Legacy is a powerful word.
An aggressive word. Legacy denotes something valuable being transferred, or handed down, from one period of time to the next. Its purpose is not to memorialize the past, but to advance a secure future.
Jesus spoke of Legacy in the Great Commission:
Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
In other words: Give to others what I have given you. Make of others what I have made of you.
This legacy of Jesus has been faithfully handed down from generation to generation. Craig and Carol McLeod took what was deposited in them and launched Life Church Buffalo in 2006. Their legacy lives on in us.
And now it’s our turn. Our legacy in this world depends on how we, as one church family, decide to invest what was given to us into the lives of others. Not for our own glory, but for the one who is alive today and advancing his Kingdom through us.
We are inviting you to capture the vision of Legacy.
As one, for the One.

Life Church exists to help people know and follow Jesus step-by-step. More than ever we are discovering how critical this mission truly is. In fact, researchers now consider Western New York one of the most “post-Christian” regions in the entire country. But by God’s grace and power we are not daunted by the trend lines! Against the cultural currents, the Life Church family has welcomed hundreds of new members in the past few years - even through COVID. Far more importantly, lives are being loved into the Kingdom of God. New disciples of Jesus are being baptized. Leaders are being raised up to be a light in our community.

More about Legacy
PHASE ONE: NEW WORSHIP AUDITORIUM AND PARKING LOT - COMPLETED WINTER 2020/2021
Our vision statement calls us to be a local church who “joyfully makes room for people at every stage of belief.” As we’ve pressed the limits of our current building, we are “making room” in the most literal way. The new worship auditorium is now connected to the back of our campus, and will help us Reach & Teach with double the seating capacity and new sound and multimedia technology. Also:
The addition of new, larger adult bathrooms, gives the children’s ministry a dedicated space
Meeting rooms for regular Starting Point and Growth Path gatherings
Easily accessible prayer room
Significantly increased number of parking spaces
PHASE TWO: RENOVATED MULTI-PURPOSE COMMUNITY SPACE - TO BE COMPLETED IN 2021
Doing life together in community is a central aspect of our value to Belong & Become. In Phase Two, our goal is to replace our leaking and worn-through existing roof, renovate our Kidslife bathrooms, and update and repurpose our existing auditorium into a versatile, welcoming atrium for conversation and new connections. The atrium can also be used as:
A brighter, more intimate chapel for weddings, funerals, and community events
Special event crowd overflow
PHASE THREE: A REFRESHED EXTERIOR BUILDING FACADE PLANNED FOR 2022
The buildings that house Life Church were originally built 50 years ago to serve a different audience, with a different vision, in a different era. Through a fresh, contemporary redesign we hope the exterior of our building will help each of us Love & Serve an unchurched community with the same warm, welcoming spirit that weekly guests currently encounter on the inside.
