Who Is LifeChurch.tv
LifeChurch.tv wants to make a lasting difference in your life, in our community, and in the world. How do we go about that? By leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. That's the driving purpose behind everything we do.
In your life
We want to help you get to know God better and enable you to become who He's created you to be. No matter where you are in life, we'll help you figure out some next steps in your journey with Him. It could start with serving, participating in a personal growth plan, giving, or attending church regularly.
Joining a small group – or LifeGroup – can help you grow closer to God while building relationships with other people. Having a strong community of friends to laugh, grow, and serve with will make a lasting difference in your life.
Along the way, we hope to work with you to make the world a better place.
For your family
We believe that strong families start with a solid foundation. We partner with parents to help raise up the next generation to have a strong relationship with Jesus. There are opportunities throughout the week for children and teens to grow closer to each other and to God. We also have great online resources for you to use at home at www.lifekids.tv.
In our community & in the world
We're serving a global community...in person and online, individually and in groups, inside our church and around the world. We serve in many different ways, but there's one common thread: people who are passionate about demonstrating God's love to others. As a church we support and engage in several causes to serve our global community. Learn more here.
The church isn't a building--it's people. And we think you'll find LifeChurch.tv a pretty friendly bunch! We meet in locations around the United States and globally online. Check out the nearest location to you at the bottom of the page or visit a campus Facebook page to start meeting people today.
