Hi! I am Pastor Mike Yost, and I would like to invite you to join us at The Springs Calvary Chapel.
Jesus said, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” John 7:37-38
In the spring of 2012, at the request of friends in the Mini-Cassia region, my wife Sheryl and I were sent by Joshua Springs Calvary Chapel to begin a Bible study with the prayer that God would grow a fellowship of believers who thirsted for a Spirit-filled, Bible-teaching, and community-reaching church.
Our vision is simple: to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, following the example of the early church in Acts 2:42- And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. We do this through contemporary praise, passionate prayer, and verse-by-verse study of the Scriptures, in a family-friendly style encouraging believers and non-believers to come as you are, to know the love of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
The Lord soon grew our fellowship from meeting in homes, to meeting in a storefront on the Rupert Town Square. By the spring of 2015 we outgrew our building in Rupert, and the Lord led us to purchase an elementary school centrally located in the heart of Heyburn and the Mini-Cassia region.
In the Rupert Town Square, there is a monument to the pioneers who first settled in high desert of the Snake River Plain of Southern Idaho, and on it is this quote:
“The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as a rose… I will open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.” Isaiah 35:1; 41:8
In the spirit of those early pioneers, it is our desire that The Springs will be a source of Living Water for those who seek to worship our Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit and Truth, and to see lives transformed into fountains of His Grace through the truth of His Word and the power of His Spirit.
Fellowship with us as we share the Good News of Jesus Christ,
From Southern Idaho to the ends of the earth!
