Dayspring Community Church was born in 1929. Pastor Bill Lyne came to Dayspring in 1988, and God began to birth a new dream in the leaders’ hearts: seeing Dayspring become a church for the unchurched. A church that would be highly relevant to the lives of real people. A church with a contagious faith that would influence and change our entire community, one life at a time. So in 1997 we began an exciting journey of transitioning Dayspring from a traditional church to one that is highly contemporary in style, bringing God’s message to this generation in new and compelling ways.

The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the final authority for Christian faith and living.
God exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; and has revealed Himself to be perfect in love, and righteous in all His ways, and creator of all things.
God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good: He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.
Jesus Christ is God's eternal Son. As true God and true man He allowed Himself to be born of a virgin, taught men how to live through His sinless life, was crucified as a sacrifice for our sins, arose bodily from the dead, was seen by over 500 people, and returned to heaven to prepare a place for us.
Men and women were created in God's image, tempted by Satan and rebelled against God.
Through repentance and personal faith in Jesus Christ, we are forgiven our sins, reborn by the Holy Spirit, and we become children of God.
The Holy Spirit persuades us to repent of our sins and confess Jesus as Lord. He lives in us and teaches us. He provides for our growth in grace at every stage of our spiritual life, enabling us to live a victorious life through His power and presence.
The Church is the living Body of Christ on earth; He is its head and the source of its life. The Body is composed of those who have received Him as Savior and Lord. The church exists to bring glory to Jesus Christ and to accomplish His purposes.
Jesus will return
Jesus Christ will return to earth to raise the dead, judge the world, and establish His glorious kingdom. This is the hope of the Church and its encouragement for ministry. Those who have been reborn will live with Him forever.
