WHO WE ARE: A LIFE-GIVING CHURCH
The Fountain of Living Waters belong to the larger family of Foursquare Churches. We want to be known as a life-giving church serving the communities of Phelan, Wrightwood, Pinon Hills and surroundings with the life that Jesus Christ gives.
In the Bible, the Lord Jesus said that he has come so that we all may have life and have it more abundantly (John 10: 10). After his death, resurrection and before his ascension, he gave his disciples and also us today, the mandate to extend his abundant life to those around us.
Thus our passion is to to allow the life of Jesus to flow through us individually and collectively into the lives of those around us.
WHAT WE DO: PRAY – REACH OUT – TRAIN
As a life-giving church our mission is to Prayerfully Reach out and Train disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit:
PRAY: We practice and teach others to practice constant and unbroken intimacy with God through private and corporate prayer. We are a House of Prayer! We pray for one another and we pray for our community, believers and unbelievers alike.
REACH OUT: We reach out to every person within, and also outside of our communities with the love of Christ. We do this not only by introducing people to the Lord Jesus by the preaching of His gospel to every person, but also through acts of kindness that cater to their physical needs. Those that respond to the Gospel are invited to enter into a discipleship relationship with the Lord.
TRAIN: We also provide the opportunity to every person to be progressively transformed into the image of Jesus Christ and trained to do what Jesus did. all that as we depend on the leadership and the power of the Holy Spirit.
When you join the Fountain we’ll take you through our discipleship process. You’ll be assigned with a Coach with whom you’ll meet once a week. Marriage is not about the wedding. Even though wedding is a great time of joy, marriage is what happens when the wedding guests leave. marriage is when the real stuff happens. No one will ever say I did the wedding that’s it. Ill just go back and live as a single person!
The same way, receiving Christ is just the beginning. You now must be trained to obey Jesus’ commandments and do what he did. This will lead to deep transformation in your life and your learning how to live out your new life. This is called discipleship.
For those desiring to go deeper in doctrines, ministry, and leadership after their initial discipleship training, we also offer classes in our institute called Ministry Training Institute. Registrations open in August and Classes start in September and last 9 month. Contact us if you have any questions.
