The head of every church is Jesus, our Chief Shepherd. Our desire is that everyone in The Point follows, serves, worships, and is ultimately accountable to Jesus. We take his Word (the bible) as good, sufficient, and authoritative in all areas of life.
Under Jesus and His word’s authority, an eldership is established to lead and govern local expressions of Jesus’ church. The New Testament prescribes that local churches should be led by a team of elders (also known as pastors, overseers, or shepherds). The Point functions in this way, with a team of pastors who work together to lead the church. These men make up the eldership of The Point Community Church. Elders are qualified men, called by Jesus, affirmed by the church to oversee the health, growth, and direction of The Point Community Church. They do this primarily through shepherding people, cultivating leaders, and proclaiming and applying God’s Word.
