That All May Know Him
Life Baptist Church began in the Gotthardts’ living room in 2003 with four adults, a dream for discipleship, and a lot of prayer. The first three years were foundational years. God taught us about complete dependence, abiding in Christ, and spiritual formation. The second three years were formation years. God developed Life into a loving community with a heart for Kingdom activity.
In a few short years, we’ve gone from a handful of inexperienced followers to a thriving New Testament church in 3 weekend services. We’ve seen over 350 people enter relationship with Christ and hundreds of others developed as disciples. God has allowed us to serve in the community and in 18 countries around the world.
Through it all, one lesson has been unmistakably clear:
Everything God desires to do in and through our lives, He will accomplish out of the overflow of our relationship with Him.
Our dream is to train tens of thousands of Jesus followers who relationally pursue God and serve others. While owning a building is never the goal, the new facilities will help us achieve our dream.
We will have the ability to serve up to 1,350 people through three weekend worship services.
God is giving us the opportunity to establish a permanent Christ-centered church in the middle of Sin City. If God has done this much in six years, imagine what the next 50 years will bring.
