Who We Are

LifeSpring is an amazing community of people walking in the love and grace of Jesus together, discovering the depth of a transforming gospel. We teach from the Scriptures, reach people where they are at, and believe that the Holy Spirit is more than just an idea. We are a congregation of all ages, with awesome childrens and youth ministries. LifeSpring is also making a difference in poor urban neighborhoods nearby, and building schools and doing clinics in rural Haiti. From our neighborhoods to the nations, we see God on the move...

Our Services

What are services like?
We cultivate a very unique blend of casual feel with a sense of sacred space as you walk from the cafe into our sanctuary. We start with a welcome and a couple of up-tempo songs. After that comes the ministry of the Word, followed by a time of reverent/passionate worship (people often raise their hands in our worship). Then we are led into communion with a bit of liturgy and people come to receive the bread, dip it, and draw near to God in it. We want people to be comfortable if they are new, but we also know that transformation requires that we experience God's presence for ourselves.

What is the community like?
Extremely warm and relational. Lots of laughter, no legalism, and an acceptance of the truth that everyone is a work in progress. Lots of passion, good friendships, and everyone always wondering and watching for what God is up to in our midst. Our leaders are real people, and we believe the community is only as solid as our openness and integrity with one another (so no church politics and no relational games).

What if I'm not a Christian?
Well, you must be looking at churches because you are spiritually hungry, and if you are, we are a community you can walk into and know you'll be welcomed as you are. We aren't about religion, so if you're already burned out on that, no worries. We are about a Father who sees that His kids have lost their way, who humbled himself to become on of us, and then dies and rose so that we could be resurrected into new men and women. It's about being more whole and more free, which comes with a side of joy and hope. Just come.
