The mission of LifeQuest is to connect with Jesus on a journey to transform lives and send disciples.
We exist to connect people to Jesus. This is the most important part of our mission. As a community, we strive to be prayerfully spirit-led and responsive to God’s will. Healthy relationships in our lives help connect others, and us, to Christ. By intentionally doing life together, we have the opportunity to grow closer to Him.
His Life is our Quest. Life is a journey and it is reflected in our name. We are called to continually go through a process of aligning our lives with Christ. The great thing is, we don’t have to do it alone. We intentionally walk, pray, and grow alongside each other as God heals our pain and forgives our sin with love and grace.
Cycles of life are evident all around. One thing leads to another. Once we are connected and transformed, God calls us to go and make disciples. What we learn is passed on to help others who, in turn, multiply the impact by influencing others. Whether sent across a room or an ocean, we have the opportunity to use our talents to glorify God through our words and actions.
His Life is our Quest
Life is a journey to share and to live to the fullest. We strive to go beyond simply doing church. Through connecting with Jesus, we have the privilege of being the church. This is why we are intentional about doing life together and extending our impact beyond our doors and into the lives of our neighbors and friends.
Our community is authentic, informal and accessible. We aren’t afraid to admit our shortcomings and remove barriers that can limit the belonging and involvement of others. We intentionally pray for each other and help each other out.
Giving Church a New Shape
Our community is a unique expression of the church. We are both experiential and experimental, responding to the spirit with the freedom and flexibility to try new things. God wants us to be participants and not spectators.
Regardless of where we worship, where we’re from, or where we live, our ultimate goal is to respond to Christ’s call and make disciples. Through both invitation and challenge, discipleship is the intentional process of growth that changes us to be more like Christ each day.
We don’t just go to church, we are the church. This is why we invest in people rather than buildings. Through innovative partnerships with businesses, individuals and other ministries, we focus on growing relationships by connecting others to those already connected.
God calls us all to go—even if only to the next room, or the next block. Serving and praying with and for others is an expression of the mission of Christ. Service together can lead to transformation as we help others experience God’s love, justice and grace.
Gathering Across Generation and Culture
It is amazing what God teaches us through the experiences of others. Both a child’s faith and the wisdom that comes with life experience, create an environment for praying, worshipping and learning as a family that spans both age and background.
As a member of the Reformed Church in America, we believe Jesus, the Son of God, entered our broken world and lived a life that reveals God to us and tells us who we are: beings created by God in God’s image who suffer in a broken world.
Jesus lived a life of perfect obedience to God and suffered and died on a cross to create the way for people to be reconnected to God, as we were created to be. God brought Jesus to life again—defeating death—and Jesus returned to his Father in heaven.
Because Jesus died and rose again, we can live in hope for a better life in this world and in eternity with God.
To connect with this new life and hope, we need to recognize that we have big issues that we can’t fix ourselves, accept Christ’s claim that he is the Son of God and the way to new life, and allow God to lead us into a new relationship with him.
