The Big Picture We all tend to think we’re here to carve out the best possible life for ourselves, right here and now, but that’s a lie. But the problem isn’t that we’re thinking too big. The fact is, that goal is way too small. We were made for more. God didn’t create us to indulge ourselves, but to reflect his image—and to spread it everywhere.  To tell the world that he is King over all, and to show what a good King he is. Our personal kingdoms are tiny and temporary.......

When Adam and Eve rebelled against God and broke his law, all their descendants were alienated from God too. We all emerge from the womb broken. The question not whether, but how we’re broken—and how we’ll respond.  Sin infects all of us. We all need reconciliation with God, and the only way we’ll find it is through his grace and mercy. That’s exactly what he’s provided for us. God’s Son entered humanity to suffer alongside us while he obeyed in all the ways we’ve failed. He became the only perfect offering, in......

Before we describe what it looks like to be Bible-saturated, we ought to explain why we’re convinced it’s important. And we don’t just believe it’s important to be Bible-saturated. We believe it’s essential. That’s because of the nature of our problem. The Bible tells the story of humanity’s relationship with God, beginning with God’s creation of all things. From it’s earliest pages, we learn that Adam and Eve rebelled against their Creator and failed to do the work he had created them for. Rebellion against the Creator King is a serious offense. When......

Calling our church “Christ-centered” sounds like a pretty audacious claim. Do we actually measure up? We Aspire “Christ-centered” is easier said than done. We know we’re not there yet. We learn in Hebrews 1:3 that Jesus Christ is “the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature.” God created mankind to reflect his image, but we’ve all failed. We’ve actually reflected a distorted image of God. Only when God himself entered humanity in the person of Jesus did a man—the God-man—perfectly display the image of God. Though we......

Our family just moved to a new home. In a fast-paced housing market like the Austin metro area, you have to distinguish between your “must-haves” and your “nice-to-haves.” Our must-haves included an open floor plan that would accommodate larger groups from the church, and a bit more cabinet space in the kitchen. Our nice-to-haves were a bigger back yard, a loft, mature trees, and wood floors. We got some of the nice-to-haves, but the ones we missed weren’t deal-breakers. There’s a good chance that you landed on this page because you’re looking for a......

First, the easy part. We chose “Cedar Pointe” simply because we’re a plant from High Pointe Baptist Church, and we’re sending down roots in Cedar Park. (In case you’re wondering, we know about the amusement park in Ohio, and there’s no connection—even though church planting can be a roller coaster ride…) As for “Church,” that’s just what we are. In the Bible, a church is a group of people who gather weekly to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection and to help one other follow Him—people who are committed to Christ, and to each other.......

Part 1 of this article introduced two needs High Pointe Baptist Church saw that compelled it to plant Cedar Pointe in Cedar Park. That post addressed the first need—the pastoral need. Now in part 2 we’ll explore the missional need. By “missional need” we mean that Jesus established his Church and gave it the task of making disciples of all the nations. Since lots of people haven’t yet heard of Jesus, and many of those who have don’t yet worship him, out task remains unfinished. And the fact is that people are......

Our last post explained a bit of how we got here. But that doesn’t quite explain why we need to start another church here. For several years we’ve seen two reasons: 1. A pastoral need 2. A missional need The Pastoral Need Forty people drove a half hour or more to High Pointe in northeast Austin because they believed a church with High Pointe’s unique mix of culture, priorities, and convictions offered the best soil to nourish their growth in Christ. Obviously, there are lots of churches in Cedar Park that love......

Cedar Pointe may be a brand new church, but we really got here a long time ago. Most of us have lived in the area for more than ten years. Quite a few of us are Austin natives. Others are from Houston, Dallas, the Midwest, or the Southeast—and of course, California. Most of us first met each other at High Pointe Baptist Church in the northeast corner of Austin. Ten years ago, two clusters of people were driving 30 minutes or so to High Pointe—one in Elgin and the other in Cedar......
