EXPERIENCING THE MOVE OF GOD IS THE POINT OF TURNING POINT
We know that the greatest thing about our church is GOD. Period. Apart from HIM, we are just people without a purpose. For every program we implement, for every outreach we plan, for every service we conduct, with all of our best efforts, nothing compares to what GOD can do in our lives in a single moment. Therefore, the center of our heart is to see GOD move – in every service, in every meeting, in every life. Because of all the things we may be able to do, only GOD can save us, heal us, restore us and change us.
The culture of Turning Point is not something we create. It’s not something we are attempting to discover or define. One simple truth describes the atmosphere and environment of Turning Point Church – the KINGDOM is our CULTURE. The Kingdom Culture shapes what and how we believe, how we serve God and each other, and how we operate in every area of life. In the midst of a trendy and ever-shifting American culture, it is the Kingdom Culture that remains true and constant. We have simply determined to do our best to seek first HIS KINGDOM and let all things be added.
HERE AS IN HEAVEN
Jesus prayed for the kingdom to come and the Father’s will to be done, here on earth as it is in heaven. In heaven, every ethnicity, every background, every color, every race, and every generation is represented. In order to be a truly healthy church, we believe that this picture of UNITY and DIVERSITY within our COMMUNITY is of utmost importance. In Christ we are one body, one blood type, with one purpose. It is our desire for Turning Point Church to look like heaven in this way.
ALL OF THE WORD IS FOR ALL OF US
Every word of the Bible is for everyone. There are no excuses and no exemptions. We strive to live by every principle and every promise for HIS purpose. Being a believer comes with the responsibility to not only hear the WORD OF GOD, but to whole-heartedly take action. We deeply honor HIS WORD and on it we place the highest value.
THERE’S ALWAYS ROOM FOR ONE MORE
Whether it’s a service, a LifeGroup, a serving team, an altar call – there’s always room for one more. One more visitor, one more friend, one more family member, one more heart changed, one more life transformed. That’s what it’s all about! GOD’S desire is for everyone to know HIM and be known by HIM – and that is our desire as well.
ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
Having a heart of thankfulness is the driving force for every relationship and every ministry at Turning Point. The attitude of gratitude is something we not only encourage, but practice in everything we do. GOD has chosen to use each of us – people who are not perfect. So, we can usually find something to criticize or complain about pretty quickly. But, we are also capable of finding something to compliment and commend. Therefore, we choose to speak life. To be a believer is to be grateful at all times.
FLEX AND FLOW
This is a principle we have operated in for years. The truth is that there are always things that happen that we didn’t plan for or didn’t expect. It happens in life and therefore it happens at church. How we respond in those situations is critical because it effects everything around us. Flex and flow is really a mindset to strike a balance between structure and spontaneity. It also represents how we approach our services by having the wisdom to plan and structure, while simultaneously being prepared to adjust to the spontaneous moments led by the SPIRIT OF GOD.
