What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer


The following are the core beliefs of Lifespring Foursquare Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines. These doctrines lie at the heart of historical Christian orthodoxy. They are fixed teachings that define us as Christians. Accordingly, while we welcome persons of all backgrounds and beliefs to participate in worship with us, adherence to these doctrines is a necessary prerequisite to becoming a leader at Lifespring Church. Expanded Treatments of these doctrines are provided further below on this page.


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons in one: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

Heaven and Hell

We believe that heaven is the habitation of the living God and the eternal home of born-again believers We also believe that hell is a place of darkness, deep sorrow and unquenchable fire, which was not prepared for man but for the devil and his angels; it will become the place of eternal separation from God for all who reject Christ as Savior.

The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit gives ministry gifts to believers; in other words, the Holy Spirit gives people special abilities for ministry. These gifts will build up groups of believers and help them mature in Christian faith. Further, Spirit-filled believers should show the spiritual “fruit” that has been given to them: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.


Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth. 

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and consists of all who have trusted the Lord Jesus Christ for their eternal salvation.

Baptism with the Holy Spirit

We believe that people who have been born again should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Himself was baptized and instructed His followers to be baptized. Baptism also confirms that Christ is the Lord and King in each believer’s life. We believe in observing the Lord’s supper, or communion, just as Jesus instructed. This means that born-again believers take the broken bread and the fruit of the vine as a remembrance and celebration of the new life that is theirs because of Jesus’ death on the cross and His resurrection. It is also looking forward to His return as triumphant King.


Do you know Him? Are you curious about this man they call Jesus? A lot of people know about Him, but have never gotten to know Him up close and personal. Jesus said the following things about himself: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” [Matt 11.28] “I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.” [John 10.10] “I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by me.” [John 14.6] At Lifespring, we are first and foremost about Jesus! Nothing compares to having a personal relationship with Him. He is everything you need. He brings forgiveness, freedom, hope, joy, strength and most importantly life to any man or woman who will come to Him in faith and welcome His living presence. We invite you to do that right now…give your life to Jesus and receive the life He has for you! If you haven’t already done so, we invite you to pray this prayer: “Heavenly Father, forgive me of my sins. Make me brand new. I believe you died for me and you rose again so I could live for you. Fill me with Your Spirit so I can follow you all my days. Thank you for new life. Today, I give you mine. In Jesus name, I pray.”

The Name: What’s “Foursquare” Mean?

Our name reflects the unchanging ministry of Jesus Christ and our mission to declare it worldwide. The four squares of our logo represent the four scriptural roles of Jesus as Savior, Baptizer With the Holy Spirit, Healer and Soon-Coming King.

What We Believe

The Holy Scriptures
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God: true, immutable, steadfast, and unchangeable [2 Timothy 3:16, 17].

The Eternal Godhead
We believe that God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the Three are coexistent, coeternal, and equal in divine perfection [1 John 5:7].

The Fall of Man
We believe that man, created in the image of God, by voluntary disobedience fell into the depths of sin and iniquity, bequeathing sin’s nature and consequences to all mankind, with their accompanying loss of intended meaning and purpose [Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12].

The Plan of Redemption
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, took our place, and with His life’s blood purchased the pardon for all who believe in Him [John 3:16; Titus 2:14].

Salvation Through Grace
We believe that salvation is wholly through grace; that no human righteousness or merit can contribute to our receiving God’s love and favor [Ephesians 2:8].

Repentance and Acceptance
We believe that, upon sincere repentance and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God through Jesus’ sacrificial death [Romans 10:6-10; 1 John 1:9].

The New Birth
We believe that the change that takes place in people at conversion is a very real one; that having received righteousness in Christ and having received of His Spirit, people will have new desires, interests, and pursuits in life [2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20].

Daily Christian Life
We believe that it is the will of God that those who have been born again grow in sanctification, become partakers of His holiness, and daily grow stronger in the faith, power, prayer, love, and service [2 Corinthians 7:1].

Water Baptism and the Lord's Supper
We believe that being baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is an essential response to Jesus’ command, testifying to His lordship as Christ and King [Romans 6:4]. We believe in observing the Lord’s Supper, receiving the broken bread and the fruit of the vine with joy and faith as we partake anew of the life and triumph of Christ’s Cross [1 Corinthians 11:24-26]

Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit empowers believers to exalt Jesus, to live lives of holiness, and to be witnesses of God’s saving grace; we expect the Spirit’s incoming to be after the same manner as that in which He came upon believers in the days of the Early Church [Acts 1: 5, 8; 2:4].

The Spirit-Filled Life
We believe that it is the will of God that believers walk in the Spirit moment by moment, serving the Lord and living lives of patience, love, truth, sincerity, and prayer [Ephesians 4:30-32; Galatians 5:16, 25].

The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit bestows enabling ministry gifts upon believers, and that these gifts will build up the Body of Christ through edification and evangelism[1 Corinthians 12:1-11]; as evidence of a Spirit-filled life, believers should show spiritual “fruit”: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance [Galatians 5:22-25].

We believe a Christians’ moderation should be obvious to others and that relationship with Jesus should never lead people into extremes of fanaticism; their lives should model that of Christ in uprightness, balance, humility, and self-sacrifice [Colossians 3:12, 13; Philippians 4:5].

Divine Healing
We believe that divine healing is the power of Jesus Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith; He, who does not change, is still willing and able to heal the body, as well as the soul and spirit in answer to faith [Mark 16: 17, 18; James 5:14-16].

The Second Coming of Christ
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent; the certainty of His coming and the fact that no man knows the hour of His coming prompt our evangelistic efforts; that the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven, the dead in Christ shall rise, and the redeemed will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air [Matthew 24:36, 42, 44; 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17].

Church Relationship
We believe that it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with a congregation of believers with whom we can worship God, observe the ordinances of Christ, exhort and support one another, labor for the salvation of others, and work together to advance the Lord’s Kingdom [Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:24].

Civil Government
We believe that civil government is by divine appointment and that civil laws should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God [Acts 4: 18-20; Romans 13:1-5].

We believe that all shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ: the redeemed to be delivered unto everlasting life, and the unrepentant unto everlasting punishment [Revelation 20:11, 12; 2 Corinthians 5:10].

We believe that heaven is the glorious habitation of the living God and the eternal home of born-again believers [John 14:2; Revelation 7:15-17].

We believe that hell is a place of darkness, deepest sorrow, and unquenchable fire, which was not prepared for man but for the devil and his angels; yet it will become the place of eternal separation from God for all who reject Christ as Savior [Matthew 13: 41, 42; Revelation 20:10, 15].

We believe that soul winning is the “one big business” of the Church on earth, and that every hindrance to worldwide evangelism should be removed [James 5:20; Mark 16:15].

Tithing and Offerings
We believe that tithing and offerings are ordained of God to sustain His ministry, spread the Gospel, and release personal blessing [Malachi 3:10; 1 Corinthians 16: 1, 2].
