Inviting people to experience a life-giving relationship with Jesus.
We see Jersey Life Church (JLC) being a fresh expression of Jesus’ love and being used by God as a catalyst to breathe life into a new movement which multiplies and helps other Churches “make all things new”, in South Jersey, across the region, and beyond.
- CONNECT – We are called to make a difference in in our community by passionately following Jesus and loving like he loved. That means we enter the lives of those in our community and are part of that reality on a daily basis (i.e. Connect).
- CREATE – Our vision, mission, and values compel us to create followers / make disciples. We want to the process to be simple vs. complex so we follow Jesus process. Sharing life, learning together, and walking side-by-side in small groups (Life Groups) and serving opportunities.
- COMMISSION – We believe that the best way to grow is to help others grow. As a disciple we are commissioned to produce new disciples. We achieve success in the multiplying process, by giving ourselves away through acts of compassion in our neighborhood and around the world.
A spiritually mature group of Christ followers called an Advisory Council and our pastoral staff serve as our spiritual leaders. We also have a District Board of Administration that provides governing oversight. JLC was never intended to be a “minister-centered” culture, instead the vision is to be a body of Christ model by having every member involved in ministry (internal to church) and mission (in the community). Accordingly, our ultimate accountability, individually and collectively is to God.
We are a congregation of the Penn-Jersey District of The Wesleyan Church, and our pastors are licensed and ordained under their spiritual authority.
Every year, Jersey Life Church undergoes a thorough review of our finances by an independent firm. This same firm manages all our financial transactions providing a system of checks and balances to eliminate the mystery of our financial system and replace it with a blanket of integrity.
Copies of the financial reports will be available to partners (members) upon request: firstname.lastname@example.org.
