We are live—TUNE IN NOW!

Beliefs

Our Mission

Our Mission at Real Life Church is simple—we want to
help people find and follow Jesus.

Core Beliefs

The Bible

We affirm that Scripture is God’s unique and inspired word (2 Peter 1:20-21), preserved through history for the purpose of giving us the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15).

The Trinity

We worship one God who exists in eternal love between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Father

We worship God the Father who is revealed as the Creator of all things (Genesis 1:1, Romans 1:20).

Jesus

We worship and follow Jesus the Messiah, God’s only begotten son, fully God and fully human, who took up his cross and beckoned us to follow (Mattew 16:24-25) and was physically raised from the dead (Luke 23:44 – 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8) thereby providing the capacity for salvation.

Holy Spirit

We worship the Holy Spirit of God (John 4:24), the Spirit of the crucified and risen Christ who is our Advocate and Comforter, given that we might be convicted of sin (John 16:5-16) and thus walk in faithfulness and give and receive forgiveness.

Humanity

We recognize God’s aim is to save all people. Although God created everything and called it “good,” sin entered the world. As the recipients of God’s grace in Christ (Ephesians 2:8-10) we become a new creation (Jeremiah 31:31-34; 2 Corinthians 5:17) and we work toward the future renewal of this world (Romans 8:19, 2 Peter 3:11-13) to live in complete community with one another under Christ through eternity.

The Church

Real Life Church is a small part of the global Church as the community of salvation, the bride of Christ (Revelation 21:1-2). In the midst of human sin and need, God’s mission to save the world is directed toward, and is experienced by, being in community with one another.

Baptism

We practice baptism as the symbol of one’s new birth into the new creation. It depicts our entrance into Christian community that is ruled by the story of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. With a new identity, we are symbolizing dying to ourselves (Romans 6:3-4) in allowing the Spirit to transform us into the unified community of those who belong to God (Matthew 28:18-20). We affirm the pattern in Scripture to be believer’s baptism by immersion (Acts 2:38-41).

Communion

We practice communion on a weekly basis as the symbol of coming together and partaking of the same meal that Jesus had with his disciples before he was crucified. By doing so, we are affirming Christ’s presence among us, and in one another (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). Participation in this practice is open and membership within the church is not required.

Ever wonder how Real Life Church came to be?

Core Values

Biblical

Learning God’s Word AND putting it into practice is what following Jesus is all about.

Matthew 7:24-29, 1 Corinthians 8:1-3 ]

Missional

We feel the best way to change the world is to change our neighborhoods…one cul-de-sac at a time. We believe our church should make a positive impact in the neighborhood it is in…and our Life Groups should make a positive impact in the neighborhoods they are in. Church operates best in the context of local community.

Acts 2, 4 ]

Real

We want to remove the obstacles that keep people far from God and help bring people back to Him. We believe church should meet people where they are in life and use contemporary language and popular culture as a means to share the timeless truth of God’s Word.

Matthew 9:9-13, Acts 17:19-23, 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 ]

Generous

We want to be known as a people who are generous – giving of our money, our talents, our time, whatever God would ask of us.

2 Corinthians 9:11 ]

Multiplying

We want everyone to come to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ, so we set out to multiply our own faith in others by being relational, transparent, and knowledgeable of the Bible and being the example of Christ to others.
