BECOME

More like Christ

BEYOND

The walls of our church and home

This is the discipleship pathway for covenant members of Wellspring to know where they are and where they are going. This is an easy way to achieve the mission and vision for every member, program, class, and event.

VALUES

GOSPEL TRANSFORMATION

Sanctification is the process of growing in Christ-likeness or holiness. Christ-likeness is a deepening of love, faith, service and obedience to Christ. Sanctification is the work of the Spirit in the believer.  However, sanctification requires an act of discipline and submission in the believer's life.

Romans 8:29-30; Philippians 1:6

SERVING

Wellspring members are to be about serving, looking to Christ as the ultimate picture of humble servanthood.  We desire for each member to be serving both within and beyond the walls of Wellspring.  Our mission is clear, we want to love others as Christ loves us; serving with hopes of sharing the gospel, so that people can experience the ultimate love of Jesus.

Matt 5:16, Gal 5:13, Mark 10:45

GOSPEL PROCLAMATION

Wellspring will uphold a high regard for Gospel Centered teaching.  This is the idea that the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ is the culmination of all scripture. The Gospel message affects all parts of the believers life. This value also reflects our high view of sharing the gospel individually with others.

2 Cor 5:11-21; 1 Cor 15:1-4

INTENTIONAL COMMUNITY

One of the greatest gifts Jesus has given the church is communion with one another through the gospel.  Intentional community is a commitment to be known and to know others.  Intentional community is loving and serving one another even when it gets hard. At Wellspring, small groups are a great avenue to belong to intentional community.

Hebrews 10:24-25; Acts 2:46-47

1 John 1:7

DISCIPLESHIP

This is the expectation that covenant members of Wellspring are constantly growing in their own discipleship process, along with organically and intentionally disciplining others.  This is the heartbeat of our church and the command of Jesus.

Matt 4:19-20; Luke 6:40

2 Tim 3:16-17; 1 Cor 11:1

CHURCH PLANTING

God has ordained the Church to be the main avenue in which the mission of expanding the Kingdom is to go forth.  We believe that participating in planting like minded churches is of utmost value in seeing the great commission accomplished.

Matt 28:18-20, Titus 1:5
