WHO WE ARE

OUR CHURCH

LIFE Christian Church constituted on April 12, 2015 with a vision to lead people to L.I.F.E. in Jesus.

We are a church family dedicated to building our relationship with Jesus Christ and with each other. The Word of God is essential to our faith. We seek to understand and obey God and His Word through Bible Studies, LIFE Groups, Prayer and Preaching. In our church we strive to love others as Christ has first loved us and build genuine relationships where each person is a recipient of God’s love and care. We are committed to making disciples of all nations to be shepherds of God’s flock carrying out the good work God calls us to in our local and international missions.

Our Pastor, Shaw Okawara, is originally from Okinawa and his wife, Noe, is originally from Seattle. Pastor Shaw is a bi-vocational pastor, also working as a Physical Therapist. They have three young children and consider it the highest honor to love and serve God and His people.

 
 
MISSION & CORE VALUES

LORDSHIP (JOHN 14:15)

We believe Jesus is our Savior and Lord, and we are committed to obey Him. We surrender our lives and purpose in obedience to His will.

We strive for genuine relationships where each person is loved and cared

for just as Christ loved us.
