No Prayer Meeting Tonight

Due to ice and freezing rain, we will not be having the Prayer Meeting tonight at any of our Springfield area campuses.
The Prayer Meeting is still happening at the Joplin Campus.

A Letter from Pastors John & Debbie Lindell

It is our prayer as you connect with us today, that you will encounter God’s amazing grace, your faith will be strengthened, and you will find hope for whatever you are walking through.

And always remember, you were created to belong to a life-giving community of people who believe in you – and there is a place for you here.

Welcome home!

Pastors John & Debbie Lindell

A Church Where You Belong

We are blown away by how God continues to strengthen and build the church and use us as a body of believers to bring the good news of the Gospel to people who need Jesus! As one of the churches in the Springfield and southwest Missouri area, we unite around the calling to be Christ’s hands extended by loving with extravagance, serving with genuineness, and welcoming people home.

New Normal

Far too often, people settle into a life of mediocrity – feeling like they are on the outside of God’s blessing looking in. But that is not the heart of God for you – He wants you to walk each day in the land of blessing. He wants you to live in a new normal.

Soul Set Free

A Book by John Lindell

The gospel is even better than what we believe. Soul Set Free will help you discover the true meaning behind God’s grace and learn to no longer view the gospel as anything less than a truth that sets your soul free. It will change your life forever.

She Prays

A Devotional by Debbie Lindell

In She Prays, Debbie Lindell invites you on a 31-day journey to experience a confident and conversational relationship with your heavenly Father. Her desire is that your soul will be transformed as your confidence in prayer grows, and that your faith will be strengthened as you see God work through your prayers in ways you never imagined possible.

Life Groups

Life Groups are the way we make a big church feel small! There are groups meeting in-person across the area and online groups that meet all around the world. Join a group today to build new friendships and connect with others as you grow in your walk with Jesus!
