Who We Are
LifeSpring Church is a brand new church plant coming to southwest Durham, launching January 26, 2020! In May 2019, Cresset Church located at 3707 Garrett Road voted to close down and to gift their property and their facilities to LifeSpring Church. Our team will be made up some of the former members of Cresset Church, but we are currently in the process of building that team as we grow closer to our launch next year.
Our prayer and our hope is that our church will live up to our name. Isaiah 43:19 says, "Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness, springs in the desert." LifeSpring Church is passionate about the newness and the fullness of life that is found in Jesus. We are passionate about being a source of light and life to the community that we are a part of. And we are passionate about the potential that each and every person has. Potential to change, and to change the world.
At LifeSpring Church our mission -- that is our main goal as a faith community -- is to help people reach their potential in Christ. We believe that every person has a God-given potential that can only be reached through the fullness of life that comes from Jesus Christ. We, as a church, are here to spur each other on toward our full potential in Christ Jesus, because we believe that our potential can only be reached together in a supportive Christian community.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Your values are the things that you believe are most important and most foundational in life. What you value will drive what you do and it will determine your priorities and how you live your life. There are many things that we can value. At LifeSpring Church we have identified three values that are most important and most foundational to who we are as a faith community and that will help us carry out our mission to help people reach their potential in Christ.
God's Word | Shared Life | Gospel Transformation
Jesus gave us an example of how to help believers realize their full God-given potential. At first, His disciples were a ragtag group of misfits destined to have little impact on the world around them. However, after three years with Jesus, they became individuals who displayed phenomenal character and were ready to change the world. As modern-day disciples, we encourage everyone to wholeheartedly pursue these practices and to include others in them:
Worship | Small Groups | Personal Devotions | Serving Others
As we pursue our full potential in Christ, both as a church family and as individuals, we should see fruit of that growth. We should see change. We believe that this growth will be marked, or characterized in the following ways:
