ABOUT TURNING POINT CHURCH

STORY OF TURNING POINT CHURCH

 

In Matthew 16:18, Jesus said, "I will build my church."

 
A love for praising God through music was the seed that eventually gave birth to Turning Point Church Of League City (formerly Hosanna! Christian Center).  Jerry and Bonnie Hatfield were once part of a Gospel Quartet that not only sang, but also ministered to God's people.  After Brother Jerry received the Lord's call to pastor, he and Bonnie expanded their ministry by opening up their home for church meetings.  Five other families began meeting with them regularly in 1992, which marked the beginning of Hosanna! Christian Center.  However this little house church soon outgrew the Hatfields' living room and went on to meet in several temporary locations before coming to the present one in 1994.  In 2005, the Lord instructed Pastor Jerry Hatfield to change the name of the Church.  Turning Point Church Of League City was chosen because everyone reaches a turning point in their lives as God encourages them to become a Born Again Christian.


WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO US?

WHAT ARE OUR PRIORITIES?

 

The One True Triune God - Revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Praise - We were birthed in music and we love to use it in joyful praises to God!

Prayer - We pray without ceasing.  For example, every chair in our sanctuary - the chair YOU occupy - has been covered in prayer!  So expect to be blessed when you worship with us!

God's Word -  You'll hear it proclaimed in every message.  The Holy Scriptures are the verbally inspired Word of God, our infallible rule of faith and practice.

You - Our heart's desire is to see every person ministered to so they in turn can freely use their unique gifts to minister to others.

The Lord Jesus Christ - The Word made Flesh, born of a Virgin, sacrificed on the Cross as our perfect sin offering, raised bodily from the dead and is now exalted at God's right hand.  Salvation comes only through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His atoning Blood.


Jesus is the only reason for Turning Point's existence.
