Centerpoint Church is a growing, dynamic church in Southern California. Our mission is to love and lead people to a life-changing connection with Christ. Our church started in 1989 as the Lamb’s Fellowship, and has grown to more than 1500 in weekly attendance. We have recently changed our name and opened our new worship center. Our church is team-led, culturally relevant, and we embrace both an attractional and missional strategy. We lean to the charismatic end of the spectrum, but we are not full-tilt Pentecostal. We just want people to truly encounter the presence of God in our gatherings.
