We believe… in one eternal God consisting of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe… in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth and sinless life.  In His death He provided a complete sacrifice for the sins of all humanity.  He was raised from the dead on the third day, ascended into Heaven, and now sits at the right hand of the Father interceding for His church.

We believe… in the imminent return of Jesus Christ, at which time the rapture of the church will take place.

We believe… in the personal work of the Holy Spirit, who convicts the world of sin and guides us to the truth of Jesus Christ.  He dwells within all who believe, leading them in righteousness and holiness; filling, empowering and gifting them for victorious living and fruitful service.

We believe… in the Holy Bible as the written, inspired and infallible word of God, containing all truth necessary for salvation and holy living.

We believe… in humankind’s need for a Savior. The Bible teaches that sin separates us from God, our Creator, and causes spiritual death.  If we want to restore our relationship with God and find life, both in this world and in eternity, we must repent of our sins, seek the forgiveness of God and trust in Jesus Christ as our personal Savior.  Through Christ we can find true life and be assured of a home in Heaven.  We cannot save ourselves by simply saying and doing good things.  We can be saved only by the grace of God through Jesus Christ.

LifeSpring Church is:

Incarnational: Just as God was in Christ, Christ is in the church.  When the unbelieving world looks at the church they should see Christ!  The church is the body of Christ and we should be doing what He did!

Contextual: The church works consistently to make God’s truth relevant and applicable to our changing world.  We practice a willingness to change our methods; yet, never changing the essential message.

Missional:  Life is a mission and every place we live and go is a mission field!  Just as Christ was “sent” by God, we are sent by Christ to live out His purposes for our lives and to reach a world who needs Him.

Transformational:  The church is a body of transformed people who are consistently being transformed into the image of Christ.  It is an ongoing process!  At the same time, the church is used by God to transform the world around us by helping people take steps of faith so they will come to know Him and grow to be more like Him.

Biblical:  The church is defined by and built upon the Word of God.  The Bible is His life changing, life giving truth.  We exalt God’s Word as the final authority for faith, life and salvation.

Spiritual:  The life of the church should never be focused upon or driven by money, politics, man-made tradition or human-devised purposes.  Instead, the church being focused on God’s word and led by God’s Spirit, should be spiritually empowered and motivated, while pursuing the purposes and desires of God.  The people of the church should be God seekers; people who seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

Multi-generational:  It is the privilege of the church to bring every new generation to the Spring of Life in Jesus Christ.  Despite the differences that may sometimes make us feel uncomfortable, we should be on a constant mission to reach the next generation.
