What makes Life Church so unique? We like to think it’s our team approach to ministry. At Life Church we believe that everyone is unique, endowed with gifts, talents and abilities to be shared with others. By doing so, we not only meet the varied needs of those “within” the church, but “outside” the church as well. It’s true: Together Everyone Accomplishes More!
Everything we do at Life Church is based on 12 Core Values that we believe are central to our existence. These help us decide what we will and will not do as a church, and keep us focused on what God has called us to be.
We honor God’s Word as our final authority as it provides the pathway to success in life.
We honor the Holy Spirit by seeking His direction and wisdom and relying on His power for our daily lives.
We practice a lifestyle of worship exalting Him in our homes, church and community.
We invite God’s intervention through a heartfelt, fervent prayer life which is essential for every believer.
We celebrate and honor all God’s people as we serve and build His Kingdom together.
We practice Christ-like generosity through our tithes, offerings, and life’s resources.
We equip people to be effective in ministry and life, assisting them to discover their purpose in life.
We provide biblical principles in a practical, relevant style, which is able to connect to your daily life.

The weekend experiences are designed to appeal to those who are not currently familiar with a church environment and at the same time connecting with believers through powerful music and relevant teaching."

ABOUT OUR LEAD PASTORS
“Love God. Love People. Do Something,” is a phrase Pastor Randy Landis, Sr. speaks and puts into action. As a visionary leader, he fosters the diverse congregation of Life Church which he founded in 1990. Life Church, based in Allentown, PA, is one house with many rooms. Pastor Randy is a respected leader in his community and across the globe serving as a business consultant, missionary and a pastor to pastors. He is a member of the Board of Trustees for the Pedro Martinez Foundation and Lincoln Leadership Academy.
His entrepreneurial spirit led to the creation of a social enterprise, Café Vida, which revitalized a vacant storefront in his hometown and the proceeds of which support local non-profits doing important work for the community.
Pastor Randy believes we are “better together” and epitomizes the word “partner” supporting countless local and global initiatives. One of those closest to his heart brings playgrounds to children in the poorest communities in the world. Pastor Randy and his wife, Maribel, have been featured in Ministries Today, one of the top Christian magazines distributed in the U.S. and the world. They have four children and are the proud grandparents of three.
