The essence of faith is seeing Jesus for who he truly is and treasuring him above everything else.
— Chuck Bower, pastor

the Father

God loves you no matter who you are or what you've done...or not done. The proof is that he sent his son Jesus, so that those who believe in him will live...forever.  God is. Nothing is more foundational to the world, or the solar system, or the Milky Way, or the universe than that...God is.

the son

Jesus is the tangible proof of God's love.  He came down to earth, became man and proved how much God loves us by dying for our sins. He is our redeemer, our advocate, and our friend.

the spirit

The third person of the Trinity. The Spirit is God's literal presence within believers, sustains us through life's many trials, empowers us to become more like Jesus, and opens our eyes to see more of God.

the word

The Bible is the literal word of God written down by human hands. Though it is made up of many books by many authors spanning many years, the Bible tells one story of God pursing his rebellious creation and ultimately suceeding in Jesus. Every word is meant for our good so that we might know who God truly is and have a compass for living life the way God designed it to be lived.

the church

The Church is the bride of Christ.  Poplar Springs strives to be obedient to Jesus and his mission  because he first loved us and proved his own obedience at the cross. In our coming together and loving one another we get to act on living as Jesus intended.  All are equally important in his kingdom and all are worthy of his great sacrifice.
