Our Life Marks are a set of attributes in an individual’s life that reflect the Church’s Mission. As a result of Connecting People to Life in Jesus, we expect that followers of Jesus are actively engaged in our Strategy (lifeWorship, lifeGroup, lifeServe) at the Church will be able to say:

Life Marks Assessment
The Life Marks Assessment has been designed to help you discover a Scriptural list of practices and attitudes that are foundational to the Christian life. They help sum up that substantial list into something clear, concise and accessible. Life Marks are like gauges on a dashboard that monitor progress to living a life on purpose, that is in the Word and striving to be a reflection of Christ Jesus to the world.
We encourage you to take a Life Marks Assessment. The questions will help you identify your current level of alignment with each Life Mark. Based on your responses it will provide personalized recommendations for resources and actions that you can use to create and manage your own personal growth plan.
