All Are Welcome
Seriously. And by welcome, we mean that everybody deserves the opportunity to hear, experience, understand, and respond to the Good News about what Jesus has done and offers to us. No matter who you are, what you've done, where you've been, or how long you've been there, Lifehouse welcomes you to come and hear how Jesus can change your life.
What To Expect
First time to Lifehouse? Sunday’s at Lifehouse- whether in person or online- will be the highlight of your week! Each service includes live worship, a practical, understandable, and inspiring message from the Bible; and safe, clean, and fun environments that your kids will love!
Wondering what we offer for middle and high school students? Each week, students from all over the Peninsula meet on Zoom to grow in their faith, have fun, and build relationships with each other.
Mission and Vision Statement
Lifehouse exists to invite all people to live an uncommon life by:
(Being a disciple)
Doing Life Together
(Being in community)
Getting In The Game
(Being equipped to serve)
Leaving A Legacy
(Being a steward)
Every family, business, organization, or church has values...written or unwritten statements that shape the seen and felt realms. Lifehouse is no different. Our core values undergird how we make decisions as a church, what is important to us, and what we hope people sense and feel when they encounter Lifehouse.
It’s never about our preference but always about our mission, and the mission is to reach people with the Gospel.
Everyone is made in the image of God and is valuable, matters, and will be honored at Lifehouse.
We give our best effort in preparation and quality, and trust God for the outcome.
We will intentionally create atmospheres and opportunities for people to be in and grow through relationships.
We will not hoard what God blesses us with; we will be gracious in giving, knowing we reap what we sow.
We will actively engage our city and contribute in ways that makes it better for all.
John & Kristen Ware
John & Kristen Ware were born and raised in Newport News, VA, so it’s no surprise they love the 757. After 10 years of serving as youth pastors in various places, they felt a call to start a new church whose sole purpose is to invite ALL people to live an uncommon life by following Jesus, doing life together, getting in the game, and leaving a legacy.
Fun Facts: John is a fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars (and no, he’s not the only fan in the 757) and is an advocate for people who stutter. Kristen is an artist in her own right and enjoys being a full-time mom to their three adorable, lively boys: Jaxson, Judah, and Dallas.
