Free Life Church is a non-denominational community of believers. We aim to know and worship God in freedom and truth, and to encourage others to live and operate in the fullness that God intended for us. You can find out more about our Vision, Values, and Beliefs below. Join us on a Saturday night to experience what we are all about. We hope to see you soon!

ENCOUNTER-ENGAGE-EQUIP. The Vision of Free Life Church is to create a culture for people to experience and ENCOUNTER God, to EQUIP and disciple people as they grow in their relationship with Him and to walk in their God given purpose. We desire to see all believers intentionally ENGAGE their FLC family, their community and our world with the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ.
God is a loving Father who desires relationship with us more than we do with Him. The work of Jesus Christ on earth made a way to restore us back to an open and real relationship with God. Through all the ups and downs of life, we need constant connection with our Father.
“How much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him” – Luke 11
We Encounter Him…
1. In our Lives: We believe an encounter changes our hearts and minds. The first and greatest that we experience is our salvation, but it doesn’t end there. God has given us His Spirit to teach us how to walk with Him in our daily lives and be transformed into the image of Christ.
2. In our Services: Our services are structured around the desire for God’s presence not just man’s programs.
3. In our Worship: We have a passion for worship as “God inhabits the praises of his people” – Ps 22:3
We have a vision for God’s people to grow in strength, stability and maturity. We believe this happens when there are multiple avenues of discipleship beyond the Saturday meeting such as Life Groups, Bible Studies, Topical courses and intentional relationships.
“Give attention to reading, exhortation & doctrine…be diligent in these matters…meditate on these…that your progress may be evident to all.” – 1 Tim 4
“A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained [equipped] shall be like his teacher. ” – Luke 6:40
We desire to see believers intentionally engage with others in their church family and build relationships.
We believe in engaging with our community through outreach and ministry as well as learning to fulfill the Great Commission in our everyday lives.
Our Values & Core Beliefs
While the vision tells us what God has called us to do as a church, our values tell us exactly how we are to go about it. Our values address issues of character, faith, leadership style and heart.
