This church is a breath of fresh air. Real, honest, Jesus loving people. You feel welcomed, you feel the Holy Spirit here. No matter your background, social status, etc., you feel welcomed into God’s family. The pastor and leaders all have wisdom, follow the Bible, have grace, and are there for you. I adore honesty and authenticity and I found it here
I like Life Church because they are taking tangible steps to train people in the gifts of the spirit and how to reach others where they work, play and do business. this is good practical stuff that you don’t have to be a seminary graduate to understand.
Life Church is Truly a place of welcome and Worship of the One True God , Jesus Christ , a place of Love and acceptance and a place where you can be part of community and grow . A place to see the signs that follow those who believe.
If you’re tired of “Church ” as usual ” and want to see personal growth and Kingdom at work. This is the place!
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10 (NIV)
Whatever your background, this statement made by Jesus is relevant to you. He came to open the door to a kind of life that is rarely found. This broken world will steal the joy of living if you don't know where to find REAL LIFE. It is found only in Jesus.
our vision is
PURSUING REAL LIFE TOGETHER
This pursuit looks like...
We know God is always good
We believe we are who God says we are
We choose relationship & connection
We value all people & influence our world
We call these our cornerstones.
We live to declare the promises of this good news and to experience real life in Christ.
OUR VISION & HISTORY
We want you to experience God in such a way that it transforms you into someone who expresses the nature of Christ to the world. Our Mission is not to build a better church but to build a better world. We are called to be thermostats and set the tempature of our environment, instead of simply being thermometers. Watch this short video for an overview of our History & Vision.
Our Staff manages all the daily operations of Life Church. We have a great team of employees, some full-time & others part-time, who serve the body of Christ. There are a lot of ministries both inside and outside the church that require oversight. Our pastors & administrators work to fulfill our vision.

The Leadership team guides the overall function and vision of Life Church.
Our team meets regularly to make decisions that help fuel the spiritual health of the body. They are chosen due to the quality of their character and their Christian testimony, not based upon age or gender. They are not chosen as couples, but as individuals.
We maintain generational diversity so the whole body is represented with a broad spectrum of perspectives. We believe in the power of teamwork. Working together we are able to accomplish a great deal in a culture of honor and love.
The Stewardship team oversees the finances of Life Church. They meet regularly to review spending, and to make decisions about projects and missions. They approve the budget & guide the staff on spending decisions. Their main role is to make sure Life Church stewards our resources well.
The Apostolic Counsel is a group of seasoned leaders who give relational covering to the leadership of Life Church. They have authority to speak into the lives of all leaders. They are invited to speak every year so they are known to the body because they are our friends.
