We desire to be a community that lives by faith, is known by love, and is a voice of hope. These characteristics prevail in and through the heart of the good news, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Following Jesus is a lifelong, day-by-day endeavor of faith and obedience, challenge and opportunity, surprise and joy, which is why we gather as a church and do everything that we do– together.
People come to Wellspring from all different places in life. We invite you to join us on a Sunday morning or at special event. It would be an honor to have you as our guest.
At Wellspring, you will find:
Sunday morning services are a kind of home base at Wellspring– a place where we all gather, worship God through song, respond to what God is doing among us, and learn from the Bible. On any given Sunday, you’ll meet folks who have been in church their whole lives, people here for the very first time, and everything in between; so you should feel comfortable to simply come as you are.
We believe that because of Jesus, everyone can experience forgiveness, freedom, and wholeness. However, we also believe that we are meant to partner with God to extend this peace and healing to every part of our world– business, education, the arts, families and relationships, and everything else you can imagine. This day-by-day of following Jesus has a lot of ups-and-downs, so we seek to do it together.
We share life together in many different ways, we invite you to explore them by browsing through our website. A few highlights that may be especially interesting to newer individuals and families are outlined below
We desire to be a community that lives by faith, is known by love, and is a voice of hope. These characteristics prevail in and through the heart of the good news, known as the gospel of Jesus Christ. At the very core of God’s identity rests two intertwined qualities: God’s total goodness and limitless creative capacity. This the source of our faith, love, and hope and is the reason we can all walk in forgiveness, freedom, and wholeness.
This peace, which overcomes evil, is possible because of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. We gather on Sunday mornings to worship and thank God for this and for all of who God is. Our desire is to spend time with each other in the presence of God, who meets, heals, teaches, and directs us. This is a powerful and amazing exchange.
Through it, God’s goodness and love transforms our lives, and we partner with God to transform the world. Around Wellspring, we like to say it is about “encountering the depths of God’s presence, and releasing the flow of God’s Kingdom.”
