The vision of LifeChurch is based on the words of Jesus: “Go and Make Disciples.”
Matthew 28:18-20 says:
“Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
We do this by helping people know God, find freedom, grow in community and live on mission.

OUR CHURCH GOVERNMENT
Our church is governed by a corporate board, which provides leadership and oversight for the church. We believe that this structure allows for accountability, transparency, and wise decision-making. The board is comprised of dedicated and qualified members of our church community and senior pastors from reputable and trustworthy ministries, who are committed to serving the church and making decisions that are in alignment with our mission and values. We believe that this form of governance allows for effective stewardship of the resources and responsibilities entrusted to us by God. As a result, we strive to operate in a way that is both spiritually and financially responsible, and we believe that our corporate board plays a critical role in ensuring that we fulfill this commitment.
