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 quarter, Life Church comes together 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!
Festifall is a day for us to Love and Serve our community with a family-friendly, low-cost event hosted right on the Life Church campus. Each fall we host thousands of WNYers on our property while they enjoy free treats, games, activities, touch-a-truck, a petting zoo, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, and more.
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.
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.
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.
