cares about His Church. He is at work ‘building’ His
Church. It is His expressed intention.

desire for you to fulfill God’s Master Plan. Every
believer is to be an active, committed part of His
Church—but which part? Which ‘church’?
We would like to help you seek the Lord for your
place in His Church. Consider the information
provided and ask God if Lakepoint is the place for
you. To make this decision, consider:
