The Church has endured severe division throughout the centuries over non-essential issues. And we don’t want to get caught up in this frenzy of splintering relationships. So for the purpose of fellowship and unity, we put our focus on these core beliefs of Christianity:
LifeHouse Church is an inter-denominational church. “Inter-denominational” simply means that people in our church may have different denominational convictions, but instead of letting them divide us, we choose to focus on the same essential Biblical core beliefs that unite us. We may have different backgrounds or unique styles of worship, but our purpose is the same. Our purpose is simply to follow Jesus’ two main teachings in the Bible:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind… And love your neighbor as you love yourself.”
– Matthew 22:37-39 (The Great Commandment)
“ Go into all the world, make disciples of all nations, and baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”
– Matthew 28:19 (The Great Commission)
In connection with the LifeHouse Church Network, we try to live by these two passages. Members of this network have the same cause, values, statements of faith, and shared discipleship systems. The Network does not restrict or control individual churches, but instead, provides support and accountability without promoting a denominational agenda.
