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
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58).
 
Words of Wisdom
Because of what Christ accomplished on the cross and through His resurrection, believers can say with Paul, “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Death, sin, and law have been destroyed through the cross and the victorious resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. In light of what Jesus did, as His followers, we are to be “steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord” (15:58). Such diligence in labor is not in vain in the Lord because it will be rewarded at the Judgment Seat of Christ (1 Cor 3:12–15; 2 Cor 5:10).
