We’re glad you’re taking a look at Waypoint through our website. We’re even more stoked that you may be considering stopping by one of these Sundays. If that happens, we’d like to give you a heads-up as to what you can expect when you get here.
Putting it simply, you can expect a church where you’ll be welcomed warmly and accepted just as you are. Whether you’re a lifetime follower of Jesus Christ or a committed atheist who thinks we’re a bit misguided, you are welcome here and you can expect a place that will let you bump into Jesus while we get out of his way and let him show you who he is and what he wants to do in your life.
So, what kind of church are we that would lay those expectations before you? Well, that is answered in the following statements.
We Follow Jesus
We aren’t about creating a movement, attracting a crowd, or making headlines. We are simply followers of Jesus who are passionate about him and want to learn what it means to us individually, as families and as a church to follow him everyday in every area of life.
Worship Him with reckless abandon
Worship is about attributing worth to God and we like to do that with reckless abandon. That means that we sing, pray and celebrate God’s presence among us with authenticity and freedom.
Believe & Teach the Bible
We let God speak to us through His Word, the Bible. That is our guide and authority for what we believe about Jesus, God and the essential truths that really matter. So, what the Bible teaches, we believe and we seek to live it out in and through our lives, even when that is difficult or is contrary to our own opinions.
Be & Do what Jesus said
We believe that Jesus wants to know us and calls us to be with him. So that’s what we strive for…to BE the kind of people he wants us to be. Then, as an expression of who we are, we seek to do his work in the world by being his hands and feet to one another, our community and wherever we go throughout the world. Invite others to Come and See When people inquired of Jesus who he was or what he was about, often his reply was simply,
“Come and see.”
So that’s what we do with our friends and family—we invite them to come and see what God is up to at Waypoint so they can bump into Jesus, then we do our best to get out of his way so he can introduce himself in the way he wants.
So that’s it. That’s what you can expect when you show up on Sunday or to any other event our church hosts. We hope we’ll see you soon so we can welcome you as friends.
