WellSpring Community Church - Consider the Source http://www.welcometowellspring.com en-us ©2018 WellSpring Community Church Razorplanet Feed Generator 0.1.2 Mon, 09 Jun 2014 09:30:00 -0500 Mon, 09 Jun 2014 09:30:00 -0500   As we look at the landscape of our area we recognize that there are a large number of churches and that each church is distinctive as God gifts them to reach a sector of the world through the gathered body of Christ.  Over the past seven years, as WellSpring has begun to mature and become the faithful hands and feet of Christ in this community, the Lord has clarified our distinctives by developing the passions that drive this ministry.  Over the next 5 weeks this sermon series will discuss the sources or our strength and the motivating passions of our ministry.  Our name comes from the story of the women as the well where Jesus tells her "anyone who believes in me a wellspring of living water will flow from them" and we know that the source of this WellSpring is Jesus Christ. However, there are several others sources of strength and passion that run through this central source, like a river is really a culmination of several tributaries that come together to make it flow in greater capacity.  We will look at the five main sources that drive all aspects of ministry at WellSpring:  1) Prayer, 2) The Word of God, 3) The Holy Spirit, 4) Missionary discipleship, and 5) The "Whosoever" concept.  Come join us as we consider the source.  http://media1.razorplanet.com/share/515188-8879/resources/564809_ConsidertheSourcemainslide.png WellSpring Community Church - Consider The Source - An Overview of the Values that Make WellSpring Thrive http://www.welcometowellspring.com - http://media1.razorplanet.com/share/515188-8879/resources/ 300 300 Consider the Source - part 4 - Missionary Discipleship The other sources are precious - Prayer, The Word of God, and The Holy Spirit, but in Missionary Discipleship we find our purpose for being here!  The task of reaching the world is NOT finished yet - The world is NOT reached with the good news of Christ.  Therefore, we have to focus our attention on becoming an army of missionaries both praying and serving those who continue the work of Christ in the world.  As we look at the book of Revelation chapter 5, we see several important theological truths.  First, God is in control.  Second, God is concerned about the lost and unreached. Third, we see God's commission to us all. Fourth, we see God's costly choice in Christ. This all leads us to ask the question, "What shall we do?"  Join us as we consider the source.

There is no possible way that a person can be ready to do all that God has imagined for them without knowing and learning the Word of God. Consider this source with us today.
