Our Story

Christian Life began in 2002 with 4 couples meeting in a living room. Today, the church has grown to impact thousands in the Richmond, Chester, Chesterfield & Tri-City area. Making every effort to help those who are far from God to make the next step in connecting with Him, we are unapologetically passionate about three things ...

Loving God

We believe that God is a good God and His grace is so irresistible that those who don’t know Him will come to know Him if they are introduced to Him. Our desire is to see people fall in love with God and develop a relationship where He becomes the number one focus of their lives. (Luke 10:27)

Loving People

Consistently throughout the Bible we find that how people treat one another is the greatest indicator as to how they love and serve God. Our desire is to see people connect and build relationships within the church, as well as have a heart for those who are far from God.
(Luke 10:27)

Loving Life

Jesus said that He came to bring the best kind of life that anyone could have. We believe that people who live a life pursing this presence and Spirit of God will have the most fulfilling and satisfying life. (John 10:10)

Our Ministries

Plan A Visit

We understand that attending a church for the first time can be an overwhelming experience. Here are some things you can expect when you are with us.

The Service

The services are 75 minutes long and you may want to come a little early to make sure you get good parking. The service will include some great music, a message that is relevant to your day-to-day life, and great people who look forward to getting to know you.

Where do I go?

When you come through the main doors of the building, please touch base with one of our service hosts in the black “Welcome” t-shirts and let them know it’s your first time attending. They will gladly show you around and answer any questions you might have.

What should I wear?

Most people dress in casual attire for our weekend services. We are more concerned about your inside than your outside, so dress how you feel comfortable and you will fit right in!

For Your Kids

We have an incredible kids program for children up through 6th grade that your kids will love! Security is important to us, so we have volunteer security officers throughout our facilities as well as a secure check-in system to ensure your child can worship in a safe environment.

Where We Meet

We are conveniently located off I95 and easily accessible from Richmond, Chesterfield, Chester, Colonial Heights, Hopewell, Fort Lee, and the surrounding area.
