OUR VISION IS TO HELP PEOPLE DRAW LIFE FROM GOD AND POINT OTHERS TO HIM
WE WILL DO THAT BY HAVING A GOSPEL IDENTITY – KNOWING WE ARE UNDENIABLY FLAWED AND UNBELIEVABLY LOVED // A REACHING PRIORITY – BEING AS CONCERNED ABOUT OUTSIDERS AS WE ARE INSIDERS // LIVING IN AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY – A PLACE WHERE WE CAN BELONG AND BECOME // A SPIRITUAL INTIMACY – BELIEVING GOD WANTS A RELATIONSHIP WITH ME MORE THAN WANTING ME TO FOLLOW A SET OF RULES // OWNING A PERSONAL MINISTRY – BECOMING A SERVANT OF OTHERS INSTEAD OF A CONSUMER OF RELIGIOUS SERVICES // ONE PERSON AT A TIME // ONE FAMILY AT A TIME // ONE GROUP AT A TIME // ONE CAMPUS AT A TIME // HELPING BROKEN PEOPLE BECOME WHOLE
Lifepoint continues to directly support Kingdom efforts in five (5) countries across Africa, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean, with 3 long term missionaries and 2 mid-term missionaries on the field in 2022. We were finally able to travel to 3 countries. We are also in the process of implementing a couple more global partners in 2023.
Lifepoint continued to support three North American church plants in 2022, with two of those partnerships being new church plants. We were excited to see how God works through Grace Church in Harrison, Ohio, and Hope City Church in North Dakota. Lifepoint’s continued generosity now allows for new partnerships to be formed in new cities. There is a possible second domestic partnership for our Lewis Center Campus.
At Lifepoint, the majority of our local missions are done through our Lifegroups. We believe that we can do more and do it better that way. In 2022, we have groups and individuals continue to step up in major ways. We have seen great involvement in our community through our groups. To see a listing of some of the organizations that our Lifegroups partner with, please visit Serve The City.
At Lifepoint, our Authentic Community continues to run strong. We are a church where no one walks alone. In 2022, Lifegroups expanded to new neighborhoods throughout Central Ohio, reaching areas like Marion, New Albany, Plain City, West Columbus, and Hilliard. Lifegroups have formed to meet specific needs such as Marriage Enrichment, Post Abortive support for Women and Men, Grief, Grand-parenting and Fostering and Adoption, just to name a few. As people invite their neighbors and friends to Lifegroup, our people are multiplying and sending Lifegroups into more and more neighborhoods for additional local connection opportunities.
