Wellsprings Church is a family integrated church that is now starting its fourth year and every year we have been in existence we have seen a steady growth of families committing to our fellowship. Of those that have come, especially in the past couple of years, nearly all have come from other churches. Because of this, it would be easy for us to become the target of the negative criticism that our church has grown simply by attracting people from other churches. Read More

Our teaching theme for 2011 is: “A PEOPLE PREPARED.” The biblical concept behind this theme is found in Luke 1:17.
“And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
