What is Meadow's Vision? +
Vision is not about reality or what is. Vision is all about our dreams and aspirations or what could be.
At Meadow Spring Church, we envision our sharing the good news of Christ’s death and resurrection with thousands of disinterested and dissatisfied people, many of whom will accept Him as their Savior and be baptized.
We envision celebratory worship services that bring the Bible to life through engaging worship, use of technology, culturally relevant arts, and real-life messages that address today’s needs and issues.
We envision welcoming all people including those who are hurting and wounded from addictions, painful pasts, and life brokenness.
We envision developing all our people – new believers as well as established believers – into mature, faith-strong, servant minded followers of Christ through people-friendly worship services, kids and youth classes, special events, small groups, and recovery ministries.
We envision a ministry to children and teenagers which is Biblically-focused, fun, energizing, relationship based, and connects with the disinterested and dissatisfied.
We envision helping and equipping all our people – youth as well as adults – so that they serve Christ effectively in some ministry either within or outside Meadow Spring. Our goal is that every member be a minister.
We envision members who are excited about Christ, experience healing in their family and social relationships and marriages, and grow together in love.
We envision becoming a church of small groups where our people model biblical community: a safe place where we accept one another and are accepted, love and are loved, care and are cared for, encourage and are encouraged, forgive and are forgiven, and serve and are served.
We envision recruiting, training, and supporting many people as short-term missionaries, full-time missionaries, and church workers all over the world.
We envision a central facility that will accommodate our ministries for worship services, youth and kids classes, various adult Bible studies and classes, prayer, and other meetings.
We envision a multi-site ministry where we have one central and permanently owned facility but reach and minister to thousands of people through services and ministries being conducted in other locations.
This is our dream – our vision of what could be. Join us on Sundays and be a part of this dream..
What are the core beliefs of Meadow? +
WE BELIEVE the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, in its original writings, is infallible and inerrant. We believe in the verbal plenary inspiration of the Bible and that Jesus Christ is the central and supreme subject throughout. It is the foundation for all conduct and life-style in our daily lives. - 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
WE BELIEVE in one supreme God Who exists and Who is far greater than man. God is one in essence, but eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God the Father is ultimately sovereign in rule, creation and providence. - Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14
WE BELIEVE Jesus Christ is the living eternal Word of God and the only begotten Son of God. He was fully God and fully man. His sinless life and substitutionary death on the cross was satisfaction for God for the penalty of sin. On the third day, He rose bodily and confirmed His deity and the promise of eternal life. He is the only mediator between God and man and is the Head of the Church. -John 1:1-3,14; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; 1 Timothy 2:5; 1 Peter 3:18
WE BELIEVE the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift(s) when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily. - 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 5:18; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25
WE BELIEVE that man was originally created in the image of God, to bring glory to God, have fellowship with God and fulfill His purpose. However, man chose to disobey the revealed will of God and fell into sin. Man no longer accepts or understands God and is dead in his sin, incapable of choosing or doing that which is good and acceptable to God. He is totally lost and apart from salvation in Jesus Christ, is destined to eternal death and judgment. - Genesis 1:26; Genesis 3; Romans 3:23; 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-3; Hebrews 9:27
WE BELIEVE salvation from sin and its penalty is only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. One is saved by grace and grace alone. It is a free gift of God and can in no way be a result of any work or merit on the part of man. It is given by God and God alone. There is no salvation apart from Jesus Christ. - John 14:6; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9
WE BELIEVE all who have trusted in Jesus Christ for salvation make up the universal Church. This is a spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and had its beginning at Pentecost. The local church is a small physical assembly of believers gathered together for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission through intentionally pursuing the lost, worship, teaching the Word of God, fellowship, prayer, equipping Christians for service, unity and knowledge of Christ, and encouraging each other looking forward to the coming of Christ. - Acts 2:42-47; Ephesians 4:4-16
WE BELIEVE believer's baptism and the Lord's Supper are the two ordinances committed to the local church to follow. Baptism being an important step of obedience following salvation as a testimony of one's new life in Christ. The Lord's Supper is a memorial symbolizing the death of Jesus Christ of which all true believers should share in. - Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
WE BELIEVE that because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security. - John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10,14; 1 Peter 1:3-5
WE BELIEVE people were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. - John 3:16; 14:17; Romans 6:23; 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; 1 Corinthians 2:7-9
WE BELIEVE and hold to a Biblical definition of traditional marriage as found in the Creation account of Genesis 2:21-25. With this understanding, we believe these Bible verses and others such as 1 Corinthians 7:1-3 clearly articulate that marriage is a union between one man and one woman.
