What We Believe

"Pentecost is not a denomination, it is a real and an authentic experience given by God."
Pastor J. Kurtis Burton

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of The Turning Point Church - Madison, TN based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living.
II Timothy 3:15-17


There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.

The Fall of Man

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and sinned entered into the world.  Because of this everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9

The Good News

The good news is that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection).
I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4


Salvation is found through repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance.
Acts 2:38; Acts 8:12, 14-17; Acts 10:44-48; Acts 19:2-6

Christian Living

As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today.
Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10.

The Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death.
 I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15
