Who We Are

About Us & Beliefs

Greater Springfield is a congregation rooted in the love of God and dedicated to the worldwide transformation of people as we Seek, Save, Support, Shape and Serve. We see our mission to be “Preparing the Total Man”:

  • Seeking to aggressively search for, find and recruit persons who are apart from Christ, lost, dead in sin and living in fear and often without hope.
  • Save – we the church will create an environment in which individuals are offered an opportunity and encouraged to claim their salvation.
  • Support – we the church will embrace and nurture individuals & families by providing a system of services and ministries.
  • Shape – we will strive to educate, empower and equip persons to maximize their potential by living out their created purpose in Christ.
  • Serve – we will encourage and provide opportunities for individuals and the church to use their time, talents and gift throughout the community, state, nation and the world to share the bountiful blessing of God with others.
  • WE BELIEVE . . .

    There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self- existent - one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

  • The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
  • The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God's Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God's Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people.
  • We are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit, convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
