Our Mission

At Crown Point Church we seek to develop programs and ministry opportunities to help people just like you discover and develop their new life in Jesus Christ.  Everything we do is designed to assist you in your walk with the Lord.

Our first concern is that you experience salvation through Christ’s saving power. Each of us make many decisions throughout our lives, but you will never make a decision more important than inviting Jesus into your heart as your Savior and Lord. The Bible teaches that this decision alone determines your eternal destiny.

Soon after becoming a Christian, the selection of a Bible teaching, Christ-centered church home is vital to your relationship with God.  It is essential to find a loving fellowship of God’s people with whom you can share your life.

Crown Point is that kind of church family. Ultimately, we hope to encourage you and provide you with opportunities to exercise your spiritual gifts and talents as we serve the Lord together. It truly is more blessed to give than to receive!

Thank you for visiting our web site.  Please accept our warm invitation to come, see, and discover a special congregation of God’s people whom we know as Crown Point Church!

How to be Saved…

Realize
you need a new relationship with God. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Recognize

Jesus Christ is the only way your new relationship can be established. Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Repent

of your sins and rebellion against God’s will for your life.

…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Romans 3:23

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
Acts 3:19

Receive

Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord. If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Romans 10:9-13

Our Staff

Mike Ragland

Senior Pastor

Mike was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL and has been the lead pastor at Crown Point Baptist Church since April 2019. Mike has been married to his high school sweetheart, Michelle, for over 32 years and he has two sons, Cody and Chad. Mike’s favorite verse is 2 Corinthians 5:17    

Mike’s greatest joy is that his wife and sons love to go out in the community and on short term trips to share their faith and point others to Christ and see lives transformed with the Gospel of Jesus.  

There was a time in Mike’s life when he was chasing empty promises and was self-centered while doing things his own way. But then he was introduced to the person of Jesus and he turned from his rebellion and followed Jesus. Since then he has had purpose and peace with a desire to serve others. Do you have a story like that?

Mike’s vision is to create a community by which everyone can live out their faith without fear but with freedom found in God’s Grace.
