We are a church that hosts the presence of God.

We invite you to Life Church. We know how challenging it can be to find a church where you feel like you belong. For nearly 35 years, we’ve built a loving church community in the Greater Tampa Bay area of Wesley Chapel and Spring Hill that provides the ministries families need to thrive in their faith and life. Choose a location, attend a service, and encounter God's presence to experience the change only He can bring.
