LifeChurch.LA is made up of people just like you who have chosen to serve their community with the incredibly great news of Jesus Christ.  The heart we have can not be described better than Ephesians 1: 18-20 "I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,  and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead"
