OUR MISSION, VISION & APPLICATION

 

Turning Point Church exists to establish a culture of grace, hope and restoration, in the Triad and throughout the world!

 

The purpose and vision of Turning Point Church is summed up in 2 Corinthians 5:16-21

“So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Here Paul mentions three things that are important to the foundation of who we are as a church:

1) a MINDSET of reconciliation.
We have to change the way that we see people. NO ONE is “too far gone” because there is nothing that God can’t or won’t forgive. We must see every person as we once were… a restoration story waiting to happen.

2) a MESSAGE of reconciliation.
God is trusting us to deliver a clear and concise message. God’s power is supreme, His creation is astonishing, His presence is astounding, His ways are resolute, His word is absolute, His wrath is fierce, His justice is swift, His judgment is final… Yet it’s God’s kindness that leads men to repentance.

3) a MINISTRY of reconciliation.
It’s important to have the right mindset and the right message… but we also have to DO something about it! TPC will be a church that loves the unlovable, reaches out to the undesirable, embraces the broken, stands with the hurting, welcomes the sinner, and serves them all.
