Life2us.org Ministries is a non-profit 501(c)(3) ministry that serves only as a catalyst to help individuals discover what it means to BE the church -- followers of Jesus, focusing on developing authentic and personal relationships with God and our neighbor.
Life2us.org Ministries will use non-traditional methods to model BEING the 'church' without focusing on structure, programs, meetings, committees, and other legalistic methods of manipulating and controlling people into a certain mode of conduct that is self-serving and takes the focus off BEING disciples of Jesus.
Life2us.org Ministries focus will be the development of the ultimate relationships – becoming a friend and follower of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We will actively engage ourselves in prayer, worship, evangelism, service and discipleship, connecting with the global body of Christ.

Life2us.org Ministries Vision:
God gave us the vision for Life2us.org ministry in the fall of 2009. At a time of personal soul searching and seeking direction, the structure and vision of Life2us.org became clear. God is yearning for a people who have a heart and passion for Him. The church today seems to be more inclined toward things that are more man-focused than God-focused. God desires a people that want a relationship with Him and who will manifest the Kingdom of God reign and rule in their lives. God is actively seeking a people who know Him and will love Him not from a sense of duty and obligation, but from a personal relationship with Him. It was out of that vision the Lord said to establish a ministry that helps individuals establish a friendship with God. A friendship that transforms the heart, the home, the workplace and community.
Life2us.org is a non-denominational ministry that will partner together with individuals for as long as needed for worship, encouragement, and teaching to soak in the new wine God is breathing into His people.
We invite you to come join us on this exciting journey together.
