We believe that God commanded the universal and local Church to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth until everyone has been reached. For Springs Church this means that we focus on both our neighbor as well as those around the globe.
Key Elements of the calling of the Great Commission:
• Preaching (Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47
• Disciple Making (Matthew 28:19)
• Life style witness of the individual believer (Luke 24:48; Acts 1:8)
• Training by the local church (Ephesians 4:11)
• The role of our Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit in empowering, sending, and verifying the message (Matthew 28:18, 20; Mark 16:17-18, 20; John 20:21; Acts 1:8; Acts 13:3-4)
• Sending Out (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:15, John 20:21, Acts 13:1-4a)
• Baptism (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:41; 8:12, 26-28, 10:47)

Jonathan is training to be a missionary pilot. We are working towards bringing a seaplane over to a remote area of Indonesia called the Riau Islands.
