The concept of Centerpoint Christianity briefly stated is:

Christianity from the centerpoint outward.

Christianity from the climax forward.

This blog constitutes concepts for a new view of Christianity that begins with what is foundational and moves forward from that point. It is based on the assumption that we are being pulled towards something unseen and pushed from a place that once was.

What Centerpoint Christianity attempts to do is bypass some of the constraints imposed by metanarratives by using the life of Christ and particularly the climactic actions of Christ as beginning points.

It supports the conviction that God is essentially timeless. From this beginning point we endeavor to move outward from the definitive moment of the parousia (visitation) of Christ and forward to the future which functions as a type of magnet to "what can be--and is coming".

When we begin at the life of Christ and move outward as from the centerpoint of a web, rather than in a linear timeline of history, another wide picture emerges.

more--sacred space

There's more that rises in the morning
Than the sun
And more that shines in the night
Than just the moon

It's more than just this fire here
That keeps me warm
In a shelter that is larger
Than this room --the late Rich Mullins

We long for more than what traditional Christianity gives...because we are made for more.

I know 'exactly' what you mean. Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but its there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?—Morpheus in'The Matrix'

'We have been told not to yearn but to be satisfied, to have conclusions, to be content...but we were made to long to be complete, to yearn for the eternal, to want, seek, desire--more.'--Daryl Underwood

'If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather the wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.'--Antoine de Saint Exupery
