OUR HISTORY

In January 2010, The Life Church of the Assemblies of God was approved as a home missions church through the Assemblies of God, Michigan District.  In May of 2010, the first launch meeting was held in the Fellowship Hall of The Shores Church.  A weekly core group of roughly 15 met every week until September of 2010.

In December 2012, The Life Church secured a lease-to-own agreement for a church building on Martin Road in Warren, between Hoover and Schoenherr. The church desired to purchase the building, but at the time of the move had less than $1,000 in the bank.

On January 20, 2013, The Life Church had its official public launch, Big Day!, with more than 80 guests from the community.

In August 2013, The Life Church held its first baptism, as 17 people were baptized in a backyard pool.

In June of 2014, The Life Church signed documents, purchasing its first building on Martin Road, having raised the $57,000 required by Gods miraculous provision.

The church's first official members were brought into the church covenant in April of 2016, totaling 43 members, under the direction of co-pastors Lou Commisso and Larry Parker.
