Children are well-cared for in a loving, quality nursery and fun-filled SpringsKidz service.
  1. If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money.

Our Values

The Word of God

We believe that the written Word of God is to remain preeminent in all aspects of life and ministry. It is the standard and conviction maker, atmosphere setter and the core of what church and ministry is built upon.


Matthew 21:13 "My house shall be called a house of prayer." A healthy church must teach, preach, equip for and practice fervent prayer.

The Local Church

The local church is God's instrument on earth to fulfill the Great Commission through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.  We teach that the local church should be at the center of our lives as Christians. We seek to involve ourselves at every level at every age in the work of the local church.


We believe that worship is vital to our experience with God, just as is prayer and the Word. Our worship is not performance based. We teach that we should worship in spirit and truth as a whole hearted response to God's presence in the midst of His people.


We believe there that Godly character above natural gifts, talents, and abilities are the key to success in life and ministry. A person's character is developed through the Word of God, prayer, discipleship, a Christian worldview and how they respond to God in difficult circumstances. Our goal is to help build Godly character into the lives of all members of Magnolia Springs as they pursue their destiny in God.


We believe in and value community. The Church is a place where believers can relate to, encourage, protect, and admonish one another as we grow in our faith and experience God's.


We believe that the Great Commission is at the heart of God's work. Our goal is to cultivate a heart of evangelism to the extent that it causes ministries and strategies to be created, resources to be released, the people to find fulfillment in Christian service as the world is impacted by the message of salvation. Acts 1:8 describes the church's empowerment to fulfill the Great Commission locally, nationally, and internationally.


Stewardship is taking responsibility for those resources that God has so graciously provided for us. We believe that God has established the tithe as a way of giving and supporting the Church and its various ministries. We believe that offerings are above and beyond the tithe and should be a regular experience for every Christian.


God is a God of vision, productivity and purposefulness. God has given Magnolia
Springs a vision to reach the lost with the love of Jesus and see thousands of people
enter into a relationship with The Lord Jesus Christ. All of our efforts, finances, time,
energy and overall resources are to be focused in such a way that this becomes the
over-arching theme of all that we do and teach. The vision God has given the church
must be cast, pursued and by the grace of God fulfilled.


We seek to equip the congregation to take leadership, ownership and have involvement within their church and their community. We believe that leadership is both a gift and a skill. As a skill it can be learned by anyone willing to learn. We also define leadership as serving and laying down our lives for those around us. Jesus is the ultimate example of servant leadership in Magnolia Springs at every level, while acknowledging the importance of the 5-fold ministry for equipping of the Saints.


Acts 13:47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, have set thee to de a light of the Gentiles, That thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. We believe that missions are about changing lives at home and abroad, to do so, we are to give and go.
