ABOUT US

Together we are a community of believers. What does that mean, the word community? We believe that together in fellowship we grow closer to God and one another. The bible speaks about iron sharpening iron. We believe that together we grow stronger. We are a community of believers. 

 

We strive to be a church without walls. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the lost and the broken. It is there that the lost will be found. Most churches find it is comfortable to stay within the walls, but we make it an effort to be like the church from the book of Acts, to see our city changed.

 

We highly value our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately growing closer to God. We value the word of God, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look to extend grace to all of the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.

OUR HISTORY

SMALL BEGINNINGS

  1. In 1999, several families from the Byron Center community felt God was preparing them to start a new church, most of whom were attending Grand Rapids International Fellowship.
  2. In October 2000, High Pointe Community Church (A Church of the Nazarene) held its first public worship service in Byron Center Christian Middle School with over 180 in attendance.
  3. Since that first Sunday, High Pointe has grown and changed, but has kept the same fiery passion for God’s mission and for loving the people both in and outside our doors. 
  4. In 2019, we stated the All-In Campital Campaign to pay off our buildling debt.
  5. Pastor Tim Nelson has led High Pointe since September 2017.
