At Life.Church, we're all about the "capital C" Church. No single church can reach everyone, but when the body of Christ works together we can reach the world. We love to partner with local pastors and church leaders who share our passion for leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
That’s why the Life.Church Open Network exists. We’ve made the entire library of Life.Church resources, trainings, and apps available for free to every church and created a vibrant online community where you can grow alongside others.
