A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR



A message from our pastor

Welcome to Lifehouse Church!  Our doors are open wide to everyone seeking a safe place to grow in God and in relationships with other believers.  You know, there are over 2,000 churches in the San Antonio area, and finding one that “fits” can be challenging.  I believe every church serves a unique purpose in its community, so let me tell you what Lifehouse is about.  At Lifehouse, our goal is to connect people to Real Love, Real Life, and Real Family.  (That happens to be our Mission Statement, too.)   Although you are welcome to fly under the radar until you get comfortable, my hope is that you won’t stay just a face in the crowd but will plug in and connect with our family here. 

    

We strive to create an atmosphere of loving acceptance, where people grow spiritually through vibrant worship, authentic relationships, Biblical teaching, constant prayer, and compassionate concern for the world.  Whether you’re a spiritual seeker checking things out, a baby Christian beginning your walk, or a committed believer looking to take root and reach out, you can find a home at Lifehouse Church.

LIFEHOUSE CHURCH

ABOUT US


Welcome to our church!  We think you’ll discover that our passion is to provide a place where people just like you can have a life-changing experience with God.

Our Doors Are Open

At Lifehouse, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. We hope that what you notice first about us is the life-giving nature of our ministry. Our goal is to infuse life and God’s love into people and families through engaging, powerful worship services that offer biblical truth in relevant and practical ways.


But it won’t take you long to discover that we’re more than just a Sunday church. In fact, we’re actually a network of small groups. And if you’d like to develop authentic and enduring relationships with others, you’ll be glad to know there are opportunities to join a LifeGroup all the time.


Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there’s relevant and transparent teaching, heart-felt worship, authentic friendships, constant prayer, and a compassion for those in need. We strive to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community, one life at a time.


So whether you’re a spiritual seeker who’s just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at Lifehouse.


In our relationship with God, our family, our friends, and our world ... it’s where new heights begin. We invite you to worship with us this Sunday!


In the meantime, you’ll find everything you need right here to get connected to Lifehouse online resources. You can use this site to check out our Student Ministries, listen to our weekend service, find information on our LifeGroups, or read about what’s going on around the church.


Enjoy, and please let us know if you have any questions.


Blessings,

Pastor Ryan


OUR STORY

​Planted in 1997, our church has strived for unity in all areas of faith in Jesus Christ. Lifehouse has been in the community of Stone Oak since 2004. In 2007 our current pastors Ryan and Kelly Coffey moved to San Antonio from Spokane, WA along with their two children, Jacob and Claire. In 2009 their third child Marley was born and is officially a "Texan". Ryan and Kelly have been leading Lifehouse towards helping people discover and walk in their God-given purpose. All are welcome at Lifehouse and in fact, on an average Sunday morning we’ll have Catholics sitting next to Lutherans, sitting next to faith-explorers, sitting next to Pentecostals. We strive for balance in everything we do and present the whole of the Gospel with a balanced approach. Lifehouse is not about being religious, we strive to be real and transparent. We believe our community needs less judgement and more relationship with God and each other. We are excited to see what God has in store for you in the days to come and we look forward to meeting you on Sunday at our 9:15 or 11am service. 

STATEMENT OF FAITH 

The credibility of one’s faith is based upon the object of their belief. Thus, the term “foursquare” has reference to balance in doctrine as well as in lifestyle. And though we strive for unity, we do have particular beliefs on certain matters of faith in Jesus. We are a Foursquare church and believe strongly in their mission to see people come to an understanding of Christ in our wold.

We are Foursquare

Currently The Foursquare Church has more than 1,700 U.S. churches; globally. The Foursquare Church has more than 66,000 churches and meeting places in 140 countries and territories. That is a significant impact in the less than 90 years since Angelus Temple opened in January 1923.
