What We Believe

The Holy Scripture
We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, irrevocable and complete Word of God. (2 Tim. 3:16, 17)


The Eternal Godhead
We believe God is Triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the three in one. (1 John 5:7)


The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection. (Rom. 5:12)


Basis of Salvation
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe in Him and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord. (John 3:16; Rom. 5:8, Rom. 10:9-10)


Salvation through Grace
We believe that before salvation we have no righteousness of our own and must come to God through the righteousness of Christ. (Eph. 2:8)


Repentance and Acceptance
We believe that upon sincere repentance and a wholehearted acceptance of Christ as Lord, we are justified before God. (1 John 1:9)


The New Birth
We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a literal one and is the result of being born of the Spirit of God. (2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 2:20; John 3:5-7)


Daily Christian Life
We believe that it is the will of God that we live a sanctified and holy life, growing constantly in the Faith. (Heb. 6:1)


Water Baptism
We believe that baptism by immersion in water is an outward sign of the inward work of salvation.
(Matt. 28:19)


The Lord’s Supper
We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolical use of the bread and the juice of the vine. (1 Cor. 11:28)


Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power, and that His empowering is after the same manner as in Bible days. (Acts 1:8; 2:4)


The Spirit-Filled Life
We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit continually. (Rom. 8:1-2; 14-16)


The Gifts and the Fruit of the Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life. (1 Cor. 12:1-11; Gal. 5:22-23; Rom. 12:6-8; Eph. 4:11-13)


Moderation and Balance
We believe that all truth must be balanced with other scriptural truth in order to avoid any extreme or fanaticism and that moderation should show forth in our daily walk as a believer. (Phil. 4:5)


Divine Healing
We believe that divine healing is the provision of Christ to heal the sick in response to the exercise of faith, the prayer of faith, the prayer of agreement, anointing with oil, the gifts of healing or the laying on of hands. We believe that this provision of Christ is for everyone today. (1 Peter 2:24; Matt. 8:17; 18:18-19; James 5:14-16; 1 Cor. 2:9; Mark 16:15-18; Matt. 24:35; Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33)


The Second Coming
We believe that the Second Coming of Christ is literal and inevitable.
(1 Thes. 4:16-17)


Church Membership
We believe it is our sacred duty to identify and actively participate with the local and visible church of Christ. (Acts 16:5; Heb. 10:25)


Civil Government
We believe that the laws of the land should be upheld at all times except in matters opposed to the Word of God. (Rom. 13:1-5)


The Final Judgment
We believe that all shall stand one day before God in final judgment, and there receive eternal reward or eternal judgment. (2 Cor. 5:10; Rev. 20:11-13)


Heaven
We believe that heaven is a literal place, eternally existent. (John 14:2; Rev. 7:15-17)


Hell
We believe that hell is a literal place of eternal torment for all who reject the Lord Jesus Christ. (Rev. 20:10, 15)

About

Welcome to LifeWay!

Church for the Real World … Tallahassee, Florida

Thank you for visiting LifeWay Community Church! Our vision is to move people into a real and growing relationship with Christ. Our purpose is to connect people with God, each other, and the world.


Connecting With God – Services are held at 10:30 AM on Sundays and 7 PM Wednesdays at 1506 Bannerman Road. We have an adult service, AMP’d Youth Ministry, Sunday Morning Middle School Class, as well as a service for LifeWay Kids (K – 5th grade), a preschool class, and nursery. Come find out why so many call us home!


Connecting With Each Other – The best way to connect with each other at LifeWay is through Life Groups. In a Life group, people study God’s Word together and are in a safe environment to discuss the issues and challenges of life. It’s also where they pray, care for one another, and are missed if they don’t show up. For a complete list of groups please contact the church office.


Connecting With The World – We connect with the world through serving and volunteering. Either fill out a LifeWay Connection Card during a Sunday Morning Celebration Service or call the church office (850.660.0108). One of our staff members will be happy to help you get connected in your area of interest.

FACTS

Q. – Do you have Life Groups?
A. – Absolutely!!!

Life Groups are the best way for people to get connected at LIFEWAY. We are more than a church that meets on weekends. We also are a network of small groups that meet throughout the city at different times and locations through the week. Life Groups are one way that we provide opportunities to build meaningful and lasting relationships with one another. Our Life Groups run in three terms -spring, summer, and fall. They meet at different times and locations around the city. You can explore Life Groups by picking up the current Life Group Directory at the Welcome Center.


Q. – Do you offer a nursery during service times for our babies?
A. – Yes, we offer a nursery & preschool Ministry (Birth to 2 yrs)

We provide an environment dedicated to your little ones. LifeWay provides a safe, nurturing climate for your child. We use a state-of-the-art registration system that gives parents a worry-free experience. All classes are monitored and adequately staffed with the proper teacher/child ratio. Your child will be delighted with age appropriate activities and lessons where they’ll learn about God from gifted teachers that can articulate the gospel at their level.


At L.W.C.C., your child will learn about God’s love through worship and creative activities, learning these three truths: (1) God made me; (2) God loves me; and (3) Jesus wants to be my friend forever.


Q. – Do you offer a teaching environment for our pre-school children?
A. – Yes, it is called LifeWay Chapel (3 – 4 year olds)

We believe in introducing praise and worship to our little ones. This time is filled with music, puppets, games and activities that your three, four, and five year olds will enjoy while teaching them what it means to worship the Lord. This is a fun and meaningful time for the children, one they will come home talking about. We want to help your child discover that Jesus is a friend forever.


Q. – Do you offer children’s services during Sunday morning worship?
A. – Yes, LifeWay Children’s Ministry is K – 5th grades

Services start at 10:30 am.We are partnering with parents to lead children into a growing relationship with God. We welcome your kids to an exciting time filled with incredible praise and worship, amazing character performances, and an exciting journey through the Good Book as we bring the Bible to life before their very eyes! Our talented staff and volunteers use an endless number of creative and innovative teaching methods that are relevant to the ever-changing culture of a child. Your child has their own seat in each service, but we guarantee they’ll only need the edge!


Q. – Are there opportunities to volunteer at LifeWay C.C.?
A. – Yes there are.

Serving at one of our services is an expression of Worship. We have outlined some immediate needs below. To volunteer, you may either fill out a LifeWay Connection Card during a Sunday morning service or just call the office.

  • Greeting Team
  • Usher Team
  • Media Central (audio/visual)
  • Media Resource Center
  • Worship Team
  • Children / Nursery Ministries
    To become a LifeWay children’s volunteer you must desire to help lead kids into a growing relationship with God!


If you would like to serve in any of these areas, please contact us via email at pe@lifewaycc.com or by phone at 850-668-0108. We will promptly find the perfect place for you! Note that you will need to fill out a volunteer application and background check form.
Our vision is three-fold:

  1. To help children trust God no matter what
  2. To help children make wise decisions
  3. To help children treat others the way they want to be treated


Q. – Does LifeWay offer services for our Middle & High School Children?
A. – Yes, LifeWay Youth Ministries meets on Sunday Evenings at 6 PM

LifeWay Youth helps bridge the gap between not understanding God and having a relationship with Him. It’s kind of like eating Pringles Potato Chips, once you pop, you can’t stop. Starting to attend church regularly creates an unquenchable hunger to discover more about this Creator of the Universe and the personal plan He has for our lives. Getting involved with other great youth in dynamic services, inviting others to join in the experience, going to youth camps and youth conferences and living the life is just the start of why we exist.

L.W.Y.M. exposes God for what He is, an everlasting and ever-increasing faithful God in our lives who desires personal relationships. But it is up us to respond to this great relationship, and as we reach out to Him, He embraces us, for the journey of a lifetime!
