WHO WE ARE

 

First, we want to say thank you for visiting our site. We are so honored that you would take the time to learn a bit about us.

 
LIFEChurch got her start in 1990 as Leona Baptist Church. A group of 39 faithful-children of God began praying and saw the need for a church in the Leona Community. The church began in the Old Red School Building on FM 977 where Leona Elementary used to hold school but space was limited and the church was growing.
 
As LBC grew, the need for more space was evident and so the land across the street was purchased. The plans were drawn up, construction began and within a few months the present sanctuary/fellowship hall was finished and opened for worship.
 
During the last 27 years, there have been countless baptisms, children and youth ministry events, revivals, worship services and special events that highlight the impact that LBC has had on this community.
 
So, in June of 2016 LBC called its former pastor back to lead the church into the necessary steps of becoming a relevant and effective church in our community again. After a lot of prayer, and we do mean a lot, it was decided that changes needed to be made in who we are.
 
Fast forward to 2017. In our ever changing world, our church realized that we weren’t reaching and ministering to people as effectively as we once were. It was not that our beliefs, values or spiritual integrity had changed but that our community had changed. What used to work to reach people just didn’t have the same impact as it once did. We knew we had to do something in order to reach future generations.
 
 
 

Here are some things that have been going on:

  • We have changed our name to LIFEChurch to bring a new, fresh and creative approach in reaching people for JESUS.
  • We will transition the adult Sunday School hour on Sunday mornings to weekly LIFEGroups – whose goal is to be more intentional about relationships, discipleship and helping people get through day to day life while remaining unmoved in our belief that God’s Word has all the answers.
    • We transitioned to LIFEWorship.  This is where we can “ready” our hearts to receive what God has in store for us. This also begins the start of our dialogue with God as we communicate to Him through praise and worship.  This allows the power of God to pave the way for us to receive His Word at…
    • LIFEService, which has a more personable feel and uses a translation of the Bible that will help you understand and apply biblical truths to your life.  We want this time to strengthen your understanding of God’s Word and grow you into a deeper relationship with Him.
  • You ARE welcome here no matter what!  This is about a relationship with the Living God, not a religion. We are to love God and love others.  It’s that simple.
  • We will remain Biblically focused and driven.  We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and is THE truth and has the answers for every question in life.
 
These are just some of the ways LIFEChurch is going to impact our community.
