Statement of Faith
Wellspring has been formed as a community of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our greatest desire is to make Christ’s name great by being conformed to His image and living it out by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are a non-denominational church, which does not oppose other denominations, and believes that we all make up the Body of Christ.
We believe in one God and only one, living and true God, revealed in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe Him to be the personal, transcendent, sovereign Creator, and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth.
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, became the atonement for our sins by His death on the cross, was resurrected, ascended to the right hand of the Father and lives to make intercession on our behalf.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person equal with God the Father and Jesus the Son and of the same nature; that He bears witness to the Truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony, that He endues, empowers, guides, teaches convicts, sanctifies and helps the believer.
We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the scriptures and believe they are applicable for today. Therefore they should be exercised within biblical guidelines and the very foundation for their use is based on love and unity. We as believers are to earnestly seek the gifts for the purpose of glorifying God and building up the body of believers.
We believe the Holy Bible, the Old and New Testament to be the infallible Word of God. Written by men supernaturally, inspired by the Holy Spirit.
We believe the devil or Satan was once a good and great angel that through his own ambition rebelled against God and fell from heaven with a third of the angelic host; that he is the enemy of God and the tempter of man; he is the prince of the power of the air. He will one day experience his final defeat at the hands of the Son of God and eternal judgment in hell, a place prepared for him and his angels.
We believe that all people are by nature, separated from God and are responsible for their own sin, but salvation and forgiveness through the shed blood of Jesus Christ have been freely offered to all by His grace. By repenting from sin, receiving Him as Lord and Savior, that person is instantly born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit. That person becomes a child of God and a part of the Body of Christ and will spend eternity in heaven with the Lord.
We believe the church to be a gathering of Christ’s followers who through worship, the teaching of the Word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit, purpose to know Him and fulfill the call of the Great Commission.
We believe in the ordinances of the church, water baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Water baptism – immersion in water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and is symbolical with His death burial and resurrection. Lord’s Supper - a remembrance of Christ’s death, resurrection and His second coming.
