LifeWay Church seeks to maintain a clear
vision with the following goals and planned strategy of how to
accomplish them in order that we might demonstrate the present day
expression of the life and ministry of Christ.
Environment of Acceptance
All People matter to God. We provide an atmosphere of love and
The Bible is the foundation for transformation and growth in the lives
of individuals. We present scripture in a relevant manner, as the guide
for successful living.
We conduct inspiring services, which glorify
God. We celebrate God's love and the victory of Christ and our faith
through vibrant praise and worship, recognizing the Presence of God
manifested "in the midst" and following His leading and order in worship
and teaching according to God's Word.
Spiritual Life & Kingdom Lifestyle. Each believer developing a
daily, authentic relationship with God that is reflected in the communion,
character and quality of his/her life. Being dependent upon the
supernatural empowering of the Holy Spirit to live godly in Christ and
being committed to prayer and spiritual warfare to take back from the
enemy of Life all that he has stolen. Each member is involved in
“restoring the breach” of those “waste places” and people long devastated,
and bringing shalom (wholeness) through the restoration that God now
provides through the Body of His Son.
The Centrality of
Relationships & Body Life.
Building relationships, strong marriages and families that reflect our
covenant with God and each other through our covenant communion. As
members "one of another," we do not belong to ourselves, for we were
"bought with a price." Living the "life or the Body" is a consummate
reality, and the Heavenly Jerusalem is our "chief joy." Through support
groups each member "builds up" the body by encouragement and the
accountability of small groups.
Building Strong Families
We emphasize biblically healthy and caring relationships. We
provide and environment which strengthens marriages and families.
We disciple and develop the children and youth of our church and
community. We emphasize their value, importance and influence
through student ministry.
Being trained by and submitted to God's government of apostles, prophets,
pastors, evangelists and teachers in the church.
Equipping People. Identifying and helping to develop the
spiritual gifts of each member so that he/she might have a vital role in
ministering to people's needs through specific team ministry in the
Fulfilling the Great Commission to reach
multitudes of unchurched people through every possible means so that they
may come to know the fulness of Christ and His Kingdom that exists as
members of His Body.
Realizing that "keeping faith" (Mal. 2:10,16b) confirms the efficacy of
His Grace and reality of the working of His Word in our lives to fulfill
these common convictions.
Cooperating with other church bodies so as to demonstrate a witness of one
Body and Church.
