Doctrinal Statement

VISION

The Spring of Life Church is called to glorify God by accurately knowing and enjoying Christ, and to proclaim and live the truths of the Gospel to reach the world!


STATEMENT OF FAITH

We are an evangelical and Gospel-centered church. We hold to the Westminster Confession of faith and Catechism as a statement of faith and practice. We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truths and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice. 
(2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21, Hebrews 4:12)

We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, Romans 1:1-4)
 
We believe God created male and female in his image and that Adam sinned and thereby incurred the judgment of both physical death and spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God. (Genesis 1:27-28, Genesis 3, Romans 3:23)
 
We believe that Jesus Christ, who is the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is the true God became true man united in one person forever. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose in bodily form from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of God the Father, He now is our High Priest and Mediator. (John 1:1, Matthew 16:13-20, 1 Corinthians 15:1-8)
 
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him. 
(1 Corinthians 3:16, Ephesians 2:21-22, Galatians 5:22-23).
 
We believe that Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations. 
(Matthew 29:16-20, Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 14:20-26)
 
We believe that Jesus Christ will return, in visible bodily form, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
(John 14:3, 1 Thessalonians 4:16, Revelation 22:20)
