition
Because we believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, we practice systematic exposition in our preaching ministry. That means we preach verse by verse through sections of the Bible in order to faithfully proclaim “the whole counsel of God” to his people.
We are committed to Baptism by Immersion
This is the essence of what it means to be a ‘Baptist’ church. While we respect Christians from other orthodox traditions, we will only receive members who have experienced
‘Believer’s Baptism’ by immersion.
We are committed to Christ Exalting Worship
The New Testament has surprisingly little to say about worship styles. However, one thing is sure: we are to engage in Christ exalting worship through praying, preaching, Scripture reading, singing, giving, honoring and obeying God.
(John 4:23-24; Romans 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 14:15; Ephesians 5:18-20; Philippians 2:9-11; Colossians 3:16).
