My wife & I began attending Life Church a few months ago and were referred by our neighbors who serve at the church. The word from Pastor Mark was good. His straightforward and practical biblical teaching was refreshing. The emphasis placed on the word and the Holy Spirit was strong, and the alter calls pulled at our hearts. We were weary of trying to solve the challenges of life on our own. I was raised in a very good Christian home and accepted Jesus earlier in life, but in recent years I wasn’t living my life close to the Lord. We realized that the Lord had blessed us greatly, and we knew it was time for us to fully accept his love and grace, and begin giving back.
While attending a Sunday service we went forward. I went to renew my faith, and my wife went to accept Jesus as her savior. We later received water & Holy Spirit baptisms.
We were compelled to grow further in the lord. We attended the Growth Track sessions 101, 201, & 301, joined a life group, and I began serving as an usher, which has allowed me to meet many of the great folks attending the church and serving the lord. Also, we both enrolled in Life Church Bible College and have begun attending this year’s classes.
We are enjoying our journey together to become closer to the lord, and Life Church is helping us realize Gods plan in our lives.
