Welcome to The Life Church of Glenview
• Loving God • Serving People • Making Disciples
Come Know God Personally and Be Transformed at The Life Church
There is nothing like living life with God. The joy, peace and love that adds flavor to life can only be provided by the Creator, who designed us for a relationship with Him. It’s amazing that the One who controls it all wants a personal, individual relationship with us! At The Life Church (TLC), we strive to love God, serve people, and make disciples. We are constantly seeing lives transformed through the power of God’s unconditional love.
We do this through:
What We Believe
The Life Church of Glenview is a church whose purpose is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. We are founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God. We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion.
God created mankind to have fellowship with Him, but they defied God by sinfully living life their own way. To rectify this, we need God’s saving grace to end our separation from Him. As the Bible teaches, we believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, not by works. Faith in Jesus is the means by which a person is justified. At the same time, a sinner must believe the gospel; he is commanded to repent of his sinful life, to be baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ, and to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues (Acts 2:38; 4:12; 8:12-17; 10:43-48; 19:1-6). Thus the various aspects of faith and obedience work together in God’s grace to reconcile us to God.
The Oneness of God
We believe that the one God who revealed Himself in the Old Testament as Jehovah revealed himself in His Son, Jesus Christ. Thus, Jesus Christ was and is God. In other words, Jesus is the one true God Jehovah manifested in flesh, for in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (John 1:1-14; I Timothy 3:16; Colossians 2:9). While fully God, Jesus was also fully man making Him the only one able to fulfill the needed sacrifice of redemption for mankind (2
Corinthians 5:19, 1 Timothy 2:5, Ephesians 4:6).
