Living Springs is here to help every person be transformed through faith and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We strive to be a community where all can thrive in faith, family, and fellowship!
The Bible is God’s message to humanity (II Timothy 3:16).
The family is God’s invention and we seek to bring families together, not separate them (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Ephesians 6:4;Titus 2:3-5).
We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself as Father; through His Son, in redemption; and as the Holy Spirit, by emanation (I Corinthians 8:6; Ephesians 4:6; II Corinthians 5:19; Joel 2:28)
God came to earth in His Son to win the world to Himself (II Corinthians 5:19; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 2:5).
Believers enter the redeeming plan by turning from sin, taking on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in baptism, and receiving His Spirit with the experience of a language given from heaven (Acts 2:4, 38; 19:1-6).
