LifeChurch has become known in the region as a welcoming community of Christians and guests captured by it's spirit and vision. Enthused by the opportunity to be involved in a life giving and growing church, we place an extraordinary emphasis on ministry to children and young people, as well as the weekend worship experience for adults.
Our vision comes from Romans 12:2 where God states that He gives us “Transformed Lives”. A transformed life has gone from being drained by this world to being energized by God. A transformed life is directed by Gods purpose and filled with God’s joy and peace.
Our mission is simple; in fact Jesus summed it up in Matthew 22:37-39 "Love the Lord and love your neighbor." At LifeChurch, we believe it is our responsibility to "Connect with God and with People."
Our main location is in Gorham and the other is in Bath. We are partners with the Willow Creek Association (WCA). The WCA provides training, materials, and support to local churches.
This is the story of LifeChurch to date. You could be a part of the chapters yet to unfold. Why not come and explore the opportunities?
In November of 1996 Pastors Brian, Racquel, Gordy and Kim launched LifeChurch in a hotel ballroom. A total of twelve people came! In that meeting, Pastor Brian shared vision and future of LifeChurch and how they could help connect the people of Southern Maine to God. This was the birth of LifeChurch and many lives have been changed.
After two and a half years of meeting in a hotel, LifeChurch had outgrown the ballroom and God was about to do something amazing. A beautiful church facility in Gorham, ME became available and was actually given to LifeChurch.
From here, we continued to live out the vision of connecting people and reaching out to the community with the life changing message of God’s love. Since then, hundreds of people have been connected to God through the many extensions of LifeChurch.
