OurMission_2Our mission is to pursue at all costs a passionate God-centered LIFEWe want to do less me-centered living and more God-centered living. When God becomes the radiant center of our lives, we begin to do more than merely exist—we begin to live. But don’t let anyone fool you; living for God is costly. At times, it means trusting Him when life makes zero sense. At other times, it means letting go of our own personal desires in order to experience what He desires.

At Life Fellowship, we believe it’s worth the effort to pursue at all costs a passionate God-centered life. There is simply nothing more rewarding than living for the One who sent His Son to die for us. It’s quite the paradox, but Jesus died for us so that we might live for Him. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). We want everyone to experience the LIFE that Jesus came to give us and the key is to pursue at all costs a passionate God-centered LIFE! We have to pursue the one who came to pursue us (Luke 19:10).

At Life Fellowship we start our services by saying, “Welcome to the place where LIFE is defined.” We say that because we believe when you pursue at all costs a passionate God-centered LIFE, your life will no longer lack definition. We define LIFE this way: real life is never fully defined until one is:

Living In Community

Investing In Growth

Finding Your Purpose

Embracing Our Mission

God wants each of us to live a fully-orbed LIFE. Some people do great living in community, but not so great embracing God’s mission. It is only when we experience each of the LIFE components that our life will feel well defined. At Life Fellowship, we believe when you pursue at all costs a passionate God-centered LIFE that you will end up living in community, investing in growth, finding your purpose and embracing your mission. When this happens, LIFE happens. When LIFE happens, God’s vision for His church happens!

OurBeliefsWe live in a culture that often shirks at the idea of absolute truth. In fact, our culture is marching to the tune of a belief known as relativism, which states, “There is no such thing as truth.” At Life Fellowship not only do we believe in truth, but we also believe truth can be known, experienced and defined. Though we live in a world full of untold mysteries and serve a God of mystery He has chosen to reveal to us some very simple, yet profound truths that we express beneath through the acrostic: D-O-C-T-R-I-N-E.

NEXT NEWCOMER’S AND LIFEQUEST CLASSES:

7-20-14 – LifeQuest Membership Class
9-7-14 – Newcomer’s Reception
9-14-14 – LifeQuest Membership Class

OUR PURPOSE:

When it comes to finding a church home, one of the most important facets we investigate is the Sunday morning service.  When we visit a church we find ourselves asking questions such as: “Do I like the music? Are the people friendly?  Can I connect with the pastor?”  If so, it’s a done deal! This is where we belong.”

Okay, that might be stretching it a little bit, but here is what we do know: Sunday morning service’s only gives people a snap shot of the church as a whole.  There is so much more to the local church than just the Sunday morning service.

 

HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER | ABOUT LIFEQUEST:

That is where Life Quest comes in.  Life Quest is a 90-minute class that is designed to help our guests gain a better understanding of what we call our “LIFE vision”.  One of our members has described Life Quest as “the place where people can really get under the hood of what we are doing.”

At Life Quest, we talk about the vision, values, philosophy and beliefs behind Life Fellowship.  It’s a great place to hear the story of how Life Fellowship came to be.  Furthermore, it provides a wonderful opportunity for meeting other guests and asking questions you may have.

In fact, Life Quest is our official membership class.  It’s at this class where the rubber meets the road. After attending Life Quest, people feel like they have a much better grasp of the vision of Life Fellowship Church.  More importantly, when people leave, they know if this is the type of church of which they want to become a part.  What you will enjoy the most about this tour through the vision of Life Fellowship is this vision can become your vision.  Life Fellowship calls others to join in our story by helping people realize that our story can become their story.  For more information about when the next Life Quest class is scheduled, please contact our administrative assistant, Brian Erwin.

ESCUCHA NUESTROS SERMONES

NUESTRA MISIÓN:
Buscar a Toda Costa y con Pasión Una VIDA Centrada en Dios

Deseamos ser menos egocéntricos y más centrados en Dios. Cuando le permitimos a Dios ser el centro de nuestras vidas, comenzamos a ser mucho mas que meramente personas existentes. ¡Comenzamos a vivir!  Pero no se deje engañar. Vivir para Dios puede ser muy costoso y a veces pudiera implicar confiar en Él aún cuando la vida no parezca tener ningún sentido. Vivir para Dios también pudiera conllevar el abandono de nuestros propios deseos personales con el fin de experimentar el deseo de Dios para nuestra vidas.

En Comunión de Vida, creemos que vale la pena el esfuerzo de buscar a toda costa y con pasión una vida centrada en Dios. Simplemente no hay nada más gratificante que vivir para Aquel que envió a Su Hijo a morir por nosotros. Suena contradictorio, pero Jesús murió por nosotros para que vivamos por él. Jesús dijo: “Yo he venido para que tengan vida y la tengan en abundancia” (Juan 10:10). Queremos que todos experimenten la vida que Jesús vino a darnos y la clave es buscar a toda costa y con pasión una vida centrada en Dios. Tenemos que proseguir en pos de Aquel que vino por nosotros ( Lucas 19:10 ).

En Comunión de Vida siempre comenzamos nuestros servicios diciendo: “Bienvenidos al lugar donde la VIDA se define.” Decimos esto porque creemos que al buscar a toda costa y con pasión una vida centrada en Dios, nuestras vidas ya no carecen de significado. Definimos la VIDA de esta manera: Nuestra VIDA estarán completamente definida tan pronto como estemos:

Viviendo en Comunidad

Invirtiendo en Crecimiento

Descubriendo nuestro Propósito

Adoptando nuestra Misión

Dios quiere que vivamos una vida a plenitud. Hay quienes dedican sus vidas haciendo una gran labor comunitaria, pero no adoptan la misión y propósito de Dios dentro de la comunidad. Nuestra vida estará bien definida solamente cuando experimentemos cada uno de los componentes de la V-I-D-A. En Comunión de VIDA, creemos que cuando buscamos a toda costa y con pasión una vida centrada en Dios, el resultado final será la Vida en comunidad, la Inversión en nuestro crecimiento espiritual, el Descubrimiento de nuestro propósito en el mundo y la Adopción de nuestra misión en él. ¡Cuando esto sucede, la VIDA se manifiesta, y de igual manera la visión de Dios para Su iglesia! ¡Bienvenidos a Comunión de VIDA!

 

¿En qué creemos?

DEIDAD Y HUMANIDAD DE CRISTO
Creemos que Jesucristo es todo Dios y todo hombre. Él existe eternamente como Dios. Hace dos mil años, Jesús tomó la forma de hombre a través de su nacimiento virginal por medio de María; vivió una vida sin pecado; murió en la cruz por los pecados de la humanidad; y se levantó de entre los muertos en el tercer día con el fin de glorificar al Dios-Padre. (Juan 1: 1, 20:28; Hechos 20: 28b; Hebreos 1:8a; Tito 1:3b, 2:13)

PECADO ORIGINAL Y SEPARACIÓN DE DIOS
Creemos que la humanidad fue creada a imagen de Dios, pero esta imagen fue envilecida por el pecado tras la caída de Adán en el Jardín del Edén. Consecuentemente, cada persona nace en pecado, con una naturaleza totalmente depravada e incapaz de obtener salvación por sí mismo. (Génesis 1:26, 2:1-17, 6:5; Romanos 3:10-19; Ef 2:1-3.)

SACRIFICIO Y MUERTE DE CRISTO POR EL PECADO Y SU RESURRECCIÓN CORPORAL
Creemos que la única esperanza para la humanidad radica en el sacrificio perfecto que Jesucristo hizo cuando entregó su vida en la cruz del Calvario. A través de su muerte, él tomó todo el pecado de la humanidad sobre sí, y tres días después resucitó venciendo la muerte física y natural. (Juan 3:16; Romanos 5:8,10:9-10)

LA TRINIDAD
Hay un solo Dios que se revela en tres Personas: Padre, Hijo y Espíritu Santo. Cada una de estas tres Personas es plenamente Dios. Sin embargo, no son tres dioses, sino UN SOLO DIOS. La Trinidad es eterna y no tiene principio ni fin. La Trinidad es santa, soberana, misericordiosa y justa. (Mateo 28:19-20; Marcos 12:29; Juan 1:14, Hechos 5:3-4; 2 Corintios 13:14; Hebreos 1:1-3; Apocalipsis 1:4-6)

EL REGRESO FÍSICO DE CRISTO
Creemos en el inminente regreso de Jesucristo. Él regresará y la Iglesia va a vivir en perfecta paz por toda la eternidad con él. (Ezequiel 37:21-28; Mateo 24:15-25; 2 Tim 3:1-5; Apocalipsis 20:1-3)

AUTORIDAD INFALIBLE DE LAS SAGRADAS  ESCRITURAS
Creemos que la Biblia es la Palabra de Dios. Creemos que fue escrita sin error en su forma original bajo la inspiración del Espíritu Santo, y que tiene el fin de atraer a las personas a Cristo e instruirlas para que sean semejantes a Él, para la gloria de Dios. Creemos que la Biblia es la autoridad absoluta para la vida y la fe.

LA SALVACIÓN ES POSIBLE POR GRACIA Y POR MEDIO DE LA FE EN CRISTO
Creemos que la salvación se obtiene únicamente cuando ponemos nuestra fe en la muerte, sepultura y resurrección de Jesucristo. La salvación es una dádiva de Dios y es imposible  obtener la salvación fuera de la gracia de Dios o por el esfuerzo de nuestras propias obras. (Juan 14: 6; Efesios 2, 8-9)

SEGURIDAD ETERNA DEL CREYENTE
Creemos que una vez un creyente pone su fe en Jesucristo, será salvo para siempre. No toda profesión de fe en Cristo es sincera, pero si la persona verdadera y genuinamente ha recibido a Cristo, nunca perderá su salvación. Sin embargo, también creemos que la salvación produce un cambio auténtico en la vida del creyente. La misma fe que Dios da para salvación es la misma fe que Dios da al creyente para ser transformado a la imagen de Cristo.  (Juan 5:24, 10:28, 13, 1, 14:16-17, 17:11; Romanos 8:29, 1 Co 6:19; Hebreos 7:25)

 

 

LifeUTitlePage

OUR PURPOSE:

Life University is part of our over-all strategy for discipleship and equipping Believers on how to live Biblically and to teach others.  Life University classes are open to everyone of any age.  You do not need to be a member to attend.  Through Life University we teach courses like Financial Peace University or deal with topics like Apologetics, Marriage and Family, Discipleship 101, Evangelism, Discipleship and Identifying Your Spiritual Gifts.  We also do verse-by-verse Bible studies, offer video classes featuring teachers like Beth Moore or James Dobson and include studies surrounding books such as “Two Becoming One” or “The Excellent Wife”.  Classes range in length from 1 week to 1 year, with most classes lasting 6-8 weeks.

We encourage our LIFE family to come 1 hour for worship and to stay a second hour to learn or serve.  Life University is an integral part of that challenge as many stay for specialized instructions and some even serve on the Life University faculty.

 

WHERE DOES LIFE UNIVERSITY MEET?

Life University meets in the classrooms throughout the Community School of Davidson.  Specific room locations can be found on our directory at the front desk or Connect Table.  Signs are also posted outside the classrooms.

 

WHEN DOES LIFE UNIVERSITY MEET?

Most classes are offered at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays with the remaining ones meeting at 9:30 a.m.

 

HOW TO CONNECT:

We hold pre-enrollment 1 month prior to the start of each class and that guarantees a seat.  If seats remain, you may attend a class on a first-come-first-served basis from week to week as long as there is available space.  For more information, contact Pastor Dan Burrell.  Below are the current classes:

NEW LIFE UNIVERSITY CLASSES ARE CURRENTLY MEETING

Instructor: Kerry Belcher
Location: Room 230
Cost: $100 (for a comprehensive box of student resources and materials)

Class: Understanding Your Bible – A study of the Doctrine of the Word of God (8 Weeks)
Instructor: Terry Oldham
Location: Room 226
Cost: Wayne Grudem’s book “Systematic Theology”
Description:  What is Systematic Theology? How do we know the Bible is true? What are the primary characteristics of Scripture?  What does “inerrant mean”?  All of these are crucial questions that believers need to understand in order to defend their faith.  This is a GREAT apologetics class!

Class: The Book of 1st Samuel (ongoing)
Instructor: Matt Hatfield
Location: Room 232
Cost: None
Description: Join LIFE Fellowship elder, Matt Hatfield as he teaches through the book of 1st Samuel.  Learn from the stories, principles and prophecies found in this rich book.  This class will be continued in the spring with a study of 2nd Samuel.

Instructor: Harold Hansen
Location/Time: Room 224 at 11:00AM
Cost: Paul Copan’s book – “Is God a Moral Monster?”
Description: Many today, even in the church, seem to think God is some sort of capricious tyrant. How are Christians to respond to such accusations? How are we to reconcile the seemingly disconnected natures of God portrayed in the two testaments? Is God arrogant and jealous?  Is He too harsh?  This is a great apologetics class taught by a LIFE University favorite!

 

 

 

Missions

OUR PURPOSE:

The missions strategy for Life Fellowship includes “Heads, Hands and Hearts”.  Through these three areas, we seek to challenge thinking, help others and change lives through the Gospel. (Matthew 27:19)  In pursuing these areas, we hope to bring people to Christ locally, nationally and internationally.  We encourage people to EMBRACE their mission by becoming personally involved in taking the Gospel to others wherever they go.  Whatever we do, through apologetics, through ministering to those who are struggling, through planting churches, through supporting international projects – we are committed that it MUST contain a Gospel core.  Money, labor, supplies or mere arguments never change lives.  Only Jesus can give real answers, real hope, real sustenance and real change.  We are all for philanthropy and believe it should be done, but our highest goal is to see people of all nations, all socio-economic strata, all intellectual and educational levels and all races hear the ONLY message that will still matter in a thousand years – that is….Jesus Saves!

Our missions ministry is established as 10% of the previous year’s actual giving plus any special financial gifts that are designated through our regular and special offerings.  The total base amount designated to missions for Fiscal Year 2013-14 is: $114,600.

ABOUT KIDLIFE:

Our mission is to partner with you in leading your child to pursue at all costs a passionate God-centered LIFE.  Through that God-centered LIFE, your child will truly know, love, and serve Jesus Christ with all of their heart.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Early Childhood (6 weeks – Preschool)

KidLIFE gives your little one a first impression of their loving heavenly Father.  They will discover who God is through these three truths:

-God loves me.

-God made me.

-Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Preschoolers will hear an engaging Bible story and experience worship through song and dance every Sunday.  During their LIFE Group time, they will meet with friends and a devoted leader who will guide them through activities and discussions to help them learn more about the God who loves them most.

Early Childhood ministry is available at 8:00 am (6 weeks – Two Year olds only), 9:30 am, and 11:00 am services.

Elementary (Kindergarten – 5th Grade)

KidLIFE invites your Kindergartener – 5th grader to grow in their relationship with God and with others by discovering how they are part of God’s big story. Your child will begin to explore who God is, what they mean to Him, how much they are loved by Him, and how they can live for Him. Before your child heads off to middle school, we want to make sure these three truths stick:

-I need to make the wise choice.

-I can trust God no matter what.

-I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Each Sunday, your child will hear a Bible story told in an unforgettable way accompanied by engaging worship through song and dance.  During their LIFE Group time, kids will have the opportunity to make friends, ask questions, and discuss what they’ve learned.  Your child will also participate in activities that reinforce the main application point of the week.  Their dedicated leader will help them understand how the Bible applies to their life and learn how to grow in their relationship with God.

 

Elementary ministry is available at 9:30 am and 11:00 am services.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE FALL

In KidLIFE, we believe that it’s important for your child to have another consistent voice invested in their lives saying the same thing about God that you are.  To partner with you more effectively in the spiritual development of your child, we will launch LIFE groups for kids beginning September 7!  We would love for you to join our KidLIFE team in this effort.  Here are the available opportunities:

- Nursery, Toddler, or Two’s Volunteer

- Preschool or Elementary LIFE Group Leader

- Bible Storyteller

- Large Group Host

- Worship Dance Leader

- Tech Team

- Supply & Prep Team

Consider becoming part of the KidLIFE team by stepping out of your comfort zone and believing God can produce extraordinary results through your faith and obedience to impact the life of a child, parent, and family in our church and community.  Contact Rebecca Peters, KidKIFE Director, at 704-607-3272 or rpeters@lifecharlotte.com to experience the magic and leave a legacy for eternity.

Our Mission:

To pursue at all costs a passionate God-centered LIFE
WHY? So that students become world-changing followers of Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 28:18-20)

The Gospel Wheel ArrowSL2

is a visual picture of Student Life’s vision for accomplishing our mission.  As a leader our desire is that you know this by heart.

Gospel:  We desire for the Gospel to be at the center of ALL we do.  (Romans 5:8, Romans 1:16-17)

 

Gather:  Sunday mornings we gather.  Cell groups gather.  Students and leaders gather for discipleship and accountability.  At camps and retreats we gather.  As we give leadership opportunities we gather. Every opportunity with our students is an opportunity for them to learn and grow. (Acts 2:42-47, Ecclesiastes 4:12, Matthew 18:20)

 

Grow:  Our prayer is that during the times of gathering our students are challenged to grow closer to the Lord.  Taking every opportunity to learn more about who He is and how we can live for His glory.
(1 Peter 2:1-3, Philippians 4:8-9)

 

Go:  We challenge our students to live their lives worthy of the Gospel.  When they GO to school, GO home, GO to practices, GO to games, GO to rehearsals, we want them to be proclaiming Christ.  We challenge them to “Love Your City” by loving their schools, their families, their friends.  Spring Break mission trips provide them with opportunities to GO. We pray and believe that the Lord will use our students to change the world as they GO.
