Our Vision

Starting Point Church is a non-denominational church and a part of the Vineyard Association of Churches. There are over 1500 churches worldwide. We are open to people of any religious background. We endeavor to follow the pattern of worship and living as laid out in the New Testament. Our focus is on helping people discover and become who God created them to be. 

“Our goal is to be a community of believers that is radically devoted to Jesus, passionately committed to one another, and relentlessly focused on reaching those who have “not yet” decided to follow Jesus Christ. We’d love to have you join us.” ~ JT and Rachel, Senior Pastors


We are not interested in persuading Christians away from their home church to come to ours.

Our primary focus will be to reach out to the “non-churched” (those with no church background) and the “de-churched” (those who have had a negative experience with Christianity and have lost interest in the church) as well as “displaced Christians” (those who have some level of faith but have not found a church in which they truly feel at home).

At the same time we embrace those who have allowed Jesus to capture their heart. Those who are excited about the adventurous dream of reaching people who are far away from God, and who are willing to serve over being served.

What We Believe About God

There is only one God, and he is the creator of everything. We’re made in His image, which means we’re like him in many ways, except that he’s God and we’re not. He’s loving and just and desires a relationship with us. As individuals with free will, we have the freedom to respond to the relationship God’s initiated with us, or not.

We’re free to choose to live outside the realm of the life God has for us as it is explained in the Bible. Put another way, many choices we make either move us closer to God or further away from him. Making even seemingly small decisions that separate us from God is called sin. We all do it, and we’ll continue to do so. And, even then, God will love us and passionately pursue us.

God loves us so much, in fact, that he sent his only son, Jesus, to die so the rest of us could live. The cost of sin was separation from God—spiritual death—until Jesus came and his death paid everyone’s debt. That’s serious love. Because of that serious, perfect love, this gift from God is waiting for anyone who wants to receive it. This is called Grace. God gives grace freely and abundantly.

As for us, we need only to decide whether or not to believe and receive this stuff. If we decide to believe it, we have available to us a new, full life that can start now and never stop. It’s OK to have a lot of questions along the way. Although God reveals things to us (including what he’s revealed about himself in the Bible), he remains mysterious and wonderful.
