We Want People
to Know Jesus
Fountain of Life Center is a place where everyone is welcomed, people can meet Jesus, and believers can engage in life-giving community. We believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with Christ, discover their gifts and use them for Him.
The Fountain of Life Center exists to reach people with the Gospel and equip them to be fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
We will be a multiplying church multiplying disciples, leaders, and locations.
Holy Spirit Empowerment
We desperately seek the power of the Holy Spirit, the only means by which we can fulfill the great commission.
We actively share in Christ’s mission to reach those outside our church.
We desire to create a safe place where people are accepted regardless of their
past or present circumstances.
We reflect the character of Christ who came not to be served, but to serve.
We desire to love God with our whole being, and extend that love to those around us.
