Our Beliefs

This is the heart of Springs. We think of our church as a family, and we love to laugh and enjoy life together. We spell laugh differently (LAF) to help us remember these three things:

L stands for love.
As a church we strive to love one another the way that God loves us. His love is unconditional and is best described in
1 Corinthians 13 (The Message): Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first,” doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end.

A stands for accept.
No one is perfect and we are all at different places in our walk with God. When we choose to accept each other where we are, we allow God to change us and help us grow.

F stands for forgive.
Will someone at Springs say or do something to hurt or offend you? Probably. Just like life, church is filled with imperfect people. Because we all make mistakes, we all need to learn to forgive. Jesus taught us to forgive because when you forgive others, you actually free yourself. 

We’ve noticed that some of the happiest people are the ones that love, accept and forgive quickly. So join us at Springs and learn to LAF along with us!

How would your world change if you regularly experienced the miraculous? And what if this happened everywhere you went—in a way that attracted people to Jesus? It wouldn’t just make a difference in your world...it would make the world different.

It might sound too good to be true...but that’s the Spirit Contemporary life.

While working as a first responder in an ambulance, Leon Fontaine longed to see God’s power at work outside the four walls of the church. He learned through many life-changing experiences that we can all unlock the miraculous in a way that works anywhere—at home, in a hospital, at work—with anyone!

The Spirit Contemporary way of life involves communicating with others as Jesus would...using their language, stories, and settings. Leon draws on biblical truth and personal stories to reveal how this dynamic first-century faith can be yours when you live so in tune with God that you’re guided in ways that are both natural and supernatural. The Spirit Contemporary Life reveals the key to living an empowered life—one that connects your day-to-day existence with God’s supernatural power.
