We live in a world where people have never been more isolated yet simultaneously desire to experience deeper community. LIVE Church meets people in the isolation of the internet and connects them with others longing for community.
We are launching the first ever fully functioning online church community. This online church will utilize the newest technology available to inspire people to growth, engage people in mobile community, and release people to live on mission. Imagine house church meets online church. First century church principles meet twenty-first century innovation. LIVE Church creates an experience developed specifically for the online community. No old church service reruns, no church buildings, no smoke and lights, simply a casual church experience created for the online world. Your computer becomes the pew! We know that what starts online always moves offline into our real lives. People will find Jesus and grow in their relationship with him, engage in community with others, and then live out the mission of the church in their local communities.
