Discover Your Purpose.
Thank you for watching. We had some technical issues today and our worship service was plagued with electricity issues which impacted the quality of our recording. However, it did not affect the powerful message delivered by Pastor Eddie.
Our passage today is Acts 9:1-18.
In this message, we hear about Saul’s encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. At Lifepoint Hampton Roads, we believe that every person on the planet has been made in the image of God. And part of our purpose is to reflect the goodness of God. We can show goodness to others because we have been made in the image of God, though broken we may be.
Even though there is a brokenness in us, regardless of our shame, there is beauty. God wants to draw out our beauty, and purpose. God is not finished with us. As long as we have breath in our lungs, God has a purpose for us.
Are you ready to discover YOUR Purpose?

Our lead pastors, Eddie and Jessica Cole have had a heart for Hampton Roads for many years. While dating – more than 25 years ago! – they were visiting Jessica’s parents in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake and started dreaming about planting a church in the area.
It wasn’t until 2020, while Eddie was serving as a denominational Vice President in Minneapolis, that it became clear God was calling them to take a big leap of faith. They had helped others plant churches for years – now God began to confirm it was their turn. Within months they knew the time had arrived, they were supposed to plant the church they dreamed about in Hampton Roads.
Throughout their entire relationship, they have been doing ministry together. Most of this time was spent leading Salem Church in Staten Island, New York, and doing regional and national denominational work.
They are known for their passion for helping people experience the love and power of God. They have committed themselves to use all their God-given resources to help as many people as possible joyfully embrace and fulfill God’s purpose in their life.
Eddie earned a Doctorate in Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary and has two Master’s Degrees from Liberty Theological Seminary. Jessica is a graduate of Gateway Theological Institute and has a Bachelor of Science in Religion from Liberty University, as well as a Master’s Degree in Executive Leadership from the Liberty University School of Business.
