Do MORE WITH
At Life Church, part of our vision is that we are a local church of Christ-followers who love in outreach with intentionality so that those far from God may be brought closer to Him.
“You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Based on Jesus' teaching
We focus on reaching people in three key places He designated. in Jerusalem, or, our own city in Judea and Samaria, or, in our nation, and to the ends of the earth, or, our world. We partner with a number of local, national, and international ministries and create opportunities both large and small throughout the year for you to participate:
Each year, Life Church comes together - along with over 20 other partners, ministries, and local churches - to be a part of serving our communities here in WNY and sharing the love of Jesus through project teams executing simple, practical acts of kindness. As each one approaches, you'll be able to learn about the projects our Life Church members are leading and sign up to join one of the teams!
LOCAL MINISTRY PARTNERS
We not only intentionally Love & Serve through our own events, but have a number of local ministry partners that we support financially, with volunteer support, or both!
The Buffalo Dream Center, the Buffalo City Mission, Compass Care of Buffalo, Love Builds Bridges, the Tri-Community Food Pantry, and Youth Advantage are just a few of the organizations we supported last year. We also host regular blood drives and can drives to benefit our community.
EIGHT DAYS OF HOPE
When tragedy strikes, Eight Days of Hope chooses to run towards the impossible- with the strength and power of Jesus' name. While physically rebuilding communities destroyed by disasters, they desire to give those around them what they really need: Hope in Jesus.
We are partnered with Eight Days of Hope and volunteers from Life Church have joined them in their disaster relief efforts across the country.
NATIONAL MINISTRY PARTNERS
In addition to Eight Days of Hope, we also support the Next Level Relational Network and Carol McLeod Ministries, all of which have a substantial impact nationwide.
In a nation like India where ‘accepting Jesus’ may be no different than accepting 33 million other gods, evangelism is not enough. Since 1987, HBI has planted over 11,000 churches in 23 Indian states, and the number grows daily. Through a systematic combination of classroom training and field experience, people are trained over seven years; first as evangelists, then disciple-makers, then as church planters.
We have partnered with HBI and teams from Life Church regularly travel to India to lend support wherever it's needed.
INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY PARTNERS
In addition to HBI Global, Life Church also regularly partners with Dream Haiti, Freedom International, and Samaritan's Purse.
