How long has LifePoint Church been around?
Early in 1987, a group of about twenty-five people began meeting with the desire to start a new church. That Spring, Joe Duke and his family moved from Dallas to assist in the birth of LifePoint Church, known then as Carroll Community Church.
Is LifePoint associated with any denomination?
No, our church is not tied to any particular denomination. We maintain a relationship with several sister churches in the Maryland area and have a similar approach to ministry shared by churches nationwide.
What are some of the beliefs of LifePoint Church?
Most importantly we believe that Christianity is not a religion but a relationship with a person, Jesus Christ. Authentic Christianity affects every area of our lives. In addition we embrace the truths of historic Christianity by believing that the Bible is a sufficient guide for living, and Jesus Christ is God in the flesh Who died for the sins of the world and was resurrected to life. (For a more detailed doctrinal statement see the section entitled What We Believe.)
What is the thinking behind the style of the worship service?
God is a God of variety, and there are many different forms of church services. We believe God has called us to minister through a style that relates to real life in authentic ways. Creativity, excellence, and a dependence on the Holy Spirit all go into every Sunday morning service. We use contemporary music, preaching that is biblical and applied to daily living, and even drama to help us think about the implications of God's truth in our lives.
