Who We Are

The Bible tells us to do everything “in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Colossians 3:17). At Springboro Christian Church our goal is to be “Focused on Christ” in everything we do (see Hebrews 12:2). It is our goal to make worship uplifting to all who attend, but our higher goal is to make our worship pleasing to the Lord. As we study the Bible, God’s inspired word, we focus on His will for us today. Wherever we are — at home, at school, at work, even in recreation, life is much more fulfilling while focused on Christ. God’s will is our goal!

Springboro Christian Church began meeting in Springboro, OH February 21, 1971. The church purchased about five acres south of Springboro, at 720 S. Main St., next to the Clearcreek Elementary School and built the original building which was dedicated June 10, 1973. As the congregation grew the building was expanded with a new worship center, classrooms, and offices. The new addition was dedicated on October 28, 1990.

Delbert Dawes ministered with Springboro Christian Church from her beginning until his retirement in December of 2003. Wayne Mock, the present senior minister, began ministering with the church in September of 2003.

The church is a non-denominational Christian Church and as such is locally autonomous (self-governing). Springboro Christian Church identifies with a brotherhood of believers who are part of the “Restoration Movement.” This movement began about 1800 as churches from a variety of denominations began to question the division that existed in Christ’s church. The “Restoration Movement” was formed with a vision for the unity of all followers of Christ based upon the authority of the Bible.

Springboro Christian Church is composed of Christians who seek to glorify God through Christ Jesus. The purpose of the church is to present to others the Good News of salvation through Christ and to help those already in Christ to continue to grow stronger in the Lord.
