Four Points Cartersville is a campus of Four Points Church in Acworth. We exist to advance the gospel in Cartersville for the glory of Jesus by making disciples through a process of Love, Devotion, Passion, and Legacy!
We desire to see lives transformed as people encounter the gospel and to see people who live in true community propelled outward declaring and demonstrating the gospel. We believe strongly in Jesus’ words, “Behold, I am making all things new,” and He has invited us to be a part of that.
The mission of Four Points Church is to make disciples as we share and apply the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We seek to carry out this mission to our community through a strategy that centers around four basic points. These four points help to frame our discipleship process.
God LOVES us. We know this because He sent His son, Jesus, to pay the penalty for our sins and rebellion (John 3:16; Romans 5:8). When a person comes in contact with a love as great as this… they are forever transformed.
At Four Points everything begins with this great LOVE. Without it… we have no message or reason to exist. With it… we have a powerful force capable of melting the hardest heart. It is our desire to drench all that we do with a sincere LOVE for God and an honest and real LOVE for people who need to experience it. In the words of Jesus, “Love God, Love people” (Matthew 22:34-40).
Love always leads to DEVOTION. It’s why people get married. They love, so they commit their lives to one another.
At Four Points we want to build mature Christians. DEVOTION helps us take the necessary steps to deepen our faith. Like the first church, we devote ourselves to the study of the Scripture, worshipping with other Christians as a unified church, preaching and teaching, and prayer (Acts 2:42). It is our commitment that you never leave a service at Four Points without growing in your understanding and worship of Jesus, so you can leave and serve Him more thoroughly.
Every mature organism is capable of reproducing itself. PASSION is what causes a mature Christian to live as a beacon of light in a dark world (Matthew 5:14-16).
At Four Points we fully understand the mission that Christ gave to His church (Mark 16:15-16). We are the stewards of the greatest hope that mankind has ever known. We will not cower, and we cannot be silent (Acts 4:20). We gladly leverage our temporary lives for the eternal purposes of God (Philippians 1:21).
Great men who build great organizations begin with the end in mind. Their legacy has a lasting impact on people whom they have never met nor known.
At Four Points it is our desire to so love God and others, devote ourselves to God, and live passionately for Him… that our children will be quickened to continue to carry the Gospel torch long after we are gone. May all future generations in our city, surrounding areas, and the world, be impacted by Jesus through our efforts for Him.
We gather corporately each Sunday at 11AM to Worship the Lord through Song, Scripture, Preaching and Prayer.
We have three small groups that meet throughout the week in Cartersville. We currently gather every Tuesday and Thursday in community in Cartersville to grow in the gospel with one another, by studying the word, fellowshipping with one another, and praying for one another. We do this in the homes of our small group leaders. Acts 2:42-47 gives us a beautiful picture of church growing together in the Word, fellowshipping with one another throughout the week, and living life on a mission together for the fame of the gospel. Our small groups are designed to grow in biblical community with one another. To learn more about our groups in Cartersville, email Joe Burrows, our campus pastor.
FPC Cartersville is led by a team of qualified men, called elders or Pastors. We believe that the plurality of elders is the highest governing body of leadership of the local church. They are under shepherds who lead the flock, as they are being led by the Chief Shepherd, King Jesus ( see Acts 20:28, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, and 1 Peter 5:1-5). We are currently led by a team of executive elders and by a local plurality of elders at our Cartersville campus. That elder team is made up of a campus pastor and lay pastors.
