Our vision is to be a community of Jesus followers who are bringing God’s solution to human problems.

We exist to bring divine solutions to human problems by drawing people to God’s love and helping them become devoted followers of Jesus who love God, God’s people and God’s world in response to God’s love for them.

 
 

OUR MOTTO / BELIEF

We desire to become like Jesus by being with Jesus in order to live like Jesus.
 
We believe that as we learn to live like Jesus in this life, we shall, in partnership with Jesus, bring divine solutions to human problems (Revival), leading to a great harvest of souls to the glory of our God & Father. 

 

CONNECT WITH A COMMUNITY OF FRIENDS

At Grace Life Center, we are more than just a gathering of individuals on a Sunday. We are building a community of Jesus followers, friends that will do life together.
 
We do life together in worship (speaking to God), bible instruction (God speaking with us), fellowship (speaking to one another) and expressions of faith (speaking to the world in acts of kindness).
 
If you long to connect with such an authentic and loving community of friends – we invite your to complete the form below and we will have someone get back to you on how you can get involved.
 
Also, if you’d like someone to pray with on ANY issue, call the Grace Life Prayer 24-hour Prayer Hotline – 657.206.PRAY (657.206.7729).
 
Our prayer counselors are available to pray with you. If you are unable to reach a counsellor, please leave a message and someone will call you back as soon as possible. Remember – “the effectual, fervent prayer of the righteous makes much power available, mighty in its working…” – James 5:16 

I’M NEW HERE

We ‘re glad that you have stopped by to learn what we’re all about. We hope you see our passion for Jesus and His gospel. He is the only reason that we do what we do — preaching, children’s ministry, outreach, and even singing. If you were to ask us to describe ourselves in one sentence, we would say, “We’re a gospel centered, Spirit-filled, family-oriented & city focused, church community.”

What should I expect if I attend a church meeting? What should I wear? What’s expected of me? 

Our regular Sunday services follow a simple pattern consisting of prayers, God-centered music, traditional hymns and then a time for bible teaching. Although we are a charismatic church, we welcome people from all kinds background to worship with us. So come as you are! We care about you — not what you wear or your background. Our desire is that by worshiping with us, you would meet Jesus for yourself – because it’s all and only about him! And no, guests are not required to make a donation or give an offering but are welcome to do so if they want to.

What about my kids? Is it okay to bring my kids to Church? 

Yes, this is not a problem. Some young children may find it difficult to leave their parents in an unfamiliar setting. Yet we believe our children’s ministry, in the long run, is the best place for helping children learn more about God. We hope that families who begin to attend our church will come to appreciate the value of their children developing close friendships with their peers in the context of the local church. 

Concierge Service

For all our first time visitors and out-of-town guests, we can’t wait to give you the royal treatment when you come visit Grace Life Center. So please, let us know you’re coming and we’ll make you feel relaxed and right at home. No pressure!
 

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME A JESUS FOLLOWER? 

How can I have a relationship with Jesus? How can I become a follower of Jesus? 

We are glad that you are interested in knowing Jesus  personally and following Him joyfully. Knowing Jesus is one of the simplest thing a person can do. There are 3 simple steps to take.

  • First, realize and accept that you are and will never be good enough. 
    No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one.” We cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Chris.
  • Second, recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you because of your sin & repent.
    The Bible tells us that “God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners.” This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.
  • Finally, put your trust in Christ as your Lord and Savior, accepting his sacrifice on the cross as the full and final payment for your sin.
    You must depend on Jesus alone for your forgiveness, and God will give you his acceptance and eternal life as gift. If you are ready to do that, then why not pray right now and tell God that you are trusting His Son, Jesus.
Dear God, I know I’m a sinner. I know my sin deserves to be punished. I believe Christ died for me and rose from the grave. I trust Jesus Christ alone as my Savior. Thank You for the forgiveness and everlasting life I now have. In Jesus’ name.
 
If you just said this prayer, congratulations on your decision to follow Jesus. We would love to hear from you. Please contact us using the contact us form and we will send you free resources to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus.

Let us know your decision today.

    Bringing God’s Solution to Human Problems – Okezie Ofoegbu
    God's ways are not our ways; His thoughts are not our thoughts. As high as the heavens are from the earth, so are His thoughts and His ways higher than our ways and thoughts. Based on this, how God would solve human problems must be radically different from how we would go about solving same problems.

    Fully devoted followers of Christ are under-going "Christ Formation" - the process of living on the outside who they are on the inside. However, because we all drift away from that which is good for us, commitment is not enough to succeed in following Jesus; you need connections.

Receiving & Growing In New Life

Following Jesus and living the life God has called us and desires for us to live as Christians is not difficult. It is IMPOSSIBLE! We need the power of the Holy Spirit to live this life! Many struggle because they try to achieve by natural means what can only be by supernatural means – by the power of God’s Spirit. 

At Grace Life Center, we have recently launched our Life In The Spirit Seminars, a seven-week course that will introduce participants to a life lived under the grace and power of God available to all in the Holy Spirit.  The seminar helps participants discover the power and passion God has made available so that we can live our life to the fullest.

How Little People Bring Divine Solutions To Big Human Problems

 

“Don’t fear, little flock. Your Father wants to share his kingdom with you” (Luke 12:32, ERV)

 Contrary to what many people think, Jesus did not come to solve the world’s problems. Rather He came to make it possible for God, through Jesus, to live in us and through us, solve the problems of the world around us. Jesus came so we could be a people who, in partnership with Him, are bringing divine solutions to human problems. In Colossians 1:27, Paul did not say that Christ is the HOPE of Glory; rather he said “Christ IN US is the hope of glory”. Our opening text confirms this truth and shows us how God works in and through His people to bring divine solutions to big human problems:

A Radical Thought

 
 
A skeptic once asked a pastor “where is this heaven you keep taking about”? And the man of God gave a wise answer: “Heaven is at the end of a life lived following Jesus”. Because as we follow Jesus, we soon quickly realize our need for salvation and we turn to him to save us. As we follow Jesus, we realize our need for the Holy Spirit and ask Him to baptize us with the Holy Ghost and Fire. As we follow Jesus, we come to see that following Him means walking in love, even love for those who hate us – and we call on Him to love through us. As we follow Jesus, we come to see that it is not our works but His love that saves us – and so we hold on to him with all we’ve got. As we follow Him, we see His extraordinary power unleashed in our ordinary lives – and we are never proud for we know it is He working through us!
 
So here is a radical thought: what if we changed our message from an invitation to make heaven to an invitation to follow Jesus?  What if we stopped preaching the gospel of “the minimum requirement to enter heaven when you die” and started preaching the gospel of “the kingdom of heaven” i.e. bringing heaven to earth, through the power and presence of God available to the followers of King Jesus.

A Person Sent By God

“There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.”  Joh 1:6 (NKJV)

To be successful is to be a person who accomplishes what God has sent you to do. It means living like someone who is sent by God. What God has called us to do as His children in Grace Life Center is very simple: to become fully devoted followers of Jesus who, in partnership with Jesus, are bringing revival (i.e. divine solutions to human problems) to their generation. What an awesome privilege we have. To be fully devoted simply means that Jesus is all we live for. Our lives are a sacrifice to Jesus. While this is a simple goal, it is not easy. But it is achievable. Here are three actions we can commit to that would increase our chances of being successful in this assignment to be fully devoted followers of Jesus who are bringing God’s solutions to human problems:

3 Ways God’s Grace Will Transform Your Life

 
 
Grace is what God has done for us, to us and in us to bless and favor us, without any contribution from us. And here is the AMAZING thing – the bible says everything we receive from God we receive by grace! We are saved by grace, we are healed by grace, we prosper by grace, and we are blessed by grace! It is All of God and NONE of us
!  Every time I think of this, my heart just wants to shout! Who am I that God would love me so? What have I done to deserve such a love? Nothing. As God says in Deuteronomy 7:7 – “He loves me because…He loves me!” So this morning, let me share with you 3 ways this truths have completely transformed the way I live:

1. I now have the right reason to live right: without God’s grace, without knowing and appreciating all that God has done for me, in me and to me, without any contribution from me – I was bound to seek to please God out of fear or pride. Either I was trying to do right because I was afraid of punishment or because I felt that my actions would earn me some rewards. But now, because of grace – knowing God has done ALL for me ALREADY – I can finally now seek to live right for one reason only – love.

4 Important Ways Receiving God’s Kingdom’s Will Change You

 
On Sunday March 22, 2015 we celebrated our Friends & Family Day. Dr. Adeola Ilechukwu was our guest speaker and she shared a message that was a real blessing to me and others in attendance. The thrust of her message was simply this: at the heart of the prayer “Thy Kingdom Come” is a request or change in our lives. The Kingdom of God cannot come into your life without triggering a process that brings about radical transformation in your life.
 
She went on to share four area of our lives we can expect change in our lives if we have received God’s kingdom:
 
1. Change in your mindset: the way you view life, and the world will change radically when you receive the kingdom. Receiving Jesus does not turn bad people into good people; it makes dead people alive! That means a completely new life; a completely new way of looking at the world.

Hope Can Find You This Easter

[widget id="text-41"]
 
Jesus of Nazareth shares many wonderful attributes with other great leaders of faith. Where Jesus is clearly unique from all others is in the claim that after he died He rose again from the dead and was seen ALIVE by over 500 witnesses over a 40 day period! I always used to wonder why this claim was such a big deal.  Until one day about a year ago it struck me.
