Reaching the lost. Teaching the believers. Releasing ministers to serve.
The mission at Eternal Life Church is threefold: to reach the lost, teach and disciple believers, and release ministers to serve. Jesus commanded his followers to go into the whole world and make disciples of all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all that he commanded (Matthew 28:19-20).
Our vision for Eternal Life Church is how we are working to accomplish this mission.
Reaching the lost: Lillian, Alabama is our little corner of the world. This church was planted with the hope that its roots would spread throughout this community, shining the light of the good news of Jesus Christ to Lillian and the surrounding area.
Teaching and discipling believers: We are committed to Biblical teaching centered on Jesus Christ as our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King. Eternal Life Church seeks to guide believers as they grow in the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ at whatever point they may be in their walk of faith.
Releasing ministers to serve: Just as the head of the church, Jesus Christ, sent his disciples out into the world so we ourselves send our members and church family into the community to be lights in the darkness. We also send our family into the international community as missionaries to bring the message of hope to the world.
