Vision, Values, and Verve
There's room for you.
That's it in a nutshell. There's room for you. God takes people from many different backgrounds, unique gifts, talents and abilities and He knits them together in love. We are His church.
Jesus made room for you. He is building His church. He puts them in families. He makes His family like a flock. (Psalm 68:6 and 107:41)
Our values are derived from the scriptures. We love God and love one another. We are passionate for the presence of God, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and the full and abundant life of Christ. We are people who love God's Word and seek to apply it in every day life. Our church was named from the following scriptures. and others similar to it.
"A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd puts the sheep before himself, sacrifices himself if necessary..." John 10:10-11
It is also written of Jesus:
"In him was life, and the life was the light of men". John 1:4
We desire and teach that Christian Life Church exists to His bring His "Life" to the world.
Verve is the spirit and vitality with which we serve. We exist to help people know Jesus, become like Him and go for Him serving the church and the world as His ambassadors and stewards
