Welcome... You Belong Here!


We believe that it is in the building of relationships that true community transformation occurs.


Many people think of a church as a destination, a time, or a building. It is not. A church is a gathering of Christ-centered, caring individuals with a passion to be the hands and heart of Christ in the larger community. It is a place to engage in “Community transformation through the love of Christ.” LifeTree is such a place.

LifeTree Staff...

Our goals for 2020 are simple. We want to have Fun, Make new friends, Build stronger and better relationships between our neighbors and our Lord Jesus the Christ! Oh... and we also want to build a new church! Want'a join us?  


At LifeTree Church we believe the Bible is truly God's message to us. We believe it was inspired by the Holy Spirit and gives us insight into the mind of God. 

We believe in the Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We celebrate two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: We believe Christians should be people on the move... living and proclaiming their faith not in words but in the actions of their hands and heart!


About Crystal…

In addition to leading our Praise and Worship team, Crystal is a State Representative for our Celebrate Recovery Program. She brings the gift of an incredible voice and a passion for the Lord to her ministry.



If the church is to continue to be the hands and heart of Christ, then the church must find a way to reach the next generation – especially the unchurched or de-churched, regardless of their age.


The church is about relationships with our neighbors and with Christ. Relationships build trust. Trust empowers people to step boldly where they might not otherwise venture. This is the vision of LifeTree. This is why we are launching soon as a brand new church.
