Hope. A lost commodity that needs to be constantly renewed. Something that when gained can change a person’s life. Something that when lost can cause irreparable damage. Hope. The very thing that causes people to keep going, keep pushing, keep persevering. Scientists and doctors believe that when a person loses hope, they lose the will to live. Jesus gives us hope in ourselves…in each other…and in the belief we can change the world. Hope.
In August 2010, Baypointe Church was started with a single purpose in heart and mind: to bring hope to Panama City Beach and the greater Bay County area. Over the last few years, God has done just that. He has used this church to bring hope to the lives of people everywhere.With modern worship, friendly people, and a teaching style that is rich with passion and life application, Baypointe Church seeks to be a church for everyone. From the mature believer, to the person who feels church is something they will never need, we are all on a spiritual journey, and our hope is that you will make us a part of yours.
To be encouraged in heart, united in love, and completed in Christ. (Colossians 2:2)
This mission statement will be the foundation of what we do: Encourage, Unite, Complete. By encouraging the hopeless, we can introduce them to the grace, mercy, and love of Jesus. Uniting them with a community of believers in a small group (Life Groups) environment will be the intentional next step. Finally, by creating and implementing mechanisms by which people can serve God and others, the person will have the ability to move closer to being complete in Christ.
Baypointe Church is a place that strives to cultivate a person’s ability to engage Christ in a life changing way. We will not be afraid to employ cultural relevance, a commitment to excellence, full authenticity, and Christ-like service to create a community where non-believers and believers can personally experience the love of Christ.
Our Core Values:
Cultural Relevance – 1 Corinthians 9:22
We believe we must be relevant to the community without sacrificing the truth of the bible.
Excellence – 2 Corinthians 8:7
We will strive for excellence based on our standards, not those of other churches.
Authenticity – 1 Corinthians 4:20
We will not fake it. We will rejoice and weep together.
Service – Ephesians 4:12
Serving with no expectation of anything in return is a foundation we will build on.
Community – Acts 2:44-47
Life is a journey that we will go on together. We believe in doing life together.
