Kingdom Expansion

Chapel Pointe believes that Jesus, the promised Messiah, is the Light of the world and calls all people to seek and find salvation through His name. As transformed followers of Jesus, our desire is that every people group around the world would have an effective witness living among them, testifying of His saving love and power. As a church, we are committed to identifying, mobilizing, and partnering with families and individuals answering the call to serve Jesus’ kingdom expansion plan locally and globally – through evangelism, discipleship, and church planting.

Here are some ways you can pray for our global missionary partners:
  • Pray for diligence, perseverance, and effective ministry
  • Pray for boldness and open doors/receptivity to the Gospel
  • Pray for provision and times of rest/refreshment
  • Pray for health and safety
  • Pray for how God can use you for His kingdom expansion purposes
