The Ninety-Eight Podcast

 

Because we spend 98% of our lives outside the walls of our church buildings, the aim of The Ninety-Eight Podcast is to help Christians think and live from an explicitly biblical worldview out in the world. We pray you are encouraged and edified in your walk with Christ through this podcast. Available on all major podcasting platforms. Click a button below or access the RSS link here.

EQUIP

 

EQUIP exists to assist the church in producing mature disciple-makers and to help participants apply scripture to every area of their lives. Through classes, nights, and forums, you will find an array of opportunities to be trained to think and live from an explicitly biblical worldview. Classes are taught by elders and members of Crosspoint Church and are open to anyone.
