Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family
Here's the deal, Life Church cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. We are a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.
We are a Bible-based, evangelistic, Spirit-empowered church.
1.) SALVATION: faith in Jesus' atoning death for our salvation (Matthew 4:16);
2.) PRAYER: daily time with God (Psalm 5:3);
3.) SCRIPTURE: applying Scripture to become more like Jesus (Philippians 1:6);
4.) SERVING: from a healthy spiritual life, serving in our giftings (Romans 12:4-5).
Life Church was started in February 1985, as a Home Bible Study of Lake City Church, Madison, WI. It then became Sunday night Satellite Service meeting at the Gonstead Chiropractic Clinic in September 1985. On Palm Sunday, 1986, we began morning worship services. In July 1987, we moved to 104 S. Grove Street as a store-front church. Then, in September 1990, we purchased a corn-storage building and 7 acres at 2770 Brandywein Trail, which is our present home. Our first service was on a cold Sunday, February 3rd, 1991!
We believe that God has chosen the local church to represent His life and His love to the community. Through strong, growing, healthy local churches, people should have the opportunity to hear the Gospel, come to know Jesus Christ, become a part of the body of believers, and be discipled. At Life Church, our first priority is to be a thriving local church for the people of Mt. Horeb and surrounding communities.
