VALUES

  • Life Church is a place to encounter God and experience the powerful presence of God.

We are all about….

  • Jesus as revealed through the word of God. This means we preach about Jesus and we preach from the Bible because the Bible is all about Jesus.
  • Joy
    • Following Jesus is not a boring rule filled life. We believe it is a life filled with joy and purpose.  Jesus has promised to give us abundant joy and Life Church is a place that exhibits this joy for all to see! We celebrate the small wins and the big ones! Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” (ESV)
  • Generosity
    • Life Church truly believes that it is more blessed to give than to receive. God desires that we receive abundantly and have more than enough so as to become generous givers. It is impossible to outgive God.We give generously and without reproach to those in need all around us.  God gives and we love to give too!
  • Family
    • Life Church isn’t just a community, we are family. When we become God’s children we are adopted into his family.  We love to hang out together and love Jesus together.  We find our significance in relationships.
    • We believe that your physical family is vitally important to the work of God on earth and in our society. We are also passionate and committed to strengthening, restoring, healing and working with any and all people who will allow the grace of God to touch their family life.
  • Unity
    • Life Church is focused on the one vision- to see people encounter Jesus and develop a growing relationship with Him. Everything we do from Sunday worship service to serving our community is focused on our one vision- to show the love of Jesus which binds us together in unity.
  • Faith
    • Life Church is all about faith- Faith for the impossible goals, big dreams and bold steps. Christ lives in us and has commissioned us to step out of our comfort zone and see Him use us in unbelievable, world impacting ways.
  • Creativity
    • God is the Creator of the heavens and the earth and when He created man He did so in the image of Himself. Creativity is not reserved for only a few people that may seem to have it naturally. We are all gifted and created with creativity and we are to model God’s creativity in our daily lives.
