Fountain Of Life

Serve others as Christ loved the world

About Us

Fountain of Life is a multi-ethnic, spirit-filled Christian congregation meeting in Middletown, Pennsylvania. It is our hope that if you do not have a home church, you will find a church home here, where you will powerfully and intimately encounter the Lord Jesus, grow in the knowledge of Him and become established in His purposes.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help people become consistently reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ.

We do this by:

Our Values

We value being Biblically accurate and active

We believe the Bible to be the infallible written word of God. We believe that our first devotion and direction is to be Biblically accurate and obedient. (James 1:21-25; 2 Tim. 3:16)

We value being culturally relevant and active

It is our call and mandate to be people who model Christ to the world. It is necessary to ensure that no walls go up between the unsaved and the church so we can have an influence in the world. It is important that we meet people where they are at. People are not impressed with or drawn to religion. (Eph. 3:1-11; John 17:15-23)

We value having Jesus Christ at the center of all we do

In all your ways acknowledge me and I will direct your paths. Paul instructed us that all we do we should do as unto the Lord. Proverbs tells us there is a way that seems right to a man but the end is destruction. (Prov. 3:6; 1 Cor 10:31; Prov. 16:25)

We value being led by the Spirit

God has a plan for each of our lives and our ability to walk in it will determine the manifestation of that plan (Jer 29:11). Our ability to walk in God’s plan requires us to be led (Gal. 5:16). We are unable to walk in His plan alone. Jesus said when He left His disciples “I will not leave you alone” (John 14:18). Jesus promised He would ask the father to send the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us (John 14:26). Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would bring back to our memory all that He spoke and that the Spirit would take what is His and make it known to us (John 16:13-14). Paul said that as many as are led by the Spirit those are the sons of God! (Rom. 8:14)

We value Spirit-led worship

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the one who initiates all true worship. He will lead worship within each individual heart and congregation if we allow him to. (John 4:21-24; Rev. 4:5)

We value the Great Commission

The last instruction Jesus left with his disciples before ascending to heaven (Matt. 28:18-20) was to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to observe all the things that Jesus commanded them to do. This is done when individuals catch the vision of reproducing the life of a disciple in others.

We value the gifts of the Spirit in every believer

We believe that the Spirit of God enters into each person who has truly received the free gift of salvation (Rom 8:15). We believe there is another infilling of the Spirit available to every believer along with giftings that are given (Acts 8:14-17; Eph. 4:7; 1 Tim. 4:14).

We value equipping and sending members into ministry

We believe that the organized congregational life is meant to be a support and training ground for each individual member. We believe that each member has a place within the body of Christ and together we are to help one another and spur one another on to be actively pursuing the call and giftings God has given us. (Eph 4:1-16; Acts 13:1-3).

We value unity

We choose to be inclusive rather than exclusive by valuing all believers regardless of denomination or background who hold to the essentials of our Christian faith.

Our Vision

We see a congregation of passionate believers that are so filled with the Holy Spirit and in love with Jesus Christ that they are contagious! The passion and love for Jesus within them causes them to reach out to those around them who don't know Jesus in an effort to help them become disciples.

We see the congregation so full of faith that they exercise their beliefs in the marketplace, on the job, at home or anywhere they may be.

We see that as we go public with our belief we will see miracles that display the Glory of God and many people will come to the faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ and live as His disciples.

We see as we live out this passionate pursuit of the heart of God we will not be able to fit all those who are coming to Jesus in our building. We see that this passion and love lived out will spawn new church congregation plants within central PA and around the world. As we continue to seek God passionately He will call some out to go to other nations to start mission works and churches.

We see the Fountain of Life training people to serve the Lord and to recruit disciples around the world.
