Who We Are
Life Church is a Christian church that believes what Christians have always believed. We affirm the creeds, namely that Jesus of Nazareth is the second person of the trinity come in the flesh, and that his sacrificial death on the cross paid for our sin beyond what anyone could achieve by their own merit. After that, he was resurrected bodily and then he ascended into heaven. We’re now
waiting praying for Him to come back and set up His kingdom on the earth.
As a community we rejoice to see Jesus restore broken lives, body, soul and spirit. We love it when people make a decision to follow Jesus with all that they are, when people get filled with the Holy Spirit and empowered to live lives of holiness (read: happiness), when sick people are made well, when God replaces fear and depression with boldness and joy. We also embrace the five-fold ministry with the firm expectation that God gives people as gifts to help us all grow in our love for God and one another.
Beyond that, we are a missional community deeply committed to fulfilling the Great Commission by making disciples in our homes, our city, and around the world. We give our lives in service to a single great cause, that the name of Jesus would be exalted in every place the sun shines, and that people would sing His praises.
“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts…”—Acts 2:46We place a high value on growing together as a body of people who love Jesus. So while we meet together on Sundays for our main services, we also meet throughout the week as friends and families, in small groups, and at whole church social events. It is in the context of relationships that our communion with God is best expressed and the process of becoming like him is most fruitful.
It is impossible to grow relationships when living in an atmosphere of disapproval. Believing the best about people is not about ignoring their faults but about recognizing that everyone wants to change and become like Jesus. In a culture of honor we accept that we are always a work in progress and therefore deserving of mercy, grace and love. When we are willing to give the mercy, grace, and love of God to each other we position ourselves to receive the unique expression and gift of God that lies within each of us.
