About us

ConnectingPoint is a gospel-centered community church that lives and breathes people and is not limited to the four walls of our building. Our space is open for you to learn more about Jesus — no matter where you are in your spiritual journey. We are devoted to loving God, loving others and sharing Jesus with our family and neighbors. 

One “connection” opportunity comes on Sundays when families, singles and seniors gather on the second floor at 72 Jefferson Street. The beautiful brick mill building is our temporary home here on earth where we celebrate all that Jesus is and has done for us.  Our worship service is casual and contemporary. Then throughout the week, we connect in small groups as an extended family doing life together like Bible Study, service to our community and recreational activities. 
 
ConnectingPoint seeks to expand God’s Kingdom in Marlborough and beyond, fostering a community of faith and love as we share God’s grace and the joy of salvation to everyone. We look to God to bring renewal in every sphere of life by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We welcome all who desire to come and learn and experience the love of Jesus.

BELIEFS

The earliest Spirit-filled Christians shared a common faith that cut across languages, ethnicity and continents. The words of the Apostles' Creed summarize our beliefs.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty
maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
and born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell.
On the third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,the holy Christian church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

The words of the Apostles' Creed, along with the Nicene and Athanasian Creeds, summarize the Biblical beliefs since the earliest days of Christianity and they are the truths that we believe, teach, and confess at ConnectingPoint.

At the center of our faith is the redemptive work Jesus did for us by dying on the cross for the sins of all human beings and rising from the dead in victory over sin and death. This is called the Gospel (good news). We believe that Jesus came to save all people (John 3:16). And God freely offers his grace and forgiveness through faith in Jesus Christ.

ConnectingPoint is a multi-ethnic community with people from different backgrounds (Christian, spiritually curious, English-speaking, Portuguese-speaking, Spanish-speaking, Cantonese-speaking, Mandarin-speaking, etc.). This is a church where people are loved and feel accepted, even if you have questions and doubts. It is a place where someone will always greet you and make you feel welcomed. It is a place where you can experience community and learn more about God in your own time, at your own pace without pressure.

In our community we are shaped by the Bible's story of redemption and renewal. We believe the Bible to be the reliable, authoritative and sufficient word of God, and are therefore committed to the Scriptures with practical application to life.

Partners in the Gospel

We don't believe in walking it alone, or being theological lone rangers. We accept the Biblical truths that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century and led to a renewed focus on the Gospel - the good news of God's grace expressed through faith in Jesus (Ephesians 2:8). We walk together with over 6,000 other Christian congregations across the country in a church body known as the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.  For an overview of our beliefs please click here and here.

We work with Christian churches like Mount Calvary Lutheran Church and others in the suburbs of Boston. We like start new churches too. We are also facilitating a movement of church plants and disciplemaking.
