Michael Gist
Senior Pastor
 
I am excited to be a part of God’s intricate system of faith. As pastor of The Life Center, I intend to change the dynamics of church by making our leaders available to people, and then, making disciples. Making disciples begins with a relationship. 
 
 
 
Stephen Love 
Children’s Pastor
 
If your children are ready for a fun, high-energy, and meaningful experience, let’s go no further. I am thrilled to meet you and your family as we discover relevant and challenging teachings of Christ, the Jesus who transforms children into tomorrow’s leaders.

Our Vision 

divider
Our mission and vision is to love people unconditionally creating an atmosphere of worship and freedom. The Life Center strives to develop a multicultural environment of excellence, impacting our church and community with the teachings of Jesus Christ Our goal is to spread a message of hope, the message of Jesus Christ, to all people that we are given an opportunity to meet.

 

Real. Relevant. Reaching.

REAL focuses on the fact that we live in a fallen world, and at one time or another everyone will need a hand up. We do not make ourselves out to be perfect, but we strive to be better each day that God gives us. To be real means that we are believers of Christ and we are saved, but we have no right to judge anyone for their failures or past mistakes. We are real because our failures are not fatal, but our failures are forgiven. 

RELEVANT shows that we can relate to most anyone. We are relevant because we are all interconnected with the same emotions and desires, in need of a Savior. We are relevant by lifting up one another through mutual matters at hand. Relevant deals with real struggles recognizing we have been redeemed.

REACHING means that we are concerned about our community and the people of our region, and we are committed to fulfilling the Great Commission of Christ, that is, to go into the world and make disciples of Jesus Christ. Reaching demonstrates our compassion for people, through our love for the Lord. This extension is to soon send missionaries to foreign soil.
 

Our Core Values

FAMILY: We believe that the family is God’s design that is the dynamic that helps to build a church and connect people together to live healthy spiritual lives. We believe our lives ought to compel our unsaved friends and neighbors to want to experience our joy.  We believe family is the core foundation of society and of the church. We believe a God-honoring Christian walk must manifest itself in family life.  We believe in spending quality time with our family, praying together, learning together, and worshipping together.

WORSHIP: We believe that worship is an essential part of the faith as a Christian. Worship is primary as believers exalt God with passion and thanksgiving. We believe worship should be honoring to God and uplifting to the congregation. Our worship style is focused on reaching the lost in our community as well as the spiritual growth of our attenders.

REACHING: We believe as Christians that we have a commitment to reach people as Christ commanded in the Great Commission. We are mandated to reach our community, but we are not limited by the community, nor by color, nor by creed, nor by culture. Our goal is to love and reach everyone by sharing the good news and the works that Christ exemplified.

TEACHING: We believe that the revelation of God is made evident by the Holy Scriptures in the Bible. The Word of God is our authority, and this is what we teach and live by. Our hope is to train Christians by edifying the church.

SERVICE: We believe that we are the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. It is important that every born-again believer volunteers his or her time by serving in the ministry to make a difference in the life of another. Our mission is to assimilate people to do the work of Christ. Our voluntary work is a labor of love.

Sermon Series:  The  End  Times 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the
falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who
opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so
that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” 

(2 Thessalonians 2:3–4, NKJV)
