Jesus was the ultimate servant leader. He served us when he saved us by dying on the cross in our place. As Christ-followers, we believe we were saved to serve – to serve God and to serve others. When we serve others unconditionally and put the needs of others ahead of our own, we’re demonstrating the love of God in action. When we do this together, we become the arms and feet of Jesus on earth – and accomplish far more together than we ever could on our own.
We believe that every Christ-follower need genuine faith-filled friendships and a place to belong. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 tells us that these authentic friendships strengthen our faith, offer support through difficult seasons of life, and provide spiritual warmth when our hearts grow cold. We value being a church family that helps us all benefit from investing in authentic friendships.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word – the guide to living out God’s will in our lives. In order for it to impact us, we have to learn God’s Word, begin to love God’s Word, and then live according to God’s Word – making decisions guided by God’s Word as led by the Holy Spirit.
No one should stop growing spiritually after salvation. At Clear Springs we believe that Christians are and should be on a never ending journey to learn more about God, grow closer to him, and to grow deeper and deeper in our knowledge of him.
We believe that nothing is a more clear indicator of our personal faith in Christ than how we live out our faith (or lack of faith) within our families. God created the family before He created the church. He simply organized the church to help strengthen the faith of each Christ-follower so that we can be better equipped to live out that personal faith within our families.
