What We Value:

At Life Community we believe that Jesus wants people to know Him. That’s why we plant churches. We exist to move people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

At Life Community we believe in creating welcoming, genuine community in an age of fractured community. Social media will never replace true community. We want to be the kind of church where Jesus words “they will know you are believers by your love for one another” are truly lived out. We want to be a community that always invites and welcomes new people into relationship.

We believe that God wants us to be a people who learn to hear His voice and follow Him in faith – a faith that is rooted and anchored in His word, the Bible. We believe that the Bible can and should be communicated in a practical and engaging way. In both our kids and adult programs we do our best to teach the scriptures in a way that makes them come alive and applies them to everyday life.

We believe in BOTH AND: we do our best to create services where BOTH long time believers continue to grow AND where those who are new to church love to attend. At Life Community we believe in equipping: We desire to be a church that helps people move towards the things that God has placed on their hearts. We want to see people truly come alive and live out their unique purpose.

We believe that all followers of Jesus are called to influence others and to make other followers of Jesus (disciples). We believe that every member of Jesus’ body (the Church), in every profession or walk of life is called to live life as “full time ministry” – the primary job of our pastors and leaders is to encourage and equip YOU to do the work God’s calling you to do in the world.

We identify with the Vineyard family of churches in Grand Junction and around the world.
