 … become all God has destined you to be!


Grace Life Center is a member  church of the Charismatic Renewal Ministries, a ministry with a vision to prepare men for God’s great harvest / revival in our life times. 


Our mission as a church is to recruit, resource and release a generation  of Jesus disciples who love God, love God’s people and love God’s world in response to God’s love for them.



To become like Jesus by being with Jesus in order to live like Jesus.
We believe that as we become like Jesus by being with Jesus, we shall live like Jesus in this life, so that, in partnership with Jesus, we can experience revival and receive God’s best for our lives in our lifetimes.



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 


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!


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.

    The core truth of the gospel is that Almighty God has chosen to be the Father of everyone who believes in Jesus. The Fatherhood of God underlines the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus. He redeemed us that God would call us “sons” and we may come to know Him and relate with Him as Father. Listen as Dr. Cosmas Ilechukwu, General Overseer of Charismatic Renewal Ministries, brings our 2016 Revival Camp Meeting to a close as he teaches on how we can actualize this truth in our lives.

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

Amazing Grace Christian Web Banner
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.


3 Ways To Live In Order To Grow In Grace

In 1 Peter 3:18, Peter specifically instructs all who have put their faith in Jesus to “grow in grace and in the knowledge of (who they are in) the Lord Jesus Christ“. In recent times, the Lord has helped me understand God’s Grace as “that which God has done in me, to me and for me in Jesus in order to bless me, without any contribution for me“. In other words, growing in God’s literally means growing in who I really am in Jesus; growing into that person who God has made me to be in Jesus. No wonder Paul says in  1 Corinthians 15 that “I am who I am, by his grace”! Alleluia! As a result, I would like to share with you, 3 ways I have now determined to live my life in other to grow in grace – in order to become more and more who I am in Jesus, not because of what I have done, but because of all God has done:
1. I have determined to live like someone who no longer has a sin problem: because in Jesus, God has dealt with all of my sins – past, present and future – yes even the sin I will commit tomorrow! I know it can be hard to comprehend that even my future sins have been forgiven. But the question we need to ask is this: when exactly did God forgive us our sins. Was it the day we accepted Jesus and put our faith in Him? Is it whenever we ask Him for forgiveness that He forgives us? The answer is no! Paul says in Ephesians 1:3 – 6 that God ordained and commanded all our sins forgiven in Christ before the foundation of the world. And that 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ showed up as the Lamb of God to physically die on the cross to execute the Divine command. All of this happened before I was even born, with all my sins still yet to be committed, including the sin I will commit tomorrow! All I am really doing now  – the day I put my faith in Jesus and anytime after that whenever I sin  –  is to come to him and confess i.e. agree with God about my sin (1 John 1:9). And what do I agree with God? That my sin, though, many and as red as scarlet, have all been paid for and that I am now as white as snow. I come to receive the forgiveness that has been offered.  Therefore, I no longer have a sin problem! All my sins have been paid for and done away with! I do not have to ever fear or worry if I may or may not be forgiven. God has not only forgiven all my past sins; He has in the past forgiven all my sins! So how do I grow in grace –  change my mind about sin and learn to live like someone who no longer has a sin problem.
