LIFE.CHURH CAPACITY AND MEMBERS
The life.church has a weekly attendance of about 85,000 people.
Just like every other church with target and focus, Life.church has some specific beliefs some of which includes ;
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.
He has eternally existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the Son of God.
He is coequal with the Father and Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.
The Holy Spirit lives in each Christian from salvation.
The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ.
The Bible is God’s Word to us.
Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, wrote the Bible. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. Because God inspired it, it is truth without error.
People are the supreme object of God’s creation.
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” Sin separates us from God and causes many problems in our life.
Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it.
We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty.
People will exist eternally with or without God.
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Christ.
In addition to Essential Beliefs, we have liberty in Non-Essential Beliefs.
Accept the one whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matter.
