Misson and Vision
RealLife Church exists to help you discover the real-life that God intended you to live in Jesus, through the Holy Spirit.
Then watch what God can do through you.
To love the Lost - Mend the Broken - Train the Church - Send the Called!
Our mission is also our process
How we love the lost
Real love should simply be a demonstration of Christs love in and through us, through acts of compassion, service, and missional engagement within the community that we are seeking to reach. We consider reaching people to be one of our greatest responsibilities of showing Christ’s love to the world for everyone that his sacrifice paid full price for. Our weekend services and LifeGroups serve people at all stages in their spiritual journey, but are primarily geared towards reaching the lost and unchurched.
Our desire is to reach the un-churched and those who don't typically 'fit' into regular religious church life.
We are a family church and not just an 'addict church', but strive to be Jesus-like in our attempt to rescue and work with those who are incarcerated, addicted, homeless, and trafficked.
God sets the lonely in families, the church should be like connective tissue, enabling those who've been severed from God's plan to 'fit in' with love and acceptance.
How we mend the broken
Through our life groups (small group bible studies) and intentional discipleship homes.
Real life change happens in the context of relationships. We value starting Small groups and LifeLine Homes. In the Bible, they worshipped in the temple but ministry happened house to house. True relationships and discipleship happen in circles, not rows. People cannot begin to experience the real-life that God intended them to live with broken places in their lives.

How we send the called
All of us were created by God to make a difference in the life of another person. God has a place for you where your unique abilities, God given gifts, and passions can touch the lives of others. We believe that your life will never make sense until you find, develop, and fulfill that purpose.
“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
“Now God gives us many kinds of special abilities…and there are different kinds of service to God (ministry)…All of you together are the one Body of Christ and each of you is a separate and nec¬essary part of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-5, 27 (LB)
AT RLIB: Every person is a Minister. Every task is Important. Everyone has a primary gifting in Some Area.
Our major goal is to see people plugged in to ministry at their highest capacity. One of our sayings is that God didn’t bring people to our church to fulfill the vision of RealLife Church, but God brought them here so that they could fulfill the vision that God has for their life. That they could be trained and stand our the shoulders of experienced people to meet their potential.
In seeking to accomplish that goal, we realize that ministry is the greatest way to prepare people, so we are developing and planning to launch a network of house churches. That leaves a lot of space for people to get involved at every level. With an abundance of opportunities the process of discipleship is able to be accomplished at a much quicker rate then if you had to wait until there was an opening to get involved.
