What’s In A Name?
- a language unit by which a person or thing is known. In both the Hebrew and Greek languages, name denotes honor, authority or character. In other words, a name expresses who the person is or what the nature of the thing is that is named.
Wellspring Ministries – Churches & Missions, Inc. expresses the nature and/or character of this ministry. The name Wellspring was chosen to reflect the Divine Source of our calling. Jesus, The Son, and Christ, of God. Jesus is the Wellspring (inexhaustible Source) of Life. It is from Him that the waters of life flow eternally.
His ministry flows through the people belonging to, affiliated, associated or working with the members of this organization in various ministries and churches both in the United States and abroad. Missions is at the heart of the ministry calling.
Ministries include, but are not limited to, City-wide crusades, leadership training seminars, non-church works and outreaches such as Food Banks, Bible Institutes and/or Colleges, Victorious Christian Living Discipleship Centers, Salvation Army, Prison, Hospital, Convalescent Home outreach and Street Evangelism. Home groups, Men’s groups, Women’s groups are also included.
The word Churches expresses our dedication to go beyond the establishment and nurture of Wellspring Church to the planting, nurture and encouragement of churches wherever the Lord leads. An example of this type of relationship would be that which exists with River of Life – Word Ministry, pastored by Sullivan Ray Causey in Las Vegas, or with Dr. Boma Lawson in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
Church of All Nations
Wellspring has, since it’s inception, been a Missions Church. We have tirelessly trained and encouraged missionaries and missionary giving. Our focus has always been Las Vegas and the World. Wellspring Church is just not Wellspring without the Nations.
Several years ago the Pastor and Board of Elders discussed and prayed about changing the name of Wellspring Church & Christian Center to better express the real nature, character and God given mandate for this fellowship of believers. They and accepted the name of “Church of All Nations”.
We are a church body of covenant believers who consist of people from many different backgrounds, races and nationalities. We are knit with people, churches and ministry organizations all over the world. Our involvement with fellow believers in the Nations of the world is increasing at an excitingly dizzying rate.
We have prayed to the Lord to give us the Nations for our inheritance and He is answering in great abundance because it is a prayer from His heart:
Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Psalm 2:8 (KJV)
We love you! Our dedication to you and to the vision of God is increasing daily. Our prayer is that Wellspring Church of All Nations will quickly move into her full inheritance in Christ Jesus and that her name will bring glory to the King of Kings and joy to His people
