Welcome

 

Our mission is to build a family of believers who bring pleasure to God as we love Him completely (Reaching Up), love one another unselfishly (Reaching In), and reach out to the world in Christ’s love (Reaching Out).

 
We are continuing to monitor the forecast and impending Winter storm and will notify everyone via email, Facebook and the website when a decision is made regarding church service on Sunday. This will most-likely occur Saturday afternoon. Get prepared now for possible power outages, make sure that you have what you need (fuel, food, meds, etc) for a few days. If anyone needs assistance, please send an email to the church email (lifepointchurch14@gmail.com). We pray for everyone’s safety.

Sunday Mornings @ 10:30am

 Pastor

Pastor Ray Conner is the lead pastor of Life Point Church.

I am originally from Scotland Neck, NC. I was saved in my home church at the age of 14. Later that year I felt God’s calling on my life to preach His Word. I responded to God’s call, and after graduating from high school, made my way to Free Will Baptist Bible College in Nashville, TN. It was during that time that I met Ginny Gaskins from New Bern. Ginny would later ask me to marry her and make her the happiest girl on earth (this isn’t really true, of course).

I have a passion to minister to people. As a result of that passion, I entered Liberty University’s online program for counseling. In 2009, I received my MA in Professional Counseling and started the arduous process of state licensure. In December, 2012 I became an independently licensed professional counselor through the state of North Carolina.  I am also a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist through the state of North Carolina. I love the counseling ministry and try to share God’s love through this calling.

Ginny and I have three totally awesome adult sons. Raymond is our oldest and is married to Nena. Ray started and runs his own business in Asheboro, NC. Ray and Nena have three beautiful children, Finley, Cohen, and Lucy. The grandkids are adorable and I wish I could take credit for their looks and smarts.

Joseph is our middle son and he is married to Allison. Joseph and Allison live in the Newport area and attend Life Point Church. They’re just an awesome couple and so supportive.

Our youngest son is Marcus and he is married to Jill. They attend Life Point Church and Jill plays keyboard for our Praise and Worship Team. Marcus and Jill are a beautiful couple

I’m excited about what God is doing through Life Point Church. We have incredible people who love the Lord and their community passionately. Join us for a Sunday worship experience. You’ll meet some of the friendliest people anywhere who will accept you just the way you are.

Prayer Wall

Christopher Hodge, October 18, 2021 - 2:00 am

I'm asking for prayers for my family right now as we have just lost my birth mother she passed away Saturday night at 9:20pm from a severe infection in her legs and also had a fever so if you would please keep me and my sister in ur prayers as we handle this difficult situation thank you everyone

Roy Glover, October 15, 2021 - 11:15 pm

Update on our son Colton: Colton went through surgery yesterday afternoon. While we were told Colton should recover, he's got a tough road ahead. Damage to muscles, intestines, abdomen etc will take months to heal. Truly an act of God he survived or wasn't much worse. His stomach was left open to ensure infection is cleared and for access if they have to do another procedure. He’s certainly having difficulty with pain and frustration. Thanks for continued prayers and support.

Roy Glover, October 14, 2021 - 1:13 pm

Our beloved Colton had a serious accident early yesterday morning. For the most part he's ok, but he's going into surgery around 1:30 pm because he has a artery in his stomach that was injured from impact and seatbelt. There's a clot they're concerned about and the doctor has called to go in to repair. Prayers please; not much time now for questions. Thank you! God's working a miracle!

Debra Sanderson Baker, September 22, 2021 - 4:26 am

My brother and his fiance both fighting Covid. Please pray for continued healing.

Brother Roy G, September 20, 2021 - 5:02 pm

Sheila Kennedy, July 23, 2021 - 11:18 pm

My sister in law, Lisa Fields will be having surgery to remove and biopsy 3 tumors inside her bladder. It's most likely cancer. Lisa has had a rough year. First, my brother passed away (I had requested prayer for him a while back) then her Mom passed away 2 weeks ago. Please pray for her healing, physically and emotionally. Thank you

    Giving

    Our God is a God of abundance and He loves to give. He sacrificed willingly on the cross and then invited us into fullness of life. As His children, we are called to imitate Him. Our generosity in giving is a demonstration of God’s character and a response to what He has done for us.
