"They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved." Acts 2:42-46

When we examine the life experience of those in the church described in Acts 2, we see an entirely different experience than what is the norm for many in our culture…

We see a church where…concern for others outweigh 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 common place.
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 on a daily basis.

Foundational Beliefs
LifeSource Community Church is guided by certain foundation beliefs and core values. Conservative and evangelical, our statement of theological foundations includes, but is not limited to the following…

Absolute Truth
We believe in the accuracy, authority and power of the Holy Scriptures as the inspired Word of God.
One God
We believe in a personal God who has revealed Himself as One; God exists in three persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Each is distinct—yet all of One essence and deity.
Uniqueness of Christ
We believe Jesus Christ to be the virgin born Son of God, who lived in the flesh, died for the sins of the world, was buried, rose again and ascended to the Father according to the scriptures.
Forgiveness by Grace
We believe that the death of Jesus Christ was the final and complete sacrifice for the sins of all humanity. Salvation is obtained by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. All who repent of their sin and accept Jesus Christ as Savior are born again to eternal life as Children of God.
Indwelling Power
We believe that life on earth is to be lived in the power of the Holy Spirit, who indwells all believers, enabling and empowering them to live distinctive lives in the life and power of Jesus Christ.
Marriage & Family
We believe God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church.
Baptism & Lord’s Supper
We believe baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby all believers, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
