OUR
STORY

HOW IT ALL STARTED...

Life Fellowship opened its doors in 2002 and in mid-2010 Pastor Chris became the Senior Pastor. Since that time the church has seen enormous growth as it has mushroomed from 80 to more than 3,500 people who now call Life Fellowship their church home.

Life Fellowship has become known in North Dallas as a welcoming community of Christians. Guests are captured by its spirit and vision and are enthused by the opportunity to be a part of a growing church.

2002-2010

OUR MCKINNEY CAMPUS

In 2015 Life Fellowship purchased land on Highway 121 in Craig Ranch McKinney and immediately began construction on its new state-of-the-art building.

This strategic location has given us ease of access to the surrounding cities of McKinney, Allen, Frisco, Plano, Fairview, Melissa, Anna, The Colony, Lucas, and all of Collin County.

2011-2015

Building Completion and Growth

By 2017, our new building in McKinney was completed. This period witnessed not just the construction of a physical structure but the growth of our church community. The new campus, with its state-of-the-art facilities, attracted an increasing number of worshippers, highlighting the need for further expansion to accommodate our growing family.

2016-2017

Focusing on the Next Generation

Life Fellowship proudly celebrates the completion of our latest expansion, a state-of-the-art facility designed to nurture the next generation. This space now houses Lionheart Christian Academy, a 300+ capacity Christian Day Care, operational during weekdays. On weekends, it transforms into a vibrant hub where hundreds of children are inspired to embrace their faith. This expansion is more than a building; it's a commitment to our community's growth and the spiritual development of our children.

2017-2022

OUR Anna Campus

We're now embarking on an exciting new chapter. Plans are underway for the opening of our second campus in Anna, Texas, scheduled for August 2024. This expansion reflects our commitment to reaching more communities and spreading the message of hope, joy, and love.

BELIEFS
AND VISION

STATEMENT
OF FAITH

This is a summary statement of faith for Life Fellowship Church.

About the Scriptures
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit to write words of Scripture. The New Testament is our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine.
About God
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.
About the Holy Spirit
The fruits of the Spirit are the by-product of a Spirit-filled life and are evidence of spiritual maturity. The baptism in the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit are given to empower, encourage, and build up the body. We are instructed to diligently seek the gifts, use them in Biblical order and in the context of love.
About Mankind
We believe that man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.
About Salvation
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his sin. One who physically dies in his sins without Christ is eternally lost in the Lake of Fire, and therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel of repenting.
About Ordinances
We believe the two scriptural ordinances of a New Testament church are baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We follow our Lord’s command to give public evidence of our salvation with baptism by water and faithfully remember Christ’s cleansing blood and broken body with the elements of Holy Communion.
About Christian Life
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word and being baptized in the Holy Spirit, every believer will mature and receive power to be a witness in this world.
About The Church
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and making Him known to a lost world.

1. KNOW GOD

God wants to know you personally. More than just practicing religion, He wants to have a relationship with you. Our weekend services are where we focus on helping people to know God.

2. FIND FREEDOM

We all have things from our past that need to be settled once and for all. God’s process for you to experience freedom from your yesterday is to have the right people in your life. Connecting with the church through Life Groups is how we find life-changing community.

3. DISCOVER PURPOSE

If you are looking for hope in a hopeless world, you will find it in your calling. You are an important part of God’s plan, and your life will never make sense until you discover your purpose. Our Growth Track is made up of two classes designed to help you in this important step.

4. MAKE A DIFFERENCE

This step is God’s ultimate plan for your life to make a difference in the lives of others. When you make a positive impact on people’s lives by doing what you do well, it is then that the Bible says your joy will be complete. Through our Dream Team, we hope to connect every person to an opportunity to live their calling by serving others.
