OUR PASTORS & STAFF
Life Springs Church exists to populate heaven with the people of Lee County and beyond. Life Springs Church - Western Harnett Campus is the first campus of the beyond. LSC strives to accomplish that goal by helping people Discover the Love of Jesus, then Develop the Character of Jesus, and then begin to Deliver the Message of Jesus. We call this our 3-D Mission.
There are many ways we seek to accomplish this goal, but it all starts with connecting with people. People are why LSC exists. In fact, we built this church for people like you! No matter your age, financial position, how you’re dressed, what you’ve done, if you’re pretty or not, if you talk to imaginary friends or not... you are welcome here!

What Do we Believe:
About the Bible... We believe the Bible is God's Word to humanity. It is the inspired and the only infallible, authoritative, complete, Word of God. As such, it should be viewed as the "owner's manual" for life. (2 Timothy 3:16) About God... We believe there is one God who is the creator and ruler of the universe; eternally existing in three personalities, i.e. Father, Son and Holy Spirit
(1 John 5: 7-8)
About Jesus Christ... We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is coequal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless life (Hebrews 4:15) and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all humanity (John 3:16). He rose from the grave three days later demonstrating His power over death, hell and the grave. He ascended to the Father where He prays for us (Hebrews 7:25, 1 Timothy 2:5), is preparing an eternal place for us (John 14:1-4) and will come again for us (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17).
About a Relationship with God... We believe all humanity needs forgiveness from sin (Romans 3:23) in order to enjoy a full life now and to share eternity with God. We believe this forgiveness is available through God's free gift of grace (Ephesians 2:8-10), through trusting what Jesus Christ has done for us on the Cross (Romans 10:9-10) and by the power of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:22). We believe this relationship with God is essential to enjoy the wonderful realities of heaven and to avoid the painful realities of an eternal hell. (John 5:24,28-29 and Philippians 2: 9-10).
About Water Baptism and Communion... We believe water baptism is an important part of the Christian experience. It is a public testimony of having established a relationship with Christ by faith (Mathew 28:19; Colossians 2:12). We believe communion is a sacred moment in the life of a believer
and it reminds him or her of God's grace through Jesus Christ.
About Christian Living... We believe when a person accepts God's free gift of Grace, they are regenerated and a new life in Christ begins (2 Corinthians 5:17). The goal of this new life is to be transformed into a life of Christ-like character (Romans 12:1-2). However, the supreme evidence of Christian discipleship is not that we keep all the rules, but rather that we have love for one another (John 13:35).
About the Holy Spirit... We believe all believers should be filled with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:18). Believers can expect results in the form of power to live out their Christian commitments, and in the discovery and use of their spiritual gifts (Acts 1:8, Ephesians 3:19-20).
About the Church... We believe it is God's intention the Christian life be lived out in community with other members of the church which form Christ's Body (Ephesians 1:20-23, Hebrews 10:25, Proverbs 27:17). We believe God established the church as the institution through which His wisdom is shown (Ephesians 3:10), and in which His Spirit dwells (Ephesians 2:19-22).
