Description of Organization

Formed in 2014 after separating from a large, multi-site parent church, Life Church is an independent, contemporary, missionally-engaged congregation averaging 600 adults and children in weekly attendance. Just as our church itself is young, our church body is predominantly young. (Typically, 30% or more of the people in the building where the church gathers on Sunday are elementary-aged or younger.) Many young families call Life Church home, and our staff and leaders reflect the youthful vitality and makeup of our congregation.

Life Church is elder-led, complementarian, and loosely affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. Our leaders have been influenced heavily by ministries such as The Gospel Coalition and 9Marks.

One of the larger evangelical churches in Rowan County, we are known in our community for loving our city well, for our casual, welcoming, and down-to-earth worship environment, for gospel-centered small group gatherings, for excellence in contemporary musical worship, and for expositional preaching. We also enjoy inviting students from local colleges and universities, especially Catawba College, to worship and serve alongside us, and many current and former staff members at Life Church have come to us first as Catawba students.
