At our core, Life Church is called to Equip Believers, Multiply Churches, Disciple Nations and Impact Generations!
Creatively presenting the Gospel with unconditional love and acceptance, bringing restoration and wholeness to our lives, leading each person to become mature, fruitful leaders who will in turn reach others for Christ.
Vision is a clear picture of what we see the church being or doing. Vision is the product of God working in us. He creates the vision and we receive it. It becomes our rallying point, a goal toward which we move as His people press to. Vision comes to us as a deep dissatisfaction with what is and a clear grasp of what could be. Following are some of the things God has worked into our hearts and is stretching us to become: Reaching up to God in passionate worship, reaching into each other in devoted service, reaching out to the world in sacrificial love.
Reaching Up - A church in which people passionately worship God with all that they have: their hearts, their words, their bodies, their money - everything.
Reaching Into - A church in which individuals are connected to each other.
Reaching Out - A church which passes on the Faith from generation to generation, impacting our community, our island and our State in the process.
Priorities describe how we spend our time, energy and money. They are the things we do.Worship...exalting God’s presence.The highest priority of God’s people is to worship Him. Worship is giving to God what is rightly His - adoration and praise for being God.Ministry...expressing God’s love.Ministry at Life Church - Kailua flows out of two basic assumptions - First, it is based upon the compassion and mercy of God. Second, Jesus Christ as the Messiah who came to establish the Kingdom of God - that is, God’s right to rule in the world (Mt. 9:35 - 10:10).
We Value Scripture: The Bible is God’s Word of life to the world. Through the Bible we discern the voice and actions of God in human history. Through the Bible, we learn Who we worship. From the worship of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we learn how to live as citizens of His Kingdom on earth.
We Value All Generations: We celebrate all generations and acknowledge that each is essential in the Body of Christ. We honor those who have gone before us and empower those who are following. The contribution of each generation is welcomed and encouraged as we pursue our God given destiny.
We Value Pentecost: The Holy Spirit has called LiFE CHURCH to be a people who live and walk in the Spirit. We believe all the gifts of the Spirit are active today. We believe the Holy Spirit empowers the Body of Christ corporately and individually to fulfill the mission of God on the heart.
We Value Christ’s Kingdom: We know that Christ rules over all creation. Our call is to manifest the reality of His reign. By serving our communities, embracing diversity and reaching the lost, we embody Christ’s Kingdom on earth.
We Value Justice: As a church, we are called to corporately and individually see justice established. We intercede for those who have no voice. We stand with the poor, the weak and the oppressed. We will not be silent in the face of injustice. We will be a place of hope.
We Value Holiness: Holiness is beautiful. God chose us and set us apart for His glory. Our lifestyles reflect the character of the God who called us to Himself. We believe that He calls us to be holy in order to reveal His grace, mercy and love to a broken world.
We Value Generosity: All of our resources, whether material or spiritual, are gifts from a loving God. We do not live fearfully based on our lack. We live gratefully based on God’s provision. We commit ourselves to be obedient as tithers, joyful in giving and generous in heart. As He gave, we give.
