Pastors & Staff

Doug Knorr


Sally and I are thankful to God for His Faithfulness to us since 1975. We have been blessed with 5 children who all serve the Lord with their families. On any given weekend you may find our family enjoying the water or area festivals.

As a Bi-vocational pastor, I enjoy both the mission field at my marketing firm as well as leading ministry at LifePoint Bible Church. We came to LifePoint with a past ministry of singing, evangelism, and mens' ministry to relaunch LifePoint church with a fresh vision and clear mission.

The mission is two-fold, to reach the lost who desperately need Jesus Christ and to disciple each one so that we may continue to grow spiritually stronger and deeper. 2 Peter 3:18 says, “Grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

LifePoint’s DNA is founded in Matthew 22:37-39, that we will love the Lord with our entire being, and then through the power of God, the Holy Spirit, sacrificially love each person so they may be won to Christ.

God has given us a very special church that encourages and lifts one another up daily. We would like to invite you to consider joining us at LifePoint.
