Q: What will my experience be like at a Fountain of Life Church service?

  1. Infants/toddlers: our trained staff is available to watch your little ones during the entire service if you so desire.

  2. Children up to 7 yrs old: Worship with the adults, then leave to their own room to be taught the Word on their level.

  3. Children 8-12: With adults entire service, but have their own teaching on Wed night.

We live our lives based on what we BELIEVE. Sometimes we believe things that simply aren’t true, or at the least...aren’t helpful. Assimilating God’s Word into our lives ensures that we are acting upon truth and helping our lives.

Everyone worships. It’s just a matter of who or what you worship. God is the only One worthy of worship, and God is the only One who returns peace, life, and joy to us when we worship Him.

  1. Service: Sunday 10 a.m., lasts 1-1/2 hours

  2. Dress:Some wear business attire, some wear jeans

  3. Music: Service begins with praise to the Lord...about  25 minutes of singing contemporary worship choruses mixed in with hymns set to pop music. Tastefully loud.

  4. Sermon: 45-50 minutes, from the Bible, and can be practically applied to your life.


For humankind, there are three possible levels of acceptance with God:

First, we are unacceptable to God, and therefore what we do for Him is unacceptable (Gal 2:6)

Second we are acceptable to God but what we are doing for Him is unacceptable (1Cor 3:12-13).

Thirdly, and ideally, we are accepted before God and our works are also accepted. (John 14:12)


A quote from Charles Spurgeon:

“The way of acceptance described in Scripture is, first, the man is accepted, and then what that man does is accepted. It is written: “And he shall purify the sons of Levi, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.”


First, God is pleased with the person, and then with the gift, or the work. The unaccepted person offers of necessity an unacceptable sacrifice. If a man be your enemy, you will not value a present which he sends you.”


We are accepted when we give our lives to Jesus Christ and He becomes our righteousness. It is then, and only then, that we have the opportunity to present acceptable work and sacrifice unto God.
