THIS IS WHO
WE ARE

MISSION

Here at Life Church we have a desire to live out our mission of being a safe place for people to find and follow Jesus. A place where you aren’t judged, but instead, loved. Here we all come together to help each other no matter where we are in life. We want you to know God loves you just how you are. You don’t have to “clean up” to have a relationship with Him. Our desire is for everyone to feel like they can attend Life Church and when they do, they will find love and acceptance. We want Life Church to be a safe place where anyone can find and follow Jesus. Why? Because we ultimately believe there is HOPE in spite of the messiness of life, and that HOPE is Jesus.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

THE HOLY BIBLE

The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It
alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original
writing, it is inspired, infallible, and inerrant.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26

TRINITY

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal.

1 John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6;
Hebrews 3:7-11

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth,
Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have
lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, performed miracles, died on the
cross for mankind, and thus atoned for our sins through the shedding of His
blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures,
ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and
glory.

John 1:1,14, 20:28; 1 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; 1 Timothy
2:5

VIRGIN BIRTH

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the
third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary’s womb; therefore, He is the
Son of God.

Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35

REDEMPTION

Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell;
his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21

REGENERATION

For anyone to know God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

John 6:44, 65; Matthew 19:28; Titus 3:5

SALVATION

We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial,and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our goodworks or of any human efforts.

Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts
16:31; Hebrews 9:22

REPENTANCE

Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of ourlives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive
forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation.

Acts 2:21, 3:19; 1 John 1:9

SANCTIFICATION

Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ’s character in us. It is
through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

1 Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11

JESUS’ BLOOD

The Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to
be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death.

1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29

JESUS CHRIST INDWELLS ALL BELIEVERS

Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and
live inside them by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to Him thus making Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior.They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when He died,
was buried, and rose again from the dead.

John 1:12; John 14:17, 23; John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelation 3:20

BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth.

Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:16

GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and
confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible’s lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts
in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters.

Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:16; 1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6-7; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Peter 4:10

THE CHURCH

The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus’ Great Commission.Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the Church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23

WATER BAPTISM

Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convertis commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name ofthe Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48

THE LORD’S SUPER

A unique time of communion in the presence of God
when the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross.

Matthew 26:26-29; 1 Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25

MARRIAGE

We believe marriage is defined in the Bible as a covenant,a sacred bond between one man and one woman, instituted by and publicly entered into before God.

Matthew 19:4-6

GOD’S WILL FOR PROVISION

It is the Father’s will for believers to become whole, healthy, and successful
in all areas of life. Because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on Earth, but that fact should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ’s provision in order to
better serve others.

lost will be resurrected; those that are saved to the resurrection of life and those that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation.
