Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God

Church and Community Focus

RICHMOND — A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. (Luke 6:45)

On the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. (Luke 8:15)

And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith. (Act 15:8-9)

And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised.)  (Hebrews 10:19-23 )

Upward Bound begins at Turning Point

Turning Point is a place in your life where you have decided to make the right turn and address the issues that have enslaved you with a life hindering addiction. It is a place where you can understand life controlling issues, how they develop, and the impact they have on individuals and their families. It is a place where you can just be you and realize how others are having some of the same problems you are having. It is a place where you can feel safe in sharing some of the most intimate and private things in you life. It is a place where you can be loved for who you are, and not be judged or condemned because of what you have become. It is a place where you can receive biblical truth about what is going on in your life, and how you can overcome it.
