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)

The Cassula’s started the ministry called “Jacob’s Well” to reach out to the impoverished rural communities of Brazil. Jacob’s Well focuses on community development and evangelism. After living on the field in Brazil for 6 years, they reached 9 communities and impacted over 2,500 people. The Cassula’s have successfully transitioned the field operations to local Brazilians and their family has moved back to the USA to spread awareness of the need in Brazil and to strengthen the work of Jacob’s Well to reach out to other areas of the world.

Our heart is to make disciples. We preach the gospel to our neighbors and in street outreaches. When people respond to the gospel, we teach them the life Jesus intended for us to live. We train them through Bible and life sharing. We take them to the streets with us to evangelize which results in house churches being born as they reach out to people within their own networks of influence.
