About US

As you consider investing your heart, time, family, and finances into the life of a church, it is important for you to feel confident in the church’s vision and its leadership. 

Our goal in sharing the details of our church mission, vision, and values is that you will understand that our church is structured to support our priorities of “equipping the saints for the work of the ministry.” Our vision answers the question,  “Where are we heading”?  Vision is future-oriented and focuses on where we are going.

Our church vision reveals what we are moving toward…it sets our direction. Vision  must  be  “seen with eyes of faith,” relying on God to accomplish it.

At LifeSource, our vision is to create a culture of growing in a vibrant relationship with Jesus, reflected in our everyday lives.

Our mission declares “what we do”; It clarifies  “why we exist.” Our  mission keeps us focused on how we function and demonstrates our purpose.  
Our church mission helps us be true to, “keeping the main thing…the main thing.”

Equipping people in becoming a fully devoted follower of Jesus, caring for others,  discovering their calling, and serving with passion.

Our Culture
What do we mean by the term, church culture?
At LifeSource, our culture is the atmosphere in which we function, based on our beliefs and values. Our belief system is what influences our actions and decisions as a church.
Our Values
At LifeSource, our values answer the question… “Why do we do what we do around here?” 

Culture of Community...Living Life Together

We believe that growing in your relationship with Jesus is much easier when you have intentional relationships with people who have the same goal. We’ve found that lasting life change and intimate community happen best in smaller groups which we call “Life Groups.”

It is a place to Connect with others.

Hebrews 10:24-25 = “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

We were not made to do life alone. God created us for community, and Life Groups provide a place for you to connect with others, share life, and grow in faith together.

It is a place to Protect each other.

1 John 3:16 = “We know what real love is because Jesus gave up His life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.”

When we do life together, our problems become smaller as God uses others to bring support and encouragement to our lives. Life Groups are a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what is happening in your life and want to support you in your spiritual journey.

It is a place to Grow together.

Proverbs 27:17 = “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

We believe every person is created with God-given potential to make a difference in the world. Life Groups are a place you can grow with others to become more like Jesus and reach the potential God has put inside you.

Culture of Serving...Serve in Gifting & Passion

We believe the church is the most effective when people serve in areas of ministry that God has wired them for. This requires each person to discover their spiritual gifting and be empowered and released to serve the Kingdom of God with purpose and passion.

We believe every person is gifted to serve in ministry, not a select few.

“Now there are different gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different ministries, but the same Lord. And there are different activities, but the same God works all of them in each person.” I Cor. 12:4-6

We believe everyone who serves is a minister, not just a volunteer.

“And he himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ.” Eph. 4:11-12

We believe serving in ministry is a spiritual responsibility, not an option.

Culture of Care...Support & Care for Others

A culture of care is defined as, “practicing a lifestyle of providing care & support to another person going through a time of crisis or difficulty.”
At LifeSource, we believe the church is  to be a place of hope, healing, and support in life’s most challenging moments. We believe we have the responsibility to equip people to help  give high-quality, one-on-one Christ-centered care to people going through one of life’s difficulties.

Our commitment to care for others is based on the “one another” commands in scripture.

  • Love one another deeply—I Pet. 1:22 (21 times in New Testament)
  • Honor one another—Rom. 12:10
  • Live in harmony with one another—Rom. 12:16
  • Accept one another—Rom. 15:17
  • Instruct one another—Rom. 15:14
  • Serve one another in love—Gal. 5:13
  • Carry one another’s burdens—Gal. 6:2
  • Admonish one another—Col. 3:16
  • Encourage one another—I Thess. 5:11
  • Pray for one another—James 5:16

 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” Phil. 2:3-4

Culture of Forgiveness...Practicing Forgiveness

We believe that a lack of forgiveness is a direct contradiction to the gospel that we profess. Unforgiveness is not just a bad idea; it is a sin!
Too often we think of forgiveness as some long process we must go through before we can experience peace. Biblically speaking, forgiveness is transactional…it is an intentional choice.
LifeSource Lindale Community Church Culture of Care

Some biblical principles that guide our practice of forgiveness are:

  • God expects forgiven people to forgive others.
  • The blood of Jesus covers all sins, including the ones that wound and hurt us. 
  • Forgiveness is applying the blood of Jesus as payment in full for every wound we suffer. 
  • Forgiveness acknowledges the hurt but simply chooses not to hold it against the offender. 
  • Jesus never let the offense determine whether He would forgive someone.
“Therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and dearly loved, put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and forgiving one another if anyone has a grievance against another. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you are also to forgive.”
Col. 3:12-13

Culture of Spiritual Growth...Experiencing Life Transformation

At LifeSource, the experience of life transformation is wrapped up in the identity of who we are in Christ. We believe spiritual growth and  transformation occur by recognizing the power of Christ with us, embracing the power of Christ through us, and surrendering to the influence of God’s Spirit in us.  We accept the words of Jesus literally in John 15:5, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing.”

When we examine the spiritual growth of those in the church described in Acts 2, we see a pattern for us to follow in our individual lives.
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. 44 Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with joyful and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. Every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved." Acts 2:42-47

We see a church where…concern for others out-weighed concern for self.
We see a church where…sacrificial generosity was a normal expression.
We see a church where…community with one another was a priority.
We see a church where…relationships flourished outside the church.
We see a church where…the gospel produced life transformation.
We see a church where…spiritual freedom existed.
We see a church where…Christ-followers were committed to spiritual growth.
We see a church where…supernatural activity was commonplace.
We see a church where…those in the culture were attracted to the gospel.
We see a church where…people were added to the Kingdom daily.

“For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, 10 so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God.” Col. 1:9-10
