FAITH SPRINGS - DEL RIO MINISTRIES, INC
STATEMENT OF FAITH
1. The Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains the answers to man's problems today. We believe that the Bible is God's Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our every day lives. 2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:20,21
2. There is one true God, who is the Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7
3. God is Love and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted. Psalm 68:5,6; 1 John 4:16
4. We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. Man was created in the image of God but separated from God by sin.
Without Jesus we cannot have a relationship with God. Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5
5. We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the 'new birth' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
6. Salvation cannot be earned by our own works, but we receive remission of sins by Christ's sacrifice for us, redemption through His shed blood.
7. Christ died on the cross to purchase our redemption, and He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died.
8. We believe in water baptism, as Jesus Himself taught and was baptized, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Matthew 28:19; Matthew 3:13-17; Romans 6:4
9. We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues. Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10
10. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. He helps empower the believer to develop the character of Christ and live every day in God's will. Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4
11. We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.
12. Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer. Healing includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual restoration. Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matthew 10:1
13. We believe the Bible teaches that hell is a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ. God's desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth. Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:16-18
14. We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
15. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised!
Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28
We believe that ALL Christians should be committed to bringing the Gospel of Christ to all Nations and all People! We currently do our part in that by planting churches, offering Ministry Support, and through Speaking, Music, Media, and Writing. At this time, our presence is primarily in the states of Oregon and Arizona, although we continue to operate around the world through the wonderful tools of media.

Welcome to Faith Springs Ministries!
Are you ready for a positive change in your life? Are you tired of searching for a 'rich and satisfying life?' God desires a personal relationship with you! That’s right, the Creator of this universe loves you, can’t stop thinking about you, and desires to have a direct relationship with YOU! It is only through that relationship that you will find an everlasting satisfaction in life. Our enemy; satan, the devil, thief, or whatever you choose to call him, continually seeks to destroy your life. Jesus came to stop him and to give us a great life! (“The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” - John 10:10 NLT) All we have to do is accept Christ and allow Him to work in us to accomplish his goals in our life. Faith Springs exist for the sole purpose of connecting people, like you, to Christ so that they can truly experience that ‘rich and satisfying life.’ This is the primary focus of our ministry; connecting people to a true relationship with Jesus Christ so that they may live the satisfied life that God created us to live.
