Before Living Church began, it existed in the heart of God. God laid on our hearts the belief that there’s more. Our logo is an asterisk. It’s more than a shape, it’s a symbol, reminding us that we can never be satisfied, but always striving to attain all that God has for us. We believe there’s more.
In 2010, a team of individuals began to make preparations to leave other ministry positions and full-time jobs and move to Mansfield to launch Living Church. On October 10th, 2010, Living Church opened its doors to the people of DFW. For the first 5 years, LC met in a rental facility here in Mansfield. Every week, a faithful team arrived early to setup and teardown everything needed to create an environment for people to connect to Jesus.
In 2014, we began searching for a permanent home. With the explosive growth in Mansfield this proved to be very challenging. After a year of searching, the Lord answered our prayers, and directed us to another church in our city. They had a need, and we had a need. God brought us together to answer the prayers of both congregations. The Lord blessed us with not only a permanent home, but some new family members to fill it. We began an 8 month full interior and exterior renovation, and on May 3rd, 2015, we celebrated the Grand Opening of our new facility.
Since moving into our new location, every aspect of ministry has grown exponentially. We’ve seen hundreds saved, hundreds baptized, and have received countless stories of life transformation. Because of this massive and expedited growth, God called us to charge and we purchased 36 acres of land off of highway 287 to build the future home of Living Church and reach generations to come.
At the end of 2019 Living Church was growing so quickly that we had reached capacity at our Matlock location. We were charging forward on our future building but knew we couldn't just wait to reach more people. So we made the decision to move forward and move into Willie Pigg Auditorium. As we were preparing, 2020 and Covid19 began. Despite all the obstacles and challenges, Living Church and our incredible team pushed forward. We produced online services, served our community, and took the step to open the doors of Living Church at Willie Pigg Auditorium in June of 2020. Now, every weekend we set up and tear down church so we have more room to see lives changed. We know it's not about the building, and we will leverage Willie Pigg Auditorium, our Matlock location, and the future home of Living Church to reach all the people.
We are so thankful for God’s direction and provision, and we know THERE'S MORE. We hope you’ll come and be a part of the next chapter!
Our mission is to show the love of Jesus to people who know Him and don’t know Him.
