About Us

Who We Are
Michael S. Carlton

LEAD PASTOR

Pastor Mike has spent seventeen plus years devoting his life to discipleship and building the Kingdom of God. Pastor Mike and his wife Amanda have had the privilege of being on staff at Master’s Commission Springfield for 5 years where they raised up young adults in a discipleship program.

Traveling the world they were witness to seeing thousands of people come to know Jesus Christ in a real way. For the last nine years, they have devoted themselves to the local church where Pastor Mike grew as an Associate Pastor and then having the privilege of founding Bloom Church as the Lead Pastor.

For years Mike and Amanda had a deep calling to plant a church and felt a deep connection to the Branson area. Then in March of 2013, with just 21 people Bloom Church had its very first service. Now six years later, we at Bloom are so humbled by seeing God move in such miraculous ways as over 1,600 people call Bloom Church home between our two campuses, over 3,000 people have committed their lives to Jesus, hundreds of families are in life groups across our city every week, and countless lives have changed through a deeper walk with Jesus!

Bloom Church is blessed to be partnering with a network of churches to receive the mentoring, resources, and support they need to build a healthy and thriving church. Pastor Mike and Amanda desire fervently to see the people of our church experience God on a personal level, seeking for them to be a part of a loving community, and to bloom into whom they were created to be.

MISSION

to see you bloom into who you are created to be as you Find Jesus,
Find Freedom, Find Purpose, and then Make a Difference!

About God

We believe God the Father (first person of the Trinity) is perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, sovereignty, and love. Infinite and personal, the Father cares deeply for each person and is actively involved in our world so that every person may know and trust Him.

Romans 1:20, Deuteronomy 32:4, 2 Samuel 22:31, Psalm 19:7, Leviticus 11:44-45, Revelation 4:8, Psalm 145:17-18, Isaiah 55:9, Job 12:13, Ecclesiastes 3:14, Psalm 103:19, Psalm 115:3, Psalm 147:3-5, Psalm 86:15, Psalm 136:26, John 3:16, Ephesians 2:4-5, 1 John 3:1, 1 John 4:9-11, Jeremiah 23:23-24, Psalm 90:2-4, Matthew 19:26, Job 3:14-18, Acts 17:24-28

About God The Father

We believe Jesus Christ (second person of the Trinity) is the eternal Son of God, the visible image of the invisible God, who became a man and subjected himself to the trials and temptations of humanity. He lived in perfect obedience to the Father, teaching what the Father told him to teach and performing miracles as a testimony to his divinity. In selfless love, he voluntarily paid the price for the sins of all people by dying on the cross as their substitute. After his physical death, Jesus Christ rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and now sits at the right hand of the Father as the only mediator between God and humans. Someday he will return to earth, personally and visibly, to conclude history and fulfill God’s plan.

Deuteronomy 6:4, Genesis 1, John 1:1-14, 1 Chronicles 29:10-13, Isaiah 44:6, Isaiah 46:9-10, Psalm 24:1-2, Revelation 1:8, Matthew 28:19, Luke 1:35, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Acts 5:3-4, 2 Corinthians 13:14

About God The Son

We believe there is only one God, the Creator and Ruler of all, who exists eternally as a Trinity of three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity is fully God, and each is personally distinct from the other.

John 1:1-18, John 1:49-50, John 20:31, Mark 1:1, Matthew 16:15-17, John 5:18-23, John 10:30-33, Colossians 1:15- 17, Colossians 2:9, Hebrews 4:15, John 8:28, John 12:49, Mark 6:2, Luke 19:37, John 14:11, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Corinthians 15:3-8, Hebrews 9:15, Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 26:39, Romans 1:1-4, Philippians 2:5-8, John 14:11, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, 1 Timothy 2:5-6, Acts 2:22-36, Revelation 1:7-8, Matthew 24:27, Matthew 16:27, James 5:7, Acts 1:10-11

About God The Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit (third person of the Trinity) comes to live within a person who puts their trust in Jesus. The Holy Spirit empowers us to live as God wants us to live and gives us spiritual gifts to serve the church and change the world. The Holy Spirit is actively at work convicting hearts and drawing people to God.

Ephesians 1:13-14, Acts 2:38, 1 Corinthians 6:19, Acts 1:8, John 14:25, 2 Timothy 1:7, Ezekiel 36:26-27, Romans 8:6, Romans 5:5, Galatians 5:22-23, 1 Corinthians 12:4-7, John 16:7-15, John 15:26, John 3:5-8

About The Bible

We believe the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) is the Word of God. Written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write down what God wanted to communicate to us, it is both the loving expression of God’s will for our lives and the timeless, authoritative, infallible rule of faith and practice.

2 Timothy 3:16-17, Romans 15:4, 2 Peter 3:15-16, Jeremiah 1:9 John 17:17, Matthew 28:19-20, Psalm 18:30, Psalm 119:1-8, Psalm 119:33-35, Psalm 119:91-93, Psalm 119:137-138, Psalm 119:165, Proverbs 3:5-6, Joshua 1:7-9, Hebrews 4:12

About Humanity

We believe men and women were created by God to live in relationship with God, but that they rebelled by going their own way and thereby introduced sin into the world. Like a virus, sin has spread to all humans, alienating us from God, distorting our view of good and evil, and causing pain and suffering.

Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:7, 1 Timothy 2:3, John 17:3, Genesis 2:15-17, Genesis 3:1-19, Romans 5:12, Romans 3:9-12, Romans 3:23, Ephesians 2:1-2, Isaiah 59:2, Romans 1:20-32, Jeremiah 17:9, Matthew 15:19-20, James 1:13-15, Isaiah 5:20

About Sin And Salvation

We believe Jesus Christ died on the cross as punishment for our sins and that those who believe in Jesus are saved from both the authority and eternal consequences of sin. It is only through faith in Jesus Christ, not by being a good person or doing good deeds, that a person can be restored to a right relationship with God. Those who trust in Jesus will spend eternity with him while those who reject him will suffer the consequences of their sins, separated from his love and mercy.

Matthew 26:26-29, 1 Peter 2:24, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Ephesians 1:7-8, 1 John 2:1-2, Romans 5:6-11, Romans 10:9, John 10:10, Colossians 1:21-24, Romans 6:20-23, Galatians 5:16- 23, Romans 6:11-14, Colossians 1:9-14, John 3:16-18, John 17:3, Ephesians 2:4-10, Romans 3:23-26, John 11:25-26

About The Church

We believe the Church is neither a building nor an organization, but a community of Christ-followers that is mobilized to make disciples and radically impact the world for God. Jesus is the head of the Church and all who acknowledge him as Savior and Lord are members. As one expression of the Body of Christ, those in a local church belong to one another, take care of one another, and use their time, talents and treasures to serve each other and the world. Scripture commands believers to gather regularly for worship, prayer, fellowship, the teaching of the Word, and to practice Baptism and Communion. Every local church should do its part to represent Jesus in the context and community in which it is located.

Romans 16:5, 1 Corinthians 12:27, Colossians 1:24, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8, Acts 12:5, Ephesians 3:10-11, Ephesians 1:22- 23, Colossians 1:17-20

About Faith And Practice

We rely on the Bible as the foundation for all matters of faith and practice. By adhering to God's Word and seeking God, we can best observe his greatest commandments, which are to love God and love others. MPC cannot bind the conscience of individual members in areas where the Bible is silent or unclear. Rather, each believer is to be led in these areas by the Lord, to whom he or she alone is ultimately responsible.

Romans 12:2, Proverbs 3:5-6, Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Deuteronomy 11:1, John 14:23, Mark 12:28-31, Romans 12:14-21, 1 Corinthians 8:1-13, 1 Corinthians 10:23- 33, Romans 14:1-23

1. WE FIND CONFIDENCE IN AUTHENTICITY

We are fearfully and wonderfully made! We are not striving to be something we are not, but learning to discover our unique gifts to help impact the Kingdom of God.

2. WE HUNGER FOR GROWTH

We must have a teachable spirit that strives to be the best versions of ourselves by welcoming feedback. Everything that grows must be stretched, broken down, and built back up.

3. WE LAVISH OUR GENEROSITY

We believe it is better to give than to receive and we will give generously of our time, talents, treasures, and our testimonies.

4. WE GRASP THAT EXCELLENCE REFLECTS CHARACTER

We will be stewards of the blessings we have been given, and honor God and the people of Bloom by giving our absolute best.

5. WE ARE SERVANT LEADERS

“Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant.” -Jesus. It is not about us, but the people we lead and we spend our energy inspiring and empowering them.

6. WE ARE SOLUTION-ORIENTED

Anyone can identify a problem, but leaders identify solutions. A problem is just an opportunity for growth and a step to the next level as we discover the solution.

7. WE ARE UNAPOLOGETICALLY LOYAL

We are more than a team: we are family and we love, respect, support, and defend each other in that way.

8. WE ARE SOLEY MOTIVATED TO POPULATE HEAVEN

We live and breathe the Great Commission and will do anything short of sin to see people accept the gift of Jesus in their lives!

9. WE PASSIONATELY PURSUE THE VISION

God has given us a big vision that is much bigger than ourselves and we are passionate about creating a culture that desires to see that vision become reality.
