Welcome to Ridge Pointe!
We hope that you will experience the warmth and love that we want to share with you. Our motto here at Ridge Pointe is: “We accept you just as Christ accepted us.”
 
Memory Verse
And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment… (John 16:8).
 
Words of Wisdom
The disciples experienced sorrow when the Lord Jesus told them, “Now I go away to Him who sent Me” (John 16:5). They loved Him and did not want to be separated from Him. However, Jesus’ departure was necessary: “If I depart, I will send Him [the Holy Spirit] to you” (John 16:7). When the Spirit came after Jesus’ departure, He began an ongoing ministry to “convict the world of sin … of righteousness, and of judgment.” Conviction is not forcing a person to believe something. Rather, it is demonstrating that something is true. While this convicting ministry aids people in coming to faith in Christ, most people reject Christ (cf. Matt 7:13–14). This is because a person can see compelling evidence that something is true and yet reject it.
