  • Living a life devoted to the Lord and pursuing humility, holiness, and godliness.
  • Attending and participating in weekly worship, Bible studies and other practices to grow in Christ-likeness.
  • Committing to our church body for fellowship.
  • Pursuing a lifestyle that continually points to Jesus Christ.
  • Seeking unity with Christ, the mission of LifeChurch, the staff and members of LifeChurch. Care for your own relationship with Christ.
