In June of 2008, a group of people met at a park for a service. Two weeks later they decided to plant a church they would name Water's Edge. Experts in church planting would never recommend starting a church at the beginning of the summer without a pastor. Nonetheless, the 7 person leadership team led courageously to get this church off the ground. By the end of June, the church had located a school to begin meeting, and they were off and running. So much for the experts...
On November 1, 2008, Darren Tidwell came on board as the Lead Pastor of the church. At the very same time, God blessed the church with a miracle facility that was already built out for a church. On December 21st, the church held its first meeting in a strip center at 2450 E. Main. In January 2009, the church name was changed to LifePoint Church.
With a passion to make disciples and build families, the church was off and running. By August of 2010, the church had grown from around 100 to almost 200. In January of 2011, a second Sunday service was added to allow for continued growth. As of January 2013, the church was averaging over 300 in Sunday attendance. Additional space and a major renovation project was just completed in the fall of 2014.
Characteristics of the church are its friendly environment, commitment to authenticity, family focus, and the desire to see all people walk in freedom.
