At Clear Springs, we’ve adopted this mission statement: Building a Lasting Faith in Christ by Serving. Our goal is to be a church family that introduces you to the truth of the Good News and offers you a personal relationship with Christ. A church that helps you take the words of Jesus and apply them to your life, making decisions guided by God’s Word.
Building – This is like a construction project: not finished yet, but a work in progress. Philippians 1:6 reminds us that God will finish the good work that He starts in each of our lives!
A Lasting Faith in Christ – Our desire is to see life-changing faith produced that stands the test of time and trials. Jesus gave a picture of this in Matthew 7:24-27 as he told a story of a wise man who built his house upon the rock. When the storms of life came, the house did not fall because it was built on a solid foundation. Jesus said that foundation for our lives is hearing His words and then putting them into practice. If we want to have a lasting faith, then we have to learn God’s Word, begin to love God’s Word, and then live by God’s Word. Of course, as we do our part in this process, we recognize that it’s still a work of God – Jesus Christ died for us so that it could even become possible for us to live for Him and the Holy Spirit enables us to live as Christ-followers.
By Serving – We want to help you be successful in Building a Lasting Faith in Christ… As we work on this, it’s our aim to model what this looks like …by Serving. When we serve others, we are serving Jesus… and we’re modeling “a Lasting Faith in Christ” in the process. We will follow Jesus’ example. We will serve God first and foremost. We will serve others in the same, self-sacrificing way that God has served us. We intend to show God’s love in a way that literally makes a noticeable difference in the lives of others.
