Wellspring Center is an online portal for the study and teaching of Spirit-empowered life and practicing creative Christianity.
Wellspring began its ministry in 2003 to teach Christian spiritual formation and help nurture the transformed life in Jesus in the power of the Spirit. Over the years we provided resources and tools to aid in this formation through retreats, workshops, publications. Our vision has been to create the space for the Holy Spirit to bring about renewal and conversion, not only to individuals, but to churches, to communities, and ultimately to the whole world.
We continue in this vision to inspire, encourage, challenge, engage, develop, and nurture all seeking to grow in the “spiritual blessings” in Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1)
In our formation, we have delved into the study of Spirit-empowered life discovering the riches of the gifts of the Spirit (Ephesians 4:1, Romans 12:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10, 28). The life of faith cannot be lived in our own power, but in and through the Spirit. Jesus as our Lord and Savior demonstrated this in the Gospels, showing us that we “may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
The Holy Spirit’s power makes us a new creation and continues to transform us. The Spirit fills and empowers us to live lives worthy of our calling, binds us together in one community, and sends us out to participate in the ongoing creative activity of God in Jesus Christ.
God’s creativity is expressive, incarnational, transformational, and trinitarian. We look all around us and we are fascinated by beauty, passion, abundance, and joy!
In this new era, our mission is to continue teaching the Spirit-empowered life in Jesus, so all may know the width, the depth and the breath of Isaiah 58:11,
Yahweh will guide you continually. The Lord will satisfy your soul in sun-glaring places; and invigorate your bones. You will become like a well-watered garden; a flowing well of water whose waters never deplete.”
Our ongoing ministry will focus on the following areas expanding on Psalm 103:1-5:
Bless Yahweh, my soul, and all within me, bless God’s holiness.
Bless Yahweh, my soul, and do not forget any of God’s well-dealings/blessings
Who is pardoning/forgiving/releasing all your depravity/evil,
Who is healing all your diseases/ailments/sickness,
Who is redeeming your life from ruin/decay,
Who is crowning you with benevolence and compassion,
Who is satisfying your future with good, So your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
