ChangePoint is a community of people on a vital mission to bring Life in Christ to every Alaskan and the world beyond.
We’ve all seen the heartbreaking statistics about violence, addiction and depression in Alaska.
We believe that all of these problems are symptoms of a deeper problem. People are separated from God – leaving them unable to live the lives that God designed them to live. We believe that the only way to bring healing to our state is to see people reconciled to God through Jesus Christ. That is our vision, and it is the foundation of everything that we do at ChangePoint.
So how do we get it done?
We have three core values as a community that bring people closer to God.
Enjoying God Together.
Enjoying God Together.
The gospel is good news! God has made a way for us to be in right-relationship with him and given us the Holy Spirit to empower our lives! That is the best news!
As a church, we celebrate together all the time. In our weekend worship services, we sing together – thanking God for what he has done and praising Him for His greatness and faithfulness to us. We have church-wide cookouts and movie nights to enjoy one another’s company and enjoy what God is doing in our community.
We believe that having fun together isn’t a problem, it’s a solution.
Being transformed together.
Jesus calls us to follow him. God’s people should be a community who always look a little more like Jesus than they did yesterday. We believe that God has given us three tools to help us become more like Jesus:
• The Bible, the inspired Word of God.
• The Holy Spirit, God’s own spirit to empower us.
• The Church, the community of all Jesus’ followers.
We love the Bible. Every week our message is either based on a single passage of the Bible, or explores a theme of the Bible across the whole book. Our LifeGroups also spend some of their time studying and discussing the Bible each time they meet.
One of God’s most incredible gifts to us is the Holy Spirit, God’s own spirit to transform and empower our lives. The Holy Spirit enables us to love God with everything we’ve got, and love our city.
Christianity is not a solo sport. Life transformation happens in community. The main sources of community at ChangePoint are our LifeGroups. LifeGroups meet all over the city in homes, offices, and coffee shops. LifeGroups come in all shapes and sizes. Some are based around a life-stage, interest, or neighborhood. Others span generations and are organized around a common goal.
Demonstrating God’s heart together.
The Bible teaches that God made everything in the world, and that when He made it, it was all good. But people rebelled against Him and broke the world, separating it from God. The most famous verse in the whole Bible, John 3:16 says, ““For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (ESV)
God loved the world so much that he sent His own son to restore it.
That is God’s heart for the world, and demonstrating that heart is our third core value. We actively fight back against evil and injustice, by showing God’s love to hurting and broken people.
We partner with organizations throughout our city, across our state, and around the world to demonstrate God’s love for people.
