Worship Service: 10 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 for individuals and families relocating to Utah. 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 longstanding relationships nurture an atmosphere of warmth and familiarity. A continuous commitment to caring for others has led our church to become a home to Native Americans relocating from their reservation and 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. We are a diverse group, following Jesus, longing for our true home.
Our Future add-on
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, a part of a partner ministry or a member of one of our daughter churches. 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.

Expanding the vision...
Salt Lake City is attracting residents from all over the world! New housing is sprouting up along our train lines and a vibrant economy is reshaping the city’s skyline. Located just outside 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 not only a part of our city’s story of growth and change, but also a part of God’s story: a story of continual faithfulness. This story is given to us in scripture but also one God is still writing today.
