Life Church strives to be a discipleship oriented congregation taking the Good News of the Gospel to the world; equipping, defending, planting, reproducing and sending God’s people to make disciples of all nations.
(2 Peter 3:9; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 4:12; Matthew 28:18-20). ALCC is a Jesus-centered Church. Jesus is everything to us; He is our Foundation, the center of all we do and all we hope for--all we desire is found in Him.
Our mission is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. That's how Life Church is able to make a difference in the lives of so many people, and it's the motivating dynamic behind everything we do. Come grow with us!
