Love God.
Love Others.
Make a Difference.

That’s the motivation behind everything we do.

OUR BELIEFS:

GOD.

God is Trinity. He has eternally existed in three distinct persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three, the Godhead, are one in essence and nature. God the Father made everything that exists. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was sent by God the father to save sinners. He was born to the Virgin Mary. He lived a perfect life. He willfully gave his life and died on the cross. He rose from the dead on the third day. Jesus Christ will physically return one day to judge the living and dead. The Holy Spirit lives inside every Christ Follower. He empowers us to follow Christ, He helps us understand the Bible, and He gifts us to serve God.

THE BIBLE.

PEOPLE.

The Bible is God’s Word. It is completely true. Scripture is our ultimate standard in what we believe and do.
God loves people and made people in His image, but through willful disobedience all people became sinful and are separated from God.
Apart from Christ all people deserve to die and go to hell.

SALVATION.

THE CHURCH.

Salvation is made available as God’s free gift to us through Jesus’ death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead. For people to receive this free gift of salvation they must put their faith in Christ and turn from their sins. Because of salvation people don’t have to die and go to hell, but instead can have eternal life in heaven with God.
A New Testament church is a body of believers, baptized by immersion, associated for worship, service, and the spread of the Gospel to the whole world. The Lord Jesus Christ instituted two ordinances to be observed by the church: baptism and communion.

Our Pastor.

David Pretlove grew up in Dallas, Texas. He and Clare have been married since 1997 and they have six children; Lauren, Hannah, Rylee, Bradley, Teddy, and Michael. David is a graduate of Criswell College and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.  Dave served seven years as a youth pastor before starting a church in western Colorado in 2001. After seeing God do some amazing things there, David and Clare felt led of God to move to Reno and start LifeChurch. When not busy with the church Dave loves to spend time with his family, have coffee at Starbucks, or go up to Tahoe.  Dave brings poignant yet humorous messages each Sunday and also leads LifeChurch with a compelling vision to see the people of Reno and the world reached with God’s love.

COMMON QUESTIONS:

WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN I VISIT FOR THE FIRST TIME?

If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for awhile—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.

WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?

At LifeChurch your children are a top priority. Our nurseries are clean, safe, and staffed with loving workers.
We offer a dynamic children’s ministry called LCKids as well as life-changing Student Ministry.
