We are Helping People to Live a Better Life!
It is our goal to build strong families and strong communities. However, we must first begin the building process with the individual–You.
We help individuals live the abundant life that Christ provided for them on the cross. Your life can always get better! At Kingdom Life Church, we are reaching people through Human Services, Education, and Media. These areas will give us the opportunity to touch the lives of many people in need of the Good News of Jesus and show them the life He created for them – that’s what we’re all about.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible written Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22)
We believe that man is a sinful being in need of redemption (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Psalm 51:5; Ecclesiastes 7:29; John 6:44; Romans 5:12-21; 1 Corinthians 2:14).
We believe that for salvation of the lost and for sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential (Luke 7:50, 24:47; Romans 10:13-15; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 2:15; Ephesians 2:8, 9; 2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 2:11, 3:5-7).
We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer. (Isaiah 53:4, 5; James 5:14, 15; 1 Peter 2:24)
We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is given to believers who ask for Him. (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:4)
We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world. (Romans 8:5; Philippians 2:12, 13; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; 1 John 2:29)
We believe in the personal, imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
