Denied the Right to Teach Our Children

Written by Kelly on July 27th, 2015

Will we be denied the right to teach our children the greatest commandment?

If you were going to teach your children one commandment from all of scripture, what would you teach them? In Matthew 22:36-38, a Pharisee once asked Jesus the question, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” Jesus responds with these words, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all you mind. This is the great and first commandment.” Read More

Does a family integrated church make us holy?

Written by Bret on June 20th, 2015

“Sanctification, by which our hearts and lives are conformed to the law, is a grace of God communicated to us…”  Walter Marshall, a great puritan preacher of the 1600’s, said these words in a book called The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification where he outlines the essential Biblical teaching regarding how we grow spiritually. Since my wife and I home educate our children and attend a family integrated church there is the possibility that we could rely on these wonderful things to carry us through the Christian walk; but as Walter Marshall said it is the grace of God that sanctifies us, not an external action, even if that external action is a good thing.

Rethinking Church Growth

Written by Kelly on April 4th, 2015

Wellsprings Church is a family integrated church 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

Family Integrated Youth Ministry

Written by Bret on March 7th, 2015

How does a family integrated church minister to youth or young adult singles who don’t have believing families or any family at all?

The modern church creates programs to reach a variety of sub groups, such as youth groups and singles ministries.  In a family integrated church model, these types of programs are non-existent so it is imperative to address the issue of how to minister to people who don’t attend with their family.

Is Your House Derelict?

Written by Kelly on January 15th, 2015

There once was a man who built a house for himself. He meticulously crafted every aspect, every detail he thought out, every element and color chosen to be a reflection of himself.

And it was a beautiful home.

Not long after though, his job required him to travel for an unspecified, but extended period of time. To ensure that his home was well cared for, he went looking for a tenant. He found another man who was, by trade, a skilled handy man, someone who he felt could manage the home and care for any needs that might arise. They struck a deal. In exchange for free rent, the man would take care of the home. He would be given whatever resources would be necessary to keep the home in the owner’s desired condition.

Then the owner left. Read More

Without Vision the People Perish

Written by Admin on November 1st, 2014

Proverbs 29:18 tells us “Where there is no vision, the people perish…”

We know this to be true in the business world.  Companies spend enormous sums of
money every year to craft their mission and vision statements.  They align
their goals and investments with these statements and tailor each employee’s
development plan around attaining the prescribed vision. Read More
