BECOME Rooted in Christ
At Maple Springs, our Mission is to be Rooted, Growing, and Bearing Fruit for Christ. This Mission is spelled out in John 15 where Jesus says:
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. 2 He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes[a] to make it bear more fruit. 3 You have already been cleansed[b] by the word that I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing."
Here at Maple Springs, we value being Rooted in Christ. This is all about your living relationship with the living God. When you are rooted in Christ, you receive nutrients for living.
How do I get Rooted?
Step One: Commit to Worship (When you are in town, make this commitment to attendance)
Step Two: Commit to Regular Weekly “Time with God” (Make a daily time to read the scriptures and pray)
Step Three: Commit to Serve rather than “be served” (Choose one of our Serving Opportunities and get involved)
Step Four: Attend The PATH to Membership Classes to learn how to get fully connected with Christ and Maple Springs.
We believe that if you will make these commitments, then you will begin to grow your roots deep in Christ.
