The best way that I can describe these two is that they have to do with our worldview - our insight into everything!  Come join us as we seek to make our worldview centered on faith and love and ask ourselves some tough questions about how to do that.  If we will, we will know HOW to fight the good fight of faith.

Join us as we discover the depth and wonder of these two amazing words - "Righteousness" and "Godliness" in terms of our relationship with God.   At the end of the message, we have two additions for your enjoyment.  First, we have a song by our worship team under the leadership of our worship leader, Danna Beale. Second, we have a short and wonderful testimony from Don and Glenda Berberich about how The Father has healed Don from cancer.  Mon, 15 Jan 2018 09:30:00 -0600 http://www.welcometowellspring.com/_getmedia/49488.mp3 Fight the Good Fight of Faith - Part 1 - Flee these things... Fight the Good Fight of Faith - Part 1 - "Flee these things..." The Apostle Paul challenges Timothy to continue to grow closer and stronger in the faith.  In order to understand what it means to "fight the good fight" we have to look at the local context of verse 11.  From there we see the first step is to "flee" those things that can hold us back in our pursuit of a warrior walk with God.  In this sermon, we look at the local context of Chapter six of first Timothy and see the three things that Paul encouraged Timothy to flee before he can pursue the deeper walk with God.  Come join us as we are challenging ourselves to flee.  Mon, 08 Jan 2018 09:30:00 -0600 http://www.welcometowellspring.com/_getmedia/49486.mp3
