Life Church exists to impact our Neighbours, our Nation and the Nations with the good news about Jesus. Leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
Vision 2019: Devoted
A Relational Community
People are our priority. The church is a living community—not a building, event or style.
A Welcoming Community
Presenting a message of grace in a place of love, acceptance, and forgiveness.
A Devoted Community
Following Jesus with full devotion to Christ and His cause is normal for every Christian.
A Worshipping Community
That honours God in corporate gatherings of praise and a life of service to the King.
An Authentic Community
Helping people live the Christian life with integrity in a non-religious, relational, and practical way.
A Generational Community
Where all ages worship, serve and share life together as we build for the future.
A Biblical Community
We value the Scriptures and believe in the transforming power of God’s Word.
A Networked Community
Spiritual growth and Christian community happen best in small groups and ‘church’ must happen where people live, work, and play. Not just where they go on a Sunday.
A Relevant Community
Contemporary in style and practical in application whilst remaining biblically consistent.
A Well Led Community
Churches should be led humbly by men and women with leadership gifts and an awareness of their accountability to God and role as stewards of the body whose head is Christ.
An Excellent Community
Excellence inspires people, honours God and reveals His nature.
A Missional Community
We exist not for ourselves but to transform the world in service to others.
Life Church is a Christian church which identifies with historical Christianity.
We affirm The Apostles’ Creed and the creeds of Nicea and Constantinople.
We value the unity of all Christians and churches who faithfully share the good news of Jesus as revealed in Scripture.
Life Church is a member of the Evangelical Alliance, the largest body serving evangelical Christians in the UK, and affirms their statement of faith but, of course, not necessarily all of their public statements or the content of their publications.
Our Purpose and Values (above) provide further indicators to our beliefs.
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
