WHAT WE BELIEVE
To be transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to bring glory to God by living out His mission.
To teach and encourage one another as disciples of Jesus Christ to bring the good news of the transforming power of the Gospel to others in our community.
Our Statement of Faith
There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness, and peace.
The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.
The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God: he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.
Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.
It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.
Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age.
The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.
The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and premillennial. This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.
Jesus is the Christ
We believe that Jesus is the Christ, God incarnate. He came in human form to sacrifice Himself, once for all, that we might not perish but have eternal life. This is the bedrock of our belief—the spiritual DNA of The Alliance. Our family tree bears the fruit of the deeper life, Fourfold Gospel, and the “living out” of Alliance core values—all fueling our uncompromising call to “go” wherever and whenever God leads.
As an Alliance church, we believe that our mission blends both the concept of being and doing. In being with Jesus and sitting at His feet, our lives are transformed. As we grow in relationship with Him, we desire to know Him more deeply as Savior , Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King.
We are ordinary people from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds, obeying Jesus’ command to complete His Great Commission. Empowered by our extraordinary God, we are doing our part to go and make disciples of all nations. Whether at home or overseas, The Alliance is taking faith-filled risks to see Christ’s Kingdom multiplied throughout the world.
Redemption Point Alliance Church celebrates Jesus—the image of the invisible God, the Lord of all Creation!
“For in Christ, all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness.” Colossians 2:9-10
Because of who He is and what He’s done, we are compelled to “go!” Humbled by the open invitation He extends to us—what we call the Great Commission—we join Him in His work to restore and reconcile lost and broken people to Himself.
We believe in the power of prayer. Prayer will be at the heart and forefront of Redemption Point Alliance church. Proverbs 19:21; 1 Thessalonians 5:17
We believe in making disciples: Elevation in Discipleship: We believe that God intends for the church to evangelize and make disciples not merely church members. With this belief, we will have bible-based teaching and preaching with the intent that individuals grow in spiritual maturity. Understanding that God’s word can transform the mind providing all who would submit to His will a new perspective and world view based on His divinely inspired word. Matthew 28: 18 – 20; Romans 12: 1 - 2
We are diverse: In Jesus Christ we have a new identity. We are grafted in and no longer outsiders separated by race, culture, economics, age, classism or any other barrier. Jesus Christ, the great equalizer is our identity. While we celebrate and appreciate our differences, our collective identity is Jesus Christ.
(Rom 5:7, Phil 2:2, 1 Cor. 12:5)
We are community: We are a community of believers that are living life together as we actively follow and pursue a deeper relationship with Jesus. We are committed to walking with each other through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows by emulating Christlike lifestyles of acceptance, grace, love, and an unwavering determination of Kingdom living. Redemption Point is dedicated to serving each other and the community through our spiritual gifts, the Holy Spirit, and the empowering Gospel.
(1 Cor. 12 and 14, Romans 12, Ephesians 4, Psalm 133:1)
We are a movement: Jesus demonstrated what a Kingdom movement should look like by welcoming His disciples to follow Him and serve Him. We want to mirror Christ's example of raising up disciples through training and equipping to exponentially advance the Kingdom. one soul at a time. Matthew 28:19-20)
We are worship-minded: We believe that worship is a lifestyle. Individually, a transformed life is our reasonable act of worship. Collectively we will come together in the presence of God to celebrate and worship Him with enthusiasm and reverence. Romans 12: 1 – 2; John 4:23
We serve: We are a church that believes in serving others. Mark 10:45 reminds us of this call, ""For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." We believe it is our privilege to serve others as Christ served. Through our service, we want to bless others, and bring Jesus wherever and through whatever we are doing. Matthew 23:11
We like to eat and have fun: We are a church that loves to eat! Many of our activities revolve around food and although we maintain our bodies as a temple, we often fellowship through food and this is something we do well.
We also like to have fun with each other and new people. We hope you will come and join us!
Redemption Point Alliance Church is served by an elder board. the Bible is very specific about the role of an elder, the lifestyle of an elder and the character of an elder. Because leadership is so important to us at Redemption Point, anyone who wants to be considered as an elder, must complete the eldership training courses prior to nominations being accepted.
Biblically, the focal point of all church leadership is the elder. An elder is one of a plurality of biblically qualified men who jointly shepherd and oversee a local body of believers. The word translated “elder” is used nearly twenty times in Acts and the epistles in reference to this unique group of leaders who have responsibility for overseeing the people of God.
The character and effectiveness of any church is directly related to the quality of its leadership. That’s why Scripture stresses the importance of qualified church leadership and delineates specific standards for evaluating those who would serve in that sacred position.
If you have any questions regarding eldership, you can call Pastor Lindsey. If you, or somebody you know are interested in being considered for an elder role, contact Lindsey for details.
Alliance churches follow the same practice of baptism subsequent to conversion to Christ. Those who have repented of sin and put their faith in Jesus for eternal life are encouraged to take this step of obedience.
Immersion in the baptismal waters symbolizes the end of the old way of life. Coming up out of the baptismal waters pictures the new life found in Christ. The person who was previously dead in sin has been made spiritually alive by the same power that raised up Jesus from the grave. United with Him, the believer is released from the power of sin in order to obey God. Paul portrays this life change as putting on new clothes: “for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ” (Galatians 3:27).
Water baptism identifies a person as a disciple of Christ and celebrates the passage from an old life into a new life in Christ. Simply stated, it is an outward sign of an inward change. If you are interested in baptism, contact Pastor Lindsey for details on the baptism class.
