Worship Service: 11 am Sundays

Our Story

How it all started...

In the heart of Salt Lake City, our church has been a part of the 9th and 9th neighborhood story since the 1950s. Founded by immigrants from the Netherlands after World War II, our church became a home away from home, and members became family to one another, most living only blocks from one another and the church. Today, this sense of family is still evident and you will hopefully feel an atmosphere of warmth and familiarity that longstanding relationships are bound to nurture.  A continuous response to the plight of “the other” has led our church to become a home to Native Americans relocating from their reservation, to Cambodian refugees fleeing political oppression. Throw in university students pursuing academic endeavors in a new place, Chinese Americans settling in the valley, urban professionals relocating to our city, locals exploring life outside their culture and you start to get a picture of the faces that together call themselves Life in Christ. 
Our Future add-on

Expanding the vision...

Our City is Growing!
Salt Lake City is attracting residents from all over the world! We see new housing sprouting up along our train lines and a vibrant economy reshaping the city’s skyline. Just outside of downtown, our own neighborhood is experiencing its share of growth and change, as older homes and businesses are renovated to serve another generation. Our church is a part of our city’s story of growth and change, but it is also a part of God’s story, a story of continual faithfulness.

We Are a Part of God’s Story
We have seen God’s work among us from the beginning, more than 60 years ago. God brings people from all over the world to us. Some become a permanent part of our larger church community, whether a part of Life in Christ’s congregation or a part of a partner ministry on our campus. Others are with us for a time before they leave, equipped to do ministry elsewhere, whether the next town over or on the other side of the world. By God’s grace, we remain committed to our place in our neighborhood, in Salt Lake City, Utah, a community committed to knowing, loving, and serving each other and our neighbors.

Our Campus Is a Gift
Our campus has been a tremendous gift to our congregation as well as to many other Christian congregations and ministries in its 60+ years. Each week Life in Christ shares its campus with congregations from South Sudan and Burma; The Vine Institute, a Christian leadership training center; and Narcotics Anonymous. Over the years, integral Christian ministries have had their start with Life in Christ and its members, and numerous multicultural congregations have found a home.  Prayerfully consider how you can help reinvent Life in Christ’s church campus, a place that serves multiple congregations, Christian ministries and neighborhood groups.
