You have prayed for LifePoint Brussels to find the right place to call a home and God has answered. So many of you gave to the One Day Offering helping us reach our goal of a larger space so we can gather more men, women, and children to hear and respond to Jesus. Kyle Goen (LP Brussels Campus Pastor) and Daniel Christensen (LP Brussels Community Outreach Director) signed a lease this week on an office space that will become the new gathering place for our community called LifePoint Brussels. During the week LP BRU lives sent out across Brussels for ministry and outreach. They also gather weekly to worship as an expression of the body of Christ.

The LP Brussels community will begin weekly gatherings in the new place on June 16. As we prepare for that first gathering in our new place, the owners will build-out a kitchen area and a children’s meeting area for our growing Kid’s Ministry. Their current space is approximately 700 square feet for gatherings and ministry. The new location will allow LP Brussels to work with 1800 square feet plus common spaces and a restroom facility. We are the renting 4th floor office space for multi-use all throughout the week and weekend.

Thanks to our Heavenly Father for answering the prayers of His people. Thank you for praying on behalf of LifePoint Brussels and the team who are working hard to bring Glory to His name alone. Please continue to partner with us as a team as we seek to live for Him.

Recently at LifePoint, we began a series called Genesis: A Story of Pursuit. We are seeing through every story in Genesis, that God is relentlessly pursuing those he made in his image…us. Even after all of man’s failures—the eating of the fruit, the murder of Abel, the evil on earth before the flood, and the pride of the people in Babel—God continues to run after mankind.

Before the deception in the Eden, Adam and Eve were in perfect communion with God. Walking with him together in the garden—naked and unashamed. All that God created was good. Adam and Eve were there to enjoy and serve the Lord. When sin entered the world, communion was broken and they were banished from His perfect presence. Out of Adam and Eve’s decision to choose sin over God, came the greatest need that has ever or will ever exist—the need for reconciliation. This would become the center point of the people of Israel’s worship. God showed that death was the price of sin as he clothed Adam and Eve with animal skins after the fall. For hundreds and hundreds of years, priests would continue to offer sacrifices in attempt to cover the sins of the people of Israel, but ultimately this system would simply show that we cannot bring about our own reconciliation.

In the end, only one could satisfy our greatest need:

But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.” Hebrews 10:12-14

So how should the fall effect the way we worship today? Allen Ross says in Recalling the Hope of Glory, “Before sin entered the world, ‘worship’ was in effect pure celebration, adoration, and enjoyment of God; but after sin entered the world, ‘worship’ had to include the process of gaining access into the presence of God as a new creation for that celebration.” Now, we not only worship God as our Creator, but us our Redeemer. The one who pursues us no matter what. As we sing, pray, give our tithes, take communion, hear the Word and do whatever else we do in our worship services, we must never forget the separation and brokenness that Jesus healed for those of us he has called to be his saints. If we fail to acknowledge the fall in our worship, it will be impossible for us to understand the power of the cross. For it was by, through, and for Jesus that God created the universe and all of its wonders, and it’s through the cross of Jesus, that God creates in us a new heart and new life so that we can ultimately gain access to “Eden” again and spend eternity resting in the sanctuary of his presence.

Last week, we shared the One Day Offering initiative to support and serve Foster Children and the families who care for them. This week we are focusing on our second initiative: Making Him Known in Brussels.

The impact of LifePoint Brussels is increasing in a nation where less than one percent of the population claims to know Jesus Christ. In Belgium today, grandparents may attend mass from time to time, parents are Catholic “culturally” but don’t practice the Catholic faith and students do not claim any religious affiliation.

Adults, children, students and now interns are living incarnationally to display the love and life of Jesus. LifePointer’s connect each day with people in Brussels as they are going throughout their day-to-day life and routines. The primary ways include each day in schools, neighborhoods, and markets. They are also purposefully creating spaces to meet with people as they host groups, meet-ups, and English conversation groups. In Brussels, LifePoint’ers serve refugees and people caught in the snares of human trafficking.

As a result, LifePoint Brussels is out of room and space for their Sunday Gathering. Would you give to the One Day Offering enabling new space to be created for more people to learn what it means to be a follower and learner of the life of Jesus.  Together, we can provide more room so more disciples can be made for the Kingdom of God.

You can follow LifePoint Brussels on Facebook and see recent photos showing their reach and impact.

One Day Offering

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom! That is definitely true at LifePoint!

On Easter weekend, LifePointers all around the world celebrated the freedom we have in our Risen Lord. The weekend began with the Smyrna and Stewarts Creek Campuses gathering together for a Good Friday Service. This was a special time as we focused on cross and the blood of Jesus and took part in a unique, staff-led time of communion and remembrance.

The Lynnwood and Brussels campuses held Easter egg hunts for their communities over the weekend. They each had amazing turnouts. What a great way to bring joy and reach out to people who need the Gospel.

On Easter Sunday, we began a new series at LifePoint called Freedom – celebrating that not only has Christ set us free from sin and death, but he has set us free to live as a free people! Almost 5,000 people gathered at our five different campuses around the world. One way, we celebrated Freedom at the Smyrna Campus was to have a special time of baptisms during the service. Almost 40 people were baptisms throughout the three services. Check out this video to see all of the baptisms from that weekend.

Another way we celebrated Freedom was with the release of a brand new single by LifePoint Music called “Freedom.” The song is free to download from lifepointmusic.com and has already been downloaded by over 700 people around the world. If you would like to know about the song “Freedom,” check out the story behind the song below.

Thank you LifePoint, for making Easter weekend such a special time at each of our campuses. Let’s live in the freedom that Christ brings us!
