The mission of Life Church: Building A Solid Life for Abundant Living
The cornerstone verse of Life Church: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
The method of fulfilling the mission:
Celebration Life: Sunday morning service
Community Life Gatherings: Wednesday night – ‘Dinner on Us’ with an intentional outreach to the community that includes a community meal, ministry for children and youth, and Life Study classes for adults.
Operation Solid Life: The use of Operation Solid Lives discipleship classes, as well as other key classes and gatherings that build a Solid Life including classes that focus on financial stewardship , purity, marriage, parenting, and walking in the freedom of Christ.
Home Gatherings / Life Studies: Focused discipleship gatherings that are short-term in nature that take place in home settings or at the church building. These are intentionally smaller in size and provide opportunity for growth, transparency, and the building of accountable relationships.
