Welcome to Turning Point Church of Galveston's "What We Believe" page. Here, we will dive deep into the core beliefs and values that define our community and shape our faith. As a church dedicated to serving Galveston and fostering a strong sense of community, our beliefs provide a foundation for all that we do.
The Nature of God
At Turning Point Church of Galveston, we firmly believe in the existence of one true God who is eternal, all-powerful, and fully sovereign. We recognize God as a triune being, existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This belief serves as the cornerstone of our faith, inspiring awe, reverence, and gratitude in our worship and daily lives.
The Bible holds a central position in our faith community. We believe it to be the infallible and inspired Word of God, providing guidance, wisdom, and the revelation of God's plan for humanity. Our commitment to studying and applying the teachings of the Bible allows us to grow in our relationship with God and navigate life's challenges.
Salvation through Jesus Christ
As followers of Jesus Christ, we firmly believe in His atoning sacrifice on the cross as the means of salvation for all humanity. Through His death and resurrection, we have the opportunity to receive forgiveness of sins, experience new life, and enjoy a personal relationship with God. This foundational belief empowers us to live with hope, purpose, and assurance of eternity with Him.
The Holy Spirit
The presence and work of the Holy Spirit play a vital role in our faith community. We believe in the ongoing ministry of the Holy Spirit, who empowers, convicts, and guides believers. His indwelling enables us to live transformed lives, exhibit spiritual fruit, and participate in the spiritual gifts bestowed upon the Church.
As part of the body of Christ, we embrace the importance of the Church in our faith journey. We believe in the unity of believers, gathering to worship, support, and encourage one another. Our commitment to community and society drives us to actively engage in serving, loving, and making a positive impact on Galveston and beyond.
