Who We Are

U-Turn For Christ is a residential drug and alcohol program dealing with men who are seeking restoration from drug and alcohol addiction, through our Lord Jesus Christ. We are based entirely on the Word of God, the Bible, and get all counsel from it. It has been our experience that with a solid grounding in the Bible and good Christian living skills, numerous men have been able to become productive, vital members of their community. Our primary focus is to establish or strengthen a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only way to true freedom from the bondage of the sin of addiction.

 

What We Do

 

Phase 1

In Phase-1 of our program, participants spend a minimum of two months at one of our U-Turn for Christ Ranch locations. Participants stay in military-style quarters, one large room filled with bunks. This type of housing promotes healthy fellowship. “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend” (Proverbs 27:17). Throughout the day, participants are involved in morning devotions, daily chores, volunteer community service, evening Bible study, and nightly personal devotion time.

 

Phase 2

The second phase of the program is six months long, and comes with two possible paths to travel. Some return to work, pay a monthly donation, and attend church with first phase in the evening. Others are chosen to commit six months of service to the Lord, and are provided for by the ministry. This last choice comes with considerable sacrifice. Servants of Christ can be called on at all times to serve in many different ways. The six month period does not have to be the end. Many who return to work stay a year or more choosing a higher level of accountability and fellowship for their lives. In addition, many who have stayed on to serve in ministry are now serving at other facilities in the United States, and around the world.

 

 

What We Believe

 

  1. The only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ’s agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess, and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.

  2. In the inerrancy of Scripture-that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, are the inspired, infallible Word of God.

  3. God is eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  4. Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His substitutionary death on the cross, was bodily raised from the dead, ascended back to the right hand of the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.

  5. Worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.

  6. Worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship.

  7. Worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God, that He might instruct us how He should be worshipped.

  8. Worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshipping Him.

  9. In the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Scriptures. and that they are valid for today if exercised within the scriptural guidelines.

  10. That love is more important than the most spectacular gifts, and without this love all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.

  11. Legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage. Therefore, sexual activities such as, but not limited to, adultery, fornication, incest, homosexuality, pedophilia, and bestiality, are inconsistent with the teachings of the Bible. Furthermore, lascivious behavior, the creation, distribution and/or viewing of pornography, and efforts to alter one’s gender are incompatible with the Bible’s teachings.

  12. Marriage has been ordained by God. Therefore, we recognize marriage as exclusively the legal union of one man and one woman, in which such union is a lifetime commitment, in accordance with the Scriptures.
