THE MISSION OF LIFECHURCH IS TO CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE WHERE PEOPLE CAN BECOME FULLY-DEVOTED FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST.
WE ENVISION A COMMUNITY THAT REDEFINES THE IDEA OF “CHURCH” FOR THE 21st CENTURY: A GATHERING OF REAL PEOPLE IN A MODERN WORSHIP EXPERIENCE WHERE CHRIST IS ENCOUNTERED IN CULTURALLY RELEVANT WAYS, AND WHERE THE RADICAL EXPRESSION OF FAITH SPURS OUR PEOPLE TO SPREAD THE LOVE OF CHRIST TO ALL OF EASTERN IOWA AND BEYOND.
THESE BIBLICALLY-BASED VALUES ARE EXPRESSED THROUGH LIFECHURCH’S OWN UNIQUE CULTURE:
The Bible presents a dangerous message of life change. We believe the Bible is God's inerrant truth, and it’s the foundation of everything we do.
The love of God, demonstrated through the person of Jesus Christ, radically transforms all aspects of a person’s life.
It’s never too late to become who you might have been. We value spending our lives in the transformational pursuit of God.
We aren’t meant to be solitary disciples of Jesus. Meaningful relationships with other followers spur us on to be everything God created us to be.
Telling the truth allows us and the people we’re in relationships with to experience freedom and growth. We reveal who we are, what we love, and what we struggle with (the good, the bad & the ugly) and we allow God to shape and change us from there.
Irrelevance is irreverence! Therefore, we affirm the need to do new things in new ways, without compromising the message of Jesus Christ.
Generosity is at the heart of God and when we give generously we reflect his heart. Generosity frees our heart from greed and makes us partners with God in changing the world. We can never out-give God. Therefore, we choose to give generously.
Everyone is Valuable.
Each person is in some way a reflection of the heart of God, endowed with unique gifts and abilities and personality, without whom the rest of us would be sorely lacking.
