Every church needs to have a purpose statement that answers the question, “why do we exist?” At Life Church, we filter every idea, program, and expense through our purpose statement. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our purpose, then we don’t do it.
Our purpose at Life Church is summarized in a single statement:
Helping People Connect with God, Connect with Others and Grow in Christ.
- Connecting people with Jesus.
- John 14:6 (ESV) Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
- Connecting with Others.
- Acts 2:46 (NIV84) Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,
- GROWing in Christ.
- Colossians 1:28 (ESV) Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.
