The following are the core beliefs of Living Springs based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
God the Father is the creator and sustainer of the universe. He loves us and wants what’s best for us, His children. We are most fulfilled when we realize this and accept it .
God the Son (Jesus) is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Through His life, death, and resurrection we are rescued from sin and given ultimate victory over physical and spiritual death.
God’s Holy Spirit lives within God’s people and helps them understand God, His Word, and each other. Being filled and changed by the Spirit is a lifelong process.
God is at work in the world and in the Church. We are called to join Him in His work.
A real church is a community of broken people whom God uses to meet each other’s needs, bear each other’s burdens, reach new people, make disciples, and impact our world.
A church made up of diverse people is evidence of Christ’s power to redeem, reconcile, and renew, and it beautifully models the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. No matter what our ethnicity, socio-economic status, age, ability, gender, or background, we find our ultimate identity as citizens of God’s Kingdom.
The Word of God is true and full of living power. God’s people don’t understand it fully or obey it perfectly, but we keep studying it because we know it is the ultimate authority for all of faith and life.
