Connection Pointe Christian Church

Connection Pointe Christian Church

Our History & Beliefs

Founded in 1837 

Connection Pointe was founded in 1837. The first congregation met in homes around Brownsburg and eventually in the town’s first schoolhouse. Our first minister, Thomas Lockhart, helped construct the first church building, which was made entirely of logs. In the next 100 years the church would not only grow through many building projects, but also in its outreach to the community and world. 

Growth and Change

In 1975 the church completed a new building in the center of Brownsburg (where the current town hall is today). In 1986, Pastor Steve Reeves became the 35th Senior Pastor. Under his leadership the church experienced consistent growth, from a congregation of 250 to more than 4,000. 

Location & Name

The church relocated to its current location in 2001 and the chapel and gym were added in 2005. Brownsburg Christian Church became Connection Pointe Christian Church in 2006, representing our mission to connect people to Jesus and each other. 

Lead Pastor

In November of 2017 John Dickerson was welcomed as the 36th Lead Pastor of Connection Pointe. Since then God has blessed Connection Pointe with continued growth. 


Connection Pointe is a unique, multi-generational church with an extraordinary vision for the future, over 4,000 people attending weekend services.

Our Purpose

Connecting people to Jesus and each other. 


  • We are an independent, nondenominational church. We believe the Bible to be divinely inspired and reliable (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
  • All people have sinned and need forgiveness. Jesus Christ was virgin-born, sinless, died on the cross for our sins, was raised from the dead on the third day and is coming again (Matthew 1:18; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; John 14:3).

  • Salvation is a free gift, bestowed by God's grace and received by faith (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • Immersion in water of a professed believer is Bible baptism (Acts 8:36-39) and such baptism is symbolic of Christ's death, burial and resurrection (Romans 6:1-4). A believer's salvation is secured by Christ alone (John 10:27-28).

  • The church is the bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:25-33) and the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12).
  • The local church is governed by Godly men, known as elders or bishops (Titus 1:5).
  • The purpose of the church on earth is to fulfill the last command of Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20).
  • Christians are endowed with spiritual gifts which enable them to serve in the church (Ephesians 4:12).
  • The Holy Spirit, which every believer receives at conversion (Ephesians 1:13-14), leads and guides us.


What does the church believe about baptism?

We believe the Bible teaches that baptism is a demonstration that you have accepted God's grace by putting faith in Jesus Christ. As soon as you acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior, baptism by immersion is the next step to show your obedience to Him. Find out more about baptism here
