Our Foundational Beliefs
When WellSpring was founded as a non-denominational church, we realized that “non-denominational” is broadly defined among churches. Much of which we wish to say about our foundational doctrines cannot be captured briefly. We welcome any questions that you might have about what lies beneath or beyond these simple statements.
Who is God?
God is the creator of all things, the one true, eternal, and living God, the redeemer of all people through the Trinity. In Him we “live, move, and have our being” and know Him as our Father.
Who is Jesus Christ?
Through Jesus Christ God’s deity is revealed in bodily form to those who desire to know him and in Christ God offers forgiveness for sins through the death and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. Belief in and confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is required for salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)
Who is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is a person. We can grieve the Spirit when we do not trust Him to lead us (Ephesians 4:30). When we are born again, the Spirit comes and makes us God’s possession (Romans 8:9). Every believer is encouraged to be filled with the Holy Spirit to be equipped for service (Ephesians 5:18). The same Holy Spirit that lived in Jesus Christ and raised Him from the dead, lives in us- we are His dwelling place and by that same Spirit we are able to continue the ministry Jesus had here on earth in bodily form
What is scripture and truth?
The scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are inspired of God and are the Revelation of God to man. The infallible, authoritative Rule of Faith and Conduct. Preaching the Word will be central to the success of this Faith Family (II Timothy 3:15-17).
What is the Trinity?
The Eternal God reveals Himself to us Father, Son and Holy Spirit with distinct personal attributes but without division of nature, essence or being.
Creation and Salvation
God created humanity and even though humanity turned from God and chose their own way, God provided Man’s only hope of redemption through the shedding of blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is the Gift of God received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10)
