Missions at Life Church

Life Church Missions

In Luke 9:11, it says that “the crowds followed” Jesus. It also says that Jesus “spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing.” (NIV) Jesus had incredible influence. People followed him not only because he taught them truth, but because he served them and met their needs. He taught them and gave truth. He also healed them and helped them. Jesus had irresistible influence because he had a sacred balance of truth and grace, teaching and helping, and showing and telling.

At Life Church, our goal is to follow the example of Jesus

He commanded us to “go and make disciples of all nations.” Teach about truth. He also gave us the example of reaching out to “the poor” (Luke 4:18 - NIV) and “the least of these” (Matthew 28:19 - NIV). This is about grace.

We strive to bring life to our world through God’s truth and grace both locally and globally. We believe people can use whatever abilities they have (teachers, nurses, construction workers, business people…) to make a difference. We are involved in local outreach efforts, have started five churches, and go on trips to under-resourced and unreached parts of the world.

Pool Party & Baptism
Save the date, August 16 on your calendar now! We will be heading over to Veteran’s Memorial Park Pool for a great time of fun, fellowship & baptisms.One of the ways that Jesus asks Christians to participate in following him Baptism is a picture of what happens to us when we pray to become believers: death, burial, and resurrection. Our old life is buried and a new life emerges. Baptism is a very important step in the Christian life when we publicly show our commitment to Jesus Christ. Baptism does not give you spiritual salvation that makes you right with God, only your faith in Jesus Christ does that. If you would like to be baptized or find out more about baptism, contact Elaine Schlung (admin.yourlifechurch.org).
