City of God Church, formerly Fountain of Life Church, was established in August of 2006 by William & Debra Stout. After operating a Christian youth ministry (Inside Out) in 1998, the Lord directed the Stouts to reach the rest of the families and community through establishing a non-denominational, multi-cultural, multi-racial, and diverse community of believers bound by the Love of Jesus, love for each other, and love for the lost.
Our Springfield Campus and original location is at W. Pleasant and S. Wittenberg Ave. in a former school building auditorium. Our first church service was held on August 27, 2006.
As Christians, we have committed our lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and his Word. We recognize ourselves as joint laborers together with Christ in fulfilling His plan and purpose in the world. We come together for the purpose of worship and service to the Lord to exalt Him, and to share His gospel with the world beginning with our neighbors in Springfield, Ohio.
That Springfield Ohio is a City of God. We earnestly desire to share the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ with our City, to be living examples of the power of God’s Word to transform lives, bring peace, and joy, and all that we need in this life, and eternal life thereafter.
